Communicating with Allen-Bradley Compactlogix 5380 PLC over Ethernet IP
I'm trying to Communicate Compactlogix 5380 PLC to Mango over Ethernet IP. I'm using abeip driver to establish the connection. But I am not sure if I was able to connect the PLC successfully because of few reasons:
- I'm getting "Connection timed out" in the event logs.
- The Data Points shows "Active source point has no value message" for some and for others it has "?" being displayed. looks like some form of data is being received.
My questions are:
- Is there a tagging format that I need to use?
- Is there a detailed user manual available for the 'abeip driver'?
Apart from this setup, I also tried to connect to Mango via MODBUS TCP but found out that Mango cannot be configured as a server from an old forum. Does anyone know if Mango can now be used as MODBUS server in the new version?
Please let me know if you need more information.
