What is DeviceNet?
DeviceNet is a type of multiconductor cable that is known for using the Common Industrial Protocol over a Controller Area Network (CAN) media layer. What does this mean? It means that DeviceNet is a network system that interconnects control devices for data exchange. It is utilized in the automation industry. Why use DeviceNet? Using CAN protocol creates a network of electronic devices. In essence, the network allows instruments to work together since they share data. Often times, these cables are used in larger networks. They are also used in networks that have components which draw power directly from the bus.
