The RETA-01 Adapter module supports the Modbus/TCP and EtherNet/IP network protocols. Modbus/TCP is a variant of the Modbus family of simple, vendor-neutral communication protocols intended for supervision and control of automation equipment. The implementation of the Modbus/TCP server in the RETA-01 module is done according to the Modbus/TCP Specification 1.0. The Modbus/TCP protocol allows the RETA-01 module to be used as an Ethernet bridge to control the drive. The RETA-01 module supports eight simultaneous IP connections. Ethernet/IP is based on the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP), which is also the framework for both the ControlNet and DeviceNet networks. Ethernet/IP uses standard Ethernet and TCP/IP technology to transport CIP communication packets. The module fulfills all requirements for certification as an Ethernet/IP device.
