ControlNet communication via ABC-CNT to ControlLogix PLC's.

This communications solution is almost identical to the EtherNet/IP solution. Here, you will find files for two tested solutions, for one MC³ and one for two Genetix connected to one ABC_CNT.

See also Genetix GCM Configuration and Troubleshooting for DF-1, or MC3 Configuration and Troubleshooting for DF-1 and The Common Interface Table (CIT) specification for details.

Please note that the first DWORD in the ControNet scanner's in area is added in by Allen-Bradley. There is a one DWORD offset compared to the EtherNet/IP solution. When you set the size of the In area for the adapter, you have to add one DWORD to the size in the ABC-CNT.

 

Example files for one MC³

RSLogix V13 Ladder file.
