The ControlNet protocol is a globally accepted industrial networking standard (IEC 61158) that was specifically designed to meet the real-time, high-throughput requirements of an industrial network. A key characteristic of ControlNet is its deterministic, repeatable transfers of all mission-critical control data while also supporting non time-critical data transfers on the same physical wire. Non time-critical applications such as program downloads can occur over ControlNet without affecting the real-time performance of the network.

Fiber Optic Repeaters

The modular EOTec 2C20 Electrical Interface Module is designed for use with various Optical Interface Modules and Power Supply Modules within the EOTec 2000 product family. Various combinations of modules can be used to create many different network topologies using coax cable or glass fiber cable. Topologies supported include Point-to-Point, Daisy Chain, Star and Cascading Tree.

Self-Healing Ring Modules

The patent pending EOTec 2C31 Single Self-Healing Ring (SHR) and 2C32 Dual Self-Healing Ring (DSHR) repeaters provide multiple communication paths between the various elements of the control system and incorporate advanced Downstream Multicasting technology. In the event of a failure on one communication path, communications are still maintained along a secondary path or, in the case of a dual ring, tertiary paths. Process downtime due to an accidental break of one of the fiber cables is therefore eliminated.
