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.
“Adding beacon-based DLR to our Ethernet/IP communication solution and passing conformance testing demonstrates Innovasic’s continuing commitment to providing cost effective Industrial Ethernet solutions,” says Keith Prettyjohns, Innovasic’s Chief Executive Officer.
