The Data Station Plus and Modular Controller product series now supports DeviceNet. Both series offer communication and data management features. With the release of the XCDN DeviceNet option card, you can quickly add DeviceNet Slave connectivity to any of the Data Station Plus or Enhanced Modular Controller Master units. The card is added to the expansion slot during installation and configured using Red Lion’s free Crimson™ 2 software.
Both products have a multi-protocol converter with three serial ports and an Ethernet port. The XCDN option card enables any connected devices to communicate with DeviceNet products. In addition, the option card is isolated, protecting equipment from potentially harmful ground loops.
The units contain a proprietary expansion port, allowing them to evolve concurrently with the latest avances in communications without sacrificing performance. All the data can be logged in “IT-ready” format.
