NX PLC with EtherCat Branching - GX-JC06
kdobsontn posted a topic in NJ Series / Sysmac StudioHello all, I am looking into creating a system where I have an NX102 in a main panel, and numerous satellite panels (up to 20) with EtherCat Slaves which would then have daisy-chained EtherCat slaves. Essentially, the main panel would need a GX-JC06 to allow branching out, but this only has 6 ports. 1 of them would be used to connect to the master (NX102), but would I be able to connect one GX-JC06 to another? I highly doubt the GX-JC06 behaves like a typical router, but I can't find any documentation about creating more than 5 branches. Thanks, K

Ethernet/IP bus line topology to ring.
Jiggadoo posted a topic in Allen Bradley / Rockwell AutomationI have an Ethernet/IP bus and system including Ethernet/IP devices with CPU 1756-L81ES ControlLogix. PLC is connected to the switch. Bus is built from the switch as a line. Can I connect the last device on the bus back to switch again? In thes case bus will be ring. Do I get problems with connection it this way. Switch is Stratix 2500, which is lightly managed switch. I believe it will increase the traffic in the bus.
MRP ring status on HMI ??
Dan.b posted a topic in SiemensHi I've got a medium sized MRP system and would like to display the same style topology that you see in TIA Portal on a HMI for the operator / engineers, Thanks Dan
one network ring? (PLC, VOIP, CCTV)
Dan.b posted a topic in General Topics - The LoungeHello 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
