ETHERNET/IP TO ALLEN BRADLEY REMOTE I/O OR DATA HIGHWAY PLUS DH+ GATEWAY CONVERTER
AN-X2-AB-DHRIO The EtherNet/IP to Remote I/O or Data Highway Plus DH+ Gateway

The EtherNet/IP to Remote I/O or Data Highway Plus DH+ (AN-X2-AB-DHRIO) Gateway is designed to help customers initiate a phased migration approach to replacing or upgrading legacy Remote I/O, HMI’s or Drives. The AN-X2-AB-DHRIO gateway has multiple operating modes that are selected during initial configuration and are described below.

This mode acts as a bridge between an EtherNet/IP and a DH+ Data Highway Plus network.

Programming terminals, and/or processors on an EtherNet/IP network can access legacy processors on a Data Highway Plus DH+ network
Download to a PLC5 or SLC through RSLinx
Configures through web browser · Supports all Data Highway Plus DH+ baud rates (57.6, 115.2, and 230.4 K baud)
Communication must be initiated from the EtherNet/IP side, DH+ Messages cannot be sent to EtherNet/IP devices
Support for DH+ to EtherNet/IP PanelViews upgrades on PLC5 or SLC networks
SPECIFICATIONS
Remote I/O Scanner Features:
This operating mode allows users to replace their existing Remote I/O PLC with a ControlLogix or CompactLogix PAC without having to replace existing racks of I/O.

· Build new controller program without interrupting existing controls, minimizing downtime

· All Remote I/O baud rates are supported (57.6, 115.2, and 230.4 K baud)

· Supports all Remote I/O baud rates (57.6, 115.2, and 230.4 K baud), and Remote I/O addressing 0-76 octal

· Works with both ControlLogix or CompactLogix

· Auto-Configuration utility discovers baud rate and maps discrete I/O reducing configuration errors

Drive:
This operating mode supports upgrading legacy Allen Bradley drives on Remote I/O to new EtherNet/IP enabled drives

· No changes to PLC code required

· Supports up to 4 EtherNet/IP drives

· Configurable with 1/4, 1/2 and full rack addressing

· Supports all PowerFlex drives on EtherNet/IP

HMI
This operating mode supports legacy HMI’s on Remote I/O to be upgraded to a PanelView Plus or PanelView Plus 6 on EtherNet/IP.

· No changes to PLC code required

· Supports up to 8 PanelViews on the same network

DH+
This operating mode acts as a bridge between an EtherNet/IP and a Data Highway Plus network.

· Programming terminals, and/or processors on an EtherNet/IP network can access legacy processors on a DH+ network

· Download to a PLC5 or SLC through RSLinx

· Configured through web browser

· Supports all DH+ baud rates (57.6, 115.2, and 230.4 K baud)

Remote I/O Adapter
This operating mode allows PLC’s on Remote I/O to share data with a newer ControlLogix or CompactLogix PAC’s. This mode also allows a ControlLogix processor to monitor Block Transfer and I/O data on an active Remote I/O network without occupying a drop.

· Supports up to 15 EtherNet/IP I/O connections to a Logix Processor

· Supports any combination of Remote I/O rack addressing

· Auto configures rack addressing and baud rate

Web Access
AN-X2 has a built-in web server. A web browser can view diagnostics, current configuration, upload/download configuration files,
and set operation mode.
