    PROFINET Version 3.1

  •         Includes certified version of PROFINET software

    EtherNet/IP Version 3.1

  •         Includes Serial Unified Interface Version 3.1

    Modbus/TCP Version 3.1

  •         Improved the new data handling to provide better support for the host

    All Protocols now include support for the fido1100 Simple File System (SFS) and improvements to the Bootloader
