Renesas RX72M networking solutions, which reduce the development time when using RX72M for slave equipment for industrial networks, are available for motor drives at robot terminals, small programable logic controllers (PLCs) and remote I/O, etc.
The solution consists of an RX72M-based evaluation board along with sample software for the OS, middleware and industrial network communication protocols supporting about 70% of the major industrial network communication protocols in the market, which strengthens our competitiveness in the development of our customers' products.
Please be sure to try out the performance and functionality of this solution.
- You can try using industrial network communication immediately with the sample program and evaluation board.
- It has been tested for conformance with the three major protocols (EtherCAT, PROFINET RT and EtherNet/IP).
- We work with proven partners preparing major industrial network protocols in addition to EtherCAT.
The following are provided for RX72M industrial network solutions:
- Hardware (RX72M Evaluation Board)
- Renesas Starter Kit+ for RX72M (manufactured by Renesas): Easy to start for full evaluation (Motor + Network) through integrated Development environment.
- Made by TESSERA TECHNOLOGY INC. /without a CE mark (Tesera direct sales, catalog Disti): Easy to start for Network evaluation and EtherCAT conformance test.
