What is the “best redundancy protocol” for Industrial Networks? Usually, this question is posed by someone who wants an easy answer so that they can move forward with the comfort of knowing they are going to achieve the best outcome. A better question would be how do we design the network so as to meet the requirements of the Application(s) inside the Industrial Network. We investigate...
The Hirschmann BAT is a versatile wireless device which can carry out a variety of inbuilt functions. One of these functions is IP Binding when the BAT867 is operating as a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) sever. In this Tech Tip, we'll take you through the required steps to configure your BAT867 enabling IP DHCP Binding.
With the changes in the market coming alongside Industry 4.0 we have seen a huge shift in the structure of industrial networks with increased requirements for access to the data from the “shop floor” to the “top floor”. As this model moves, the line between the automation systems and the I.T. systems becomes blurred leading to new requirements to ensure that these converged systems operate with the same expected outcomes.
All Hirschmann managed switches support Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) which provides a common mechanism for network devices to relay management information within single and multi-vendor LAN or WAN environments. In this Tech Tip, we’ll show you how to use the built-in SNMP Browser in Industrial HiVision (IHV) to help you find relevant information from your switch.
Picture yourself as the operator of an industrial control system (ICS). Your job is to keep that system running because when it stops; the company fails to produce its product, resulting in lost sales, revenue, market share, and competitive edge. Because of the critical nature of the system, you decided to implement 24/7 visibility via remote access through the internet.
With the introduction of Industry 4.0, businesses are benefiting from preventative maintenance, analytics, machine learning and IoT, all of which require our ICS networks to share more data and become more interconnected
The OWL 4G is capable of sending emails using a range of mail services. The easiest way to do this is by triggering predefined emails using the on-board digital inputs. This Tech Tip will provide a basic script to trigger an email from the digital input using the email address configured in the OWL’s SMTP page.
This short technical note is an overview for those looking to implement the OPC UA Server on the HiOS Firmware platform 8.6.
Note: This feature is not available on all hardware, as of this post it is available for the BOBCAT series, RSP-Expanded, RSP, Rail Data Diode, Octopus, MSP, GREYHOUND and DRAGON range.
The purpose of this article is to assist in the understanding of how Hirschmann's Industrial HiVision is licensed, how the software updates work, and how to work with existing licenses.
Our last Hivision Tech Tip covered the basics of HiVision such as discovering devices on the network which is great for Hirschmann devices but other devices on the network are not supported out of the box. This Tech Tip will show you how third-party devices can be integrated into HiVision.
We’ve all been there. Simply minding your own business when an 8-legged monster crawls out to say hello. Everything is a blur; adrenaline starts pumping and your fight or flight instinct kicks in. If you’re lucky then you made quick use of the coffee table book or resident Ugg boot and got to walk away unharmed and only mildly terrified.
