The module contains the complete SERCOS III software protocol stack and works as a slave on the network. The functionality of the interface is according the SERCOS FSP IO Profile. The Identity Object can be customized, allowing the end product to appear as a vendor-specific implementation.
In addition, the module supports web functions such as a WebServer for creating Dynamic Webpages which include reading & writing of ADIs and process data, Email sending and FTP for downloading of user webpages. Through the socket interface the module provides the possibility to implement other TCP/UDP protocols using the modules TCP/IP stack.

Forward compatible with M40

The CompactCom 40-series modules support the same APIs as the 30-series Modules. This means, if you are already using or want to combine the Sercos III with 40-series embedded Industrial Ethernet modules, it's possible to support both a mixture of CompactCom 30-series and 40-series modules within your embedded industrial device.
