With "Bridge X," R3 now offers an industrial-grade wireless real-time data transmission solution based on Wi-Fi 6 and EchoRing. The high-performance and real-time-capable wireless Ethernet bridge is particularly suitable for applications in areas such as manufacturing or intralogistics and will be the focus of R3's trade fair presence during SPS 2022 in Nuremberg.
Bridge X enables broadband data transmission and brings the benefits of the latest Wi-Fi 6 WLAN standard with simultaneous URLLC communication via EchoRing. For wireless control of industrial transport and production systems, Bridge X provides the highest level of reliability by extending current transmission technologies with high-performance connectivity elements. Bridge X uses R3's proprietary EchoRing technology and is designed specifically for environments where autonomous systems must operate without interruption and with absolute fail-safe reliability.
In addition to the new Bridge X product, R3 will present the proven Bridge E at SPS 2022 (November 8-11, Messe Nuremberg, Hall 5, Booth 139), which recently received even higher reliability with the Summer Release due to one to two orders of magnitude lower packet loss rates and shines with new features. Among other things, Bridge E now has a new type of control interface (EchoRing Runtime Control Interface, ERCI), with the help of which the status of connected devices can be recorded script-based, and the respective functions can be adjusted via control command. In addition, the R3 team will present concrete applications of the EchoRing technology from various industries at SPS 2022. Even before SPS 2022, R3 will already be represented at ROKLive 2022 in Gothenburg, Sweden, from October 24-27, and further trade fair participation is planned for Automation Fair 2022 in Chicago, USA, on November 16 and 17.
