List of automation protocols

This includes list of communication network protocols used for process or industrial automation, building automation and substation automation applications.

Process automation protocols

*FOUNDATION fieldbus

*Profibus - by PROFIBUS International.

*PROFINET IO

*CIP (Common Industrial Protocol) - Can be treated as application layer common to DeviceNet, CompoNet, ControlNet and EtherNet/IP

*Controller Area Network utlised in many network implementations, including CANopen and DeviceNet

*ControlNet - an implementation of CIP, originally by Allen-Bradley

*DeviceNet - an implementation of CIP, originally by Allen-Bradley

*EtherNet/IP - IP stands for "Industrial Protocol". An implementation of CIP, originally created by Rockwell Automation

*EtherCAT

*Interbus, Phoenix Contact's protocol for communication over serial links, now part of PROFINET IO

*"'HART Protocol

*Modbus RTU or ASCII

*Modbus-NET - Modbus for Networks

*Modbus/TCP

*Modbus Plus

*EGD (Ethernet Global Data) - GE Fanuc PLCs (see also SRTP)

*FINS, Omron's protocol for communication over several networks, including ethernet.

*Host Link, Omron's protocol for communication over serial links.

*Mechatrolink - open protocol originally developed by Yaskawa.

*MelsecNet/10, supported by Mitsubishi Electric.

*Optomux - Serial (RS-422/485) network protocol originally developed by Opto 22 in 1982. The protocol was [http://www.opto22.com/site/documents/drilldown.aspx?aid=1941&title=Optomux+Protocol+Guide openly documented] and over time used for industrial automation applications.
