PN – Ethernet/IP Coupler
With the PN/EtherNetIP Coupler, a simple and uncomplicated connection of a PROFINET machine to an EtherNet/IP machine is possible. The PN/EtherNetIP Coupler allows data transmission between a PROFINET controller and an EtherNet/IP PLC.
Received input data on one side of the network are made available as output data on the other side of the network to the PLC. The I/O data exchange takes place live and as fast as possible without further handling blocks.
The maximum size of the transferable I/O data is 1024 bytes. Up to 3 input and 3 output assemblies can be configured on the EtherNet/IP network side. Up to 300 slots are available for I/O modules.
The integration into the PLC engineering tool is made possible by a GSDML file, an extra configuration software is not necessary. The configuration of the I/O data to be exchanged is performed in the Siemens engineering tool. An EDS file matching the configuration can then be downloaded from the website by the PN/EtherNetIP Coupler and used to configure the EtherNet/IP PLC.
