These devices provide all of thefunctionality associated with the IP67 rated BL67 system, including managingthe local I/O, while also being able to be the master on the DeviceNet networkand making the data available to the Ethernet network. These system allow usersto bridge the gap between a control layer and a data layer while also expandingthe I/O directly on the Ethernet network. The TURCK modules work as gateways between EtherNet/IP and DeviceNet. Acomplete DeviceNet network with up to 63 standard nodes can be connected to theEtherNet/IP network. This provides users that have invested in a DeviceNetinfrastructure but would like to migrate to Ethernet with a new option.I/O-ASSISTANT project planning software on FDT/DTM is available for configuration,parameterization, set-up support, diagnostics, documentation, etc.; the entireDeviceNet configuration is setup with just the touch of a button. This productallows users of new or existing device level networks to bridge the gap withEthernet. The modular I/O solution of BL67 provides the ability to mix andmatch the specific I/O needs at the EIP level, while providing an integratedDeviceNet Master to manage the network below. In addition, the BL67 PG isprogrammable and can perform local control that provides users with a local ornetwork control system.
