The attached document contains both read and write message samples from a ControlLogix, CompactLogix, and SLC 5/05 processors to an SLC 5/04s and PLC5 processor on a DH+ network through the DH+ bridge gateway. Read More
What driver should be used in RSLinx Classic to browse or get data from PLC5 or SLC controllers on a DH+ network?
Viewed 4178 times since Tue, Aug 5, 2014
The best driver to use in RSLinx Classic is the Ethernet Devices driver.  Specify the IP Address of the AN-X(2)-AB-DHRIO gateway in the driver configuration.  The gateway emulates  a 4 slot ControlLogix chassis with an ethernet module... Read More

There are several OPC servers that have been tested or are known to work through the AN-X(2)-AB-DHRIO running the DH+ bridge firmware: RSLinx Classic using the Ethernet Devices driver Wonderware using the DASABCIP driver Kepware using the... Read More
How many Data Highway Plus Nodes can a single AN-X2-AB-DHRIO communicate with?
Viewed 3091 times since Tue, Aug 18, 2015
The AN-X2-AB-DHRIO's Data Highway Plus firmware does not have a specific limit on the number of nodes it can communicate with (beyond the inherent limits of the DH+ protocol itself), however, be aware that DH+ is a serial based token passing... Read More
What are common things that prevent reliable DH+ communications on the AN-X(2)-AB-DHRIO gateway running the DH+ Bridge FW?

If the NS or NET LED is not solid green then check the recommendations below: 1) For networks running at 57k6 or 115k2 bauds it is necessary to have 150 ohm resistors on each end of the network (for 230k4 use 82 ohm resistors) 2) Ensure that at... Read More
Can an AN-X2-AB-DHRIO communicate with a 1756-DHRIO
Viewed 2154 times since Tue, Sep 29, 2015
Although the AN-X2-AB-DHRIO can technically communicate to a 1756-DHRIO (you can see its node on the DH+ network), the AN-X doesn't support CIP routing over DH+, so you can not actually view the backplane of the 1756-DHRIO's rack. ... Read More
