Harting takes the Fast Track

AUTHOR: Inavate

Harting is targeting event applications with Fast Track Switching, an Ethernet-based switching technology.

Fast Track Switching is totally based on standard Ethernet, but adds a new switching method designed to ensure that industry-specific requirements on performance and determinism are fully met.

The key components in Fast Track Switching are Fast Ethernet switches in HARTING's Ha-VIS FTS 3000 product family, which can detect and identify customised automation profiles, accelerate their data-transmission speeds and prioritise them.
