Brad® applicomIO EtherNet/IP Network Interface Card

Brad® applicomIO EtherNet/IP Network Interface Card
Brad® applicomIO Ethernet/IP network interface cards provide powerful and
reliable data acquisition for PC-based control and visualization applications.
Some of the world’s most demanding high-speed control and automation applications
run on standard PCs using Brad applicomIO fieldbus interface cards. Dedicated DCS and
PLC systems have been eliminated in favor of open platforms running PC-based control
Brad® applicomIO
Network Interface Card
Brad applicomIO products have been designed for industrial applications independently
112000 PCI and PCI Express
of the fieldbus used. OEMs, system integrators and end-users can take advantage of
developing standard control applications as well as selecting the fieldbus connectivity
required from the Brad applicomIO product range.
PCI 3.3/5V
Brad applicomIO products consist of a fieldbus card and engineering tools which quickly
and easily setup communication. Everything is included for a successful implementation
at a lower cost.
Brad applicomIO network interface cards provide connectivity support for all popular
fieldbuses including EtherNet/IP, PROFINET IO, Modbus TCP, PROFIBUS, DeviceNet
and CANopen. Our cards are developed in compliance with the technical specifications
PCI Express
of industrial organizations and comply with the applicable industrial standards. Brad
applicomIO supports up to 8 cards in a single PC and can run on various operating
systems including Windows 32-bits, Linux as well as real-time OS such as VxWorks, QNX,
and VenturCom RTX.
Particularly, the Brad applicomIO network interface card provides high-speed
deterministic communication to exchange data with industrial devices through EtherNet/
IP messaging. The built-in processor handles all the protocol management to offer
reliable and outstanding performance.
The software package includes a common development library for all fieldbuses
supported. The process data is exchanged with the control application through a shared
memory where inputs/outputs are automatically mapped. To monitor the communication
between the card and the control application, the library includes a watchdog feature to
automatically detect software blocking.
A real Turnkey Solution
Brad applicomIO configuration software console provides a standardized and userfriendly environment for quick development of communication applications without the
worry of knowing industrial communication protocols. The console saves time during
the commissioning phase by offering features such as automatic device detection, user
configuration management, diagnostic information, etc.
