What is DeviceNet?

DeviceNet is one of three open network standards (DeviceNet, ControlNet and EtherNet/IP), all of which use a common application layer, the "Common Industrial Protocol" (CIP). The Family of CIP Networks is specified and published by ODVA (Open DeviceNet Vendor Association - http://www.odva.org) and CI (ControlNet International - http://www.controlnet.org).

The main field of application of DeviceNet is factory automation with I/O-modules, valves, encoders, simple drives and controls (PLC). Within the Family of CIP Networks DeviceNet covers the main part of the applications where small to medium amount of data with short to medium cycle times (1 ms to 500 ms) can be exchanged in the network.
