Ethernet/IP (Ethernet Industrial Protocol) is a network communication standard capable of handling large amounts of data at speeds of 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps, and at up to 1500 bytes per packet. The specification uses an open protocol at the application layer. It is especially popular for control applications.
This course has been designed with practicality in mind. At the end of this course, you will know how Ethernet/IP devices represent data in memory and the types of messaging that they use to exchange data. You will also perform practical exercises using simulation software, allowing you to get first hand experience in configuring Ethernet/IP devices for communications. Essentially, you will have a new practical skill in the field of industrial communications and networking.
Specifically, in this course, you will learn:
- How Ethernet/IP devices represent data in memory.
- Ethernet/IP network messaging types – Explicit and Implicit.
- Network services.
- Configuration of devices for Explicit messaging.
- Configuration of devices for Implicit messaging.
- Understanding network topology and client – server operation.
- Building an Implicit and Explicit scanner application using .NET.
- and much more …
