The introduction of Ethernet and Internet technologies in the fieldbuses of automation systems widely facilitates vertical integration. Control functions can coexist more easily with higher level functions such as supervision, production reporting or maintenance. But what does the response time of the control function become when architecture components -e.g. controllers, remote input-output modules or fieldbuses -are requested in parallel by other functions? In this paper, we focus on switched… CONTINUE READING
