DeviceNet Fieldbus system

What is DeviceNet?

DeviceNet is an open fieldbus standard that was developed by Rockwell Automation and is used in industrial automation. It is based on the CAN bus (Controller Area Network). DeviceNet enables communication between devices from different manufacturers without special interface adaptations. The fieldbus standard is typically used for safety installations, in information exchange and in large input/output control units. DeviceNet is particularly widespread in the USA and Asia.
