Dear list, I'm new on FF protocol and application. Could someone give me a brief consideration on how to implement it ? 1. what cable should i used ? maximum distance and baudrate ? 2. is it need a special tapping device ? 3. how many node do have in one network ? 4. how to configure it ? is it via a special programming terminal ? or a PC with a card and configuration software ? 5. if i have a full loaded network, is it any special consideration on I/O update rate ? 6. the protocol is still in development, and FF still come out with revision, how do i upgrade the firmware ? In ease of installation and cost, which protocol is the best ? Any comment is accepted, Regards amora fibrianto somit automation
