The Enhanced ControlNet Router provides intelligent data routing between either EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP/RTU and a ControlNet network. This allows the user to integrate ControlNet devices into a EtherNet/IP based Rockwell Logix platform (e.g., ControlLogix or CompactLogix) or any Modbus Master or Slave device with minimal effort.
The ControlNet Router also provides intelligent data routing between ControlNet and Ethernet PCCC (CSP). This will allow the user to connect new PanelView Plus devices (with no ControlNet interface) to existing ControlNet networks.
The Enhanced ControlNet Router now also supports owning ControlNet IO by scheduling the ControlNet network in the Slate software environment whilst the ControlNet Router is operating as a ControlNet Keeper. The Enhanced ControlNet Router can also own EtherNet/IO IO whilst being a ControlNet Target.
