EtherNet/IP Configuration and Troubleshooting

Course Link: CCP 183

Course Purpose:

This course should prepare you to effectively:

  • Configure a Stratix® switch (5700, 8000, and/or 8300) to meet a variety of network requirements

  • Assign IP addresses to devices on an EtherNet/IP network using rotary switches and a variety of software

  • Monitor switch performance and status

  • Diagnose and resolve issues with switches and devices on a network

    During switch configuration, you will have an opportunity to:

  • Configure a switch using both the Device Manager Web Interface and Studio 5000 Logix Designer® software

  • Set up one-to-one IP address translation (NAT) for segmenting machine-level network devices from the plant network

  • Secure and limit access to a switch

    Once the EtherNet/IP network is up and running, you will monitor diagnostic information using web-based technologies and modify a web server module’s data views and tag values.

    You will resolve issues with communication between devices on a network. You will troubleshoot an EtherNet/IP network’s media and components (including the Stratix 5700 switch); run diagnostic tests to resolve system and port issues; and perform common functions such as resetting the switch.
