Embedded Device Networking for Industrial Environments
Source: Multi-Tech Systems
N-TRON Corp. develops, manufactures, and markets highly reliable industrial network products. Ruggedized versions of computing equipment are commonplace in factories today. A large portion of this equipment is connected to the corporate network. Since industrial networking equipment has not been readily available, nodes are typically connected with individual wiring drops to climate controlled environments. This creates significant expense, complexity, and reliability issues. N-TRON solves this problem by providing a complete family of industrial networking equipment utilizing Multi-Tech's embedded SocketModem modem modules and SocketEthernet IP device servers. N-TRON chose the SocketModem and SocketEthernet IP because they provide the network connectivity options their customers and the ready-to-integrate devices helped reduce their development time and cost of getting their products on the market.
