We recently setup an Allen Bradley PowerMonitor 5000 and I’m trying to link it to Ignition over E-IP. We have successfully setup the meter and can communicate via the web based interface included with the meter. I was able to get the device “connected” in the configuration screen using the Allen Bradley Logix Driver. However, when I try to look for tags in the OPC browser, nothing shows up when I try to expand the tab for the meter.
Here’s an excerpt from the manual:
All PowerMonitor 5000 units are equipped with a native EtherNet/IP 100 BaseT
communication port. This section describes EtherNet/IP communication and
the available protocols to use for your application.
The Ethernet communication port allows communication with your power
monitor by using a local-area-network (LAN). The Ethernet port can be used to
view the unit’s internal webpage.
The PowerMonitor 5000 unit communicates through Ethernet or EtherNet/IP
drivers in RSLinx® Classic software, and through explicit messages from Rockwell
Automation controllers communicating via an EtherNet/IP network.
Does anybody have any idea what advanced settings I would need to change in Ignition or if this will even work at all?
thanks for any help!
