Revision 6.004 Enhancement Quick Connect - this feature enables the scanner module to connect to slave devices in less than one second (previously up to 10 seconds). Slave devices must also have Quick Connect functionality. With this revision, this feature is usable through explicit messaging configuration. Publication 1771-RN953E-EN-P - February 2005 1771-SDN Series C DeviceNet Scanner Module Revision 6.003 Enhancements 3 This revision of firmware included the following updates to the DeviceNet Master Library: Electronic Keying - added to include Major and Minor revision checking. Shared Inputs - this enables multiple scanner modules to acquire inputs from a specific input device without using separate connections. Auto Device Replacement (ADR) - consists of Node Recovery and Configuration Recovery: • Node Recovery - this feature causes the node number of the replacement device to be automatically changed to the node number of the original device. The replacement device’s node number must be writable over the DeviceNet network and must initially be set to 63. • Configuration Recovery - this feature causes the replacement device’s configuration to be made identical to the original device. The replacement device’s configuration must be writable over the DeviceNet network. Configuration Recovery files are stored in the master scanner that is communicating with the original device through RSNetWorx for DeviceNet.
