It is possible in any way get a Ethernet lines redundancy in EthernetIP communication with two CI873 modules?
W are doing an integration of third party PLC´s through EthernetIP protocol with CI873 modules.
From the field side, all the third party devices include redundancy in the communication through 2 Ethernet separated lines.
For this reason, the customer is demanding us a redundancy in the communication lines from CI873 modules. We understand that redundancy of Ethernet lines is not allowed since the second Ethernet port in CI873 is not functional, however, the redundancy in CI873 modules is possible, so, my question is, did you see any alternative to get a Ethernet lines redundant? It is possible to make a Control Builder program to allow a "redundancy by software"?
Thanks in advance
