EtherNet/IP Module and Embedded Design Solution Support Beacon-Based Device Level Ring
This new version of the RapID Platform provides EtherNet/IP connectivity for applications using beacon-based DLR topologies.
The RapID Platform - EtherNet/IP Network Interface with DLR supports beacon rates down to 100 µs, enabling fault recovery and ring restore times of less than 10 ms. Participation in the DLR ring is transparent to any host processor or host application connected to the RapID Platform. As with all protocol versions of the Network Interface, the unit incorporates PriorityChannel technology, which eliminates the effects of network traffic loading and ensures real-time EtherNet/IP messages are always processed on-time, every time. A field device is protected from unpredictable packet delays, excessive latency, and connection failure without worrying about network segmentation or switch configuration.
