An ExoEdge source for EtherNet/IP.

Project description

Description

Warning: Currently only compatible with Python3 (>=3.6.1)

The purpose of this repository is to provide an ExoEdge protocol source that can get read EtherNet/IP tags from a PLC.

A protocol source (often just referred to as a “source”) is the glue between ExoEdge and the field-bus that you want to get data to and from. It is helpful to think of a source as a plugin to ExoEdge.

This source utilizes the pycomm3 library and is subject to the same restrictions.

Install

Installing a build can be done in several ways:

Installing From Source

$ python setup.py install

Installing From Builds

$ pip install dist/*.whl

Installing From Builds

$ pip install exoedge_ethernetip

Usage

Configure the channel in ExoSense by inputting an Application of ‘EtherNetIP’ and including both ‘path’ and ‘tag’ in the app_specfic_config

The path argument can take 3 forms:
  • IP Address Only (10.20.30.100) - Use if PLC is in slot 0 or if connecting to CompactLogix
  • IP Address/Slot (10.20.30.100/1) - Use if PLC is not in slot 0
  • CIP Routing Path (10.20.30.100/backplane/3/enet/10.20.40.100/backplane/0) - Use for more complex routing
