DeviceNet is unique because…
- It began life as CAN technology designed for cars.
Cars required simple networks, and that simplicity is apparent in DeviceNet.
- Is a low-cost, simple alternative to much more complex networks.
Most networks start with complexity and expand to meet Industrial Networking requirements. DeviceNet started simple and worked upward.
- Uses unique communication processes.
DeviceNet includes self-diagnosis and message priority, among other things.
