The real-time Ethernet system EtherNet/IP (or EtherNet Industrial Protocol or EIP) is an open standard promoted and maintained by the user organization ODVA. EtherNet/IP is built on the application layer “Common Industrial Protocol” (CIP), extends the standard protocols TCP or UDP and makes it possible to operate standard networks and automation networks in parallel.
By means of the products integrated in CODESYS, industrial controllers (PLCs) with an available Ethernet port can be extended to provide EtherNet/IP scanner and/or adapter functionality without additional hardware.
- Integrated configurator for the scanner and the connected adapters (targets/slaves)
- Import of adapter EDS files
- Integrated scanner (master) protocol stack as a CODESYS library, programmed in IEC 61131-3 code
- Alternatively: a driver for Hilscher EC1 or netX-based Ethernet connection with EtherNet/IP stack as well as a runtime system component for direct access to the Ethernet/IP master card
- User library for Ethernet/IP services (messages for the remote control of connected EtherNet/IP devices)
- Diagnostics functionality for the scanner and for connected adapters (slaves) or their I/Os in the CODESYS Development System as well as in the IEC 61131-3 application at runtime
- Integrated configurator for the adapter and connected EtherNet/IP modules
- Adapter protocol stack as a CODESYS library, programmed in IEC 61131-3 code – turns a PLC into a modular EtherNet/IP device
- Integration of a CODESYS-compatible controller in an EtherNet/IP network with any scanner
- EDS adapter file included in the delivery scope
- Combination with CODESYS EtherNet/IP scanner possible
- Diagnostics functionality for the configured adapter and connected EtherNet/IP modules in the CODESYS Development System as well as in the IEC 61131-3 application at runtime
- You are a system integrator or a user in the plant construction sector or the like:
Use controllers equipped with CODESYS EtherNet/IP support. Check the CODESYS Device Directory for the devices best suited for your specific needs. Once you have the required hardware, there are no additional costs involved. Alternatively, you can use the CODESYS Control SoftPLC Systems from the CODESYS Store. CODESYS EtherNet/IP is integrated in these systems and can be used at no additional costs.
- You are a manufacturer of programmable devices:
Implement the CODESYS EtherNet/IP support on your hardware. All you need for this implementation is the CODESYS Runtime Toolkit with EtherNet/IP support.
