Moxa provides reliable Industrial Ethernet Solutions for the control network of Steel refineries

The demand for steel by industries worldwide has been growing steadily for many decades, and this increase in demand has given rise to increased competitiveness between steel mills in terms of profitability, production costs, and the quality of steel that is produced. In order to compete more effectively, steel mills are increasing product quality, maximizing process efficiency, increasing production yields, and reducing operating costs by turning to automation to modernize the monitoring and control of processes.

Steel mills are using industrial Ethernet with fiber cabling solutions to upgrade the monitoring and control of processes. In addition to overall cost and performance advantages, these solutions must be integrated with legacy control systems, be highly reliable in harsh, high temperature conditions that experience high EMC/RFI interference, and incorporate mixed-speed fiber ports, support longer network distances (typical of steel mill plant sites), and allow for future upgrades and expansion. Moxa provides complete solutions for the communication networks used in the steel refinery industry.
