Ethernet/IP Connection between Allen Bradley PLC and IRC5
I would like help in establishing connection between AB ControlLogix PLC and IRC5 controller. I have read the Application manual for Ethernet/IP Scanner/Adapter, Technical Reference Manuals and browsed different websites, forums etc. and still have issues trying to establish connection between the devices.
The IRC5 has '841-1 Ethernet/IP Scanner/Adapter' option installed. AB Ethernet card 1756-ENBT/A is connected to LAN3(X5) port on the IRC5 controller. I intend to use the PLC as scanner and IRC5 as adapter.
Service Port(X2): 192.168.125.1
Communications->Industrial Network, added EthernetIP adapter network.
Communications->Ethernet/IP Internal Device, already present EtherNet/IP Internal Safety Adapter Device, Connection IO size: 8 bytes, Safety Enabled.
In PLC, added Generic Ethernet Module:
Comm Format: SINT
Input Assembly Instance: 100
Input Size: 8 (8-bit)
Output Assembly Instance: 112
Output Size: 8 (8-bit)
Configuration Assembly Instance: 1
Configuration Size: 0
When I go online with the PLC, the status for this module just shows "Waiting".
The other thing I tried is install the enip.eds and enip_cip_safety.eds files and add these in PLC's IO tree but it shows the same status as "Waiting".
If anyone has any guiding instructions, please let me know.
