1734-AENTR Adapter Thumbwheel Settings
You can set the thumbwheels on the 1734-AENTR adapter to perform different
functions. Refer to the following table to see the valid thumbwheel settings and
the corresponding function.
Setting
Function
001...254
Sets the network address.
Refer to Set the Network Address on page 27 for more information.

Refer to Set the Chassis Size by Using the Thumbwheels on the 1734AENTR Adapter on page 6 for more information.
888
Restores default factory settings.
If the thumbwheels are set to an invalid number, the adapter checks to see if
DHCP is enabled. If DHCP is enabled, the adapter requests an address from a
DHCP server. The DHCP server also assigns other Transport Control Protocol
(TCP) parameters.
Set the Chassis Size
The I/O adapters for EtherNet/IP require configuration of their chassis size
before you can make any I/O connections. The factory default setting for the
chassis size is one slot, which represents the adapter by itself.
You must set the chassis size to a number equaling one slot for the adapter plus
one slot for each I/O module present in the backplane of the adapter.
For example, if your system consists of one adapter and four I/O modules, set the
chassis size to 5.

For firmware revision 5.015 or later, you can set the chassis size without a
computer by using the thumbwheels on the 1734-AENTR adapter.
1. Make sure that the adapter is not powered.
2. Set the thumbwheels to 8xx where xx is the chassis size value from 01...64.
For example, set the thumbwheels to 802 to set the chassis size to 2, 803 to
set the chassis size to 3, and so on up to 864 to set the chassis size to 64.
TIP
Press a pen tip into the center and perpendicular to the + or the - button
to change the number. You only need a small amount of force to press the
button (approximately 2N).

Chassis size mismatch
Make sure that the chassis size value matches the total number
of the adapter plus the I/O modules.
For example, if you have 1 adapter and 10 I/O modules, then the
chassis size is 11. Therefore, the thumbwheels must be set to
811.
Module fault
Refer to the installation instructions publication for the affected
module for information on how to interpret its status indicators.
7. Remove power from the adapter and then address the error accordingly.
8. Once you have addressed the error, repeat Steps 1...5.
9. Once you have set the chassis size by using the thumbwheels, remove power
from the adapter and then set the thumbwheels according to the IP address
setting that you need.
For more information, see Set the Network Address for POINT I/O
Adapters on page 27.
Adapter Replacement
Note that during a connection request from the controller, the chassis size setting
is not communicated to the adapter. You must always set this chassis size using a
separate operation. This includes situations when you are replacing an adapter.
The adapter does not allow any I/O connections until it is configured with the
appropriate chassis size and the proper number of POINT I/O or
ArmorPOINT I/O modules are present.

Chapter 1
Overview of the 1734 POINT and 1738 ArmorPOINT EtherNet/IP Adapters
Empty Slots and RIUP Situations
The POINT I/O system cannot detect an empty terminal base. For this reason,
there are numerous situations in which you can potentially configure a system
that is unusable or one that exercises unintended control.
In an attempt to address these situations, you must observe the following rules for
I/O system construction and the removal and reinsertion of modules.
• A correct I/O system does not have any empty terminal bases.
• After you cycle power, the adapter will not allow any I/O connections
until the number of modules comprising the chassis plus one for the
adapter equals the stored chassis size.
– It cannot assume any safe operation until there is a match between the
number of modules indicating their presence in the chassis and what the
adapter has saved in non-volatile memory because it cannot detect
empty terminal bases.
– Actual module identification (such as, electronic keying) is done when
connection establishment requests are received from the controller or
controllers.
• A POINT I/O module removed under power does not disrupt operation
of the other I/O modules. On the other hand, ArmorPOINT I/O
modules are not intended to be removed under power.
– When you remove a module, the adapter detects what changed.
– Whenever you remove a module with an active connection from the
POINT I/O system, the adapter indicates this by flashing the
POINTBus Status LED red and reports a minor recoverable fault.
• If more than one contiguous module is removed under power, connections
to all modules in the contiguous missing module set are disallowed until all
modules are replaced. Because the adapter cannot detect an empty base, it
does not know the physical positioning of the modules until all the missing
modules are replaced.
• If a module separating two sets of contiguous missing modules is removed,
the two sets merge into a single set. All the modules must be replaced
before connections are permitted to any module in the set.
• If modules of different types are removed and returned to the wrong
locations, attempts to connect to these modules will fail during verification
of the electronic ID (providing that keying has not been disabled).
• If modules of the same type are removed and returned to the wrong
locations, they accept connections from the controller or controllers and
reconfigure with the correct data once they pass their electronic keying
check.
• These removal and return situations exist whether the system is under
power or not. If the system is under power, the situation arises immediately.
If the system is not under power, the situation arises in the next power
cycle.

Overview of the 1734 POINT and 1738 ArmorPOINT EtherNet/IP Adapters
Chapter 1
Power Up a System for the First Time
When you power the I/O for the first time, the adapter must assign slot addresses
to every module in the backplane. All I/O modules ship configured at the same
address.
When you first apply power, we expect that all but one module on the backplane
exhibits a solid red Module Status LED.
One by one the adapter resets these modules and addresses them appropriately.
The amount of time that this operation takes is proportional to the size of your I/
O system.
Use of the Common
Industrial Protocol (CIP)
The adapter uses the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP). CIP is the application
layer protocol specified for EtherNet/IP, the Ethernet Industrial Protocol, as well
as for ControlNet and DeviceNet networks. It is a message-based protocol that
implements a relative path to send a message from the producing device in a
system to the consuming devices.
The producing device contains the path information that steers the message along
the proper route to reach its consumers. Since the producing device holds this
information, other devices along the path simply pass this information; they do
not store it.
This has the following significant benefits:
• You do not need to configure routing tables in the bridging modules,
which greatly simplifies maintenance and module replacement.
• You maintain full control over the route taken by each message, which
enables you to select alternative paths for the same end device.
Understand the Producer/
Consumer Model
The CIP producer and consumer networking model replaces the old source and
destination (master and slave) model. The producer and consumer model reduces
network traffic and increases speed of transmission. In traditional I/O systems,
controllers poll input modules to obtain their input status. In the CIP system,
input modules are not polled by a controller. Instead, they produce (multicast or
unicast) their data either upon a change of state (COS) or periodically.
Multicast is the default mode for version 17 Logix and earlier controllers and
unicast is the default for version 18 with multicast as a selectable option.
The frequency of update depends upon the options chosen during configuration
and where on the network the input module resides. The input module,
therefore, is a producer of input data, and the controller is a consumer of the data.
Rockwell Automation Publication 1734E-UM017D-EN-E - September 2017
9
Chapter 1
Overview of the 1734 POINT and 1738 ArmorPOINT EtherNet/IP Adapters
The controller also produces data for other controllers to consume. The
produced and consumed data is accessible by multiple controllers and other
devices over the EtherNet/IP network. This data exchange conforms to the
producer and consumer model.
Specify the Requested
Packet Interval (RPI)
The Requested Packet Interval or RPI is the update rate specified for a particular
piece of data on the network. The RPI can be specified for the adapter and
include all of the I/O modules in the I/O system (using a rack-optimization or
enhanced rack-optimization(1) connection) or specified for a particular module
(using direct connection).
When you add a module or an adapter to the I/O configuration of a controller,
you must enter the RPI as a parameter. This value specifies how often to produce
the data for that device. For example, if you specify an RPI of 50 ms, it means that
every 50 ms the device should send its data to the controller and the controller
should send the consumed (output) data to the device.
Use RPIs only for devices that exchange data. For example, a ControlLogix®
EtherNet/IP bridge module in the same chassis as the controller does not require
an RPI, because it is not a data-producing member of the system. Its use is only as
a bridge to remote racks.
(1) Enhanced rack-optimization connections are only supported by the 1734 adapter.
Support for Rackoptimization, Enhanced
Rack-optimization, and
Direct Connections
The I/O adapters supports direct, rack-optimization and enhanced rackoptimization(1) connections. A direct connection is a real-time data transfer link
between the controller and the module occupying the slot that the configuration
data references.
Direct I/O connections occur at a cyclic rate specified by the RPI during
configuration. A rack-optimization connection is a grouping of data from one or
more digital I/O modules into a single block of data sent over a single connection
at the same data rate.
Analog, safety, and specialty modules cannot participate in the rack-optimization
connection; these modules require an enhanced rack-optimization(1) or direct
I/O connection.
Enhanced rack-optimization connections reduce the total number of
connections needed to transfer data when using many digital and analog, or
specialty modules in a system.
Rack-optimization connections reduce the total number of connections needed
to transfer data when using many digital I/O modules in a system. The following
example illustrates the benefit of rack-optimization connections.
10
Rockwell Automation Publication 1734E-UM017D-EN-E - September 2017
Overview of the 1734 POINT and 1738 ArmorPOINT EtherNet/IP Adapters
Chapter 1
Assume you set up a system that contains eight digital I/O modules interfaced to
an adapter. If you use direct connections to transfer data to each of the these I/O
modules, you need eight connections to transfer all of the data, one to each of the
eight I/O modules. If you use a rack-optimization connection to transfer the data,
you only need a single connection – the connection to the I/O adapter.
IMPORTANT
Although rack-optimization and enhanced rack-optimization connections
offer an efficient way to use resources, there are a few limitations on
their use:
• You can use only rack-optimization or enhanced rack-optimization
connections to send data to and from digital I/O modules.
• Safety modules, IO link module, and third-party I/O modules can not
participate in enhanced rack-optimization connections.
• Enhanced rack-optimization does not support a listen only
connection. Do not use enhanced rack-optimization if your
application requires a connection for monitoring.
• All data is sent at the same time as the RPI rate of the I/O adapters.
If the update rate required for a digital module is different from the
RPI of the rack-optimization or enhanced rack-optimization
connection, a direct connection to that I/O module is required.
See the EtherNet/IP Embedded Switch Technology Application Guide,
publication ENET-AP005, for more information on connections.
(1) Enhanced rack-optimization connections are only supported by the 1734 adapter.
Mixing Rack-optimization, Enhanced Rack-optimization, and
Direct Connections
You can mix communication formats for different I/O modules communicating
through the same adapter. I/O modules set up to use rack-optimization or
enhanced rack-optimization(1) communicate at the rate of the RPI configured for
the adapter. I/O modules configured for direct communication communicate at
their own individual RPIs and ignore the rack-optimization RPI.
(1) Enhanced rack-optimization connections are only supported by the 1734 adapter.

Configure the Adapter with RSLogix 5000 or
Logix Designer Software
Introduction
This chapter guides you through the steps required to configure your modules
using the RSLogix 5000 or Logix Designer(1) software. Note that the modules
presented in this chapter can be configured using RSLogix 5000 software, version
17, or later.
Before using your adapter in an EtherNet/IP network, you need to configure it
with an IP address, subnet mask, and optional Gateway address. This chapter
describes these configuration requirements and the procedures for providing
them. Here are ways you can do this:
• Use the Rockwell BootP/DHCP Server tool, version 2.3 or later, that ships
with RSLogix 5000 or RSLinx software.
– You can also use this utility to reconfigure a device with an IP address
you must change.
• Use a third party DHCP server.
• Use the Network Address thumbwheel switches.
• Have your network administrator configure the adapter via the network
DHCP server.
See the table for where to find information in this chapter.

Chapter 3
Configure the Adapter with RSLogix 5000 or Logix Designer Software
Adding POINT and ArmorPOINT modules through RSLogix 5000 involves
the same general procedures. Note, however, that the two modules do not have
exactly similar Module Definition properties or configuration parameters. The
customization of both modules are distinctly covered in the next sections.
Configuration
Requirements
Before you can use your adapter, you must configure its IP address, its subnet
mask, and, optionally, a gateway address. You can use the Rockwell BootP/
DHCP Server tool, version 2.3 or later, to perform the configuration. You can
also use a DHCP server or the network address switches to configure these
parameters.
ATTENTION: You must only use Series C and above POINT I/O modules
with 1734-AENTR EtherNet/IP Adapters. Series A or Series B POINT I/O
modules do not work with 1734-AENTR EtherNet/IP Adapters (does not
apply to POINTGuard modules).
If you need to reset the adapter to factory defaults, see Work with the
Configuration Pages on page 106.
IP Address
The IP address identifies each node on the IP network (or system of connected
networks). Each TCP/IP node on a network (including the adapter) must have a
unique IP address.
The IP address is 32 bits long and has a Network ID part and Host ID part.
Networks are classified A, B, C, (or other). The class of the network determines
how an IP address is formatted.

A
192…223
C
128…191
B
224… 255
other
Each node on the same physical network must have an IP address of the same
class and must have the same network ID. Each node on the same network must
have a different Host ID thus giving it a unique IP address.
24
Rockwell Automation Publication 1734E-UM017D-EN-E - September 2017
Configure the Adapter with RSLogix 5000 or Logix Designer Software
Chapter 3
IP addresses are written as four decimal integers (0…255) separated by periods
where each integer gives the value of one byte of the IP address.
EXAMPLE
For example, the 32-bit IP address:
10000000 00000001 00000000 00000001 is written as
128.1.0.1
Gateway Address
This section applies to multi-network systems. If you have a single network
system, refer to the next section.
The Gateway Address is the default address of a network. It provides a single
domain name and point of entry to the site. Gateways connect individual physical
networks into a system of networks.
When a node needs to communicate with a node on another network, a gateway
transfers the data between the two networks. The figure shows gateway G
connecting Network 1 with Network 2.
A
128.1.0.1
128.1.0.2
Network 1
G
B
C
128.2.0.1
128.2.0.2
128.2.0.3
Network 2
When host B with IP address 128.2.0.1 communicates with host C, it knows
from C’s IP address that C is on the same network. in an Ethernet environment, B
can then resolve C’s IP address into a hardware address (MAC address) and
communicate with C directly.
When host B communicates with host A, it knows from A’s IP address that A is
on another network (the network IDs are different). In order to send data to A, B
must use the IP address of the gateway connecting the two networks. In this
example, the gateway’s IP address on Network 2 is 128.2.0.3.
The gateway has two IP addresses (128.1.0.2 and 128.2.0.3). The first must be
used by hosts on Network 1 and the second must be used by hosts on Network 2.
To be usable, a gateway of a host must be addressed using a network ID matching
its own.
Rockwell Automation Publication 1734E-UM017D-EN-E - September 2017
25
Chapter 3
Configure the Adapter with RSLogix 5000 or Logix Designer Software
Subnet Mask
The subnet mask is used for splitting IP networks into a series of subgroups, or
subnets. The mask is a binary pattern that is matched up with the IP address to
turn part of the Host ID address field into a field for subnets.
EXAMPLE
Take Network 2 (a Class B network) in the previous
example and add another physical network. Selecting the
following subnet mask would add two additional
network ID bits, allowing for four physical networks:
11111111 11111111 11000000 00000000 = 255.255.192.0
These two bits of the Host ID are used to
extend the network ID.
Two bits of the Class B host ID are used to extend the network ID. Each unique
combination of bits in the part of the Host ID where subnet mask bits are 1
specifies a different physical network.
The new configuration is:
A
128.1.0.1
Network 1
128.1.0.2
G
B
C
128.2.64.1
128.2.64.3
128.2.64.2
Network 2.1
G2
D
E
128.2.128.1
128.2.128.3
128.2.128.2
Network 2.2
A second network with Hosts D and E was added. Gateway G2 connects
Network 2.1 with Network 2.2.
Hosts D and E will use Gateway G2 to communicate with hosts not on
Network 2.2.
Hosts B and C will use Gateway G to communicate with hosts not on
Network 2.1.
When B is communicating with D, G (the configured Gateway for B) will route
the data from B to D through G2.

Chapter 3
The adapters ship DHCP-enabled and with the thumbwheels or switches set to
999. You can set the network Internet Protocol (IP) address as follows.
Set the Network Address for POINT I/O Adapters
• Use the pen-push thumbwheels located on the adapter. Press either the +
or - button with a pen tip to change the number.
• Use a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server, such as
Rockwell Automation BootP/DHCP Server.
• Retrieve the IP address from non-volatile memory.

The adapter reads the thumbwheels first to determine if the thumbwheels are set
to a valid number. You set the node address by using the 3-position pen-push
thumbwheel using a pen tip.
Note: Press a pen tip into the center and perpendicular to the + or the - button to
change the number. You only need a small amount of force to press the button
(approximately 2N).
Valid settings range from 001…254. When you use the thumbwheel to assign an
address and set it to 001, the adapter gateway address is set to 0.0.0.0. and the
subnet mask is set to 255.255.255.0. When you use the thumbwheel to assign an
address and set it between 002...254, the adapter gateway address is set to
192.168.1.1.
The adapter does not have a host name assigned, or use any Domain Name
System when using the thumbwheel settings.
If DHCP is not enabled, the adapter uses the IP address, along with other TCP
configurable parameters, stored in non-volatile memory.

• Adjust the switches in front of the module
• Use a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server such as
Rockwell Automation BootP/DHCP Server.
• Retrieve the IP address from non-volatile memory
The adapter reads the switches first to determine if the switches are set to a valid
number. Set the network address by adjusting the three switches on the front of
the adapter.
Figure 1 - Network Address Example
This example shows the network address
set at 163.
44831
Use a small blade screwdriver to rotate the switches. Line up the small notch on
the switch with the number setting you wish to use. Valid settings range from
001…254.
When you use the switches to assign an address and set it to 001, the adapter
gateway address is set to 0.0.0.0. and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. When
you use the switches to assign an address and set it to a valid number between
002...254, the adapter gateway address is set to 192.168.1.1.
If the switches are set to an invalid number (for example, 000 or a value greater
than 254 excluding 888), the adapter checks to see if DHCP is enabled. If DHCP
is enabled, the adapter requests an address from a DHCP server. The DHCP
server also assigns other Transport Control Protocol (TCP) parameters.
If DHCP is not enabled, the adapter uses the IP address, along with other TCP
configurable parameters, stored in non-volatile memory.
WARNING: When you change switch settings while power is on, an
electrical arc can occur. This could cause an explosion in hazardous
location installations.
Be sure that power is removed or the area is nonhazardous before
proceeding.

Rockwell Automation Publication 1734E-UM017D-EN-E - September 2017
Configure the Adapter with RSLogix 5000 or Logix Designer Software
Use DHCP Software to
Configure Your Adapter
Chapter 3
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) software automatically assigns
IP addresses to client stations logging onto a TCP/IP network.
DHCP is based on BootP and maintains some backward compatibility. The main
difference is that BootP was designed for manual configuration, while DHCP
allows for dynamic allocation of network addresses and configurations to newly
attached devices.
Be cautious about using DHCP software to configure your adapter. A DHCP
server typically assigns a finite lease time to the offered IP address.
When 50% of the leased time has expired, the adapter attempts to renew its IP
address with the DHCP server.
The possibility exists that the adapter will be assigned a different IP address,
which would cause the adapter to cease communicating with the ControlLogix
controller.
See Configure the Adapter with Fixed IP Address in Chapter 4 to configure the
adapter with a fixed IP address.
ATTENTION: To avoid unintended control or loss of control, the
I/O adapter must be assigned a fixed IP address. A dynamically provided
IP address should be used only at initial configuration. If a DHCP server is
used, it must be configured to assign the same IP address to your adapter.
Failure to observe this precaution may result in unintended machine motion
or loss of process control.

Recover From an
Overloaded Adapter
Chapter 4
Each I/O connection established with the I/O adapter consumes a portion of
microprocessor bandwidth. The amount of bandwidth used by a connection
depends on several variables, such as the requested packet interval (RPI), number
of I/O modules involved in the connection, and rate of change of the I/O.
The AENTR adapter continuously monitors this bandwidth and rejects requests
for new I/O connections when there is insufficient bandwidth available to
support the new connection.
The condition where the I/O adapters cannot support the connection due to a
limit of the bandwidth of the microprocessor is shown on the Connection tab of
the Module Properties dialog.
If you encounter this condition, the only action you can take is to alter the
existing connections to reduce the amount of microprocessor bandwidth
consumed. The most likely fixes for this condition include the following:
• Increase the RPI.
• Decrease the number of connections.
• Remove modules from the rack-optimization I/O connection.
• Remove the rack-optimization connection if there are no modules
participating in it.
Chapter Summary
This chapter provided instructions on how to configure the POINT I/O
Adapter for Direct Connection through the RSLogix 5000 software. It included
information about setting up the hardware and configuring the I/O, adding the
adapter to the configuration, and configuring the adapter with a fixed IP address.

Overview
This chapter guides you through the steps required to configure your AENTR
adapter with direct, rack-optimization, and enhanced rack-optimization I/O
connections using RSLogix 5000 or Logix Designer(1) software.
You can mix I/O connection formats for different I/O modules communicating
through the same adapter. I/O modules set up to use rack optimization or
enhanced rack-optimization communicate at the rate of the RPI configured for
the adapter.
I/O modules controlled by a direct I/O connection communicate at their own set
RPI. The RPI of the rack-optimization or enhanced rack-optimization I/O
connection has no bearing on the direct I/O connections. The modules
presented in this chapter have a configuration using RSLogix 5000 software,
version 17, or later. The chapter contains the following main sections.

The following section describe how to set up the I/O Hardware.
Set Up the POINT I/O Hardware
In this example, a ControlLogix chassis contains the L63 controller in slot 1 and a
1756-ENBT bridge module in slot 3. In this example, we mounted the
1734-AENTR adapter on a DIN rail in slot 0, with a 1734-OW2/C relay output
module in slot 1, a 1734-OV4E/C sink output module in slot 3, and two other
POINT I/O modules which will not be controlled by this Logix controller in
slots 2 and 4.

You have now built the I/O tree and the RSLogix 5000 software uses the chassis
size from the General tab of the adapter for the rack-optimization I/O
connection. Now you need to configure this new chassis size value into the
adapter non-volatile memory. This procedure synchronizes the chassis size value
from the RSLogix 5000 software into the adapter hardware. You must be online
to perform this procedure.
1. Verify that the RSLogix 5000 software is online.

Access Module Data
Chapter 5
Use the following information to use the I/O adapter data in the ladder logic
program:
• POINT_IO_Adapter — the name you gave to your EtherNet adapter
• # — slot number of POINT I/O module
• C — configuration, I = input, O = output
Use the controller tags in your ladder program to read input data or write output
data.
• For ControlLogix controller information, refer to ControlLogix System
User Manual, publication 1756-UM001.
• Slot Status Bits: The Slot Status bits display the connection status for each
of the POINT I/O modules that use a rack-optimization connection.
– Bit 0 is reserved for the adapter and always reports a value of 1.
– Each of the other bits (1 to 63) correspond to a POINT I/O module
that you install in the POINT I/O backplane.
– In this example, we configured the 1734-AENTR adapter for both
rack-optimization and direct connections.
The slot status bits indicate that we installed the module in slot 2 with it
operating correctly:
0 = module participating with no errors and
1 = module not participating or connection error (typically, module
removed/missing)
