Network interface passes PROFINET IRT certification

Less than one month on from its introduction, Innovasic has revealed that the latest version of its RapID Platform Network Interface for PROFINET RT and IRT connectivity has been certified for both Class B and Class C. It is possible to design in PROFINET with the RapID Platform and take advantage of seamless support for version v2.3.

Innovasic’s solution allows users to certify their design to v2.3 as soon as certification is available through any of the PI Test Labs.

The PROFINET IRT Network Interface is delivered as a module or embedded design containing everything needed to participate in a PROFINET IRT and RT network. A host processor connects to the Network Interface via a UART or 16-bit Parallel Interface.

At the software layer, the host connects to Innovasic’s Unified Interface API so other protocols can be used without changing host processor software. Since the Unified Interface is exactly the same across all versions of the RapID Platform, customers developing a PROFINET IRT or RT product can easily convert to any other supported Industrial Ethernet protocol.

Keith Prettyjohns, CEO, Innovasic, commented: “This is a momentous occasion for Innovasic and speaks to the power of our new fido5000, Real-time Ethernet Multi-protocol (REM) switch and the openness of the PROFINET standard.”

The RapID Platform - PROFINET IRT Network Interface module and embedded design are available now.
