POWERLINK now IEEE 61158 standard

POWERLINK has been adopted by the IEEE professional association under international standard IEEE 61158, the only Industrial Ethernet protocol to achieve this status. According to the EPSG, the IEEE views its standards for TSN and POWERLINK as core components for real-time industrial communication.

The IEEE′s industrial real-time communication working group has been working for the past two years on the definition of an Industrial Ethernet standard. In March 2017, POWERLINK was adopted as an IEEE standard with 97% of the vote.

"Real-time industrial communication had previously been a gap for the IEEE," explained Dr. Victor Huang, responsible for standardization at the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) following the vote. "With its combination of high performance and unrestricted openness, POWERLINK is the perfect complement to the other IEEE communication standards."

"The adoption of POWERLINK as an IEEE standard is an important step toward standardizing industrial automation technology at the field level," added Prof. Aleksander Malinowski, IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) Senior AdCom Member.
