Programmable-realtime unit industrial communications subsystem features:

One device enables multiple communications protocols:

  • EtherCAT, Profibus, Profinet, Sercos, EtherNet/IP, POWERLINK, and more Supports Master and Slave.
  • Simply change firmware to move from one protocol to the next.
  • TI industrial communications solutions are fully tested, certified, and supported.
  • Software available with PRU-ICSS Industrial Software Kit.

In addition to Industrial Ethernet, Fieldbus, interface, and redundancy protocols are available for the PRU-ICSS, including certified solutions for EtherCAT, Profinet, EtherNet/IP, Profibus, PowerLink, Sercos III, etc.
