5/11 Functions (continued) Modicon Quantum automation platform PlantStruxure Ethernet Architectures Industrial Ethernet communication services Functions (continued) EtherNet/IP standard communication protocol EtherNet/IP is an industrial communications protocol based on the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) which is owned and managed by the ODVA, an international, independent standards organization (www.odva.org). Standard, unmodified Ethernet Schneider Electric added EtherNet/IP as a core network in 2007. EtherNet/IP is very similar to Modbus TCP in many aspects. In particular, it shares the same principles of standardization and interoperability. EtherNet/IP operates on the same equipment and infrastructure as Modbus TCP, and both protocols can operate simultaneously on the network at any time. Advanced services and high performance EtherNet/IP is built on an object-based model. Data in each EtherNet/IP device is frouped in Objects, and each device may have different types of objects, depending on the purpose of the device. EtherNet/IP Objects The Ethernet modules implement the standard set of objects prescribed by the ODVA. The most common objects are listed below: Communication Identity Object (01hex) Message Router Object (02hex) Assembly Object (04hex) Connection Object (05hex) Connection Configuration Object (F3hex) Connection Manager Object (06hex) Modbus Object (44hex) EtherNet/IP Network QoS Object (48hex) Port Object (F4hex) TCP/IP Interface Object (F5hex) Ethernet Link Object (F6hex) Diagnostics EtherNet/IP Interface Diagnostic Object (350hex) EtherNet/IP IO Scanner Diagnostic Object (351hex) IO Connection Diagnostic Object (352hex) EtherNet/IP Explicit Connection Diagnostic Object (353hex) 2 1 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2 1 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
