DeviceNet for Quantum/Unity
Interface up to 63 DeviceNet slaves with one controller using the ProTalk DeviceNet communication module
ProSoft Technologys expertise in protocol connectivity solutions for industrial applications now includes support for DeviceNet with its ProTalk DeviceNet Scanner/Slave Module (PTQ-DNET) for the Schneider Electric Quantum and Unity platforms. The PTQ-DNET module provides a powerful interface between DeviceNet scanners or slave devices (such as sensors and actuators) and the processor over the backplane. DeviceNetknown for its robustness and interoperabilityis conducive for and widely used in Oil and Gas applications because of its ability to link controllers with the many devices used in pipelines and refineries, including pressure switches and gauges, manifolds, analyzers, flow sensors, actuators, and control valves.
The DeviceNet network is based on the producer-consumer network model allowing for real-time control data exchange, configuration capabilities exclusive from control performance, and data collection at regular intervals or based on demand.
