Compact logix control net to OPC UA adapter

When the post says to “add a Control logix gateway”, do they mean that the tags will need to be read into the Control Logix or is there a way to navigate through the gateway to the other devices to pull tags?

That would seem like a lot of traffic on the controlnet, so they mean just whatever is on the control logix will get pulled in right?

Sorry to ask such simple questions. I don’t want to make any painful or expensive mistakes.

The link about the connection paths did not work for me.
So I think maybe if I had that, it would make more sense to me.

Can’t read a compact logix control net system

Anyone have a better option than this adapter?

controlnet to OPC UA
450 bytes
5Mb baud rate
Requires setting the tags that are desired to pass through it though.

I wanted to see what it said though. It was in one of the similar posts.
Thought maybe I could get a solution there.

A ControlLogix chassis that has an Ethernet/IP module and a ControlNet module is sufficient for Ignition to pass through to anything else on the ControlNet side. You don’t even need a processor in that first chassis, just the two comm modules.

When connecting from Ignition, give the IP address of the Ethernet/IP module. In the connection path, put 1 CC 2 NN 1 PP, where “CC” is the slot of the controlnet module paired with that Ethernet/IP module, “NN” is the ControlNet node of the target, and “PP” is the processor slot number in the target.

Thanks very much
