LISLE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Molex has entered into an agreement with Phoenix Digital Corporation (PDC), a manufacturer of industrial fiber optic communications systems, to market and provide complete and redundant high-availability communication network solutions for industrial automation markets.
PDC products incorporate Ethernet-based smart switch technology in a secure and fault-tolerant communication platform. Designed to enhance any industrial network, the integrated platform increases plant level connectivity of process and power devices to the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), without the complexity of traditional IT-based solutions.
“Molex is pleased to work with PDC in bringing innovative Ethernet-connected devices to customers,” commented Riky Comini, director of industrial automation, Molex. “This agreement expands our fiber optic portfolio with complete end-to-end network solutions for the IIoT and expands our capabilities to deliver best-in-class communications systems globally.”
According to PDC president, Thomas Schaefer, “This is a very exciting opportunity to work with Molex, bringing our unique products to their IIoT focus and strategy. This agreement will provide the industrial market with Ethernet-enabled devices that are simpler to install, inherently secure, more robust and deliver superior connectivity.”
The PDC fiber optic Ethernet system incorporates distributed stacked core technology that enables redundant high-availability Ethernet connectivity, without requiring IP addressing or software configuration. Compatible with all protocols of Ethernet, the technology delivers a secure, simple to install and easy to maintain network with an MTTR of less than 30 seconds. The result is increased network uptime and expansion without disruption—essential elements for a high-availability industrial network.
Molex and PDC now offer a complete set of communication tools, providing higher throughput, greater flexibility, and increased reliability than previous conventional Modbus communication equipment. PDC Modbus optical communication modules provide multi-drop redundant fiber optic communications for high-reliability Modbus, Modbus/TCP, and Modbus & Ethernet networks, with on-the-fly Modbus multi-master multiplexing.
