eBook: E40666

The PLC EtherNet eBook curriculum adds to the Allen Bradley ControlLogix PLC Troubleshooting Learning System to teach the fundamentals and troubleshooting of industrial communications networks using EtherNet/IP. These fundamentals include: basic PLC operation and programming, motor control, event sequencing, I/O interfacing and testing, process control, and material transfer. EtherNet/IP has become very popular as an industrial communications network because of its high data transfer speed, flexibility of communication on both the enterprise level and the automation and control level, and by offering a choice of vendors when purchasing equipment.

What are Common Symptoms of an EtherNet Network Failure?

EtherNet/IP networks are highly reliable, providing the communications needed for 24/7-production facilities. Failures are rare, but because of the wise-spread nature of networks, they can be a challenge to troubleshoot. Network failures are frequently discovered while troubleshooting a controller problem. For example, the operator complains that a motor is not running at the correct speed. The troubleshooter determines the motor speed setpoint has not be received from another controller and suspects a network problem.

There are three general symptoms of a communications network failure:

  • Data is transferred with errors
  • Data transfer is intermittent
  • Data is not being transferred
