Today’s industrial systems operate in a realm where many machines and components on a shop floor as well as all over the world are connected as part of a large production network. For machine manufacturers and plant operators this results in a number of challenges, such as the precise synchronization of devices within such distributed systems.
The Precision Time Protocol (PTP) helps to ensure accurate timing throughout the network. It is used in many different industries. TTTech Industrial’s product Edge PTP is used by customers such as B&R to implement highly accurate clock synchronization in their TSN networks.
