Network interface for Profinet and IRT connectivity
Innovasic's RapID Platform Network Interface for Profinet IRT and RT connectivity supports Profinet v2.3 and is delivered as a module or embedded design.
Innovasic's RapID Platform Network Interface for Profinet IRT and RT connectivity supports Profinet v2.3 and provides cycle times down to 250 µs. Cycle times down to 31.25 µs are supported on the same hardware platform as soon as the high performance profile is released by Profibus Profinet International. This version of the RapID Platform also includes Innovasic's PriorityChannel Technology, which is designed to eliminate detrimental effects of network traffic and loading.
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.
A Web Server is also included with the RapID platform that allows users to change field device parameters through the use of a standard Web Browser.
