The DNET-100 provides a DeviceNet (5-conductor pluggable terminal block style) connection (the "primary" network), as well as secondary network connections comprised of an RS-485 port and three independent common serial ports for direct connectivity to Toshiba adjustable speed drives (ASDs).

The DNET-100 is a Group 2 Server Only device utilizing the Predefined Master / Slave Connection Set. It supports the Polled and COS/Cyclic I/O connections, with consumed and produced data sizes for each connection independently selectable from 0 to 200 bytes. This product has been self-tested by ICC, Inc. and found to comply with ODVA Conformance Test Software Version A-13.

There are three common serial (aka logic level) ports for connection to Toshiba 7-series, 9-series, 11-series or VF-nC1 ASDs. ASD connections use the same standard RJ45 style 8-conductor UTP patch cables: any standard CAT5 Ethernet cable (found in most electronics stores) 5 meters or less in length can be used. ASD connections are automatically established and continuously monitored: no drive configuration needs to be performed to connect the unit to the drives. Just plug it in - it's that simple.

A configurable network timeout selection can be programmed to allow each DeviceNet parameter object to have its own unique "fail-safe" condition in the event of a primary network interruption event.

The DNET-100 allows the user to connect their DeviceNet network to any of the supported master protocols. This is accomplished through an element called the "point database". The point database is entirely user-configurable, and provides the end-to-end mapping information that allows DeviceNet requests to be routed to the correct locations on the secondary network slaves, while at the same time ensuring that the content of the request will be understood once it gets there. When properly configured, the gateway will become essentially "transparent" on the networks, and the DeviceNet master can engage in a seamless dialogue with one or more secondary network devices.
