Innovasic Certifies the RapID Platform with the fido5000 REM Switch for EtherNet/IP and Beacon-based Device Level Rings

Innovasic is pleased to announce the RapID Platform with the new fido5000 REM Switch chip has been certified to EtherNet/IP CT11 for beacon-based DLR devices.  Additional net load testing has been performed by Innovasic to ensure cycle times down to 2ms are immune to the effects of network traffic.  Certifications for EtherCAT, SERCOS III, and POWERLINK will be announced over the next few months.

The RapID Platform – EtherNet/IP Network Interface with DLR is delivered as a module or embedded design containing everything needed to participate in an EtherNet/IP network with a star, line, or ring topology. For rings, the product supports beacon intervals down to 100 µs and ring recovery times of less than 3 ms for a 50-node network. The product also supports QuickConnect, Address Conflict Detection (ACD), configuration assemblies, and large forward open. All Standard Objects are supported and the File Object can be used to embed an EDS file. A web server is included and dynamic web pages can be customized by the user.

“With the addition of EtherNet/IP and beacon-based DLR to the fido5000-based RapID Platform, we are one step closer to realizing the vision of having one platform to support all time-critical Industrial Ethernet protocols,” says Tom Weingartner, Innovasic’s VP of Marketing.

The RapID Platform – EtherNet/IP Network Interface with DLR module and embedded design are available now.
