Based on the vendor’s netX chip, up to 1,000 protocol combinations are possible in a modular compact DIN-rail mounted housing. The netTAP 100 is capable of linking any of the major fieldbuses, real-time Industrial Ethernets and serial protocols used in the market today, says the vendor. Master and Slave protocols for CANopen, DeviceNet, Profibus, CCLink, EtherCat, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, Powerlink, Profinet, SERCOS III, MB/RTU, MB ASCII RS232-, RS422, and RS485 are included for real-time I/O data exchange. The netTAP 100 can be configured to be a master or slave on either end. The configuration software for the master side is an enhanced version of Sycon.net which is an FDT/DTM-based tool. A standard USB port is used for configuration, as well as loading network firmware and diagnostics.
