The Rockwell Automation/Allen-Bradley Ethernet to Foundation Fieldbus Linking Device adds Foundation Fieldbus H1 interface to Ethernet-based control system.
The FOUNDATION Fieldbus Linking Device serves as a link between Fieldbus Foundation’s High-speed Ethernet (HSE) and H1 segments. Each H1 port can support 16 fieldbus devices (with 8 to 10 recommended). The linking device also bridges the EtherNet/IP and H1 segments to provide connectivity for FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices to Logix controllers, such as ControlLogix and CompactLogix. Each H1 network can support a maximum of 64 publisher and 64 subscriber Virtual Communication Relationships (VCR) connections. VCRs assist in the communication between the Fieldbus, the Linking Device and the H1 ports.
