The RapID Platform Network Interface solutions are pre-tested Industrial Network interfaces that manage the industrial protocol and network traffic. Thanks to the module’s Unified Interface, a single host interface hardware and software design supports PROFINET, PROFINET IRT, PROFIBUS, EtherNet/IP, EtherNet/IP with DLR, EtherCAT, and ModbusTCP. Choose the type of Network Interface to support the required Industrial protocols. The Unified Interface also ensures your host processor hardware or software interface does not need to change even when you switch or update protocols. The Network Interface connects to a host processor via a UART, 16-bit Parallel Interface, or Ethernet (future).
The evaluation kit provides a quick assessment for interfacing a host processor to the Network Interface module (module is sold separately). Once host-side communication is established, communication can be evaluated using third-party PC-based tools or vendor-specific Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC). The communication path between the host processor and a PLC can be completely verified before integrating the Network Interface into your end field device. Please take a moment to verify the contents of your evaluation kit.
