The TwinCAT PLC library TcGENIbus.lib contains communication function blocks for the GENIbus master/slave communication from the TwinCAT PLC. GENIbus (Grundfos Electronics Network Intercommunications bus) is a protocol that was developed by Grundfos especially for data exchange with their devices. Several Grundfos devices can be connected to form a network and integrated into an automation system via GENIbus. The TwinCAT PLC GENIbus library contains function blocks for the communication with GENIbus slave devices. GENIbus is based on the RS485 hardware interface. Data exchange takes place at 9,600 baud. In most cases, a GENIbus network consists of a master and up to 200 slaves.
