Monitor and Control Multiple EtherNet/IP Groups
Using the ODVA common industrial protocol to enhance performance
Download White Paper
EtherNet/IP™ networks for I/O, drive and other control components are used in an increasing number of process control installations worldwide. This technology enables devices made by different vendors to communicate via standard Ethernet infrastructures that use the ODVA Common Industrial Protocol (CIP). These process networks can be monitored and controlled using a variety of switch‐based topologies. The network configuration dictates performance, flexibility and connectivity to field devices when the PLC or Process Controller is not running. This white paper will discuss how to monitor and control multiple EtherNet/IP groups.
