A demonstration to build the EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT, CC-Link IEF BASIC network by using Renesas Industrial ICs (RZ/N1L, RZ/T1, R-IN32M3-EC, R-IN32M3-EC, R-IN32M3-CL) which can build customer's industrial network products, including the RZ/N1 series which supports the major industrial protocols stack.
The PLC equipment and four RZ/N1Ds (Master) are connected via the DLR function of EtherNet/IP, and when the network is partially disconnected artificially, this state is recognized by the PLC equipment, and each RZ/N1D (Master) device will be notified. When reconnected, communication is restored.
The four RZ/N1D (Master) build subnetworks using the EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT, CC-Link-IEF Basic respectively are connected to the network.
The subnetworks that use RZ/N1D as the Master, execute CODESYS software PLC in the Linux environment of a Cortex®-A7 which is connected to RZ/N1L, RZ/T1, R-IN32M3-EC, R-IN32M3-CL by various protocol communications.
