Ok guys, this is more a networking question involving a Stratix 5700 managed switch and 5 machines. The five machines all have set IP addresses from the OEM that cannot be changed. The manufacturer has them set in the program to maintain that IP ,so if it sees the IP change it will change it back. With that being said all Five machines have the exact same IP configuration and I cannot change it without contacting the manufacturer and getting them to change it or sell me the program so i can change it. both options will costs entirely too much in my opinion. With that being said my only goal is to read tags from the PLC on each machine. Is there anyway to set each port on that Stratix switch where i can communicate with each machine individually without causing them to have IP address conflicts with the other machines that have the same IP address. I hope I explained my question well enough. Thank you in advance for any help on this issue.
Hello all, i'm looking at installing a completely new network for our PLC system, using a ring topology. at the same time i would like to incorporate the IP cameras and VOIP into the same network. each system is on a different sub net, PLC = x.x.1.x, Cameras= x.x.2.x, VOIP= x.x.3.x estimated camera traffic will be 25 Mbps, PLC 10 Mbps, VOIP no more than 1 Mbps switches would be capable of 100 Mbps question: managed or un-managed switches? if it is possible to use un-managed without affecting operations then this would be a massive cost saving please only comment if you have practical experience implementing this many thanks Dan
