Increased performance, real multi-client usage, analyzing capabilities – these are the mayor advantages coming with the Easylon Interfaces+ (VNI interfaces).
Based on the ANSI/CEA-709.1 standard Easylon Interfaces+ realize network access using a modern CPU on the physical interface and running most of the implementation as virtual nodes on the host computer. This segmentation gives numerous advantages:
Especially the multi-client capability is interesting if your network attached computer serves more than just one purpose. Further to e.g. data acquisition from the network you can run additional control applications or perform management tasks in the LonWorks network. You advantage with Easylon is, that this is not limited to just two: up to eight applications you can run in parallel. Furthermore Easylon Interfaces+ offer remote access capabilities – even for MIP based programs.
Easylon Interfaces+ are based on the ANSI/CEA-709 standard describing the protocol underlying the LonWorks technology.
