CIG University III How to select which network or networks ?
NetLinx Offers Flexible Options EtherNet/IP DeviceNet ControlNet EtherNet/IP DeviceNet EtherNet/IP ControlNet DeviceNet Mix and Match to fit your application! DeviceNetControlNetEtherNet/IP Application No. 1 Application No. 2 Application No. 3 Application No. 4 Application No. 5 Application No. 6
Network Positioning EtherNet/IP Past/Present: Link to MES/ERP, Used for Programming, Controller to HMI, Some Controller to Controller, Present/Future: Present functionality, Controller to HMI, Controller to Controller Communications, and I/O. Backbone for lower- level networks. ControlNet Past/Present: Backbone, I/O, Controller to Controller, Controller to HMI, Programming, Information Messaging Present/Future: High-performance, robust, secure network primarily for I/O and interlocking. Backbone for lower-level networks. DeviceNet Past/Present: Simple distributed I/O devices, HMI, and 3rd Party devices supporting configuration and diagnostics Present/Future: Present functionality and make it easier to user while providing lower node / installation / maintenance cost
Strengths of DeviceNet Lower Acquisition and Installation Cost –Reduction in plant wiring (eliminates hardwiring of I/O) –Lower installation, start-up, and maintenance times Network Attributes –Data flow is governed by the Producer/Consumer model –Ability to link smart factory floor devices together –Ability to bridge to higher level networks –Superior device level diagnostics –Device Plug and Play capabilities - add or remove nodes on the fly –Optimized to handle small amounts of data 8 bytes per message supports message fragmentation for larger data sizes) Media Options –Passive bus media: nodes can enter and leave without affecting the network –Sealed (IP67) and unsealed (IP65) media –Low cost flat media
Strengths of ControlNet High Speed Determinism –Deterministic data transfer - know when the data will arrive (Scheduled services) –Repeatable data transfer - transmission times are consistent as devices enter and leave the network Redundancy –Redundant media is available –Processor redundancy PLC-5 Hot Backup ControlLogix Processor Redundancy Industrial Hardened Physical Media –High noise immunity (coaxial and fiber optic cabling) –Intrinsically-safe media and products (Flex Ex, fiber optic repeaters) –Sealed (IP67) media currently being developed Passive Media –Nodes can enter and leave without affecting the network –Trunkline topology
Strengths of EtherNet/IP Highly efficient data transfer –Increased baud rates (10Mb, 100Mb), use of switches (instead of hubs), full duplex data transmission to minimize effect of message collisions, and isolation from the office Ethernet network Use of commercial off the shelf products and technology –Common set of installation and support tools –Well established network standard, acceptance rate should be favorable –Can take advantage of web browsing services in the products Media Options –Active bus media: supports star network topologies –High noise immunity (fiber optic cabling) –Extend bus length with multiple switches (copper and fiber) –Sealed (IP67) media - emerging technology (Consortia lead by RA)
General Network Selection Guidelines EtherNet/IP – more complex devices and larger I/O count blocks and racks where a combination of medium to high performance I/O and a large amount of messaging is required There is no absolute answer! DeviceNet – simple distributed devices and small I/O count blocks installed along side electrical/mechanical equipment ControlNet – more complex devices and larger I/O count blocks and racks where highly deterministic I/O performance with some messaging is required
From the Internet to DeviceNet From the Internet to DeviceNet EtherNet/IP Information Discrete Device Automation and Control Process Device NetLinx Architecture - Summary Based on open networking standards Global multi-vendor support Utilizes the Producer/Consumer communication model Consistent set of services that are media independent Open connectivity throughout the manufacturing enterprise ControlNet DeviceNet
CIG University III Additional Material
OPC DX Industry-standard set of interfaces that provides interoperable data exchange via server-to-server communications across Ethernet networks –Extension of the existing data access (OPC DA) specification –Enables server-to-server data exchange during run-time. Defines a set of interfaces that can be used to remotely configure and manage the connections maintained by each OPC DX server –Server connections are remotely configured –Can be monitored for performance and diagnostics In addition to AND independent of any real-time application protocol - if any - that may be supported by the Ethernet TCP/IP network(s).
ControlLogix OPCOPC -NB-NB OPCOPC OPC DX Configuration Tool ControlNet DeviceNet Vendor X PLC CIP Messaging OPC Data Access OPC DX OPC DX provides for data exchange between high-end controllers - from different vendors Note: Initial offering for CLx module will be OPC only. For CLx-to-CLx CIP communications, a 1756-ENBT module would be required in each CLx chassis. OPC DX provides configuration of and interfaces for data exchange in a multi-vendor architecture
