Industrial Protocol: TSN kit with Web Server: How was it accomplished?

Hello,

TSN has a web server which is configurable. I am confused if this webserver is part of the FIDO5100 chip itself or just part of the TSN kit, in which a host processor is acting as web server and just tunneling the data through the REM switch? I didn't comprehend where the web server is actually located just by reading the document on innovasic.com

Also the document says that it does not support Profinet, only for Ethernet/IP. What are the technical limitation that it wouldn't be possible to do it with Profinet? Just wan't implemented for the kit or is it an actual limitation in the API or the chip itself?

Kind Regards

Adrian

    Hi Adrian,

    So the TSN kits act as gateways from nearly any sort of Ethernet traffic to TSN enabled Ethernet traffic. Basically in the case of EtherNet/IP or PROFINET, the user would access the TSN gateways web page and configure the streams and set schedules as they desire to evaluate 802.1AS and 802.1QBV.

    The actual Ethernet application is not usually relevant. The kits will act as a gateway to nearly all types of Ethernet traffic. The only exception is for something like an Industrial Ethernet protocol where one master controls all traffic on a network.

    Best Regards,
