WRC-CANX CAN Bus extenders extend CAN Bus networks such as DeviceNet, SDS, and OpenCAN Part B. CAN-based products limit cable length based upon network data rates, as well as limit the length of drops from T-Junctions. WRC’s Bus Extenders allow a user to extend the cable length without having to sacrifice network speed by providing an isolated extender operating at the network speed to effectively multiply the allowed network cable length.
The W5 series of DeviceNet I/O boards provide a very cost effective solution for OEMs needing to distribute their I/O in such applications such as sorting, material handling, conveying and others.
SmartMux-Lite I/O adapters provide an economical, flexible, convenient, and reliable way to add discrete and analog I/O at your machine location with DeviceNet connections back to your controller.
The JDA is a remote industrial I/O device that multiplexes analog data acquisition and control signals in industrial or commercial applications. The 1782-JDA4 is DIN-mounted I/O multiplexers and supports serial communications on a DeviceNet link.
The JDB is a remote industrial I/O device that multiplexes discrete data acquisition and control signals in industrial or commercial applications. The 1782-JDB4 and 1782-JDB8 are DIN-mounted I/O multiplexers and support serial communications on a DeviceNet link.
W5-JEBSP24 modules are 24 point EtherNet/IP communication adapter modules compatible with WRC 1781 and WRC4
single point I/O as well as signal conditioners and single point I/O systems from other brands such as Crydom, Crouzet,
Gordos and Opto 22 making these adapters perfect for system retrofits/upgrades to EtherNet/IP. Each adapter’s 24 I/O
pins are configurable as either an input or an output point. Each module features dual Ethernet ports with built in
network switch for easy daisy-chaining of modules.
Contrary to repeated claims that serial protocols such as Modbus RTU and generic ASCII would cease to be used in industry, they are still alive and well. Today, as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems accelerate, there's an increasing requirement to interface existing legacy equipment using serial interfaces (such as energy meters, data-loggers, bar code scanners, valves, mass flow controllers, etc.) with higher-level Operational Technology (OT ) and Information Technology (IT) business networks. To ease the integration challenges imposed by these legacy serial devices, Western Reserve Controls created the WRC SerTek™ family of Serial Device Gateway providing cost-optimized solutions for RS-232/485 device integration.
