Reliable solutions for factory, machine, and plant automation
What is industrial communication? Essentially it is your key to future competitiveness! The future of manufacturing is 5G, Wifi, Industrial Ethernet, and IIoT. With our industrial-suited, robust high-quality products for the intelligent control of PLC, sensors and actuators, we support you in transforming your factory into a Smart Factory.
Industrial communication from a single source. From the sensor, actuator and control level to the ERP-system – we work together with you to realize entire network cabling solutions for the reliable transmission of the highest data volumes. We provide the highest quality products because each individual component is required to maintain machine up-time and avoid costly downtime. Therefore, our connection solutions are ideally suited for demanding conditions and offer maximum reliability under chemical, mechanical, and thermal stress.

Industrial Ethernet vs. Fieldbus
At LAPP you get the best out of two worlds!
Industrial Ethernet is a young technology that has clear advantages over classic fieldbus systems including offering a seamless network infrastructure from the sensor/actuator level via the control level to the office level – a seamless, transparent communication.
Fieldbus technology is suitable to connect complex devices at the field and control levels. It is characterized by lower installation costs and simple expansion of sensors and actuators. PROFIBUS® is therefore suitable for the transport of small data volumes and is limited to a small number of stations.
PROFINET® offers an address range for an almost unlimited number of devices and can send and receive significantly larger data volumes at high speed (10 Gbit/s compared to 12 Mbit/s for fieldbuses).
