If standard LAN is your systems preferred connectivity option, netHOST RTE now expands your access level to industrial Real-Time Ethernet networks.
The gateway device is a full-featured and autonomously operating Real-Time Ethernet master enabling industrial PCs and other embedded systems to control PROFINET, EtherCAT or EtherNet/IP networks via standard Ethernet LAN. The highly optimized TCP/IP based and open access LAN protocol grants you maximum performance and makes latencies of less than a millisecond possible. A Windows DLL as application programming interface (API) and the ?C? source code toolkit for embedded systems giving you rapid access from any LAN-enabled platform. The API is function compatible with the API of Hilscher's PC cards, just the DLL has to be exchanged.
Once integrated both device classes can be supported all at once. For details continue reading at www.hilscher.com in the LAN Gateways section.
