The Time Sensitive Network (TSN) specifications guarantee the real-time, highly available delivery of data packets in industrial environments, such as machine control applications in production processes.

With the Kontron PCIE-0400-TSN standard PCI Express network card and the associated network and switch drivers for Linux, industrial computers can be connected through a redundant ring-, line- or star-shaped TSN network. Utilizing this approach, Kontron’s Box PCs, 19-inch servers, and workstation lines can be extended for TSN.

The Kontron TSN network card includes an integrated switch for redundant networks with four gigabit ethernet ports. It meets all specifications of IEEE 802.1, such as timing and time synchronization, traffic scheduling, frame preemption, stream reservation protocol and others (via update where applicable).

Like all Kontron products, the TSN network card is especially suited for rough industrial environments and can be run in industrial temperature ranges from -40 to +85 degrees Celsius.

For OEM customers, Kontron offers a private labeling version of the networking card with software services included. This enables OEM customers to expand their portfolio with TSN-connected products.
