TSN-Based Plotter

In this innovative demonstrator, you'll see the combination of Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) standards and OPC UA UDP Unicast with a retrofitted CANopen-based pick-and-place system to plot text using synchronised motor communication.

Data is being send via two real time flows over the multi-vendor TSN-enabled network between National Instrument (NI) devices. You'll see that the generated background traffic does not influence the flows and the independent drives are controlled synchronously in a deterministic manner.
