Allows setting I/O and controls for Ethernet-IP or Profinet fieldbus.
- New for this platform, the map is fully customizable
Right now, we cannot achieve the exact same mapping as is on the legacy ICD/M - a PLC change must be made in order to be compatible.
- 256 Bytes maximum Input
- 256 Bytes minimum Output
Once initially programmed, there is quite a bit of work that the system must do and may take some time to build the structure. Please be patient and do not refresh the browser, or attempt to change something else. This is normal. It only occurs the initial time that it is set up.
EtherNet/IP is an industrial network protocol that adapts the Common Industrial Protocol to standard Ethernet. EtherNet/IP is one of the leading industrial protocols in the United States and is widely used in a range of industries including factory, hybrid and process. The EtherNet/IP and CIP technologies are managed by ODVA, Inc., a global trade and standards development organization founded in 1995 with over 300 corporate members.
EtherNet/IP uses both of the most widely deployed collections of Ethernet standards –the Internet Protocol suite and IEEE 802 project – to define the features and functions for its transport, network, data link and physical layers. EtherNet/IP performs at level session and above (level 5, 6 and 7) of the OSI model. CIP uses its object-oriented design to provide EtherNet/IP with the services and device profiles needed for real-time control applications and to promote consistent implementation of automation functions across a diverse ecosystem of products. In addition, EtherNet/IP adapts key elements of Ethernet’s standard capabilities and services to the CIP object model framework, such as the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), which EtherNet/IP uses to transport I/O messages.
