Bochum, Germany, May 18, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- However, the dynamic growth of Ethernet at packaging machines will weaken in the future. Up to the year 2012 87% of the packaging machine-builders will use Ethernet compared with 89% in the total machinery industry.
The use of Ethernet at the machines is divided into real time Ethernet and exclusive use of TCP/IP. In 2010 83% of the packaging machine-builders used Ethernet, 70% of them preferred real time Ethernet and 13% of them used exclusively TCP/IP at packaging machines. So packaging machines show a noticeably above average high portion of real time Ethernet. In the total machinery industry 52% of the machine-builders used real time Ethernet and 28% used exclusively TCP/IP in 2010.
To 2012 with 74% nearly three quarters of the packaging machine-builders will use real time Ethernet and with 67% over two thirds of the machine-builders in the total machinery industry. The exclusive use of TCP/IP will remain at 13% with packaging machine-builders from 2010 to 2012 while TCP/IP will sink from 28% to 22% in the machinery industry to 2012.
So packaging machines are above all pacesetters for the use of real time Ethernet. Its use almost exploded in the years from 2008 to 2010 from 42% to 70% of the packaging machine-builders while the reference values for the total machinery industry increased less dynamically from 35% to 52%.
The Quest Trend Magazine combines this development of Ethernet at packaging machines with five issues packaging machine-builders have been dealing with since 2005. These five issues highlight requirements to Ethernet, critical referring to problems and reasons for not using Ethernet at packaging machines.
These five issues are assigned to statements of the packaging machine-builders. They are as quotations of the packaging machine-builders 1. "All devices we need must be Ethernet-capable," 2. "The plurality of protocols is to criticize," 3. "… turning immediately to Ethernet, if the safety engineering was integrable," 4. "RJ45 plug problem!!!" and finally 5."Currently the use of Ethernet is not necessary."

The publication in the Quest Trend Magazine is based on the new Quest study "Ethernet and Safety Ethernet 2010 - 2012, trends and innovations from the view of the machinery industry" and also on two further Quest studies from the years 2008 and 2005 to Ethernet in the machinery industry. Highlights, table of contents and budget of the new Quest study to Ethernet is published on http://www.qtm.de/en/headlines.html
