Industrial Ethernet Embedded Switches
REM Switch Family Supports All Major Industrial Ethernet Protocols and Connects to Any Processor to Build Any Field Device or Controller Application.
The fido5000 REM switch family includes two 2-port, Industrial Ethernet embedded switches that interface to any processor, including any ARM® CPU and ADI’s fido1100 communication controller. ADI’s PriorityChannel™ technology has been integrated into their hardware architecture and designed into the REM switch software drivers. The protocols supported by these switches are PROFINET Class C (IRT) and Class B (RT), EtherNet/IP® with and without DLR, Modbus® TCP, EtherCAT®, and POWERLINK®. The REM switches come with a software driver for each protocol. The software drivers provide an API for integration with any field device or controller protocol stack. ADI is certifying REM and its software drivers at each protocol’s sponsoring industry organization using ADI’s RapID platform.
