We wrote this manual for control engineers and technicians who are
installing, configuring, and maintaining an EtherNet/IP control system
that communicates with POINT I/O modules through a 1734-AENT
adapter. We assume you have a good understanding of Ethernet
networks and the TCP/IP protocol.
ATTENTION
Common Techniques Used
in This Manual
You must use series C POINT I/O modules with
the 1734-AENT adapter. Series A or B POINT I/O
modules will not work with this adapter.
We use the following conventions throughout this manual.
• Numbered lists provide sequential steps.
• Bulleted lists provide information, not procedural steps.
The screen captures shown in this manual are
pictures of the software’s actual screens.

Preface
How To Use This Manual
This manual contains an overview of the 1734-AENT adapter. It
describes how to install and configure the adapter and provides
examples showing how to use the adapter to communicate with
POINT I/O modules over an EtherNet/IP network.
About the Example Applications
This manual presents two example applications that demonstrate the
procedures for configuring and communicating with POINT I/O
modules using the 1734-AENT adapter. We intend the example
applications as building blocks to help you get your own system up
and running. We recommend that you set up and run the example
applications and use them as guides.
Here is the type of system you’ll be setting up.

Terminology
Refer to the table for the meaning of common terms.
This Term
Means
BootP
BootP (Bootstrap Protocol) is a low-level protocol that provides
configurations to other nodes on a TCP/IP network. BootP
configuration files let you automatically assign IP addresses to an
Ethernet module (you can also obtain subnet masks and gateway
addresses from BootP).
Bridge
A node between two similar communication subnets where protocol
translation is minimal.
CIP
Control and information protocol, the EtherNet/IP application layer
uses the producer/consumer networking model. In this model one
producer broadcasts (multicasts) the data once to all the consumers.
All consumers see the data simultaneously and may choose whether
to consume (receive) the data or not. Delivery time is consistent, no
matter how many consumers there are.
Connection
The communication mechanism from the controller to another
module in the control system, usually used to exchange I/O data.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
6
Preface
This Term
Means
consumer
A destination device in the CIP networking model. See CIP.
CSMA/CD
Carrier sense multiple access/collision detection is the access
method used in Ethernet. When a device wants to gain access to the
network, it checks to see if the network is quiet (senses the carrier).
If it is not, it waits a random amount of time before retrying. If the
network is quiet and two devices access the line at exactly the same
time, their signals collide. When the collision is detected, they both
back off and each waits a random amount of time before retrying.
Determinism
The ability to predict when information will be delivered. Important in
time-critical applications.
DHCP
The dynamic host configuration protocol is an Internet protocol,
similar to BootP, for automating the configuration of computers that
use TCP/IP. DHCP can be used to automatically assign IP addresses,
to deliver IP stack configuration parameters, such as the subnet mask
and default router, and to provide other configuration information,
such as the addresses for printer, time, and news servers.
The 1734-AENT factory default is DHCP enabled. When you apply
power, the module sends a message containing its hardware address
to any DHCP server on the network. The server(s) replies by sending a
message with an appropriate IP address for the adapter. The adapter
responds by acknowledging to a server that it will use the offered IP
address.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
DNS
The domain name system is a hierarchical, distributed method of
organizing the name space of the Internet. The DNS administratively
groups hosts into a hierarchy of authority that allows addressing and
other information to be widely distributed and maintained. A big
advantage to the DNS is that using it eliminates dependence on a
centrally-maintained file that maps host names to addresses.
Ethernet
A physical layer standard using carrier sense multiple access with
collision detection (CSMA/CD) methods.
EtherNet/IP
Ethernet industrial protocol applies a common application layer (CIP)
over Ethernet by encapsulating messages in TCP/UDP/IP.
Ethernet network
A local area network designed for the high-speed exchange of
information between computers and related devices.
Explicit messaging
Non-time critical messaging used for device configuration and data
collection, such as downloading programs or peer-to-peer messaging
between two PLC units.
Full duplex
A mode of communication that allows a device to send and receive
information at the same time, effectively doubling the bandwidth.
Fully qualified
domain name
A fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is a domain name that includes
all higher level domains relevant to the entity named. If you think of
the DNS as a tree-structure with each node having its own label, a
fully qualified domain name for a specific node would be its label
followed by the labels of all the other nodes between it and the root
of the tree. For example, for a host, a FQDN would include the string
that identifies the particular host, plus all domains of which the host
is a part, up to and including the top-level domain (the root domain is
always null). For example, PARIS.NISC.SRI.COM is a fully qualified
domain name for the host at 192.33.33.109.
Preface
This Term
Means
Gateway
A module or set of modules that allows communications between
nodes on dissimilar networks.
Hardware address
Each Ethernet device has a unique hardware address (sometimes
called a MAC address) that is 48 bits. The address appears as six
digits separated by colons (such as, xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx). Each digit has a
value between 0 and 255 (0x00 to 0xFF). This address is assigned in
the hardware and cannot be changed. The hardware address is
required to identify the device if you are using a BOOTP utility.
Host name
The host name is the unique name for a computer within its domain.
It's always the first element of a full name, and, with its domain and
top-level domain suffix, creates the unique name of that computer on
the Internet. For example, let's say a trading website is
www.trading.com. The host name is www, which is not unique on
the web, but is unique within the trading domain.
7
The host name can also refer to the fully qualified domain name
(FQDN), or in this example, www.trading.com. Both naming methods
seem to be used interchangeably in various documents. For the
purposes of this document, the host name will refer to the FQDN, or
as in this example, www.trading.com.
Hub
A central connecting device that joins devices together in a star
configuration. Hubs are generally not suitable for use in I/O control
systems, since they are time-critical applications that cannot tolerate
lost packets.
Implicit messaging
Real-time messaging of I/O data.
IP
Internet protocol that provides the routing mechanism for messages.
All messages contain not only the address of the destination station,
but the address of a destination network, which allows messages to
be sent to multiple networks within an organization or around the
world.
IP address
A 32-bit identification number for each node on an Internet Protocol
network. These addresses are represented as four sets of 8-bit
numbers (numbers from 0 to 255), with decimals between them. Each
node on the network must have a unique IP address.
Latency
The time between initiating a request for data and the beginning of
the actual data transfer.
Multicast
In the CIP producer/consumer model, one producer multicasts
(broadcasts) the data once to all the consumers.
Producer
The source of information in the CIP networking model. See CIP.
Rack-optimized
A physical and logical collection of application modules.
Subnet mask
An extension of the IP address that allows a site to use a single net
ID for multiple networks.
Switch
A network device that cross connects devices or network segments.
A switch provides each sender/receiver the full network bandwidth
(2x in full duplex mode), reduces collisions, and increases
determinism.
TCP
The transport control protocol is a more reliable but slower transport
protocol than UDP. It is used for explicit (not time critical) messaging
in EtherNet/IP.

Transaction
An exchange of request and data and response and data.
UDP
The user datagram protocol (UDP) is a transport protocol that
provides a very simple but fast capability to send datagrams between
two devices. It is used for I/O (implicit) messaging in EtherNet/IP.

Important Adapter
Considerations
1-1
You must use series C POINT I/O modules with
the 1734-AENT adapter. Series A or B POINT I/O
modules will not work with this adapter.
Before you begin using your adapter, note the following important
considerations.
Set the Chassis Size
The 1734-AENT POINT I/O adapter for EtherNet/IP requires
configuration of its chassis size before you can make any I/O
connections. The default setting for the chassis size is 1 slot, which
represents the adapter by itself.
1
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
1-2
About the Adapter
You must set the chassis size to a number equaling 1 slot for the
adapter plus 1 slot for each I/O module present in the adapter’s
backplane. For example, the adapter plus 4 I/O modules uses a
chassis size of 5. The adapter stores this chassis size setting in
non-volatile storage.
When the adapter’s non-volatile chassis size does not match the actual
number of modules present on its backplane, the adapter does not
make any I/O connections and an error occurs, as shown in the
Module Properties dialog.
Adapter Replacement
It is important to note that during a connection request from the
controller, the chassis size setting for a 1734-AENT adapter 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 make any I/O connections
until it is configured with the appropriate chassis size.
Empty Slots and RIUP Situations
The POINT I/O system does not have the ability to detect an empty
terminal base. Because of this, 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 POINT I/O system construction and the removal
and reinsertion of modules.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
About the Adapter
1-3
• A correct POINT I/O system does not have any empty terminal
bases.
• After you cycle power, the adapter will not run any I/O until the
number of modules comprising the chassis equals the stored
chassis size.
– Because the adapter cannot detect empty terminal bases, 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.
– Actual module identification (such as, electronic keying) is
done when connection establishment requests are received
from the controller or controllers.
• A module removed under power does not disrupt operation of
the other I/O modules.
– When you remove a module, the adapter determines 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.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
1-4
About the Adapter
Cycle Power To a System For the First Time
When you power POINT I/O for the first time, the adapter must assign
addresses to every module in the backplane. POINT I/O modules all
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 POINT I/O system.

Use of the Common
Industrial Protocol (CIP)
The 1734-AENT 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 need to store it.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
1-6
About the Adapter
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/consumer networking model replaces the old
source/destination (master/slave) model. The producer/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) their data either upon a
change of state (COS) or periodically.
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.
The controller can also produce 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/consumer model.
Specify the Requested
Packet Interval (RPI)
The 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 communicating through it (using a rack-optimized
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 or the controller should send its 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.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
About the Adapter
Support of Rack-optimized
and Direct Connections
1-7
The 1734-AENT adapter supports both direct and rack-optimized
connections. A direct connection is a real-time data transfer link
between the controller and whatever module occupies the slot that
the configuration data references. Direct connection messaging occurs
at a cyclic rate specified by the RPI during configuration. A
rack-optimized connection is a grouping of data from more than one
I/O module into a single block of data sent over a single connection
at the same data rate.
Rack-optimized connections reduce the total number of connections
needed to transfer data when using many I/O modules in a system.
The following example illustrates the benefit of rack-optimized
connections.
Assume you set up a system that contains 8 digital I/O modules
interfaced to a 1734-AENT adapter. If you use direct connections to
transfer data to each of the these I/O modules, you need 8
connections to transfer all of the data, one to each of the 8 I/O
modules. If you use a rack-optimized connection to transfer the data,
you only need a single connection – the connection to the 1734-AENT
adapter.
IMPORTANT
Although rack-optimized connections offer an
efficient way to use resources, there are a few
limitations on their use:
• You can use only rack-optimized connections
to send data to and from digital I/O modules.
Analog or speciality I/O requires direct
connections.
• All data is sent at the same time as the RPI rate
of the 1734-AENT adapter.
See the EtherNet/IP Performance and Application Guide, publication
number ENET-AP001, for more information on connections.
Mix Rack-optimized 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 communicate at the rate of the RPI configured for
the 1734-AENT adapter. I/O modules configured for direct
communication communicate at their own set RPIs and ignore the
1734-AENT adapter’s RPI.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
1-8
About the Adapter
Before You Begin
To effectively use your adapter, note the following considerations.
Determine Compatibility
If using the adapter with a 1756-ENBT module or 1788-ENBT module,
use the following required firmware revisions for these bridge
modules:
• 1756-ENBT firmware revision 2.3 or later
• 1788-ENBT firmware revision 1.33 or later
If you use the BootP Utility to assign IP addresses to the adapter, use
revision 2.3.2 or later.
Understand Messaging
Class 3 (Explicit Message) requests through the 1734-AENT adapter to
a specific POINT I/O module may not always receive a response from
the I/O modules. In the case where the I/O module does not reply to
the request, the adapter responds with an error code indicating a
timout.
Establish I/O Connections
When you apply power to a POINT I/O system and establish I/O
connections, the outputs transition to the Idle state, applying Idle state
data before going to RUN mode. This occurs even when the controller
making the connection is already in RUN mode.
Configure Autobaud
The adapter cannot reconfigure an I/O module that you previously
configured to operate at a fixed communication rate. When you reuse
a POINT I/O module from another POINT I/O system, configure the
module to autobaud before using it with the adapter.

Configuration
Requirements
Before you can use your adapter, you must configure its IP address,
its subnet mask, and, optionally, gateway address. You can use the
Rockwell BootP utility, 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.
If you need to reset the adapter to factory defaults, see the Important
note about setting thumbwheels to the value 888.
9 9 9
IP Address
Ethernet Address (MAC)
IMPORTANT
If you set the thumbwheels on the adapter to the
value 888 and then power cycle the module, the
following will occur.
• The DHCP Enabled function is enabled (set to
True).
• The Ethernet link is negotiated automatically
(the Auto Negotiate function will be set to
True).
• The web server is enabled (the Disabled Web
Server function is disabled).
• The password for this page resets to the
factory default (the word password is the
factory default password).
Note the value of the switches before you enter
the 888 value, because you return the adapter to
those values once this process is complete.

Configure the Adapter for Your EtherNet/IP Network
3-3
If using the BootP/DHCP utility, you need to
know the Ethernet hardware address of your
adapter. Rockwell assigns each 1734-AENT
adapter a unique 48-bit hardware address at the
factory. The address is printed on a label on the
side of your 1734-AENT adapter as shown in the
figure. It consists of six hexadecimal digits
separated by colons. This address is fixed by the
hardware and cannot be changed.
IMPORTANT
If you change or replace the 1734-AENT adapter, you
must enter the new Ethernet hardware address of the
adapter when you configure the new adapter.
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
1734-AENT adapter) must have a unique IP address.
The IP address is 32 bits long and has a net 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.
Class A
0

Class B

You can distinguish the class of the IP address from the first integer in
its dotted-decimal IP address as follows:
Range of first integer
Class
Range of first integer
Class
0 …127
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 net ID. Each node on the
same network must have a different Host ID thus giving it a unique IP
address.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
3-4
Configure the Adapter for Your EtherNet/IP Network
IP addresses are written as four decimal integers (0 to 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
Network 1
128.1.0.2
G
C
B
128.2.0.1
128.2.0.3
128.2.0.2
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 net IDs are different). In order to
send data to A, B must have 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.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
Configure the Adapter for Your EtherNet/IP Network
3-5
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 host’s gateway must be
addressed using a net ID matching its own.
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 net 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 net ID.
Two bits of the Class B host ID are used to extend the net ID. Each
unique combination of bits in the part of the Host ID where subnet
mask bits are 1 specifies a different physical network.

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.

Configure the Adapter for Your EtherNet/IP Network
Set the Network Address
3-7
The adapter ships with the thumbwheel switches set to 999 and DHCP
enabled. You can set the network Internet Protocol (IP) address in
these ways:
• Use the thumbwheel switches located on the module.
• Use a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server, such
as Rockwell Automation BootP/DHCP.
• Retrieve the IP address from nonvolatile memory.
Network Address
Thumbwheel
Press either the + or buttons to change the
number.
43248
The adapter reads the thumbwheel switches only when you cycle
power to determine if the switches are set to a valid number. Press
either the + or - buttons to change the number.
Valid settings range from 001 to 254. When the switches are set to a
valid number, the adapter’s IP address will be 192.168.1.xxx (where
xxx represents the number set on the switches). The adapter’s subnet
mask will be 255.255.255.0 and the gateway address is set to 0.0.0.0.
The adapter will not have a host name assigned, or use any Domain
Name System when using the thumbwheel settings.
If the switches are set to an invalid number (such as 000 or a value
greater than 254), 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 will also assign other Transport Control
Protocol (TCP) parameters.
If DHCP is not enabled, the adapter will use the IP address (along
with other TCP configurable parameters) stored in nonvolatile
memory. The factory default switch setting is 999, and DHCP is
enabled.

Use the Rockwell
BootP/DHCP Utility
The Rockwell BootP/DHCP utility is a stand alone program that
incorporates the functionality of standard BootP software with a user
friendly graphical interface. It is located in the Utils directory on the
RSLogix5000 installation CD. The 1734-AENT adapter must have
DHCP enabled (factory default and the network address switches set
to an illegal value) to use the utility.
To configure your adapter using the BootP utility, perform the
following steps:
1. Run the BootP software.
In the BOOTP Request History panel you see the hardware
addresses of devices issuing BootP requests.
2. Double-click the hardware address of the device you want to
configure.
You see the New Entry dialog with the device’s Ethernet
Address (MAC).

3. Enter the IP Address you want to assign to the device, and click
OK.
The device is added to the Relation List, displaying the Ethernet
Address (MAC) and corresponding IP Address, Hostname, and
Description (if applicable).
When the address displays in the IP Address column in the
Request History section, it signifies that the IP address
assignment has been made.
4. To assign this configuration to the device, highlight the device in
the Relation List panel, and click the Disable BOOTP/DHCP
button.
When power is cycled to the device, it uses the configuration
you assigned and not issue a DHCP request.

5. To enable DHCP for a device with DHCP disabled, highlight the
device in the Relation List, and click the Enable DHCP button.
You must have an entry for the device in the Relation List panel
to re-enable DHCP.
Save the Relation List
You can save the Relation List to use later. To save the Relation List
perform the following steps:
1. Select Save As... from the File menu.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
Configure the Adapter for Your EtherNet/IP Network
3-11
You see the Save As dialog.
2. Select the folder you want to Save in.
3. Enter a File name for the Relation List (for example, control
system configuration), and clickclick Save.
You can leave the Save as type at the default setting: Bootp
Config Files (*.bpc).
You can then open the file containing the Relation List at a later
session.
Use DHCP Software to
Configure Your Adapter
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 1734-AENT 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.

Configure the Adapter for Your EtherNet/IP Network
Refer to the section Configure the 1734-AENT Adapter with Fixed IP
Address in this manual to configure the adapter with a fixed IP
address.
ATTENTION
To avoid unintended control, the 1734-AENT adapter
must be assigned a fixed IP address. The IP address
of this adapter should not be dynamically provided.
If a DHCP server is used, it must be configured to
assign a fixed IP address for your adapter.
Failure to observe this precaution may result in
unintended machine motion or loss of process
control.

Recover From an
Overloaded Adapter
Each POINT I/O connection established with the 1734-AENT adapter
consumes a portion of the microprocessor’s bandwidth. The amount
of bandwidth used by a connection depends on a number of
variables, including the requested packet interval (RPI), the number of
POINT I/O modules involved in the connection, and the rate of
change of the I/O.
The 1734-AENT adapter continuously monitors this bandwidth and
rejects requests for new connections when there is insufficient
bandwidth available to support the new connection.
The condition where the 1734-AENT adapter cannot support the
connection due to a limit of the microprocessor’s bandwidth is shown
in the following 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.

What This Chapter Contains
This chapter guides you through the steps required to configure your
1734 POINT I/O Ethernet adapter for both direct connection and rack
optimization using RSLogix 5000 software.
You can mix communication formats for different I/O modules
communicating through the same adapter. I/O modules set up to use
rack optimization communicate at the rate of the RPI configured for
the 1734-AENT adapter.
I/O modules configured for direct communication communicate at
their own set RPI and ignore the 1734-AENT adapter RPI. The
modules presented in this chapter have a configuration using RSLogix
5000 software, version 15. The chapter contains the following main
sections:

Set Up the Hardware
In this example, a ControlLogix chassis contains the Logix 5555
controller in slot 1 and a 1756-ENBT bridge module in slot 3. We
mounted the 1734-AENT 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 2, and a power supply (not shown).

IMPORTANT
The chassis size equals 1 for the adapter plus the
number of POINT I/O modules installed (physically
present on the POINT I/O backplane).
Comm Format choices include:
• None = the adapter makes a direct connection to each of the
modules referenced by the data.
• Rack optimization = digital I/O data is collected into a rack
image. This does not include analog or specialty I/O modules.
• Listen only - rack optimization = read or verify data only, but
does not control the modules (when you have multiple
controllers - one controller is used to control and the other
controllers are used to monitor).

• For RSLogix 5000 programming instructions, refer to RSLogix
5000 Getting Results, publication 9399-RLD300GR.
• 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-optimized
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-AENT adapter for
both rack-optimized 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)

Program Fault
Programming Fault Error bit - If an incomplete, incorrect, or
conflicting set of configuration parameters is sent to the module, the
Program Fault bit will be asserted and an error code will be placed in
the Programming Error Code word (assembly 6816). The module will
not enter a normal operational state. Bit definitions (decimal) for the
error codes are:
10
An invalid assembly was chosen for poll consumption (0, 105,
or 106 are valid).
9
The decimal point position is outside of the acceptable range.
8
Counter 0 window ON & OFF values are equal and not zero OR
Counter 0 window ON & OFF value is greater than Rollover.
7
A tie has been connected to an unprogrammed window.

A configuration was selected that requires the scalar and none
was programmed OR
Multiple scalars were selected.
5
The preset is out of range (Rollover).
4
A rollover of zero was programmed through PWM was not
selected OR

Appendix
D
Quick Start
What This Appendix
Contains
In this quick start, you learn how to use the 1734-AENT adapter with a
ControlLogix controller for EtherNet/IP systems.
IMPORTANT
ATTENTION
This quick start contains a simple set of steps and
reminders that will help you avoid errors when you
are configuring your POINT I/O system for and
EtherNet/IP network.
You must use series C POINT I/O modules with
the 1734-AENT adapter. Series A or B POINT I/O
modules will not work with this adapter.
Necessary Prerequisites
Before you begin this quick start, make sure the following conditions
are in place.
• The ControlLogix controller and RSLogix software version must
be version 11 or later.
• The 1756-ENBT module must be revision 2.3 or later.
• The 1734 POINT I/O modules must be series C (except for the
1734-232ASC modules, which can be series A).
• The recommended RPIs are being used: Digital = 10 ms or
higher, Analog and Specialty = 50 ms or higher.
• The 1734-AENT POINT I/O adapter is a child to a local
1756-ENBT module.

Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
D-2
Quick Start
Configure the Adapter
In the 1734-AENT Module Properties dialog, perform the following
steps.
1. Complete the Name field.
2. Enter the following address into the IP Address field:
192.168.1.42
You are setting the last digit, because the first three digits are set
for you as set by the push wheel switches on the adapter. The
push wheel switches should be set to 042.
3. From the Comm Format menu, choose None if you do not want
a rack-optimized connection, or choose Rack Optimization if
you want a rack-optimized connection.
4. For the Electronic Keying field, select Compatible Module.
5. Enter the Chassis Size.
Regarding chassis size, the POINT I/O adapter itself takes up a
count in the chassis. The default chassis size for the POINT I/O
is 1, which covers the adapter only and allows for no I/O. To
configure your POINTBus modules, set the chassis size to the
physical amount of your I/O modules plus one for the adapter;
otherwise, you get an error. For example, if you have six
modules in the chassis, you must set chassis to 6+1=7.
6. Enter the Slot.
For the adapter itself, the slot number is always 0 and cannot be
modified.
7. Click Finish.
Your I/O Configuration tree now looks similar to the following:
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006

Use this procedure to enter adapter properties.
1. Right-click the 1734-AENT adapter and select Properties.
The Module Properties dialog appears.
2. Click the Chassis Size tab.
Notice that the data under this tab is dimmed while offline. Use
the Chassis Size tab to send the module size from the General
tab to the module itself once you are online. Otherwise, you get
an error. We explore this later. For now, click OK to close this
dialog:
3. Right-click the POINT I/O adapter under I/O Configuration to
add a new module.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
D-4

4. Select the module from the list and click OK.
5. In the Module Properties dialog, enter the following information.
a. Name
b. Slot
c. Comm Format
d. Electronic Keying, choose Compatible Module to verify the
major revision C, because only series C modules support
EtherNet/IP.
e. Click Next on the bottom of the dialog.
f. Set the RPI to 10 ms for digital and 50 ms for analog or
specialty.
6. Click Finish.
Add Another Module Under the Adapter
Use this procedure to add another module under the adapter.
1. Right-click the POINT I/O adapter under I/O configuration to
add a new module.
Your second module is in slot 2.
2. Select the module from the Module Type list, and click OK.
3. In the Module Properties dialog, enter the following information:
a. Name
b. Slot
c. Comm Format
d. Electronic Keying, choose Compatible Module.
e. Click Next.
f. Set the RPI to 10 ms for digital and 50 ms for analog or
specialty.
4. Click Finish.
Continue to add modules to the adapter in this fashion until you
have added all of the POINT I/O modules connected to the
1734-AENT adapter to the I/O Configuration tree.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
Quick Start
Configure 1734 POINT I/O
Modules
D-5
For RSLogix 5000 software version 13 and earlier, configure your 1734
POINT I/O modules via the Controller Tags database, using the
following steps. For RSLogix 5000 software, versions 15 or later, the
preferred method for module configuration is to use the Module
Properties dialog for each POINT I/O module, as described in the
individual user manual for the module.
1. Double-click the Controller Tags in the project dialog.
Look at the bottom of the screen to make sure you are in the
Monitor Tags tab.
We are going to assume there is an analog input module
1734-IE2V, which resides in slot 6. We configure Channel 0 of
this module to operate over the range -10 to +10V dc.
2. Click the configuration tag remote_POINT_IO:3:C.
From here you can set the module’s configuration and alarms.
In this configuration dialog, you enter the values that would
correspond to the desired range. The range type default value
for a 1734-IE2V module is 2, which is equal to 0 to 10V dc.
3. Click the configuration tag for the module in slot 4,
remote_POINT_IO:3:Ch0RangeType.
4. Check the value in the tag
remote_POINT_IO:3:C.Ch0RangeType.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
D-6
Quick Start
It is set to 2, which is the default value. There are two settings
that this module supports:
• 2 = 0 to 10V dc
• 0 = -10 to +10V dc
5. Click the value 2 and change it to 0, which changes the voltage
range to -10 to +10V dc for channel 0.
Note the following:
• The controller sends the configuration data only when
connection is being established.
• Should you need to modify any of the tag values once you
change the tag, you need to access the updated information
and download it into the module. These are the ways to
download the updated configuration information into the
module.
– Ideally, you enter the correct code number in the Range Type
field at the same time that you add the I/O to the I/O
Configuration tree. You then download later.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
Quick Start
D-7
– If you downloaded the offline configuration into the module
and then realize that you must modify any of the module’s
configuration parameters, then the preferred way to make
these changes online is to go to the Module Connection tab
and inhibit the module, apply the changes, and then uninhibit
the module. Doing this breaks the connection, causing the
configuration information to be downloaded right after the
connection is made.
IMPORTANT
Switching the controller from Program to Run mode
does not change the module connection status and
does not re-send module configuration data.
We highly recommend that you use the
inhibit/uninhibit process and avoid power cycling.
6. Right-click the 1734-AENT adapter and select Properties.
7. Click the Connection tab.
You see the following message:
The module is faulted because, even though you set up the
adapters POINT I/O chassis size to the actual number of the
modules plus the adapter, the adapter still remembers the size of
1 (the factory default value) until you reset this size manually.
This option is available only online.
8. Click the Chassis Size tab.
9. Click the Set Chassis Size in Module button and set the chassis
size in the adapter.
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006
D-8
Quick Start
Remember to inhibit and unhibit the module for this to take
effect.
Now you can put your controller in Run mode, and the
connection should be successful.
IMPORTANT
Configure an Ethernet
Driver in RSLinx Software
The information found in the Controller Tag
Reference section of this user manual is also
available in the RSLogix 5000 online help file. Use
the Help file search function under the 1734 catalog
number that you are configuring and select the
Module Defined Data Types option. You see all of
the configurable parameters and associated values.
To configure an Ethernet driver in RSLinx software, launch RSLinx
software.
Launch RSLinx Software
Launching the RSLinx software enables you to configure the driver
you use to communicate with the ControlLogix controller.
1. Double-click the RSLinx icon on the Desktop to launch RSLinx
software.
2. Click the RSWho icon
Publication 1734-UM011C-EN-P - January 2006

D-9
The Rockwell Software RSLinx Gateway - [RSWho - 1] screen
appears.
TIP
The RSWho screen is actually RSLinx’s network
browser interface, which lets you view all of your
active network connections.
The left pane of this display is the Tree Control,
which shows networks and devices in a hierarchical
view. When a network or device is collapsed, as
indicated by the + sign, you can click the + sign or
double-click the network or device icon to expand
the view and begin browsing. When a network or
device is expanded, as indicated by the - sign, you
can click the - sign or double-click the network or

the RSWho display is the List Control, which is a
graphical representation of all of the devices present
on the network.
TIP
If there is a communication status error with a device
(for example, when a recognized device is
inadvertently unplugged), that device appears with a
red X, indicating that RSWho previously recognized
it, but now it cannot. You can choose to remove the
device from the RSWho display, or you can choose
to correct the communication error.
