The DeviceNet™ Network provides open, device-level control and information networking for simple industrial devices. It supports communication between sensors and actuators and higher-level devices such as programmable controllers and computers. With power and signal in a single cable, it offers simple and cost-effective wiring options.
Answer the questions in the three steps below to determine if DeviceNet™ is the right choice for your application.
DeviceNet is especially suited for these types of applications:
Be sure your automation devices connect to DeviceNet.
Compare the topology, capacity, and performance capabilities of DeviceNet to ensure it is right for your applications.
Each DeviceNet network supports up to 64 nodes; 62 nodes are available for devices
|Distances||Daisy-chain or branch nodes along droplines up to a maximum of 6 m (20 ft) from the trunk|
See the NetLinx Networks Selection Guide [PDF] for more information on selecting a network.
