Ethernet IP communication
any one can help please
if possible to establish communication Ethernet IP without eds file in 800 XA ????
In my understanding is not possible, the eds file is the file for integrate different devices comunicated by ethernet IP protocol, is like gsd file for Profibus or cff file for Fieldbus Foundation.
you can find more information here, page 39.
This error appears when the eds file doesn’t correspond with to the communication module in your PLC.
Another thing is, the communication Ethernet was developed for Allen Bradley Controllogix 5000 series (controllogix and compactLogix PLC), not for microLogix PLC.
see this page for find the EDS file:
