CompactLogix Driver

This driver allows ARDI to Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLCs using the AB extension to the Ethernet/IP standard.

Note that this is not a generic Ethernet/IP driver and only works on CompactLogix devices.

The driver offers access to live information stored on CompactLogix PLCs.

Addressing in the Ethernet/IP standard is very obscure and difficult for most users to understand. This is why Allen Bradley extended the Ethernet/IP standard for their ControlLogix PLCs to allow you to request data by tag name, something that was sadly lacking in the original EIP standard.

This driver allows you to communicate to this AB-specific Ethernet/IP service, meaning you simply enter the name of the PLC tag into your ARDI configuration.
