Our ControlLogix® system uses connections to establish communication links between devices. Our Bulletin 1756 Chassis-based communication modules help make those connections and implement network-based access control for users, devices, and networks in the 1756 chassis. We offer a variety of modules that support EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, ControlNet, and other network protocols.
The Ethernet Industrial (EtherNet/IP) network protocol is an open industrial-networking standard that:
The DeviceNet network uses the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) to control, configure, and collect data for industrial devices and:
The ControlNet network uses the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) to combine the functionality of an I/O network and a peer-to-peer network that provides high-speed performance for both functions and:
