The Rockwell Automation/Allen-Bradley ControlNet to Foundation Fieldbus Linking Device adds Foundation Fieldbus H1 interface to ControlNet-based control system.
ControlNet FOUNDATION Fieldbus Linking Device bridges from the ControlNet network to either two or four H1 ports. Each H1 port can support the recommended maximum 8…10 devices. Each H1 network can support a maximum of 64 publisher and 64 subscriber VCR connections. The linking device enables RSFieldbus host communication to the H1 ports via Fieldbus Foundation's High-speed Ethernet (HSE) encapsulated on the ControlNet network. By supporting H1 and ControlNet protocols, the linking device is capable of bridging Rockwell Automation products on the ControlNet network to Foundation Fieldbus products on H1 networks.
This device allows you to easily connect Foundation Fieldbus devices to your manufacturing automation system while capitalizing on ControlNet's deterministic, repeatable nature.
