The SMVector AC Drive operates on an EtherNet/IP network with the addition of a simple plug-in communication module. Other network protocols are also available as option modules including CANopen, DeviceNet, Profibus and Modbus RS-485. As a member of the CIP family, EtherNet/IP can utilize the same set of pre-defined common objects, thus making communication between devices from different manufacturers much easier. Lenze-AC Tech worked with Allen-Bradley engineers to ensure complete product compatibility. EtherNet/IP supports numerous nodes, can be used on a single point connection for configuration and control and permits devices to send and receive messages simultaneously.
