MB300 versus MB300E
Dear Mr. Stromqvist,
I have following questions concerning the MB300:
1. Which is the diference between MB300 and MB300E?
2. Where is the practical application field of each one?
3. Can simply one network using MB300 be replaced by MB300E?
4. Using a RTA-Board-Box, is there any extra hardware setup required additionally to the software configuration?
I thank you for your time an support about this issue.
MB300 and MB300E are very similar, same hardware, etc can be used.
MB300E offer the following benefits:
- Adjustable CYCLETIME (routing vector transmission interval) from 1 (=0.1sec) up to 127 (=12.7sec) which can be necessary when roundtrip delay is slow (e.g. satellite link). MB300 uses fixed value of 10 (=1 second).
- Lower routing vector frequency results in a gain in available bandwidth for application traffic.
- Less routing bursts when a node connect or disconnect.
- Proven down to 64 kbit/second datalink rate.
