The 1788-CN2FFR linking device is a linking device module from Allen-Bradley/Rockwell Automation that is geared for the ControlNet network. The specific purpose of the 1788-CN2FFR linking device module is to connect a ControlNet network to a Foundation Fieldbus network and to operate as a gateway between the 2 networks. The operators can configure the 1788-CN2FFR linking device module with a dedicated AOP (Add-On Profile) and with the Studio 5000 Logix Designer application. This module supports different kinds of media redundancy and up to 16 different field devices. Additionally, it supports all the capabilities of a Foundation Fieldbus host device, which includes the LAS or Link Active Scheduler function. Multiple linking devices can be used in 1 ControlNet network.

In the ControlNet network, the Allen-Bradley/Rockwell Automation 1788-CN2FFR linking device module is installed in the middle of the network setup. It is installed between the ControlLogix controller and the junction boxes and field devices. It is the device that connects the controller to the field devices and allows the controller to control all of the connected field devices in a streamlined and efficient network. The 1788-CN2FFR linking device module uses 4 controller connections when it operates. The ControlNet network supports FDT/DTM technology, also known as Field Device Tool/Device Type Manager technology. The 1788-CN2FFR linking device module does not need any additional power supplies or power conditioning device than what it already has in the ControlNet system. An additional 1788-CN2FFR linking device module can be installed in the ControlNet network to be used as a backup linking device.

The Allen-Bradley 1788-CN2FFR linking device is a 1788 linking device for industrial ControlNet networks. It supports media redundancy.
