Kontron introduces evaluation unit of new TSN networking card at SPS IPC Drives

Kontron introduces the first version of a network interface controller enabling Time Sensitive Networking (IEEE-802.1 TSN). The evaluation unit available shortly will be on display as part of a live demonstrator from November 28 to 30 2017 at the Kontron booth. The TSN specification guarantees the timely, high-availability delivery of data packets. In industrial environments, such as machine control applications in production, convergent, Ethernet-based TSN with guaranteed latency and Quality of Service with time synchronization can replace proprietary fieldbus systems and seamlessly communicate through to the IT layer. This makes real IIoT or Industry 4.0 based on Ethernet protocol standards possible.

With the Kontron PCIE-0200-TSN and Kontron PCIE-0400-TSN standard PCI Express network card and the associated network and switch drivers for Linux, industrial computers can be connected through a redundant ring-, line- or star-shaped TSN network. Utilizing this approach, Kontron's Box PCs, 19-inch servers, and workstations, namely its KBox C-series, ZINC19, and HPW product lines can be extended for TSN.

The Kontron TSN network card includes an integrated switch for redundant networks with two (PCIE-0200-TSN) or four (PCIE-0400-TSN) gigabit ethernet ports. It meets all specifications of IEEE 802.1, such as timing and time synchronization, traffic scheduling, frame preemption, stream reservation protocol and others (via update where applicable). Like all Kontron products, the TSN network card is especially suited for rough industrial environments and can be run in industrial temperature ranges from -40 to +85° C.
