Some of the world’s most demanding high-speed control and automation applications run on
standard PCs using BradCommunications™ applicomIO® fieldbus interface cards.
Dedicated DCS and PLC systems have been eliminated in favor of open platforms running
PC-based control systems.
The benefits include:
ƒ Reduced material costs
ƒ Reduced development times
ƒ More flexible and customizable systems
ƒ Reduced field-support costs
applicomIO products are design so industrial applications can be designed independently 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 applicomIO product range.
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.
applicomIO provides 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 of industrial organizations and
comply with the applicable industrial standards. 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 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
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.
applicomIO® configuration software console provides a standardized and user-friendly
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.
The product package includes:
ƒ Fieldbus interface card
ƒ Engineering console for configuration and diagnostics
ƒ Data Servers (OPC DA v3.0 & v2.05, Wonderware DAServer and FastDDE/SuiteLink)
ƒ Development Libraries: Windows (DLL), VenturCom (RTX)
ƒ Static library for non-windows OS (VxWorks, QNX, Linux, etc)

Software tools
applicomIO® software tools enable fast
integration of the fieldbus into your control
application. No matter the fieldbus; the
console remains the same.
