Fast copying I/O Data (Big data support)

The Linking Device’s primary function is the fast transfer of large cyclic I/O data between the two networks. There is also support for acyclic data. This offloads your Logix PLC from working with additional calculations.

The Linking Device acts as a slave (adapter) on EtherNet/IP and as a powerful Master on the PROFIBUS side, handling up to 7000 bytes of I/O data. The data transfer between the two networks is completely transparent.

Minimise costs when connecting PROFIBUS networks and devices to ControlLogix® or CompactLogix® controllers with an EtherNet/IP interface.

Connect, Configure, Done!

EtherNet/IP Linking Devices are configured using a Custom Add On Profile for Studio 5000 Logix Designer which dynamically generates data structures based on the configuration. No ladder logic files (add-on instructions) needed.

Furthermore, it also supports the automatic generation of named and structured Studio 5000 controller tags, which eliminates the need to create alias tags.

Seamless integration with Studio 5000

With its unique Studio 5000® Logix designer integration, everything is accessible from within Studio 5000, including PROFIBUS network configuration. No extra 3rd-party software or licenses needed.

Product Information

  • Allows support for “Big Data” — handling up to 7000 bytes of I/O data over multiple I/O connections on EtherNet/IP
  • Speed up configuration through seamless integration with Studio 5000 Logix Designer.
  • Compatible with all ControlLogix and CompactLogix PLCs supporting EtherNet/IP
  • Everything configured through Studio 5000 — no 3rd party software or licenses needed
  • Dynamically generates data structures in Studio 5000 with no required user logic
  • Configuration of the PROFIBUS network and data structures through Customer Add-On Profile
  • Routing of acyclic data via predefined CIP objects available for specific PROFIBUS DPV1 read and write requests
  • Control/Status information added to I/O data for diagnostic purposes
  • Live List of the active status of connected slaves
  • No need for long and expensive PROFIBUS cables — use Ethernet cables for the longest distance.
