What Networks are Driving Your Plant?
NetLinx Open Network Architecture is the Rockwell Automation strategy of using open networking technology for seamless, top-floor to shop-floor integration. The networks in the NetLinx architecture – DeviceNet, ControlNet, and EtherNet/IP – speak a common language and share a universal set of communication services.
NetLinx architecture, part of the Integrated Architecture, seamlessly integrates all the components in an automation system from the simplest device to the Internet – helping you to improve flexibility, reduce installation costs, and increase productivity.
