DeviceNet Converters

DeviceNet is an open protocol but is mainly used with Rockwell Automation projects. If you don’t find what you are looking for then please visit the page with solutions for Rockwell.

Introduction

The FieldServer DeviceNet Master X30 Adapter driver can be used to emulate a single Master Scanner station on a DeviceNet network. The DeviceNet adapter is implemented as an ODVA profile 12 communications adapter. Standard DeviceNet baud rates of 125K, 250K and 500kbit/s are supported. DeviceNet Master Scanner can open an I/O connection of up to 512 Bytes in each direction to the DeviceNet Slaves.

The FieldServer DeviceNet Slave X30 Adapter driver can be used to emulate a single slave station on a DeviceNet network. The DeviceNet adapter is implemented as an ODVA profile 12 communications adapter and acts as a group 2 only server on the DeviceNet Network. Standard DeviceNet baud rates of 125K, 250K and 500kbit/s are supported. DeviceNet masters/scanners can open an I/O connection of up to 512 Bytes in each direction to the FieldServer

DeviceNet is a communication protocol used in the automation industry to interconnect control devices for data exchange. It uses Controller Area Network as the backbone technology and defines an application layer to cover a range of device profiles. Typical applications include information exchange, safety devices, and large I/O control networks.

DeviceNet was originally developed by American company Allen-Bradley (now owned by Rockwell Automation). It is layered on top of the CAN (Controller Area Network) protocol, developed by Bosch. In order to promote the use of DeviceNet worldwide, Rockwell Automation has adopted the “open” concept and decided to share the technology to third party vendors. Hence, it is now managed by the Open DeviceNet Vendors Association (ODVA), an independent organization located in North America. ODVA maintains specifications of DeviceNet and oversees advances to DeviceNet. In addition, ODVA ensures compliance to DeviceNet standards by providing conformance testing and vendor conformity.[3]
