Welcome to RSNetWorx for DeviceNet

RSNetWorx for DeviceNet is a 32-bit Windows application program that allows you to
configure DeviceNet devices. Using a graphical or spreadsheet representation of your
network, you can configure all devices on the network.
This chapter contains the following sections:

Quick Start steps
Features and benefits
The current release of RSNetWorx for DeviceNet contains the following features:
„
„
„
„
„
„
„
RSNetWorx now supports RSAssetSecurity™. RSAssetSecurity is intended to
improve the security of your automation system by limiting access to those with a
legitimate need. RSAssetSecurity 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
Automation Platform that installs with many products.
DeviceNet Tag Generator is supported. The DeviceNet Tag Generator lets you create
individual structured tags in RSLogix 5000 for each DeviceNet device. For more
information, read the Tag Generator Online Help available from Start > Programs
>Rockwell Software > RSLogix 5000 > DeviceNet Tag Generator.
1756-DNB/C (Major Revision 10) that supports larger ADR sizes is supported.
This version allows you to change the 1756-DNB Major revision 7 configuration
while the scanner is in run mode.
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 CD.
We have changed support of Flex I/O (1793, 1794, 1797) on DeviceNet to use an EDS
based approach. Although the user interface is different from the one previously
presented: the date in your .DNT files will be automatically converted to the new
format needed for the EDS based approach; the capabilities are a superset of what you
could do with older method; the new method allows modules to be added to the
software by adding a new EDS file for the module; and the user interface is consistent
with the EDS based method used for most devices on DeviceNet.
A Windows-based point and click interface that allows you to easily configure
DeviceNet devices.

Understanding DeviceNet concepts
The DeviceNet network is a control area network that logically connects input/output
(I/O) devices to processors via DeviceNet scanners rather than directly to discrete I/O
modules located in processor racks. Scanners reduce the burden placed on processors by
handling all the I/O device management.
Each DeviceNet network supports up to 64 nodes. The data rate and node address of all
the devices connected to the network are user-configurable. Both the signal and the power
wires are bundled in the same cable. Several different types of connectors are available.
The signal lines are terminated at each end to insure that the line remains balanced.
The topology of a DeviceNet network can be a drop line configuration (devices are
connected to the network by drop lines and network taps), a trunk line configuration
(devices are connected in a daisy chain fashion), or any combination of these
configurations. For example, several devices could be daisy-chained together and then
connected to the network via a network tap.
The DeviceNet specification is maintained by the Open DeviceNet Vendor’s Association,
Inc. (ODVA). ODVA is an independent organization of product suppliers. For more
information about ODVA products and services, visit their web site at
http://www.odva.org.

Before you start
Before you can add a device to a DeviceNet network, it may need to be commissioned.
This means that the node address and the data rate must be programmed into the device.
Node commissioning, which is also called device commissioning, is the process of
assigning a node address and a data rate to a device for use on a DeviceNet network. The
node address and data rate are referred to as the network parameters.
Most DeviceNet devices are factory commissioned with default values per the DeviceNet
specification. Usually, the node address is set to 63 and the data rate is set to 125K baud.
As long as the factory default parameters do not conflict with those of other devices
already on the network, you can connect the new device to the network and then use the
Node Commissioning tool within the RSNetWorx for DeviceNet software to change the
node address and data rate. If the data rate conflicts, use a separate network to commission
the device or a local connection between the device and the PC.
Some devices do not support software-based node commissioning. For those devices, the
product will have some alternative way (for example, thumbwheel switches) to set the
address and data rate. See the specific device’s documentation for more information.
Step 1 – Create a new configuration and browse for an online network
The first step in using RSNetWorx for DeviceNet in the online mode is to create a new
DeviceNet configuration (by selecting File > New). Once you create the configuration, an
empty network displays in the Configuration view.
Next, go online and select a communications driver using the RSWho browse utility. A
graphical representation of the network appears in the Configuration view. If you would
like to see a tabular view of the information, select the Spreadsheet tab or the
Master/Slave tab.
Note: At various times, you may want to save the work you have completed on your network
configuration. To save a configuration file (*.dnt), click File > Save.
Step 2 – Upload and configure the online DeviceNet network
After creating your configuration and going online, you must upload the configuration of
each device and the entire DeviceNet network. Once your configuration has been
uploaded, you can then edit your network properties. Editing network properties includes
entering a network name and description.

„
configuring general device properties
editing and monitoring device parameters
In addition you can also view I/O message data and the contents of the EDS file.
As you configure each device, you may need to choose to upload from the device or
download to the device before changing its configuration. This reconciliation process
keeps the online device and the current configuration synchronized. When you are in
online mode, the configuration displayed for the device represents the configuration in the
online device.
Step 4 – Configure the DeviceNet scanner
When you have completed your device configuration(s), you can then configure the
scanners on your DeviceNet network. To configure a scanner, select a scanner in the
configuration view and choose Device > Properties from the main menu. Configuring
your scanner includes advanced tasks like configuring a scanlist (a list of the devices that
you want the scanner to scan), and mapping device input and output data. In addition, you
may also want to configure general device properties, specify module parameters
(including scan-time related items), or view a summary of the scanner configuration.
Step 5 – Save your network configuration
The final step is to save your DeviceNet configuration information to a file. To save your
configuration file (*.dnt), select File > Save. Your DeviceNet devices are now configured
and ready to use.
You can use the RSNetWorx for DeviceNet software to further customize your DeviceNet
configuration. For example, you can re-assign node addresses, modify a device’s
configuration, etc. And, when you are not using these applications to configure your
network, you can use RSNetWorx for DeviceNet software to monitor and troubleshoot the
devices on your network. For information on how to accomplish these tasks, see the
comprehensive online help.
Note: If you have not purchased the required activations for RSNetWorx, the advanced
capabilities described in steps 6 and 7 will not be available. For more information on these
advanced capabilities, contact your local Rockwell Automation sales office or see the following
topics in the RSNetWorx online help: RSNetWorx MD, RSNetWorx MD Service Monitor,

Step 6 - Diagnose and troubleshoot your online network
Once you save your configuration, you can diagnose the network and determine the status
of all of the devices on that network. If any of the devices are exhibiting diagnostics
problems, you can troubleshoot those devices and return your network to proper operating
condition.
Step 7 - Schedule network diagnostics
After diagnosing and troubleshooting your online network, you can schedule diagnostics
to occur for each network that has an associated offline configuration file (*.dnt)
developed in RSNetWorx, allowing you to support an unattended, background mode of
diagnostic operation. Further, via the RSNetWorx MD Service Monitor, you can start,
stop, and establish the startup mode for each network diagnostic schedule that you have
configured.
Offline mode
Step 1 – Create a new configuration and describe your network topology
The first step in using RSNetWorx for DeviceNet in the offline mode is to create a new
DeviceNet configuration (by selecting File > New). Once you create the configuration, an
empty network displays in the Configuration view.
Next, describe your network topology by dragging a device or scanner from the Hardware
view and dropping it in the network configuration. Repeat this process until you have
defined your entire DeviceNet network in the software. If you would like to see a tabular
view of the information, select the Spreadsheet tab or the Master/Slave tab.

EDS-based devices
RSNetWorx for DeviceNet relies on an electronic data sheets (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 DeviceNet software, you can configure its target connection
configuration (attributes) and how it will communicate with other devices on the
DeviceNet network. Although the procedure for configuring a device is basically the same
for all devices, each device will have 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 DeviceNet. The EDS files, which are provided by the
device manufacturers, contain configuration and identification information for the
devices.
RSNetWorx for DeviceNet software can access only those devices that have been
registered. You must use the EDS 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.
25
• • • • •
RSNETWORX FOR DEVICENET GETTING RESULTS GUIDE
Although you get a large number of electronic data sheet (EDS) files with the RSNetWorx
for DeviceNet software, there may be a time when you need to acquire/create additional
EDS files. The most common ways of getting these files are to:
„
„
„
obtain them on distribution diskettes that accompany the devices.
download them from DeviceNet 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)
„
http://www.ab.com/drives/1305index.html (Allen-Bradley Standard Drive
Products site)
„
http://www.odva.org (Open DeviceNet Vendor’s Association site)
create the EDS file using the EDS Wizard.
DeviceNet node commissioning tool
The DeviceNet node commissioning tool lets you commission, that is, set the node
address and the data rate parameters of, devices that are either connected:
„
„
to a DeviceNet network, or
via a point-to-point connection.
Commissioning devices on a DeviceNet network
Before you can add any node to a live DeviceNet network, it must be commissioned. This
means that a node address and a data rate must be programmed into the device. Most
devices are preset with a node address, which is usually set to 63, and a data rate, which is
usually set to 125K baud. These default preset values will need to be changed to meet
your application needs. Once a device has been commissioned and attached to a network,
you can use the RSNetWorx for DeviceNet node commissioning tool to edit the node
address that was set previously.
Note: Some devices do not permit software setting of the node address or data rate. Refer to the
device documentation for specific information.
Exercise caution while editing node addresses when on a network. When you apply a new node
address, it immediately overwrites the node address data in the device currently specified. If you
re-assign node addresses, first determine the order in which this needs to be done so that all the
devices will still have unique node addresses throughout the address assigning process. If your
scanner supports Automatic Device Replacement (ADR), your system may automatically perform
this commissioning.
For example, if two of the devices on your network are a photoelectric sensor and a hand
controller and you accidentally change the node address of the hand controller to be the
26
3 • Placeholder
same as that of the photoelectric sensor, then the hand controller will no longer have a
unique address, which means that it will not be able to communicate on the network. If
you cannot access a device, because you have used its node address for another device,
you will have to remove it from the network, recommission it, then reinstall it on the
network. For information on how to recover a faulted device, see the Faulted Address
Recovery wizard in this chapter.
• • • • •
3 • ADVANCED CONCEPTS
Commissioning a device via a point-to-point connection
When the baud rate of a device does not match the DeviceNet network (for example,
when adding a new device [out of the box] or when moving a device from one DeviceNet
network to another) and the dip switches are not provided, it may be necessary to establish
a point-to-point connection to that device and prepare it for integration onto your existing
DeviceNet network. Using the Node Commissioning Tool, you can establish a point-topoint connection to a device and change the node address and/or the data rate parameters
to match your existing DeviceNet network.
You should not change the data rate of devices while they are connected to a network; otherwise,
erratic operation may result. We recommend that if you need to change the data rate of a device,
that you complete the following:
1. Remove it from the network.
2. Establish a point-to-point connection between the PC, which hosts the RSNetWorx for
DeviceNet software, and the target device.
3. Recommission the device.
4. Reconnect the device to the network.
Faulted Address Recovery Wizard
The Faulted Address Recovery wizard allows you to recover select faulted devices with
duplicate node addresses on your DeviceNet network. In addition, you can detect faulted
devices on your DeviceNet network and "flash" the LEDs on those devices to locate them
in your application.
Notes: The faulted address recovery function is not supported by all devices. For more
information, consult your hardware documentation or contact your hardware vendor.
The Faulted Address Recovery feature requires RSLinx 2.20, Service Pack 1 or later.

Class Instance Editor
The Class Instance Editor is a tool that allows you to send data to, and read data from, a
DeviceNet device that is not otherwise configurable with RSNetWorx for DeviceNet.
Using the Class Instance Editor, you can 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 available
on the printed data sheet accompanying the device.
Note: 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

Activation
Rockwell Software’s products are copy-protected. Only a computer with access to the
activation key can run the software. The key is located in an activation file, which is
originally located on the Master disk supplied with the RSNetWorx for DeviceNet
product. The activation file contains one activation key per product. Each key contains
one or more licenses depending on how many copies of the product you have purchased.
Note: Store your Master disk in a safe place. If your activation becomes damaged, the Master
disk may be the only means to run your software in an emergency.
During the setup process, the setup program gives you the opportunity to move the
activation file from the Master disk to the root directory of the drive on which you’re
installing the software.
When you launch RSNetWorx for DeviceNet, the software first checks your local hard
drives, then network hard drives, and finally local floppy drives for activation. If the
system fails to detect either the activation file or the Master disk, you will receive an error
message stating that activation is required to run the RSNetWorx for DeviceNet software;
the software will run in Demo mode.
Note: Systems attached to extensive networks can take quite a while to search for activation files
on all available drives. You can use the CHECKDRIVES environment variable to specify and/or
limit the drives your software checks for activation files and to specify the order in which they are
checked. Refer to the activation utilities online help file by selecting Help > Copy Protection.
Protecting your activation files
Certain anti-virus software packages, such as Norton Anti-virus, can corrupt the activation files.
Configure your anti-virus software to avoid checking the files EVRSI.SYS and 386SWAP.PAR.
To avoid damaging your activation files, do not perform the following operations with
activation files on the hard drive.
„
„
„
Restore from backup
Upgrade the operating system
Compress or uncompress the hard drive
Defragmentation utilities will not harm activation files.
Before running any type of utility that may modify the structure or organization of the
hard drive, remove activation from the hard drive by completing the following steps:
37

RSNETWORX FOR DEVICENET GETTING RESULTS GUIDE
1. Use the Move Activation utility (EvMove) to move activation files from the hard
drive to an activation disk.
Do not use the Move Activation utility if Rockwell Software products are currently
running. Ensure all software programs are closed before initiating the EvMove utility.
Run EvMove by selecting Start > Programs > Rockwell Software > Utilities >
Move Activation.
2. Perform the hard disk operation.
3. Move the activation files back to the hard drive.
You must use the move utility, EvMove, to move activation files. Attempts to copy,
move or e-mail an activation file by other means will damage the file.
Activating RSNetWorx for DeviceNet
Depending on your needs, you can activate RSNetWorx for DeviceNet from any of the
following:
Hard drive. The activation key resides on your computer’s hard disk. Use this method if
you will typically use RSNetWorx for DeviceNet only on one computer. This is the
default method if you activate RSNetWorx for DeviceNet during installation. To run
RSNetWorx for DeviceNet on a different computer, move the activation key back to the
Master disk, and then to the hard drive of the new computer.
Diskette drive. The activation key resides on a floppy disk (activation disk). Use this
method if you will typically use RSNetWorx for DeviceNet on more than one computer,
for example, if you want to run RSNetWorx for DeviceNet on a desktop computer at some
times and a portable computer at others.
Network drive. The activation keys reside on a network drive. Use this method if you
have purchased multiple licenses of the software and want several users to be able to
activate the software over a network. Refer to the online help for instructions on moving
activation to a network drive (refer to the “Finding more information about activation”
section in this chapter to access online help).
Running the activation utilities
The utilities for moving and resetting activation are called EvMove and Reset
respectively. Reset is used when an activation file has been damaged. The
EVMOVE.EXE and RESET.EXE files are located on your hard drive (located in
C:\Program Files\Rockwell Software\RSUtil if you accepted the default directory location
38
Finding more information about activation
The online help (COPYPROT.HLP) provides more extensive information on activation
including subjects such as:

without running either RSNetWorx for DeviceNet or the activation utilities. From the
Windows Start menu, select Programs > Rockwell Software > Utilities > Activation
Help.
Some common questions
Following are some common problems that people encounter with activation and their
solutions.
My activation files were damaged. What should I do?
If you have lost the activation because the activation file is damaged, you need to reset
activation. Follow the Reset Codes instructions on the Rockwell Software Technical
Support web page, or call the technical support telephone number. The web page and
telephone number are both listed on the inside front cover of this guide.
If you cannot obtain a reset code immediately, follow these instructions to use the Master
disk to activate the software as a temporary solution.
To use the Master disk to activate software:

RSNETWORX FOR DEVICENET GETTING RESULTS GUIDE
1. Set the KEYDISK environment variable to TRUE. (Please refer to the online help by
selecting Start > Program Files > Utilities > Activation Help for more information).
2. Insert your Master disk in the floppy drive.
3. Run your software as usual. Your software will find the activation on the Master disk.
I accidentally deleted the software directory on my hard drive.
Do I need to call Rockwell Software for replacement activation
files?
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 uninstall the software using the Control Panel’s
Add/Remove Programs option, then reinstall the software, but do not move the activation
when given the opportunity.
Why can’t I move activation to a new floppy disk on a
Windows NT system?
It has to do with a disk modification that NT does not allow. If you have access to a
Windows 95 or 98 machine, you can create a disk that will work under NT. Format a
floppy and move any activation file to it under Windows 95 or 98. (You can move the
activation back off the disk if you want to keep it where it was.) Then take that disk to
your Windows NT machine and move the activation to it.

Security
This first release of RSAssetSecurity™ is intended to improve the security of your
automation system by limiting access to those with a legitimate need. RSAssetSecurity
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 Automation Platform that installs with many products.
Although security services are always present wherever FactoryTalk is installed, you must
purchase and install activations in order to add more than 10 user accounts to a Network
Directory and use security services across a networked system on multiple computers.
Activations are not required to add 10 or fewer user accounts to a Network Directory. In
addition, activations are not required to add user accounts to a Local Directory; security
services are freely available when used in a stand-alone system on a single computer.
For more information on how to use security services, refer to RSAssetSecurity’s Online
help.
How do I set up security in RSNetWorx?
RSNetWorx 7.00.00 (CPR 7) supports RSAssetSecurity. RSAssetSecurity™ is intended

Glossary
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.
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.
DeviceNet network — A topology for industrial automation networks.
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:
„
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.

C • Welcome
Activation disk — Any disk (floppy or hard) containing an activation file. An activation
disk can be used to activate the software. This is different from a key disk (Master Disk)
in that at least one license of the software must be available on the activation disk to
activate the software.
• • • • •
RSNETWORX FOR DEVICENET GETTING RESULTS GUIDE
„
Secure your FactoryTalk-enabled system with RSAssetSecurity™ security services.
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.
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.
„
„
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.
Key disk — A floppy disk that can be used to activate the software even if that disk
contains zero licenses. The Master Disk is the only key disk. This differs from an
activation disk in that an activation disk must contain at least one license.
License — Authorization to use a specified number of instances of software. A product’s
activation key contains a license for each copy of the software you have purchased. For
example, if you bought seven copies of RSLogix 5, then the RSLogix 5 key on the Master
Disk contains seven “licenses” of RSLogix 5. You can move the activation file for
RSLogix 5 to seven different computers.
Master disk — This disk is supplied with the software. It contains a database of keys in
an “activation file” that enables the software to run. Be sure to store your Master Disk in a
safe place. If your activation file becomes damaged, the only way you can run your
software (until the activation is reset) is with your Master Disk.
RSNetWorx configuration — A collection of user-defined parameters for networks.
