Configure RevPi Gate for Ethernet/IP

Setting IP Address

With the 8-pin address switch you can set the IP address of the RevPi Gate.

You can set values in binary format between 0-255.

Assigning IP Address manually

  • Set any address between 1-254

The RevPi Gate uses the address 192.168.1.X with the net mask 255.255.255.0 and gateway 192.168.1.1

  • Open the Website http://192.168.1.X
  • Log on: Logon data for the initial logon: User: Admin Password: 1701.
  • Click on the “Change Configuration” button.
  • Set the IP address required.
  • Confirm your entry by pressing the “Apply” button.
  • Set all address switches to “0”.
  • Restart the gateway component by switching this off and then on again.

 The set IP address is now used.

Receiving IP Address from the DHCP Server

  • Set the value “255” (all switches in the direction of the numbers) to activate the DHCP mode.

Assign the IP address automatically from the DHCP server.

Setting IP Address using the Master Software

  • Set the value “0” (all switches to “Off”)

The gateway component uses the IP address that was last set using the software.

  • You can change this IP address at any time via the EtherNet/IP- protocol or website.
  • Restart the gateway component by switching this off and then on again.

The set IP address is now used.

Exchange data

Standard Objects

The following objects are available to you for addressing the process data:

  • Identity Object, Class Code: 01 Hex
  • Message Router, Class Code: 02 Hex
  • Assembly Object, Class Code: 04 Hex
  • Connection Manager Object, Class Code: 06 Hex
  • TCP/IP Interface Object, Class Code: F5 Hex
  • Ethernet Link Object, Class Code: F6 Hex
  • Device Level Ring, Class Code: 47 Hex
  • Quality of Service, Class Code: 48 Hex

These objects comply with the ODVA standard. You can find further information in the specifications for EtherNet/IP. You can find details about the implemented attributes from the EDS file provided.

Device Specific Objects

The following objects are device specific. You can use these to access the input and output data acyclically.

  • Fieldbus Input Data, Class Code: A0 Hex
  • Fieldbus Output Data, Class Code: A1 Hex

Fieldbus Input Data, Class Code: A0 hex
You can use this object to read data that was sent from the gateway component to the EtherNet/IP-Master. This data originates from the Master of the other gateway components.
Fieldbus Output Data, Class Code: A1 hex
You can use this object to write data that was sent from the EtherNet/IP-Master to the gateway component. This data is copied to the input data area of the other gateway component. The Master of the other gateway component can read this data there.
