Got networks? Think Hilscher: Your one-stop solutions provider for IoT and industrial communications.

Hilscher, a leading global specialist in network connectivity, provides solutions for all your networking challenges. Whether you’re an end-user or an equipment designer, our chips, gateways and embedded technologies offer multiprotocol networking support for any application.

To capitalize on the benefits of the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0, Hilscher has developed the netIOT family of products: Embedded chips and interfaces for IoT-enabling automation devices; and netIOT Edge Gateways for collecting data over existing factory networks.

Hilscher’s own netX “system-on-a-chip” network controller allows for universal Master and/or Slave connection to all popular communications protocols, including fieldbuses (CANopen, CC-Link, DeviceNet, Modbus and PROFIBUS) and industrial Ethernet (EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, POWERLINK, PROFINET and Sercos).

NEW for 2017: netX 90 ASIC for simple automation devices; and netX 4000, a sophisticated controller-class chip. Both are IoT-enabled with all the necessary security services and protocol support to put your devices and machines on the Industrial Internet. Built-in are OPC UA, MQTT and TSN.

Hilscher’s embedded products include the netRAPID netX chip-carrier to jump-start your design projects with easy OEM integration of networks and IoT in just days, rather than months. With the netJACK module, you can quickly add or change fieldbus and Ethernet protocols in a device, even in the field.

Hilscher’s gateway and proxy products are self-contained protocol converters with simple plug-in connections and Master and/or Slave configurations. The new netTAP 151 bridges any two real-time Ethernet networks. Our PC Cards come in all popular PC card formats for direct connection to any I/O network or controller. Our visualization solutions leverage standard web browsers so you can view your PLC processes—from anywhere, at any time

Hilscher also offers extensive engineering services to develop custom solutions tailored to your exact specifications. Contact Hilscher for more information on how we can support your application.
