Communication between IRC5 and PLC through EtherNet IP


I am trying to establish communication between my robot's IRC5 controller and a PLC through EtherNet IP. The goal is to write some data into PLC memory from IRC5. The data to write originates as part of RAPID code. I am planning to use the implicit messaging type of EtherNet/IP protocol. 

I looked up at the configuration of my IRC5. It is equipped with 841-1 EtherNet/IP m/s module.

Is this sufficient to achieve what I am after or do I need any additional hardware?
