New editions of CIP network specifications
ODVA has published new editions of the specifications for the family of CIP Networks, enhancing the EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, CompoNet and ControlNet technologies. All together, the new editions include 14 enhancements.
Among these enhancements, ODVA has recognised that factory automation commonly uses many different control voltages for machine control, and end users have been requesting that components be standardised, including permissible noise limits. ODVA is defining best in class practices for auxiliary power circuits by defining a set of consistent rules for components, devices and wiring practices.
Also, with fibre increasingly pervasive in automation systems, ODVA has added an option for a SC-RJ connector, as well as Variant 1 housing suitable for harsh, industrial environments.
