Multiprotocol technology for industrial Ethernet

The Industrial Ethernet Multiprotocol technology by Turck can be applied for anything that uses a host system with Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, or Profinet.


Turck's Industrial Ethernet Multiprotocol technology for Distributed I/O allows users to employ one device for three protocols—EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP and Profinet—creating easier integration with host control systems. Multiprotocol is designed to operate consistently across all Turck distributed I/O product families. The Industrial Ethernet Multiprotocol technology provides dependable application of the protocols for Turck’s entire Industrial Ethernet portfolio, ensuring easy device application, minimal maintenance and simplified product specification.

Turck’s Industrial Ethernet offering can be applied in any application that uses a host system with Modbus TCP/IP (client), EtherNet/IP (scanner) or Profinet (master). Upon network power-up, the Turck Ethernet device will recognize the network protocol available to the network.
