AN-X-GENI, EtherNet/IP to GE Genius Gateway

EtherNet/IP to GE Genius Gateway

AN-X-GENI

The EtherNet/IP to GE Genius gateway allows an Allen-Bradley Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) to control GE Genius I/O devices. This gateway allows a phased migration approach to be used when upgrading or replacing GE Genius based 90 -30s and 90 -70s controllers. The gateway provides automatic creation of the Genius scan-list and generates the associated RSLogix 5000 tags reducing engineering effort. Monitor mode allows verification of your conversion logic using live I/O data without impacting the running legacy system. Once the new PAC is commissioned the legacy I/O can be upgraded one module or one rack at a time as scheduled downtime is available. This gateway minimizes the risk of excessive downtime when upgrading legacy control systems

Features and Benefits

General Features:

  • Configures through a web browser (No special configuration software required)
  • Customizable configuration files provide additional flexibility
  • Supports offline configuration through a .CSV file
  • Monitor mode enables testing and verification of PAC logic before controlling physical I/O, reducing the risk of production loss due to programming errors
  • View diagnostics with a web browser enabling remote monitoring and troubleshooting
