PROFINET, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, ModbusTCP

The RapID Platform Network Interface with the Real-time Ethernet, Multi-protocol (REM) Switch is a pre-tested module that manages the industrial protocol and network traffic with a unified host processor interface.

REM RapID Platform Network InterfaceWith the addition of the REM switch, the RapID Platform Network Interface supports the time-critical, motion control based Industrial Ethernet protocols including PROFINET IRT, EtherCAT, SERCOS, and POWERLINK.  PROFINET RT, EtherNet/IP, EtherNet/IP with beacon-based DLR, and ModbusTCP are also supported with the RapID Platform - all with the same module.  No matter what protocol you use, there are no licensing fees or royalties.  And better still, with the module's unified interface, your host processor hardware or software does not change!

The Network Interface contains everything needed including the communications controller, protocol stacks, Flash, RAM, and analog driver so you do not need to be concerned with the details of the Industrial Ethernet protocol.  All protocol capabilities are encapsulated on this small form factor interface, and can be integrated into any type of automation equipment from complex control to a simple sensor or actuator.  For small form factor applications the module’s design can be integrated directly into the field device.  All schematics, bill of materials, firmware and design files are provided at no extra cost.  The Network Interface connects to a host processor via a UART or 16-bit Parallel Interface.  Each protocol version of the RapID Platform is certified by the respective protocol test laboratory.  These certifications ensures problem-free operation of your field device with virtually any controller.

All Network Interfaces come with PriorityChannel™ - a revolutionary technology that eliminates the effects of network traffic. PriorityChannel gives your device a significant competitive advantage, extremely low jitter, and a reliable connection that will not disconnect even with >95% network loading.
