COMMUNICATIONS

Rough Environments & Industrial Communications go hand in hand. Exposure to chemicals, vibration, equipment wash downs and extreme temperatures results in major environmental challenges when implementing a security system in an industrial application.

 

In addition, the infrastructure and operating systems of these environments are of a critical priority, which means the architecture of all network systems needs to be carefully designed with redundancy in mind to maintain operational integrity and minimize the risk of any downtime in SCADA or other network communication systems.

NETWORK PROTOCOLS

From fiber optic to self healing wireless mesh networks, we are on the forefront of modern network solutions. ​Wireless mesh networks provide both redundancy and self healing as each node in a mesh network is connected to at least one other node and uses intelligent routing to find other nodes in the event the network loses its primary connection. 

​Focal Automation is able to utilize any network protocol that best fits the needs of the client. We are able to support:

  • Allen Bradley

    • (DF1, DH+,DH485, DeviceNet, ControlNet, Ethernet I/P, MNET, CIP)

  • FOUNDATIONFieldbus

  • Barton ScanCom

  • Modbus +

  • Hart

  • Ethernet

  • ProfiBUS

  • ProfiNET

  • BSAP

  • DNP3.0

  • XSPOC

  • Modbus ASCII/RTU
