After the basics are covered (about two thirds of the book), the book has an overview of the currently used industrial protocols. It includes an overview of Web Services including XML and SOAP. It then briefly covers wireless networking and Power Over Ethernet (POE).
I think that just about anyone in the computer or controls industry would benefit from this book, from beginners to seasoned engineers. Highly recommended.
It is a Rosetta stone of Ethernet jargon translated into concepts a journeyman field tech can sink their teeth into. One gets the sense Perry Marshall and John Rinaldi have clawed through years of hands-on installation and troubleshooting, and distilled the results into this essential primer.
I'm fairly new to factory-floor Ethernet applications, and was exposed to a lot of useful information - some of it for the first time. In other cases, it cleared up topics I thought I understood, and displaced several misconceptions.
Companies should buy boxes of this book and give them to all the IT people who don't understand the plant floor, and to all the operations people who are afraid of networking.
Marshall and Rinaldi have written both a basic guide to industrial ethernet, and a very good sourcebook for engineers and technicians.
You can (and you should) buy this book (...) at http://www.amazon.com.
I have been working for more than 16 years as an Instrumentation, Automation, and Process Safety and Control Engineer for the process industries. I own this book, and it has proven to be an excellent reference in my day to day activities.
