The FT 6000 family of Smart Transceivers is the next-generation system-on-chips for modernizing and consolidating smart control networks.It is a key product in Echelon’s IzoT platform - the most comprehensive and open control networking platform for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).It offers options for backward compatibility with LONWORKS while adding native IP addressing at the device level and consolidating multiple control protocols on the same device carried over the reliable and proven Free Topology channel.It is designed to bring unprecedented flexibility and openness while lowering development and device costs.The FT 6000 Smart Transceiver family integrates a high-performance Neuron core with a free topology twisted-pair transceiver. Combined with the proven FT-X3 Communications Transformer and inexpensive flash memory, the FT 6000 Smart Transceivers provide a very flexible, low-cost, feature enhanced LONWORKS or IzoT/IP or BACnet/IP solution all within the same device.The FT6000 series Smart Transceiver includes three independent 8-bit logical processors to manage the physical MAC layer, the network, and the user application.
