DeviceNet is a simple, open networking solution that reduces the cost and time required to wire and install industrial automation devices, while providing interchangeability of like components from multiple vendors.

Based on the Controller Area Network (CAN) technology, DeviceNet is a cost-effective solution for low-level industrial device networking and an effective way to provide access to the intelligence present in those devices. A DeviceNet network lets you connect devices directly to plant-floor controllers without hard-wiring each device into an I/O module.


Use a DeviceNet network to:
