The Networks is a container that provides a space for components supporting external communications of the controller, for example, components managing physical inputs and outputs or the ones enabling communication protocols. Components within the Networks container provide for the controller's basic requirements to be able to communicate with external systems; these components allow to exchange fundamental automation data, which are used to create algorithms operating in user applications.
The nano EDGE ENGINE Networks libraries provide sets of components to manage external communications of the device. Libraries are grouped by specific functionalities, for example, managing local inputs and outputs and implementing a BACnet or Modbus protocol. Libraries designed for the Networks container are:
- Core library;
- IO library;
- BACnet library;
- Modbus library.
