The 1784-U2DN USB to DeviceNet Cable is used to connect a computer’s unused USB port to a DeviceNet network. Once connected to the DeviceNet network, maintenance and troubleshooting are easy because you can program, monitor and configure all network operations and devices from the PC. The cable includes a pod that contains the firmware that allows the connection between the PC and DeviceNet network. The firmware can be flash upgraded when new firmware features becomes available.
The cable contains a pod containing three status LEDs, two rotary switches used to set the network address as well as a switch for baud rate selection. The cable includes a 10 pin plug-in connector to wire to the DeviceNet network.
The 1784-U2DN allows Rockwell Software products to access the DeviceNet network. The firmware has also been designed to operate with Frontline’s NetDecoder™ Traffic Analyzer software.
