Advanced Communications Functions
Compatibility with information-based networks
Data can be exchanged with a host computer through an Ethernet Unit via the TCP/IP, UDP/IP and FTP information-based network protocols.
Communications between CVM1 and CV, CVM1 and C, as well as between CVM1 Units
Controller Link, SYSMAC LINK or other Link Units can be used to build networks that link Programmable Controllers for C, CV, and CVM1 Units.
Building multi-vendor networks using CompoBus/D
CompoBus/D can be used to build a component bus capable of controlling a maximum of 63 Remote I/O Units, or a combines maximum of 2,048 I/O points. Since CompoBus/D conforms to DeviceNet standards, any DeviceNet slave units made it the world can be used on the network.
