netJACK by Hilscher is designed to add or change fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet protocols in automation devices. Courtesy: HilscherHilscher's family of network interface modules, netJACK, are designed to quickly and easily add or change fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet protocols in automation devices. Thirteen different protocols are supported, including fieldbuses, such as DeviceNet and Profibus, and Industrial Ethernet protocols, such as EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP and Profinet, in both master and slave versions. Configuring an automaton product to use a particular protocol is just a matter of inserting the appropriate netJACK module.

The IP 40-rated netJACK module uses a simple connection interface to the host that reduces parts costs by eliminating components such as mounting rails. For vendors and OEMs, netJACK reduces integration and stocking costs.
