The National Instruments FP-1600 FieldPoint 10/100 Ethernet Network Module connects a 10/100 Ethernet network to FieldPoint I/O modules. Because the FP-1600 is an Ethernet device, the maximum number of FP-1600 network modules that can be installed on your Ethernet network is determined by your network topology. Each FP-1600 can support up to nine I/O modules. A FieldPoint system consists of at least one network module, at least one terminal base, and one or more I/O modules.

The FP-1600 network module connects directly to a 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps Ethernet network. The FP-1600 auto detects the speed of the connection and configures itself accordingly.
