WHITE PAPERSin EtherNet/IP
By Michael Robinson, Endress+Hauser
More Ethernet nodes will be connected this or any other month than will have been connected in the entire history of fieldbus. This economy of scale and the tremendous technological advancements that go along with it is what makes EtherNet/IP more capable than a fieldbus network, now and especially in the future.
By Ludwig Leurs, Bosch Rexroth
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.
