Communicating with Acromag Series 9xxEN-60xx and XTxxx2-xxx Ethernet/IP Modules from Compact Logix Controllers

This document illustrates a procedure for configuring message commands intended for Acromag Busworks® Series Ethernet/IP modules using ladder logic programming software and a Compact Logix Programmable Controller. It is assumed that the user has a working knowledge of ladder logic programming, the RSLogix5000 software, and the Compact Logix hardware.

Communicate with Acromag Series 9xxEN-60xx Ethernet Modules from Compact Logix Devices

  1. From a new or existing project, right click on the Compact Logix Ethernet controller (shown as 1769-L32E in this example) and select New Module.
  2. In the Select Module Type box, select Ethernet-Module as shown in the example, and click [OK].
  3. The Module Properties window should automatically open. Under the Name box, type in the name of the module. In the example below left, the 964EN module is used.
    The type of Communication Format used by all modules is Data – INT.
    Note: Once the [Finish] button is pressed, the Comm format of the module cannot be changed.
    Under the Address / Host Name box, the IP Address must be selected and the IP Address of the module typed in. In the example at left, the IP Address of the module is 128.1.1.101, but this will vary depending on the address of your Compact Logix controller. See chart on next page for Comm Format and Connection Parameters.
