NI-DNET provides support for devices in a DeviceNet system.
NI-DNET is driver software that helps you configure and control DeviceNet hardware such as DeviceNet Interface Devices, PXI DeviceNet Interface Modules, and C Series DeviceNet Interface Modules. This software uses object-oriented concepts to represent components in the DeviceNet system. NI-DNET uses Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) as the centralized location for configuration and tools. With NI-DNET, you can monitor the DeviceNet network, verify information about connected devices, manage device parameters, and interpret Control Area Network (CAN) messages according to the DeviceNet protocol. You also can develop and debug LabVIEW, LabWindows™/CVI, Microsoft Visual C/C++, Borland C/C++, Visual Basic, or other programming language based-applications using NI-DNET functions. The mark LabWindows is used under a license from Microsoft Corporation. Windows is a registered trademark of Microsoft Corporation in the United States and other countries.
