Type: I/O Interface
Description: The netIC is a complete "Single Chip Module" in the compact dimensions of a Dual-In-Line (DIL) 32 pin plug-in module. It is based on the network controller netX and contains all components of a fieldbus or real-time Ethernet interface with an integrated 2-port switch and hub. With the netX technology the whole spectrum of relevant fieldbus and real-time Ethernet systems is covered. By exchanging the firmware, one single netIC can be used for multiple communication systems. User data is transferred with simple read-write commands to the application via the above mentioned serial interfaces. The well-known Modbus RTU protocol is used as a serial protocol. Conventional shifting registers can be controlled via a synchronous serial interface requiring no additional processor for a simple I/O-device.
Connectivity: Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU
Features: Compact DIL-32 communication module for cost-efficient field devices; Modbus RTU protocol via SPI or UART to the host; One hardware for all Real-Time Ethernet systems; Direct I/O data transfer via external shift registers; One design for all networks due to standard interfaces; Firmware update and IP configuration via integrated WebServer
Specifications: See specification sheet.
