The Ovation system now features a standardized communication platform. This new platform leverages the power of the Ovation controller to enhance performance with Foundation fieldbus, DeviceNet and Profibus DP industry standard communications protocols. This standardized platform, which uses industry-leading communication technologies, yields a more robust, tightly coupled solution that offers a number of benefits, says the vendor, including better fault tolerance, improved throughput and easier troubleshooting. The new bus platform is also designed to seamlessly incorporate emerging protocols—such as Profinet and EtherNet/IP—as they become more widely adopted, as well as new protocols developed in the future.
