epsg0217 EPSG Powerlink protocol was adopted by the IEEE as an international standard IEEE61158. It is the only Industrial Ethernet that has achieved this status. The IEEE standards for TSN and Powerlink are therefore, from the point of view of the IEEE, central components for industrial real-time communication.

The IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, is the world's largest professional association of electrical engineering and computer science engineers. One of their best-known accomplishments is the IEEE802.3 standard, also known as Ethernet. The IEEE working group Industrial real-time communication has worked on the definition of an Industrial Ethernet standard in the past two years. In March 2017 finally adopted the working group with the approval of 97% Powerlink as the sole IEEE standard.

"Industrial real-time communication has been a blank spot at the IEEE to date," Dr. Victor Huang, IEEE Industrial Standardization Standards Officer (IES) after the vote. "Powerlink combines high performance with full openness, ideally complementing existing IEEE communication standards." "The adoption of Powerlink as an IEEE standard is an important step in standardizing field-level industrial automation technologies," added Prof. Aleksander Malinowski, IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) Senior Adcom Member.
Picture above: EPSG CEO Stefan Schönegger sees the great potential of Powerlink as IEEE61158 standard in combination with the, also developed by the IEEE, TSN technology. "Openness has prevailed sooner or later in all areas of the globalized industry."
