This publication tells you how to install the EN2DN. Ethernet-to-DeviceNet linking device and use RSNetWorx™ for DeviceNet software to configure it. Added product picture for the EN2DNR and the EN2DNROM linking devices. Made two different “install” chapters, one for each linking device. The EN2DN EtherNet/IP-to-DeviceNet linking device lets you seamlessly connect your information- or control-level networks with your device-level.

Rockwell Automation EN2DN Ethernet-to-DeviceNet Linking Device • User guide • Download PDF for free and without registration!. PSFTEN2DN. The Ethernet to DeviceNet bridge for RSNetWorx for. Devicenet linking device is a DIN-rail mountable bridge. EN2DN. (None *). X. L35E. X X. (* Left table will use the DNB in "Child" slot 3 for the same purpose. ).
In the Configure Driver window that appears, enter the IP address of the linking device. Click Close. Click Next. Click Next or Finish for the remaining option dialog boxes. In the left pane, click the RSLinx Ethernet driver you added previously. In the left pane, click DeviceNet, DeviceNet. When asked to upload from the network, click OK to perform a single pass browse.
You see the Node Commissioning dialog box. On the Node Commissioning dialog box, click Browse. You see the Device Selection dialog box. You see the EN2DN linking device in the left pane. Click on the EN2DN linking device in the left pane. It appears in the right pane. If a warning text box asking you if you wish to continue appears, click Yes.
Enter the desired MAC address or data rate, then click Apply. If only the communication rate is changed you must cycle power to the linking device before the new communication rate will take effect. By default, the linking device has Autobaud enabled.
If a warning text box appears, click Yes.
You see the Class Instance Editor dialog box. Click Execute. You may also have to cycle power to the slave devices. If the linking device is the only master on the DeviceNet network, do not enable autobaud.
Automatic communication detection requires traffic on the network. There is typically no traffic until the master establishes connections. The Input table size cannot be larger than bytes. The Output table size cannot be larger than bytes. Either table may be empty 0 bytes.
Refer to RSNetWorx online help for complete details. Wait for browsing to complete. Wait for the device information to be uploaded from the network. Double-click the linking device icon to bring up the Module Description dialog box.
Several tabs appear on the top of the dialog box. Click the Scanlist tab.
In the informational text box that appears, click Upload. The dialog box shows two columns. On the left is a list of available devices that may be added to the scan list. On the right is a list of devices that are configured in the scan list. Check AutoMap on Add. Select the Input tab. The Input mapping dialog box is displayed. The top portion of this dialog box gives a list of the devices in the scan list from which the linking device receives input data.
The bottom shows the location in the Input table where the data will be placed for each device. This shows the format of the Input table of the linking device. Select the Output tab. The Output mapping dialog box is displayed. The top portion of this dialog box gives a list of the devices in the scan list to which the linking device will send output data.
The bottom shows the location in the Output table where the data will be placed for each device. This shows the format of the Output table of the linking device. Click Apply, and click Yes to download the scanlist to the linking device. TIP The linking device starts scanning as soon as it finds entries in its scanlist. However, in Idle mode, output data will not be sent to the devices. You see the New Controller dialog box. From the Type pull-down menu, choose the controller type.
I bet you're thinking "well 27 is less than 32, so that's great! Is there a Panelview Plus communicating with it? Is there CIP messaging over ethernet in the program? When you fill up processor connections, things stop working. Panelview buttons don't work, and it won't let you go online with the program. From what I'm seeing, you're going to need at minimum a Control Logix processor they're available with upwards of connections if not more.
You could conceivably get by with the top-end L36ERM Compact which allows 48 connections , but even that would be too close for comfort for my taste. Take a wild guess how I know all this.
Hint: It wasn't by reading it in a manual, and it has something to do with my sig quote. I'm going to take a wild guess and say these are series drives? I'm only saying that because I've seen so much of that out there. In fact at my last job I just replaced several s with Powerflex 4. Personally, I would check out the PowerFlex series that just came out.
Ethernet is built-in on-board. No extra modules to buy unless you want dual ports.
And they can be programmed with a USB cable. Ken's idea is a good one, but there are some fatal flaws. First, if these are indeed or older series drives, you're still running an obsolete part and new replacements will be hard to find if not very expensive.
When it works, it works well, but when it goes down, troubleshooting is a massive pain in the rear. I've seen Devicenet networks go down just from slightly moving one connector, yet other times you can pull the thing right out of the socket and everyone else will work just fine, and plugging the cable back in brings the node right back up again.
Keeping your old drives and network might save some time and money now, but later on you'll have to spend that money anyway plus the extra time to re-write your program. The way I see it, you have a choice between just updating everything now and biting the bullet budget-wise, or wait until some time in the near future when a drive goes down, you can't find any replacements, and you have to re-engineer the system in a rush.
I prefer doing things once over doing them over doesn't always happen that way, but it's what I prefer. Adam June 3rd, , PM Thank you all for your kind replay, I will keep you posted on the project. It will work over the interconnect cable up to 3 chassis or 30 modules.
