The netSHIELD represents an evaluation and expansion board with Arduino Uno pinout compatible connectors for development purposes.

The extension board is designed and tested for 3.3 VDC based hardware designs like the STM32 Nucleo Microcontroller evaluation boards; it has not been tested with the regular line of Arduino CPU boards.

It allows users to connect their application to all market-relevant Real-Time-Ethernet industrial networks with best-in-class real-time capabilities, like PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, and others.

The extension board features a netX 52 system on a chip. The netX SoC architecture is designed from the ground up for the most demanding requirements regarding flexibility, determinism, and performance in terms of multi-protocol capability and low latency for short cycle times. The heterogeneous multicore architecture features an ARM processor core, coupled with a flexible communication subsystem (xC) for a variety of industrial applications.

The communication subsystem, i.e., the protocol stack, operates independently on the netX SoC and needs only small memory and minimal CPU resources from the host system. A protocol-specific firmware image for the netX network controller is stored in serial flash memory.


Important!

Note that loadable firmware for the netSHIELD is only for evaluation purposes and therefore is limited in its functionality: The firmware switches the bus to an offline mode after one hour of operation (module-up time). After this time, no communication to the stacks (and also AP Task) will be possible, and all commands will be rejected. Be aware that in this state, a norm-conforming behavior of the netSHIELD on the bus is not guaranteed! After the one hour evaluation time has expired, the state can only be resolved by a system initialization (SystemReset) or power cycle.

If you want to acquire fully functional firmware without this limitation, please contact the Hilscher Sales department.

EtherNet/IP: The Everyman’s Guide to The Most Widely Used Manufacturing ProtocolEtherNet/IP: The Everyman’s Guide to The Most Widely Used Manufacturing Protocol

EtherNet/IP came roaring into the 21st century on the backs of DeviceNet and ControlNet, claiming world domination (almost) as the most widely used protocol in manufacturing. While it’s pervasive, EtherNet/IP isn’t necessarily standard knowledge to everyone on the factory floor. Admit it; maybe you find yourself losing sleep over questions like...

  • Is EtherNet/IP an IoT transport protocol? Are EDS files important for an EtherNet/IP adapter device?
  • Which is better: EtherNet/IP or PROFINET IO?
  • Isn’t EtherNet/IP just CIP over an Ethernet connection?
  • How many ways are there to organize device data into a CIP Object Model?
  • What is the Assembly Object Class?
  • Can the EtherNet/IP encapsulation to encapsulate other automation protocols?
  • Does it matter which TCP/IP stack we use to build an EtherNet/IP device?
  • Is DeviceNet obsolete or complementary to EtherNet/IP?
  • How important is the compliance test process?
  • Is CoCO good for an EtherNet/IP scanner device, or delicious with marshmallows?

Toss and turn no more! With this handy guide on your bedside table, you’ll be able to navigate the world of EtherNet/IP and, who knows, maybe entertain a companion with exciting tidbits. Dip into any chapter in any order, and you’ll find plenty of clear explanations, with tables and diagrams, to guide you through EtherNet/IP. Or, gift the book at Secret Santa time, and some co-workers can get smarter than you about this well-loved protocol. This book is the latest in John S Rinaldi’s series of love letters to various types of industrial technologies. He’s the renowned speaker, author, ‘that newsletter guy’ and founder of a very cool company that moves data around the factory floor. And now he brings you The Everyman’s Guide to EtherNet/IP.
