The A8NETH-2P multiprotocol communication interface provides Ethernet-based network connectivity to the Mitsubishi 800-series adjustable speed drives (ASDs). Compatible inverter models include the FR-A800 and FR-F800.

The A8NETH-2P provides dual RJ-45 ports with an embedded IEEE 802.3 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX Ethernet switch and supports star, daisy-chain, and redundant ring topologies. The shielded RJ-45 connectors accept standard CAT5-type 8-conductor unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) patch cables. MDI/MDI-X auto-crossover allows the use of any combination of straight-through and cross-over Ethernet cables. The interface card supports multiple protocols simultaneously.

Support for redundancy protocols, such as MRP (Media Redundancy Protocol) and DLR (Device Level Ring), allow for fast recovery and high availability.

A configurable network timeout action can also be programmed that allows parameters to have their own unique "fail-safe" conditions in the event of a network interruption. The default embedded web server provides remote monitoring as well as a dashboard composed of a variety of gauges, meters and graphs that can be configured to provide an at-a-glance graphical overview of critical application variables in real-time. End users can create their own custom web server content.
