Designing for the manufacturing environment requires an intimate knowledge of industry standards to ensure the infrastructure supports various environments on the plant floor. Considerations such as shock and vibration, handling of water or dust, temperature, washdown areas, exposure to acids or oil mixtures and electromagnetic noise must be taken into account when selecting solutions to support these harsh environments.
Environmental classifications and ratings based on Mechanical, Ingress, Climatic/Chemical, Electro Magnetic (M.I.C.E) attributes provide a method of categorizing the environmental classes required for each of the industrial areas and are rated as 1 = low, 2 = medium, and 3 = high.
Reference the below on-demand webinar and selection guides to learn more about how to design an infrastructure that adheres to M.I.C.E environmental ratings that meets industrial network performance expectations without overspending.
Harmonizing TIA language with international standards from ISO, IEC and CENELEC leads to a simplified/efficient TIA structured physical communication infrastructure deployment that ensures higher performance, security, and longevity. This session focuses on TIA network deployments standards, how to design an infrastructure that adheres to M.I.C.E environmental ratings without overspending while meeting industrial network performance expectations and benefits.
