Supported Allen-Bradley Controllers
ControlLogix 5500 Series Communications with ControlLogix can be accomplished through an EtherNet/IP communication module for Ethernet communications or through a 1761-NET-ENI module for Ethernet-to-serial communications using the controller's serial port.
CompactLogix 5300 Series Ethernet communications with CompactLogix requires a processor with a built-in EtherNet/IP port such as the 1769-L35E. Communications with CompactLogix otherwise requires a 1761-NET-ENI module for Ethernet-to- serial communications using the controller's serial port.
FlexLogix 5400 Series Communications with FlexLogix can be accomplished through a 1788-ENBT daughtercard for Ethernet communications or through a 1761-NET-ENI module for Ethernet-to-serial communications using the controller's serial port.
The driver supports the Allen-Bradley SoftLogix5800 Series Controller and requires an Ethernet card in the SoftLogix PC.
The driver supports the PLC-5 Series and SLC 500 Series with a Data Highway Plus interface. This is accomplished through a DH+ gateway and requires one of the aforementioned PLCs, an EtherNet/IP communication module, and a 1756-DHRIO-interface module (both residing in the ControlLogix rack).
