ROCKWELL Automation has added a ControlNet network interface adapter to its Allen-Bradley POINT I/O product family.

The POINT I/O redundant ControlNet adapter (1734-ACNR) allows POINT I/O to communicate over the ControlNet network for applications requiring high-speed, deterministic and repeatable data delivery, as well as diagnostic reporting.

The adapter brings powerful capabilities to users with distributed I/O that need to be integrated into a control system.

And with advanced functionality, such as the ability to support software-configurable I/O modules, the ControlNet network adapter reduces spare parts inventory and makes module replacement easier.

With this new network adapter, POINT I/O users can tap into the benefits of an open, digital network, with the ability to directly monitor I/O status and diagnostics with an electronic operator interface.

The ControlNet adapter offers flash-upgradeable firmware for quick and easy field updates and also supports removal and insertion under power (RIUP) of POINT I/O modules, which can reduce costly downtime.
