Large machinery and heavy equipment which require electronic control are ideal applications for vehicle networks. OEM equipment manufacturers realize significant savings in wiring, installation labor, and post-installation troubleshooting costs. The end user benefits from the advanced diagnostic capabilities provided by electronic control.

A vehicle control network minimizes wiring and wiring maintenance. This reduces complexity and increases reliability. Most OEMs select a vehicle network for the wiring cost reductions, but the savings are not just the cost of the wire and initial installation. Vehicle networks also substantially reduce the cost of the after-sales service and troubleshooting.

DeviceNet networking technology is an adapted solution from the automotive industry. Bosch developed CAN to replace the large and expensive wiring harnesses in automobiles. Network errors are simply not acceptable, and CAN lives up to these requirements. DeviceNet is a messaging protocol built on top of the CAN physical configuration and network access standards.
