What Are Communication Modules?

Communication modules transmit data and exchange messages between two different systems. These systems can include standalone machines, Ethernet servers or networking platforms like LonWorks and DeviceNet. Adapters, external communication enclosures, control modules and communication interface modules all fall under the category of industrial communication modules.

A communication module interacts with the computer’s message system to physically relay information across a network. In general, these modules have three essential tasks that remain constant throughout a range of applications. These three tasks include:

  1. Managing aliases: In programming, an alias describes different symbols or expressions that refer to the same thing. A communication module must remember and maintain different aliases for a variety of items to function correctly.
  2. Forwarding messages: The modules are responsible for identifying incoming messages from other robots and forwarding those messages to the appropriate locations.
  3. Sending messages: Finally, communication modules must be able to send outgoing messages to other robots located in a separate network or system.

Uses for Communication Modules

There are numerous applications for communication modules. The most notable is machine-to-machine (M2M) communication in various industries, including:

  • Manufacturing
  • Financial
  • Food production
  • Security
  • Robotics
  • Automotive
  • Traffic control

Industrial communication modules help devices communicate directly using any channels, including both wireless and wired connections.

M2M communication allows instruments to relay information regarding temperature, pressure, inventory levels, personal data and more to machines that execute an action. By using IP networks, these modules allow devices to communicate quickly while using a minimum amount of power.
