How fast is DeviceNet cable?

DeviceNet, registered by ODVA, is primarily used in factory automation as a communication between controllers (such as PLCs) and industrial I/O devices (such as limit switches, sensors, drives, displays and operator interfaces) as well as electrical drives and humans network. Machine Interface (HMI). It is based on the classic CAN data link layer. As such, it is a producer-consumer networking approach that supports multiple communication hierarchies and message priorities. DeviceNet supports commander/responder as well as point-to-point communications. DeviceNet is internationally standardized in IEC 62026-3.



Devices are distributed along the DeviceNet network in a trunk/spur topology. Up to 64 nodes can be connected to a single network segment. This means that an ISO 11898-2 compliant CAN high-speed transceiver needs to drive up to 64 modules. For thick trunks, DeviceNet supports arbitration bit rates of 125 kbit/s at 500 m, 250 kbit/s at 250 m, and 500 kbit/s at 100 m. DeviceNet specifies cables (thick trunk, thin trunk, and flat trunk cable) and connectors (e.g., mini, micro). Some cables can power devices along the same cables as communications cables.



The DeviceNet data link layer complies with the ISO 11898-1 standard. However, only the classic CAN protocol is allowed and CAN remote frames must not be used.



DeviceNet Drop, sometimes referred to as "Thin Cable" pairs MIN or MDC connectors with DeviceNet cabling to allow for easy plug and play connectivity in DeviceNet applications.



Premier Cable offers many combinations of molded cables, field wired connectors, and panel mount receptacles, and DeviceNet accessories to meet your specific requirements.

What is a terminal block used for?

While there are many factors to consider when designing an overall system, terminal blocks are an optimal solution for complex electrical system connections. With a variety of color options and configurations, Premier Cable’ terminal blocks offer a range of options to meet your design challenges.

CANBus Applications

CAN-bus has been widely used in various automation control systems. For example, CAN-bus has incomparable advantages in various fields such as automotive electronics, automatic control, smart buildings, power systems, and security monitoring.

Introduction to M12 connector pin coding

M12 encoding types are A encoding, B encoding, D encoding and X encoding. A-code, B-code and X-code are some of the earliest developed and longest-available M12 connectors. The latest M12 coding types currently under development are K coding for AC and L coding for PROFINET DC.

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.
