Innovasic’s RapID Platform Network Interface available with Beacon-based DLR
Innovasic announces a new version of its RapID Platform Network Interface for Industrial Ethernet connectivity that supports high performance Device Level Ring networks. DLR is the fault recovery protocol endorsed by ODVA for network ring topologies. The RapID Platform - EtherNet/IP Network Interface with DLR supports beacon rates down to 100 µs enabling fault recovery and ring restore times of less than 10 ms.
Participation in the DLR ring is transparent to any host processor or host application connected to the RapID Platform.

As with all protocol versions of the Network Interface, the EtherNet/IP version with DLR incorporates PriorityChannel technology. PriorityChannel eliminates the effects of network traffic loading and ensures real-time EtherNet/IP messages are always processed on-time, every time. A field device incorporating Innovasic’s Network Interface solution is protected from unpredictable packet delays, excessive latency, and connection failure without worrying about network segmentation or switch configuration.

“The RapID Platform - EtherNet/IP Network Interface with DLR allows developers to quickly and cost effectively add beacon-based DLR to their products,” says Jordon Woods, Innovasic’s Chief Technology Officer. “By incorporating the new RapID Platform with DLR, industrial automation products will have the ultimate performance in terms of industrial traffic immunity and fault recovery.”

An ODVA conformance tested RapID Platform module and embedded design will be available in January 2013.
