Like for fieldbus systems, Ethernet based communication systems provides different solutions and have their specific technically approaches.
Device manufacturers need to make themselves familiar with the new technology, evaluate pros and cons of each system and decide what can be used best for their application or product.
In some instances, the market makes the decision and the device manufacturer is forced to create test scenarios with multiple network nodes in a real-world system.
The slave devices used in this network should be easy to use, inexpensive and flexible like the NXIO board. The NXIO is a digital I/O board for all Ethernet based fieldbus system and utilizes networX on chip. A digital I/O board for all Ethernet systems configurable by loading a new Firmware from the provided MMC Card.
|Product name||Part number||Brief description|
|NXIO 50-RE||2521.100||Evaluation Board Real-Time Ethernet|
The simplest and most economic way of evaluating the whole system is using the netX software development board. Your developed application can be loaded onto the board and run with our protocol stacks and, for instance, combined with the license-free rcX real-time kernel.
