Ethernet/IP communication with an SMLC

Ethernet/IP communication with an SMLC

This tutorial covers the Ethernet/IP capabilities of ORMEC's SMLC motion controller.

The SMLC can function as an Ethernet/IP adapter. This allows a user to establish connected messaging between an Ethernet/IP scanner such as a Logix PLC and an SMLC. The SMLC also has the capability to send and receive unconnected messages.

Three topics are covered in detail in this tutorial.

1) Establishing connected messaging between a Logix PLC and an SMLC

2) Sending unconnected messages from a Logix program to an SMLC

3) Using unconnected messages to read and write tag names in a Logix PLC from the SMLC.
