“Globally, Ethernet is the most widely used protocol for factory automation. ODVA standards benefit machine builders by making it easy to implement products from various vendors into one system”, states Paul Kling, V.P. Sales, SEM USA. “Lexium MDrive products are also easy to implement into new or existing systems, reducing parts count and machine complexity. Setup is simplified with robust M12 circular connectors, and users select in software from EtherNet/IP, ModbusTCP or Profinet.”
