  2. Background • Data networks interconnect computers, servers, and printers • Control networks connect sensors, actuators, displays, and other machines to each other, to remote monitoring sites, and to the Internet • All control networks perform a common set of functions: they sense, process, actuate, and communicate Internet

  3. Control Network Technology Requirements • Robust, reliable communications • Peer-to-peer protocol supports multiple media, efficient addressing and authentication • No single point of failure in the control system • Predictable, autonomous applications regardless of network traffic • Open standards based and Interoperable products • Large Ecosystem of cost effective solution • Best of breed products in commercial and home market • Confidence and leverage in a future proof environment

  4.

  16. Layer 2—Link Layer • Media access and framing • Ensures efficient use of a single communications channel • Raw bits of the physical layer are broken up into data frames • Link layer defines when a device can transmit a data frame • Also defines how destination devices receive the data frames and detect transmission errors • Features • CRC error checking • Media access—predictive p-persistent CSMA • Priority • Collision avoidance

  17. Busy Channel Packet Cycle Packet Packet Non-priority Slots Link Layer—Media Access • Predictive p-persistent CSMA • Channel access is always randomized over time slots • Number of time slots are varied based on collision avoidance algorithm • 16 to 1008 slots

  18. Busy Channel Packet Cycle 1 2 3 ... n Packet Packet Priority Slots Non-priority Slots Link Layer—Media Access Priority • Configurable priority messages • Reserved time slot • Reduces overall channel bandwidth • Priority slot number is assigned at installation time • No collisions possible during priority portion of packet cycle following preceding packet • Highest priority message has predictable response time

  19. Link Layer—Media Access Benefits • Linear response time over 99% of channel bandwidth • Critical for open media such as power line • Remove and attach devices without halting communications • Predictable performance for high-priority messages
