Paper discusses how to connect sercos to Ethernet/IP, allowing EtherNet/IP and sercos devices to be operated over a single Ethernet cable.
By Dayin XU, Rockwell Automation, et al
Because EtherNet/IP has been built in strict accordance with the ISO/OSI 7 layer model, it is largely abstracted from IP which lives at layer 3. Incorporation of IPv6 into the EtherNet/IP specification will enable smooth migration paths for both device vendors and end users.
By Robert A. Reid, Panduit, et al
For many EtherNet/IP applications requiring fiber, the use of currently available cabling systems presents unique challenges. Recently, fiber manufacturers have introduced Hard Clad Silica (HCS) fibers with improved bandwidth for existing 100Mb/sec EtherNet/IP networks.
