Previous industrial automation solutions used conventional bus connections such as RS-485 between master and node devices. This solution using the Renesas R-IN32M3 module allows ease of migration from an industrial field bus system to an industrial Ethernet system. It supports three major industry standard protocol stacks: PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT. This enables customers to develop industrial Ethernet systems easily.

System Benefits​:

  • Easy to develop industrial Ethernet-connected devices such as Remote I/O or sensors.
  • Built-in software supports three major industrial Ethernet protocols: PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT.
  • Unnecessary to develop an industrial Ethernet protocol stack.
  • Very few external components are required.



  • Migration from legacy industrial field bus systems to industrial Ethernet
  • Remote I/O connected to industrial Ethernet
  • Sensor connected to industrial Ethernet
