Yokogawa signs network switch supply agreement with Belden

14 October 2011

Yokogawa Electric Corporation has signed a supply agreement with Belden which will allow Yokogawa to provide a long-term and stable supply of Hirschmann's Industrial Ethernet switches to its customers for use with the Yokogawa Vnet/IP(R) high-speed control network.

The agreement will see Yokogawa selling the network switch products to its customers
and providing maintenance services that facilitate the configuration of control networks.

Yokogawa will offer Hirschmann brand network switches because of its low failure rate and high environmental resistance. In addition, Hirschmann's Industrial Ethernet switches are said to offer a good choice for configuring control networks in plants in demanding environments that must operate with long-term stability.

The Yokogawa Vnet/IP high-speed control network allows control information to be transmitted between the devices such as human interface stations and controllers that comprise a control system. The Vnet/IP control network is used in Yokogawa's CENTUM VP integrated production control system and ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system.
