Renesas RX72M networking solutions

Renesas announced their RX72M networking solutions, which reduce the development efforts while using the RX72M for slave equipment for industrial networks; they are available for motor drives at robot terminals, small programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and remote I/O, and more.

The RX72M solution comprises of an evaluation board with operating system, middleware, and sample software supporting around 70 percent of the communications protocols used in industrial network applications. The system allows development engineers to quickly start the creation of slave equipment, such as motor control blocks for compact industrial robots, programmable logic controller (PLC) devices, and remote I/O systems. 

The software samples include Industrial Ethernet solutions such as EtherCAT, PROFINET RT, Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP, PROFIBUS DP, Modbus, RTU/ASCII, CANopen, and DeviceNet.

Key Features

  • You can try using industrial network communication immediately with the sample program and evaluation board.
  • It has been tested for conformance with the three major protocols (EtherCAT, PROFINET RT and EtherNet/IP).
  • Renesys works with proven partners preparing major industrial network protocols in addition to EtherCAT.

CANopen Architect Software For Creating And Editing Electronic Data Sheets (EDS)

CANopen is a higher layer protocol operating on a CAN Bus network. The CAN Bus specification defines solely the physical and data link layers in the ISO/OSI 7-layer Reference Model. Consequently, only the physical bus and the CAN Bus message format is defined, but not how the CAN Bus message applies. CANopen provides an open and [...]

Easy Integration Of CANopen Or SAE J1939 Protocol Stack Into Any Embedded System With Serial Input

The simple assumption behind the statement of easy integration of a CANopen or SAE J1939 protocol stack is that virtually every embedded system (and even other industrial controls such as PLCs) do have a serial port of some sort, mostly UART, RS232, or USB. "Easy" also implies that you don't have to go through major [...]
