WHAT IS DEVICENET?

DeviceNet is an application-level protocol used in the automation environment.

It is a communication tool that allows you to logically talk between a PLC(Programmable Logic Controller) and many control devices, such as motors, conveyors, flowmeters, level sensors, etc.

Instead of the PLC talking directly to discrete I/O modules, DeviceNet talks via a piece of hardware called DeviceNet Scanner.
