The Experion-to-DeviceNet interface uses generic Experion C200/C200E and C300 Controller function blocks contained within a DeviceNet interface library (DNETIF). This library is used within the Experion Control Builder to build control strategies. These generic blocks provide a simple interface to Open DeviceNet Vendor Association (ODVA) certified devices that support numeric and discrete data.
The DeviceNet module is a single wide module that can be placed in the C200/C200E Series-A chassis and /or a remote I/O chassis that is connected through the I/O ControlNet. In the C300 topology, the DeviceNet module is placed in a Series-A chassis and connects to the C300 through the FTE Bridge module and the Control Firewall.
