Network Interface with DLR from Innovasic
January 20, 2013
The RapID platform network interface for industrial Ethernet connectivity from Innovasic Inc., Albuquerque, NM, is now available with support for high-performance Device Level Ring (DLR) networks. DLR is the fault recovery protocol endorsed by ODVA for network ring topologies. The RapID platform EtherNet/IP network interface with DLR supports beacon rates down to 100 µs, enabling fault recovery and ring restore times of <10 ms. Participation in the DLR ring is transparent to any host processor or application connected to the RapID platform. PriorityChannel technology eliminates the effects of network traffic loading and ensures that real-time EtherNet/IP messages are processed on time.
