Courtesy: InnovasicInnovasic's RapID Platform Network Interface for Industrial Ethernet connectivity supports high performance Device Level Ring (DLR) networks. DLR is the fault recovery protocol endorsed by ODVA for network ring topologies. The RapID Platform EtherNet/IP Network Interface with DLR supports beacon rates down to 100 µs enabling fault recovery and ring restore times of less than 10 ms. Participation in the DLR ring is transparent to any host processor or host application connected to the RapID Platform.

As with all protocol versions of the Network Interface, the EtherNet/IP version with DLR incorporates PriorityChannel technology. PriorityChannel eliminates the effects of network traffic loading and ensures real-time EtherNet/IP messages are always processed on-time. A field device incorporating Innovasic’s Network Interface solution is protected from unpredictable packet delays, excessive latency, and connection failure without worrying about network segmentation or switch configuration.
