Why does the Advantys ETB not allow an Ethernet IP connection?

Published date: 29 November 2018

Title
Ethernet/IP connection to an Advantys ETB island.

Issue
Advantys ETB does not allow an Ethernet IP connection from the AB PLC.
 
Product Line
Modicon ETB

Environment
Allen Bradley RSLogix 5000
 
Cause
The "Use Unicast Connection over EtherNet/IP" checkbox was enabled.
 
Resolution
  1. The solution is to clear the checkbox on the “Connection” tab of the Generic Ethernet Module configuration for the ETB module. Apparently, in RSLogix 5000 v20, the “Use Unicast Connection over EtherNet/IP” box got moved from the General tab to the Connection tab.
