DeviceNet - do your systems use this for I/O signals?
Working with DeviceNet systems will require the use of a completely separate software package - RSNetWorx for DeviceNet.
Many technicians consider DeviceNet to be the most difficult I/O system to work with - mainly due to the way in which input and output signals may be "mapped" into the controller's tags with little or no regard to a "physical" hardware address.
Please let us know if you'll need training on this type of I/O network. Our Boot Camp classes have hands-on exercises available - and we'll be able to cover your particular systems in much greater detail if you can provide the DeviceNet file (.dnt) for your plant's specific system.
