Where does DeviceNet fit into the Ethernet world?


We all know that there are hundreds of thousands of DeviceNet nodes around the world. We also know that DeviceNet will not be easily replaced in these applications. The technology works and is easy to understand and maintain. It's also competitively priced compared to Ethernet - especially when you consider the cost of Ethernet switches.



In fact, DeviceNet is well suited for applications with topologies in which nodes are arranged linearly. This is the sweet spot of DeviceNet: the nodes are arranged linearly like a conveyor belt. Unless something changes, you can expect DeviceNet to be deployed in applications like this in the future.



Another advantage of DeviceNet is that it uses CIP exactly like EtherNet/IP, just on the CAN physical layer. DeviceNet uses CAN instead of the TCP/IP stack and Ethernet physical layer.

The role of DeviceNet terminal resistor

DeviceNet_network is a fieldbus network protocol based on Controller Area Network (CAN). In the DeviceNet network, the terminal resistor plays the role of compensation and protection for signal transmission. The function of the terminal resistor is to eliminate signal reflection and interference and ensure the signal transmission quality.
