App Release: Ethernet/IP Connector V3.0.1


Dear Industrial Edge Enthusiast,


I am happy to announce that Ethernet/IP Connector 3.0.1 was released on Industrial Edge Marketplace. The new version is based on the Connectivity Suite framework and can support up to 30k tags per second and 20 PLC connections.  


We recommend to use the databus to make data available in IIH Essentials and IIH Semantics. 


Breaking Changes:

  1. New version will be like any other update version, so already configured tags will be available but user needs to open it in Common Configurator and deploy again

  2. To keep publishing to the data bus, the Databus Gateway has to be installed. All tags, which should be published there, need to have the flag "Publish on Databus" set to true. 

  3. Topics published in Databus will be changed to timeseries model

Topic in 2.1: ie/d/j/simatic/v1/eip1/dp/r/<connection-name>/default​
Topic in 3.0: ie/d/j/simatic/v1/eip1/dp/r/<connection-name>/<acquisition-cycle>



Hi Guillaume.

you can able to connect compactLogix to the EIP connector, And based on location of your Ethernet module, you need to assign the position for example if it’s on 1st position then the "communicationPath":"1,0", it should be like this.





I can't success to connect a CompactLogix to the EIP Connector.

Although the ControlLogix works.

Can you tell me which configuration I have to fill in for this PLC, especially the Communication Path ?

FYI, I have the log message "The PLCXX connection is up. Device is in stopped state. No Process data will be available".



Dear Guillaume, when you have a simple (non-cascaded) setup, the connection path can be as follows: Communication Path : 1,0 1- Back Plane 0- Slot Number Please let us know, if you need further help. Regards Tobias
