view I/O data and configuration data for those devices that have EDS files that support
this functionality (online only)
display all connection information for all connections to/from a given device
including all connections in scanners that are in the configuration
configure scanners that adhere to the open EtherNet/IP specification for scanners,
define scanlist entries for certain scanners, and map scanner memory onto the network
and network data into the scanner memory (via the Scanlist Configuration Tool (SCT)
that is bundled with RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP)
leverage the connection information to diagnose the health of the connections, and
thus the health of the devices that originate and receive those connections

Quick Start steps
Features and benefits
RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP has the following features:

Support for Reduced Heartbeat feature of RSLogix5000 V16. The numbers on the
Device Usage Properties dialog box in EtherNet/IP 8.0 will reflect the effect that
Reduced Heartbeat calculations, from RSLogix 5000 V16, will have on your device's
usage.
The Reduced Heartbeat feature helps in preserving bandwidth in large network
installations by reducing the rate at which heartbeat is sent from the Consumer to the
Producer device. Heartbeat is the name given to the way a Consumer device informs a
Producer device of its presence.

Support for Unicast feature of RSLogix5000 V16. The numbers on the Device Usage
Properties dialog box in EtherNet/IP will reflect the effect that Unicast calculations,
from RSLogix 5000 V16, will have on your device's usage.
In Unicast the Producer device sends individual packets to each Consumer device.

Support for FactoryTalk Activation.
RSNetWorx supports FactoryTalk Security. FactoryTalk Security is intended to
improve the security of your automation system by limiting access to only those with
a legitimate need. FactoryTalk Security authenticates user identities and authorizes
user requests to access a FactoryTalk-enabled system. These security services are fully
integrated into the FactoryTalk Directory and are included as part of the FactoryTalk
Services Platform that installs with many products.
Device usages view displays usage percentages for factors such as minimum and
maximum CPU. and connection usage (when your device’s EDS file contains capacity
information) or raw transmission data information (when your device’s EDS file does
not contain capacity information). When edits are enabled, you will get to see both
current and pending device usage information.
Embedded EDS is supported. With this functionality, you can now change the state of
your device from unknown to known by uploading and registering its EDS, instead of
obtaining the EDS file from an external website or a DVD.
A Windows-based point and click interface that allows you to easily configure
EtherNet/IP networks.
Use of RSLinx Classic communication services, which allows you to browse online
through various networks, devices, bridges, etc., to choose the network you want to
view or edit.
The ability to edit configurations either online or offline.
Simple and complete network upload/download. You can upload a configuration
directly from the network or download a configuration to the online network. When
you upload or download a configuration, the scanlist for the open scanners is
transferred.
The Scanlist Configuration Tool configures both I/O and peer-to-peer data addresses.
It also supports target devices for Rockwell Automation and third-party devices via
EtherNet/IP standard Electronic Data Sheet (EDS) files.
Reports generated in HTML format.
Comprehensive context-sensitive online help, including additional information and
troubleshooting hints on any message that appears in the Message View.
The ability to interconnect several network configurations for navigation.
Quickly detect and resolve conditions that arise when initially commissioning a
system, minimizing initial start-up times and costs.
Debug and correct network/device problems, thereby reducing network downtimes
and related costs.
Detect preventive maintenance needs within the devices on your network, thereby
preventing system downtimes.

Understanding EtherNet/IP concepts
Finally, you finish creating the configuration by defining connections between the devices
at IP addresses/host names on the network. To do this, you determine which data is to be
consumed by each scanner, and you determine where in each scanner’s data table this data
is placed. You may also choose to determine which scanner will maintain the
configuration for each adapter device. After you have defined these parameters, you use
the Scanlist Configuration Tool (for integrated scanners) or RSLogix 5000 (for Rockwell
Automation’s Logix processors) to enter the connection into your configuration for each
of your EtherNet/IP scanners.
For many devices, you can also use the Scanlist Configuration Tool to configure how
outputs are set in the event of a fault, such as loss of communication to the controlling
scanner. Depending on the information contained in a device’s EDS file, you may be able
to configure other device parameters. These parameters may be found on the connection’s
property page from the Configuration Settings tab and/or the Advanced Settings tab
depending on the device or module for which you are setting the parameters.
When you are online, enable edits, and save your configuration in RSNetWorx for
EtherNet/IP version 4.0 or later, the software displays connections that are created in
Studio 5000 Logix Designer.

You begin configuring your EtherNet/IP network by determining how many devices will
be connected to your network, what EtherNet topology will be used, and what addressing
method will be used (IP addressing, Host name addressing, or a combination of both).
Each device must be assigned a unique IP address/host name. You may allow the
addresses to be automatically assigned, or choose to assign a unique address manually.

RSNETWORX FOR ETHERNET/IP GETTING RESULTS GUIDE
Quick Start steps
The fastest way to configure your EtherNet/IP network is to specify an EtherNet/IP driver
in RSLinx Classic and let the RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP software browse your online
network for EtherNet/IP devices and automatically add them into your configuration; and
then, let the Scanlist Configuration Tool automatically configure connections to your
target devices. You can follow this same procedure for configuring your network in the
offline mode by manually dragging and dropping devices from your Hardware tab into
your network configuration.
For some devices, you need additional RSLogix software to complete your network
configuration (for example, if you have ControlLogix processors on your network, then
you must use Studio 5000 Logix Designer to complete your configuration).
There is no offline mode when working with ControlLogix processors. Also, for more
information on using Studio 5000 Logix Designer and ControlLogix processors, refer to the
online help for the Scanlist Configuration Tool.
This section walks you through the tasks you will need to perform to use RSNetWorx for
EtherNet/IP software in both the online and offline modes. To remain focused on the highlevel nature of each task and on the flow of these tasks, the following steps do not include
the step-by-step procedure for accomplishing each task. When you are ready to use
RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP software, you should follow the detailed procedures found in
the Quick Start, which is located in the RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP online help.
To access the software’s quick start, select Help > Quick Start from the RSNetWorx for
EtherNet/IP window. To see information about any control on the RSNetWorx for
EtherNet/IP or Scanlist Configuration Tool windows, remember to use the What’s This?

EtherNet/IP scanners, use the Scanlist Configuration Tool. Once you open the Scanlist
Configuration Tool, you can either insert connections for the scanner IP addresses/host
names on your network manually, or you can use the auto insert feature within the Scanlist
Configuration Tool to automatically insert the scanlist entries.
Step 3 - Define a connection target and save your schedule
To provide data from the scanner to other devices on the network, you must define a
connection target. You can define the connection target device for the scanner IP
address/host name on your network manually. After defining your connection targets, the
final step is to save your configuration and exit the Scanlist Configuration Tool.

EDS library
Class Instance Editor
EDS-based devices
RSNetworx for EtherNet/IPTM relies on an electronic data sheet (EDS) for configuring
devices. An electronic data sheet is an ASCII file that is created by the manufacturer and
supplied with the device.
As long as the EDS file for the device you want to configure is registered with the
RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP software, you can configure its target connection
configuration (attributes) and how it will communicate with other devices on the
EtherNet/IP network. Although the procedure for configuring a device is basically the
same for all devices, each device has a unique set of properties.
EDS library
The electronic data sheet (EDS) library is a collection of EDS files that have been
registered with RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP. The EDS files, which are provided by the
device manufacturers, contain configuration and identification information for the
devices.
RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP software can access only those devices that have been
registered. You must use the EDS Registry Wizard for registering EDS files for unknown
devices, or if you have updated EDS files to install. To access the EDS Wizard, select
Tools > EDS Wizard.

download them from EtherNet/IP sites on the world wide web. You can either select
the device in the network configuration, right-click the mouse and select Re-register
Device, and click Download EDS File in the EDS Wizard or access one of the
following world wide web sites from which EDS files are available:

http://www.ab.com/networks/eds (Allen-Bradley technical support site)
download them from a different manufacturer’s site.
Class Instance Editor
The Class Instance Editor is a tool that allows you to send data to, and read data from, an
EtherNet/IP device that is not otherwise configurable with RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP.
Using the Class Instance Editor, you can either enter raw data and download it to the
device, or read the data from the device.
We do not recommend configuring devices with the Class Instance Editor unless you are
instructed to do so by technical support personnel for the hardware product.
To use the editor, you will need to know the service code, class, instance, and attribute by
their appropriate hexadecimal codes within the device. This information may be on the
printed data sheet accompanying the device.
For further information about configuring a device with the Class Instance Editor, contact
the manufacturer of the device. For more information on how to enter data into the Class
Instance Editor, contact Rockwell Software technical support.

Activation
RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP supports only FactoryTalk activation. If you are a new user,
you will need to activate your software using FactoryTalk Activation because RSNetWorx
no longer ships with a physical master disk for activating software.
Activate RSNetWorx with FactoryTalk Activation
RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP supports the following types of activation:
Node-locked activation
This type of activation can be either locked to a particular piece of hardware, such as an
EtherNet card or a harddisk of a stand-alone computer, or to a hardware dongle.
Depending upon the kind of device (stand-alone computer or hardware dongle) you want
to activate, you can purchase either

Local “node-locked” activation: This kind of activation activates software only on a
single computer. If the activation file is copied to another computer, the software will
not run on that other computer, or

Mobile “node-locked” activation: This kind of activation is locked to hardware
dongle. A dongle is a security or copy protection device that must be connected to the
computer while the program runs. The activation files can be copied to multiple
computers, but the software activates only on the computer where the dongle is
connected.
Concurrent activation
This type of activation allows multiple computers across a network to use Rockwell
Software products at the same time. There are two kinds of concurrent activations:


Floating activations: activations that “float” from an activation server to any computer
that needs them.
Borrowed activations: activations that are retrieved from a server for a specific period
of time before expiring and returning automatically to the pool of available activations
on the server.
How to activate RSNetWorx
You can activate your copy of RSNetWorx on the Software Activation dialog box
towards the end of installation. If you skipped the activation during installation, activate
RSNetWorx using the FactoryTalk Activation Manager installed during the installation
process.

Grace period
In RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP v9.00.00 (CPR 9 Service Release 1) and later, the software
supports a seven day activation grace period when a valid activation is not found. During
grace period:




If RSNetWorx is started and an activation key is not present, the software shall enter
grace period and run with full functionality.
Once RSNetWorx has entered grace period, the software shall check for an activation
key every four hours. If the activation is not found, a message will be generated to
FactoryTalk Diagnostics.
RSNetWorx can be started an unlimited number of times while in grace period and be
able to run with full functionality. If the grace period ends and a valid activation has
not been found, RSNetWorx shall run in Demo mode.
While RSNetWorx is running, the software cannot change modes. RSNetWorx can
only change to Demo mode when the software is restarted and/or grace period has
already expired.
If RSNetWorx is unable to successfully obtain valid activations (for example, a network
failure occurs), the software will attempt run in grace period for up to seven days.
Some common questions
Following are some common problems that people encounter with activation and their
solutions.
MY
ACTIVATION FILES WERE DAMAGED.
WHAT
SHOULD

DRIVE.
No. Deleting the program files does not delete your activation. The activation files are not
stored in the program directory; they are located in the root directory. Your activation files
will not be lost unless you format the hard drive, tamper with hidden files in the root
directory, or perform certain other hard drive operations (refer to the “Protecting your
activation files” section in this chapter for more information).
To get the software running again, simply reinstall the software, but do not move the
activation when given the opportunity.

Glossary
Activation key — Activation files contain a database of activation keys. Each key is
particular to a certain product and must be accessible on a local or remote drive for that
product to run.
Bridge — A multi-port device that connects network segments that use different physical
media. Bridges also monitor network traffic, building and maintaining internal tables that
list the port on which each Ethernet address resides. When a bridge receives a packet
destined for a particular address, the bridge transmits the packet again only on the port at
which the device resides. Each port on a bridge represents a separate collision domain.
Connection — An open, logically binding communication path between two devices on a
EtherNet/IP network. Connections can be either point to point or multicast connection.
Connection ID — An identifier assigned to a particular connection between producers
and consumers that specifies select application information.
Connection type — The connection type indicates the data ownership of a node. It
defines the rule for how the connection entry controls outputs to the rack, module, or
device. The following are standard connection types:


Exclusive Owner - specifies an independent connection where a single device
controls the output states in the target device. If you have an existing Exclusive Owner
connection to a target device, you cannot specify another Exclusive Owner or
Redundant connection to that same target device.
Input Only - specifies an independent connection where a device receives inputs
from the target device and sends configuration data to the network. An Input Only
connection does not send outputs; it only receives inputs. You can specify multiple
Input Only connections to the target device from different originators.
53
D • Welcome
Activation file — A hidden, read-only, system file that “activates” a Rockwell Software
product. The software will run only if your system can find the correct activation file.
• • • • •
RSNETWORX FOR ETHERNET/IP GETTING RESULTS GUIDE

Listen Only - specifies a dependent connection where a device receives inputs from
the target device, but does not send configuration data with the network. A Listen
Only connection only functions properly when another non-Listen Only connection
exists to the same target device. A Listen Only connection does not send outputs; it
only receives inputs. You can specify multiple Listen Only connections to the target
device from different originators.
All Listen Only connections will be terminated when all non-Listen Only connections are
terminated.
Consumer — A node that receives data from a producer on a EtherNet/IP link.
Cut-through switching — Cut-through switching starts sending packets as soon as they
enter a switch and their destination address is read. The entire frame is not received before
a switch begins forwarding it to the destination port. This reduces transmission latency
between ports, but it can propagate bad packets and broadcast storms to the destination
port.
EtherNet/IP network — An industrial automation network standard that is sponsored by
EtherNet/IP International.
FactoryTalk is a manufacturing information platform that integrates plant-wide control
systems and connects the enterprise with the production facility.
The FactoryTalk Automation Platform:

provides common services (such as diagnostic messages and access to real-time data)
and shares plant resources (such as tags and graphic displays) throughout a production
facility

allows defining plant-floor resources once, and then allows simultaneous access to
those resources across product boundaries

supports centralized security services
FactoryTalk Administration Console — Part of the FactoryTalk Automation Platform,
FactoryTalk Administration Console is an optional, stand-alone tool that allows you to:
54

Create and configure application, area, and data server elements in the FactoryTalk
Directory.

Back up and restore an entire directory or an individual application.

Set up redundancy for OPC data servers.

Configure client computers to recognize the location of a FactoryTalk Directory
Server computer.

Configure options for routing and logging diagnostic messages.

View system-wide diagnostic messages.

Configure system-wide policy settings.

Secure your FactoryTalk-enabled system with FactoryTalk Security™ services.
• • • • •
Glossary
Run FactoryTalk Administration Console from the Windows Start menu: Start >
Programs > Rockwell Software > FactoryTalk Administration Console.
FactoryTalk Directory — FactoryTalk Directory provides a central lookup service for
software products participating in a FactoryTalk-enabled automation system.

Local Directory — all project information and participating software products are
located on a single computer, and the FactoryTalk-enabled system cannot be shared
across a network or accessed remotely.

Network Directory — organizes project information from multiple software products
across multiple computers on a network.
Some FactoryTalk-enabled products require a Network directory, others require only a
Local directory, and some require that both directories be configured.
Gateway — The term gateway has many different meanings. For example: a device that
performs protocol conversion between different types of networks or applications. Such
gateway function at the transport layer and above. They perform complete conversions
from one protocol to another rather than simply supporting one protocol from within
another. Sometimes router can implement such gateway functions; and a device that acts
as a go-between connecting two or more networks that use the same protocols. In this
case, the gateway functions as an entry/exit point to the network. Transport protocol
conversion may not be required, but some form of processing is typically performed.
Hub — A hub is a common wiring point for star-topology networks. Hubs have multiple
ports to attach the different cable runs. Some hubs include electronics to generate and time
the signal between each hub port. Others act as signal splitters, similar to the multi-tap
cable-TV splitters you might use on your antenna coax. Some route the network signals to
each active device in series, while other hubs distribute received signals out all ports
simultaneously.
55
D • Placeholder
The FactoryTalk Automation Platform includes two separate directories: a Local
Directory and a Network Directory. Either directory, or both directories, can be
configured on the same computer. Project information, including security settings, cannot
be shared between a Local Directory and Network Directory, even if both directories are
configured on the same computer. Create and configure application, area, and data server
elements in the FactoryTalk Directory.

Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping — This protocol constrains
the flooding of IP multicast traffic by dynamically configuring the switch interfaces so
that multicast traffic is forwarded only to those interfaces associated with IP multicast
devices.
Multicast connection — A connection made from one node to many nodes. Multi-cast
connections allow multiple consumer nodes the ability to receive data from a single
producer node.
Node — A node is a EtherNet/IP address. When a device is added to the network, it is
assigned a node address..
Offline Configuration File — In RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP, the offline configuration
file (*.enet) contains network configuration information (including scanlist data, device
and chassis definitions, rack size and density, etc.). When online, the download operation
applies all of the offline configuration information to the online network and the upload
operation applies all of the network configuration information obtained from the online
network to the offline configuration file.
Point-to-point connection — A connection made between two nodes only.
Producer — A node that is responsible for transmitting data on a EtherNet/IP link.
Requested Packet Interval — The requested packet interval (RPI) value is determined
by how often you want a particular piece of I/O or scheduled peer-to-peer data to be
transmitted within the scheduled bandwidth of the NUI.
Router — A router is a device that forwards traffic between networks based on the
network layer information in the data and on the routing tables that it maintains. The
router builds up a logical picture of the overall network in its routing tables, and then uses
this information to choose the best path for forwarding network traffic.
Scanlist Configuration Tool (SCT) — A program that maps processor memory onto the
network and network data into processor memory. SCTs are scanner-specific; therefore, a
unique SCT is required for each type of scanner.
Scanner — A EtherNet/IP device that is a connection originator.
Scanner class device — A device that initiates connections and contains a scanlist. Refer
to the RSNetWorx for EtherNet/IP online tutorial for more information.
Scanner signature — Indicates a hexadecimal value, unique to the open scanner, that is
assigned to scanner devices that originate scheduled connections. This value is stored in
the open scanner and in the offline configuration, and is used to determine if the offline
configuration is synchronized.
56
• • • • •
Glossary
Segment — A section of a local area network (LAN) that is used by a particular
workgroup or department and separated from the rest of the LAN by a bridge, router, or
switch. Networks are divided into multiple segments for security and to improve traffic
flow by filtering out packets that are not destined for the segment.
Switch — A switch evolved from the bridge. Like traditional bridges, switches build and
maintain internal tables that map Ethernet addresses to a port. A packet received on one
port is rapidly switched to the appropriate output port (typically within microseconds).
Each port on the switch is its own collision domain, so collisions between devices
attached to the switch do not occur.
There are two basic methods of switching: cut-through and store-and-forward.
Store and forward switch — Store-and-forward switching buffers incoming packets in
memory until they are fully received and a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) is performed.
This reduces bad packets and collisions that can adversely effect the overall performance
of the segment. However, the buffering adds latency to the processing time. The latency
increases in proportion to the frame size.
Cut-through switch — Cut-through switching starts sending packets as soon as they
enter a switch and their destination address is read. The entire frame is not received before
a switch begins forwarding it to the destination port. This reduces transmission latency
between ports, but it can propagate bad packets and broadcast storms to the destination
port.
57
D • Placeholder
A switch segments a network into many parallel dedicated lines to produce a contentionless, scalable architecture. The switch establishes a direct line of communication between
two ports and maintains multiple simultaneous links between various ports. The switch
uses addressing information in each Ethernet frame to forward data only to the port
connected to the destination device. The switch manages network traffic by reducing
media sharing since the traffic is directed only to the segment for which it is destined.
