2.PTP application - Intelligent Assembly System
Precision Time Protocol (PTP) is an Ethernet or IP-based protocol for synchronizing time clocks on a collection of network devices using a Master/Slave distribution mechanism.
PTP is a network-based time synchronization standard, but instead of millisecond-level synchronization, PTP networks aim to achieve nanosecond or even picosecond-level Synchronization. PTP time stamping is so accurate because it uses hardware time stamping instead of software, and PTP equipment is dedicated to one specialized purpose: keeping devices synchronized. For that reason alone, PTP networks have much sharper time resolutions, and unlike NTP, PTP devices will actually time stamp the amount of time that synchronization messages spend in each device, which accounts for device latency. Hence, it can be easily adopted by applications in telecommunications, power plants, industrial automation, test and measurement, robotic control, etc.

In an intelligent assembly system, robots along the conveyor belt often need to obtain accurate timing together with drive controllers and distributed I/O throughout the production line. IES6300 series switches have excellent performance in PTP. In the actual process, the switch performs a NTP and network time synchronization after startup. After the time synchronization is successful, the IES6300 performs time synchronization for the specified multiple network ports in the PTP master mode. In the time-based control network, the system knows exactly when the input is sampled, and the output device can arrange the output to drive at a predetermined time. To achieve faster, higher precision production goals.
