EthernetIP Example with PCMM as Scanner and AKD as Adapter

This article is aimed to get some basic overview of EtherentIP communication with AKD. A variety of controllers are supporting ethernetIP.

Irrespective of the controller, if once the communication is alive between the AKD and the controller, rest is controlling via Control and Status Word. In this example I am using PCMM as ethernetIP IO scanner.

Under the fieldbus settings you can put in the IP address of the Adapter AKD.

Once the communication is alive you can see the Communication LEDs glowing in the control panel.

As of now the following FBs have been programmed to test AKD over EthernetIP.
