Flexible and cost-effective solution for the integration of POWERLINK
The Industrial Ethernet Module for POWERLINK provides the customer
with a complete controlled node in accordance with the POWERLINK standard. The area of application is wherever intelligent devices such as drives, frequency converters, IO-modules, valves and other components of automation technology are to be equipped with Powerlink and for which flexibility and extendibility in conjunction with transparent costs are important.
The compatibility to the POWERLINK standard was certified by the EPSG.
Description of functions
The basic functions of the Industrial Ethernet Module are described on the page “Industrial Ethernet Module“.
The Industrial Ethernet Module for POWERLINK provides customers with a complete controlled node for integration into their own device. The following functions are supported in accordance with the POWERLINK specification V2:
* Controlled node with two active Ethernet interfaces and integrated hub
- Isochronous real-time data exchange with cycle times ? 500 µs and fast response times ? 3 µs
- Asynchronous data exchange
- Dynamically extendable object directory via the host interface and dynamic PDO mapping
- Display of STATUS and ERROR
The exchange of IO data of the host application with the Industrial Ethernet Module for POWERLINK is performed separately for input and output data via a configurable memory image in the DPRAM of the module.
The technical details and functions of the Industrial Ethernet Module for POWERLINK (controlled node) may change.
