Industrial Ethernet Evaluation Board Supports Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, Profinet, Profibus, Modbus, And More
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.
- 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.
