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.
