Ethernet and the V570


Recommended Posts

Hi

 I've have completed an aplication using a V570 controller. I am planning on using a 2nd V570 as a remote panel. I have installed ethernet cards in both of the V570's and planned to interconnect using the ethernet cards through a simple 5 port wired switch.(I have very little experince with comms of this nature) Which I had thought would also allow me to conncect my PC also and connect to both panels.

 I was working on just trying establish comms with the primary V570 and could not even get it to ping. Would I be better off using a router instead?

 I watched all of the ethernet webinar videos and think I'm setup correctly but am unable to ping.

I would apreciate any advice, help or hints anyone might have.

Thanks

 Thanks for your reply.

After your post and finding out that the switch wasn't the cause of my issue I dug into it again. What I found was that my computer's IP address was not correct. Once I change to a static IP address to the same scheme that I was using in the V570 I was able to ping the V570. After that it was just a matter of playing with some setting.

 Thanks again for the help I appreciate it.

I do this exact thing all the time and have no problems whatsoever using MODBUS IP over Ethernet and a digital switch.

 

Make sure your PC and the PLCs are all on the same subnet to minimize complications. PC firewalls can also be an issue, so I would start with IP addresses in the range of 192.168.1.xxx until everything is running smoothly, then change later if you need to.
