Innovasic announces its next generation of Industrial Ethernet switch identified as the fido5000, Real-time Ethernet, Multi-protocol (REM) Switch. fido5000 supports all major Industrial Ethernet protocols PROFINET, PROFINET IRT (version 2.3), EtherNet/IP, EtherNet/IP with Beacon-based DLR, ModbusTCP, EtherCAT, SERCOS, and POWERLINK in a single silicon solution and can be paired with any processor including any ARM® CPU or Innovasic's fido1100® communication controller.
The REM Switch incorporates Innovasic's unique PriorityChannel® Technology that ensures real-time Industrial Ethernet messages are processed on-time, every time regardless of the protocol and the amount of network traffic on the wire. This feature reduces factory down-time due to devices failing under network traffic load conditions. The fido5000 REM Switch comes with a driver for each protocol to easily configure the switch and integrate the protocol stack.
