Check Out This Month's Hot Topic

Modeling a Ring Network Topology in BlockSim

When designing a control system, a major consideration is the topology of the computer network that will be used to communicate between the human-machine interface (HMI) and the controlled devices. There are many topologies in use today, such as point-to-point, bus, star, ring, mesh, and hybrid networks. In order to select the best topology for the control system, it is necessary to understand the benefits and risks associated with each type of network topology. By modeling proposed network configurations in BlockSim, the analyst can predict the availability of each topology before the control system design is finalized.
