Great, we now have a Do-more Deice that will manage the hardware for us. We didn’t add any I/O to the system and since we didn’t create a new heap item, there’s nothing to look at in the memory configuration. To talk to the Soft Starter via Explicit Ether Net/IP messaging, we just drop an Explicit messaging instruction on a rung and fill in the blanks.We just talk to it and it handles all the low level messaging, buffer management, handshaking, and timing, etc. We want to use the new Soft Starter Do-more Device we just created and the Soft Starter is at this IP address.First , to run the starter via Ether Net/IP you have to set this Network control bit to a one. This little triangle also reminds me this instruction is triggered on an edge. It’s the exact same thing so I’ll just copy this instruction and paste it down here.So we just copy these numbers over to here, class 41, instance 1, attribute 5 and we want to set that on the starter. The only difference is we want to write to attribute 3 now.The Do-more is a client making requests of the SR55 soft starter which is the server, so we don’t need to setup a server on the Do-more.
The first thing you see is a list of all the things you can monitor and control on the SR55 Soft Starter via Ether Net/IP. Looks like Ether Net/IP coverage starts on page 5-9.
