Test Solutions for Industrial Communication Systems

Reliable wireless communication in industrial environments

Wireless connections enable machines to be deployed more flexibly. Moreover, wireless communication is the key to connecting locations and areas that wired systems can only reach with great difficulty, if at all. At the same time, data transmission in industrial environments typically requires high reliability and low latency.

Testing the suitability of industrial wireless systems

Our goal is to eliminate uncertainties concerning the use of wireless communication in production processes.

To this end, we offer solutions for testing of industrial communication systems. From the beginning of the planning process, we assess the extent to which a given wireless system is suited to specific application scenarios, and how well it fits in with existing environments. This supports end users and manufacturers of wireless industrial communication systems alike:

  • End users receive a clear overview of which transmission technologies and standards are potentially suited to their industrial application, enabling them to directly and transparently compare competing solutions.
  • Manufacturers benefit from a simplified design process for their industrial communication solutions, and are able to perform more targeted marketing of their products with specifically tested performance parameters.

Reference project “ReICOvAir”

In the Celtic project “ReICOvAir”, the project team led by the Fraunhofer IIS has developed a new test system for industrial wireless communication. The test system consists of a software-based and a hardware-based test bed. Both test beds are proof-of-concept solutions for testing the performance of wireless transmission systems in terms of measuring and evaluating reliability, latency and throughput.
