PLX31-EIP-PND

EtherNet/IP™ to PROFINET® IO Device Gateway

PLX31-EIP-PND

The EtherNet/IP™ to PROFINET® IO Device (slave) gateway offers bi-directional data transfers between EtherNet/IP™ controllers and a PROFINET® IO controller. The EtherNet/IP™ Driver supports I/O connections for guaranteed data delivery or Message instructions to send data to/from the PACs. The gateway supports 1440 bytes of input data and 1440 bytes of output data for larger applications.

In addition, the gateway’s multiple I/O connections, allow you to set different RPIs for control data and module diagnostics, enabling you to optimize your Ethernet bandwidth.

Features and Benefits

  • Embedded EDS Add-On Profile allows for simplified integration and reduced configuration time for Rockwell Automation PACs.
  • No ladder programming is required when using I/O connections.
  • Multiple I/O connections allow you to set different RPIs for status and control data, enabling Ethernet bandwidth optimization.
  • Communication via an I/O connection provides guaranteed data delivery and enables the PAC to monitor for communication faults.
  • SD card slot (SD card optional) is used for storing configuration files in the event of a disaster.
  • ProSoft Discovery Service allows your PC to find the gateway and change its default IP address without being on the same subnet.
  • Video setup tutorial provided at psft.com/Ap5
