Indel Gigabit Ethernet Fieldbus


1 GBit/s transfer rate

Cycle times from 7.8125 µs

Absolutely synchronous data transfer
 

The GinLink fieldbus is setting new standards in automation with a transfer rate of 1 GBit/s. The high fieldbus speed of the GinLink opens new approaches in control systems. Data is transmitted CPU-independently by the FPGAs guaranteeing lowest latencies and highest degree of synchronicity between master and slaves. GinLink is based on proven gigabit Ethernet technologies. Usage of standard industrial components lowers costs and guarantees maximum availability.
