Overview
This manual is designed to provide you with enough information to get your
ControlLogix Gateway system up and running. Use this manual if you are
knowledgeable about ControlLogix Gateway products, but need
information about integrating the products in a system.
The information provided is an overview; for more detailed instructions
about particular tasks, see the appropriate product documentation. We have
provided a listing of related documentation in the preface.
About the Applications
This manual presents six example applications in which you initiate
communication as follows:
• from one DH+ network to another DH+ network using a single
communication card
• from one DH+ network to another DH+ network using two
communication cards
• from a DH+ network to an Ethernet network
• from one ControlNet network to another ControlNet network
• from one DH+ network to another DH+ network across an Ethernet
network
• from a ControlNet network to a DH+ network across an Ethernet
network

Overview
Understanding How Routing
Tables Are Used
1-3
In some of the example applications, you will need to use routing tables to
route messages between the PLC-5/40C processors if you include a
1756-DHRIO module in the path.
Important: You only need to create a routing table if the message path
includes a 1756-DHRIO module. Ethernet and ControlNet
modules do not require routing tables; however, if a message
path contains a mix of Ethernet, ControlNet, and DH+ network
segments, you must assign each of the network segments in the
path (including ControlNet and Ethernet network segments) a
link number.
Routing tables are stored in 1756-DHRIO modules. Each table contains all
of the “links” (i.e., network segments) in the message path from the source
of the message to the destination of the message. You assign a unique link
number to each of the network segments in the path. Link numbers range
from 1-199.
Important: Do not confuse link numbers with module port numbers or
node numbers. You configure link numbers using software
when you configure the system.These numbers appear only in
1756-DHRIO routing tables. Module port numbers are fixed for
ControlLogix Gateway modules as follows:
1756-DHRIO Modules:
Port Number:
Port:
1
backplane
2
channel A
3
channel B
1756-CNB Modules
Port Number:
Port:
1
backplane
2
either of the two ControlNet media ports
1756-ENET Modules
Port Number:
Port:
1
backplane
2
either of the two Ethernet media ports
In the example applications, you set module node numbers by using the
hardware switches on the 1756-CNB or -CNBR and on the 1756-DHRIO
modules.

Set Up the Hardware
In this chapter, you’ll set up a basic ControlLogix Gateway system that
contains all of the main components you’ll need to complete each example
application. In the following chapters, you’ll modify the connections within
this system to initiate various types of communication.
Here’s an example of the type of system you’ll set up.

Install the Ethernet Card
Verify that your PC has an Ethernet card installed. If it does not, install any
commercial variety. Make sure the Ethernet card has a unique IP address to
prevent conflicts with other hardware. Verify also that you have assigned a
subnet address. Then connect the Ethernet card to a hub. See page 3-2 for
more details.

ATTENTION: When you insert or remove a
module while backplane power is applied, an
electrical arc may occur. An electrical arc can
cause personal injury or property damage by:
– sending an erroneous signal to your system’s
actuators causing unintended machine
motion or loss of process control.
– causing an explosion in a hazardous
environment.
Repeated electrical arcing causes excessive wear
to contacts on both the module and its mating
connector. Worn contacts may create electrical
resistance that can affect module operation.

In this example, you communicate with a PLC-5/40C processor on a DH+
network via an Ethernet gateway.
Important: To establish communication between the PC workstation and
the PLC-5/40C via ethernet, you must first configure the
1756-ENET module. The configuration can be sent to the
1756-ENET module over another network, such as ControlNet.
In this example, you will do the configuration over the DH+
network.

Configure the Communication Modules
Start the configuration software:
a. From the Windows NT Start menu, select Programs.
b. Select ControlLogix Gateway > 1756gtwy.
Configure the Ethernet module:
a. From the File menu in the configuration software, select Browse
Network. RSLinx starts.
An IP Address is an Ethernet node’s
network address and denotes the network
where the 1756-ENET module is located.
Before you begin, check the IP
address. Make sure your entry is in the
form xxx.xxx.xxx.yyy, where each xxx is a
number between 0-255 and yyy is a
number between 0-254.
b. Select the AB_KT_1 Data Highway Plus driver and drill down the
backplane.
c. Double-click on the Ethernet module.
d. Select the Port Configuration tab and enter the following configuration:
A Subnet Mask identifies the bits of the
internet address that correspond to the
network and subnetwork portions of the
address. Before you begin, retrieve your
subnet mask. Make sure your entry is in
the form xxx.xxx.xxx.yyy, where each xxx
is a number between 0-255 and yyy is a
number between 0-254.
A gateway is a shared connection
between two networks. It consists of
hardware and software which provides
protocol conversions. An Ethernet
Gateway Address is the IP address of the
Ethernet gateway you want the
1756-ENET module to use. Before you
begin, retrieve your Ethernet gateway
address, if you are using one. Make sure
your entry is in the form xxx.xxx.xxx.yyy,
where each xxx is a number between
0-255 and yyy is a number between
0-254.
Bootp (Bootstrap protocol) is used to boot
diskless nodes, such as 1756-ENET. The
Bootp server supplies the IP address,
subnet mask, and Ethernet gateway. In
this example you are providing the IP
address, so make sure Bootp is not
enabled.
Make sure this box is not checked.
Enter this configuration:
IP Address:

Initiate ControlNet to DH+ Communication
With an Ethernet Backbone
What You Need To Do
In this application, you will establish communication from one PLC-5/40C
on a ControlNet network to another PLC-5/40C on a DH+ network,
bridging across ControlNet, Ethernet, and DH+ networks.
Change your existing system to the following configuration:

Verify the Module Hardware
?
Check each module’s hardware to ensure it is what you expect. Specifically,
verify the following:
✓ Are they all powered?
✓ Are the switch settings correct? Was the module correctly
oriented when you set the switches so you didn’t mix up any
left to right ordering?
✓ Are the “OK” LEDs all green (blinking or solid)? Do the
displays indicate any errors?
✓ Are they in the correct slot location? (ControlLogix slots are
numbered from the left starting with zero.)
✓ Is the wiring correct? Are the channel indicators correct?
Publication 1756-6.5.13 - September 1999
11-2
Troubleshoot the System
Verify the Communication
Links
1. Perform an RSWho to determine which devices are on line.
2. Examine the diagnostic counters. If you notice CRC errors, they might
indicate noise or intermittent connection problems.
3. Verify that each link is properly terminated.
Verify the Routing Tables
Compare your routing table with those shown in the example applications.
Do they look similar? If they do not, try the following:
1. Verify the paths in the routing tables, in both forward and reverse
directions.
✓ Do the paths go far enough to reach the destination?
✓ Are the paths complete?
✓ Do the paths include the link ID for the local port?
✓ Are all of the node numbers and slot assignments correct?
2. Verify the link IDs in the source MSG instruction, in each of the
1756-DHRIO modules, and in the destination’s channel configuration.
If All Else Fails. . .
1. Verify the channel configuration.
2. Check the MSG instruction. Ensure that the parameters are correct.
Examine the status bits to verify that the instruction is actually trying to
send a message.
3. Examine the error codes in the device sending the message. Keep the
following in mind:
• “local link timeout” indicates that the PLC processor cannot find the
first bridge
• “application timeout” often indicates a problem in the return route
• “D0” indicates that the first bridge is not correctly configured or that
it has other problems in trying to reach its destination
4. Examine the diagnostic counters. Specifically, look at the “requests sent”
and “replies received” counters in the device sending the message.
Compare these with the values in the “requests received” and “replies
sent” counters in the destination device.
