netSWITCH for Sercos III - Gateway Switch TCP/IP (send/receive) to Sercos Slave
Categories: Infrastructure Components
- Tunneling of any TCP/IP frames into the Sercos ring
- Directly operational without further configuration
- Web interface for additional configuration
- Effortless installation with no effect on Sercos ring via two 2-port switch
The netSWITCH connects an autonomously operating Sercos network (a ring topology as well) with a standard Ethernet network.
The Sercos Real-Time Ethernet system provides deterministic jitter-free data transmission for controlling and synchronizing drives. Parallel to this and based on a time-slot basis, standard Ethernet telegrams can be transmitted via a NRT (non-real-time) channel.
These NRT telegrams must be buffered for retransmission on a standard Ethernet network. The netSWITCH provides this buffer connection between the synchronized Serocs network and standard Ethernet. Besides the two Ethernet ports for Serocs is one Ethernet port for connection to a notebook or other standard Ethernet capable devices.
