Etherip ------- A Java library for reading and writing tags on AllenBradley Control Logix or Compact Logix PLCs via the Ethernet/IP protocol (aka DeviceNet-over-Ethernet or CIP-over-Ethernet). This is a Java implementation of the same protocol that https://github.com/EPICSTools/ether_ip provides in C. Like the C implementation, the Java code is based on * The generic EtherNet/IP specification available from http://www.odva.org. This describes the basic CIP commands and how they are wrapped for TCP. It allows reading the device info like vendor code and serial number from the AllenBradley Control Logix ENET module. * Allen Bradley document 1756-RM005A-EN-E.pdf, "Logix5000 Data Access", which describes the CIP service codes specific to the ControlLogix 5000 series. It allows reading and writing tags on the controller. A newer version seems to be here: http://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/pm/1756-pm020_-en-p.pdf What this means: * The code can read and write tags from AllenBradley Control Logix PLCs. Works with older versions that had separate controller and ENET module as well as L8x series that combines ENET module with controller. * There is generic EtherNet/IP code for reading attributes of control net objects. You might be able to use that to access information on other types of EtherNet/IP devices, but as in the Control Logix example you might need details about additional, vendor-specific CIP service codes to get at the useful data. See also the ICALEPCS 2001 paper "Interfacing the ControlLogix PLC over Ethernet/IP", http://accelconf.web.cern.ch/AccelConf/ica01/papers/THDT002.pdf The C implementation also provides EPICS device support for IOCs on top of the basic protocol library. The Java implementation is currently only the basic read/write library with unit tests to demonstrate the functionality. Eventually, this could be connected to an EPICS V4 network server. For basic read/write, see test/etherip/EtherIPDemo.java For a 'scan list' that reads tags all the time, but also allows writing them, see test/etherip/scan/ScanListTest.java
