Networking 4Dpro devices in an assembly line

The CDF600 fieldbus module enables the networking of 4Dpro devices, such as bar code scanners, RFID systems, and hand-held scanners, in PROFIBUS, PROFINET-IO, or EtherCAT® networks. This ensures continuous communication by the individual devices with the higher-level control system of the assembly line. All 4Dpro devices are compatible and interchangeable through the standardized 4Dpro platform. As a result of the proxy operating mode integrated in the CDF600-2, only the 4Dpro device is visible to the control system, not the CDF600-2. This means that direct access to control of the devices is possible (GSD and GSDML configuration).
