I want to add my Ethernet/IP adapter device to Micrologix 1400 PLC configuration & do communication of both through RSlogix500.
Is there any document available for RSlogix 500 procedure for this communication?
I was easily able to do it with Compactlogix PLC through RSlogix 5000 software.
searching for RSlogix500 steps to move further.
The micrologix 1400 does not support IO messaging which is what I think you are trying to do. If you can talk to the device with a normal message instruction, you can use that.
In general, I believe you can't add Ethernet/IP devices to the tree in a MicroLogix system. We've added drives to a MicroLogix 1400 before but had to use explicit messaging to get the information back and forth (via the MSG instruction in the ladder code). Your Ethernet/IP device should have instructions explaining how to do that.
What are you trying to add?
You need to use MSG instruction for your Micrologix 1400 to be able to communicate with other devices through ethernet network. There are 3 types of messaging supported by Micrologix 1400 that at least your device should be complied.
1. PLC-5/SLC-500 messaging:
Will be used if you want to connect your Micrologix 1400 to PLC-5, SLC-500 or Micrologix family
2. CIP messaging:
Will be used if you want to connect your micrologix 1400 to Controllogix, conpactlogix, powerflex drive or 3rd party devices that support CIP protocol
3. Modbus TCP messaging:
Will be used if you want to connect your micrologix 1400 to devices that support Modbus TCP.
Please inform us what type of device that you want to connect to your micrologix 1400 for us to be able to assist you further
To my knowledge you will need to use a gateway, such as the Anybus X-gateway Ethernet/IP scanner-to-Modbus TCP server. See link below.
My 2 cents
