FL-net is a control network, primarily used for interconnection of devices such as PLCs, Robot Controllers and numerical Control Devices. It features both cyclic and acyclic data exchange capabilities, and uses a token-based communication scheme for data transmission.
The Anybus-S FL-net module allows easy implementation of 10Mbit FL-net interfaces into industrial devices. The module provides full FL-net Class 1 functionality. It is available with a 2 kByte Parallel Dual Port Ram interface on the application side which is fully interchangeable with all other Anybus-S modules.
The module also support possibility to customise both the identy and the profile information. The FL-net interface can handle both shielded (FTP) and unshielded (UTP) cables.
