Echoring supports ultra-reliable, low-latency wireless M2M communications that deliver similar performance to current wired systems. Many companies seeking to deploy industrial Internet of things (IIOT) or Industry 4.0 solutions need wireless networks that can match the performance and reliability of existing wired control networks. R3’s Echoring delivers real-time performance levels with latency down to only 1ms, even in challenging industrial environments. A range of software solutions in combination with hardware modules, devices and reference designs based on Texas Instruments WiLink 8 Chip with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity is now available to simplify integration with existing networks. Industrial communications protocols supported include PROFINET, PROFIsafe, Ethernet, and SafetyNet. For integration, operation and maintenance, additional tools are available.
As part of its distribution agreement, Arrow will be offering a starter kit that allows users to test Echoring’s performance in their own production environment by substituting the kit’s wireless stations for existing Ethernet connections.
