If you're looking for a simple way to add Real-Time Ethernet to your next automation product, but you don't want to deal with different designs or protocol stacks, a comX module based on our netX chip is the solution you need. Flexibility is the key! A single header allows the addition of different modules providing almost universal connectivity. The modules have their own processor, fieldbus transceivers and connectors, plus two Ethernet jacks and integrated switch or hub functions. A simple common driver interface via dual port memory allows the exchange of I/O data and messages.
Networks include masters and slaves, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, Powerlink, Modbus-TCP, EtherCAT and SERCOS III (slave only), with the following benefits:
