This means that old systems can be cost-effectively retrofitted with Ethernet networks. There is no need to lay any new network cables.
Ethernet communication over distances of up to 20 km instead of the usual 100 m is also possible. In addition to the cost savings, the short commissioning time is a further plus point. Once they have been wired, the devices automatically detect whether they are in a point-to-point, line or ring topology and configure themselves accordingly.
Old systems can be retrofitted with an Ethernet ring structure quickly, easily, and without any Ethernet expertise.
