Control Net Router

ControlNet Router

A-CNR

The ControlNet Router provides an efficient method of bridging between ControlNet and Ethernet networks. The module exchanges data with a Logix controller via a ControlNet bridge (eg. 1756-CNB) using Scheduled Class 1 communication or Unscheduled Class 3 / UCMM messaging. The size of the produced and consumed data is user-configurable up to 400 bytes.

The IO data can be accessed via Ethernet using either the PCCC or EtherNet/IP™ protocols. The former allows the module to emulate user-defined PLC5-type data files simplifying the data exchange with PanelViews. The module also provides a range of statistics on Ethernet and ControlNet to assist with fault finding.

A built-in webserver provides detailed diagnostics of system configuration and operation, including the display of ControlNet operation and communication statistics, without the need for any additional software.

Features and Benefits

  • ControlNet to Ethernet Interface
  • Connect Ethernet-only PanelViews to Logix via ControlNet
  • Supports Scheduled & Unscheduled ControlNet for PanelViews
  • Program Logix controllers via ControlNet
  • Advanced Diagnostics

Configuration

The Slate Configuration Utility software is used for configuration and troubleshooting of the module. The stand-alone configuration utility allows users to define the setup and configuration of the ControlNet Router module, connections with controllers and devices.

RSNetworx for ControlNet is used to schedule the ControlNet Router over the ControlNet network.
