VARAN client module comes in a compact DIL-32 format
Thus compact field devices such as barcode readers or identification systems can efficiently be integrated into a VARAN network. netIC delivered in a compact DIL-32 module is the easiest and fastest solution to upgrade simple field devices with slave communication functionality, claims the manufacturer. The Modbus-RTU protocol exchanges the I/O data over a serial interface with the host process. Alternatively netIC collects I/O data via external shift registers and exchanges automatically with the upper network.
