Path 1,0 refer to Slot 0 (1- Backplane, 0-Slot 0). This is PRP diagnostic message and it should be EN2TP or EN4TR in that slot.

I would recommend to follow the technote QA67231 From the technote: Step 1: Enable / Disable the OPC UA engine of the controller OPC UA functionality is disabled by default. An MSG instruction is used to enable (or disable again) OPC UA functionality.

All Stratix ports should be configured, does not matter if they are part of a DLR or just used to connect end devices. If you have a single VLAN DLR, then DLR ports should be using Smartport "Multiport Automation Device" macro. If you need more than one VLAN then you must set DLR Trunking with DLR ...

I recommend you to check the DLR manual ENET-AT007 Specifically Chapter 4 configuration examples It does not have Stratix 5200 yet, but most of configuration screens will be exactly the same as Stratix 5800, starting on page 72 You can also use Stratix 5400 examples, only Web pages will look differently, ...

Mohmad, DLR Faceplate (and AOI) in any version does not require switches to be in the IO configuration. All paths are configured manually. If you are talking about Stratix Faceplate (and AOI), then yes, it requires switch to be in the IO configuration. However, Stratix faceplate (in any versions) ...

I am not aware of any published MSG information related to the Redundant Gateway. However, your statement that Backup switch is not available in IO Configuration, tells me that there is a configuration issue. Possibly, the DLR ports may not be on the CIP VLAN, or something else, so I would troubleshoot ...

Mohamad, DLR Add-On Instructions, that are the part of the Network Device Library, provide DLR diagnostics, including Redundant Gateway status. You can download these from the PCDC site, by searching for Network Device Library.

Modbus TCP Client AOI supports up to 5 transactions. Based on your description, you need more than 100. It's possible to increase the number of transactions by changing the Transaction array size, but this is not something that I would recommend. Also all transactions are executed sequentially, so performance ...

The connection on your first picture should work if you configure ETAP as a DLR network supervisor and leave L84E and ETAP port settings with Auto Negotiatiation. To enable DLR supervisor, use RSlinks or FT Linx. Select ETAP configuration and then enable DLR Supervisor on the Network Tab. Leaving ...

NTP protocol uses UDP, so it's normal to have this error when nothing came back from the server (empty Read buffer). Instead of the technote listed above, I would refer to the sockets manual page 39 https://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/at/enet-at002_-en-p.pdf ...

I think this has something to do with DNS server setting that you need to resolve time.google.com User Manual 5069-UM001 page 145. To confirm, you need to try to use IP address instead of time.google.com

"Create" message stays within the controller and should not depend on the network traffic and/or the peer device. To troubleshoot, we need to get a fault code from the "Create" Message. I would add the simple logic to capture .ERR and .EXERR values when .ER bit does high. Also, maybe capture the ...

As mentioned above, the only way to implement any AOI with Message Instructions is to use Rung Import. This will create all new message tags and will populate these with correct values. Some message values can be populated programmatically, but few are not, like tags and service code. So Import is ...

Reading the manual linked above, I need to clarify some of my comments: 1. StationID (or Unit ID) should be set to 1 for this device (page 3) 2. Both functions 3 and 4 will give you the same result (page 4) 3. It does appear that you must use shift by -1 and use even number of registers. For ...

Mike, First, I would try a simple thing: Setup Modbus TCP Server AOI on the same or a different PLC and try to read from that server, just to verify that Client AOI is functioning correctly on your PLC. Next, I would try to use even addresses instead of odd: like 2304 or maybe 2306. Modbus ...

I am not familiar with this specific device, but quick search for the user manual points to this: Comm format set to Data-DINT assembly sizes should be at least 10 and 10 (32bit values) Also refer to this note: 11.6 Configuration with RSLogix 5000 When commissioning your EtherNet/IP™ network, ...

This is correct behavior called Rapid Fault/Restore. If supervisor detected 5 faults in 30 seconds, then it will disable port 2. Rapid faults must be addressed as it's usually a hardware or cabling issue.

Older Micrologix 1400 don't support "Set to Static", some will never respond to this CIP message with symptoms similar to what you have described. However, if you flash it to the most recent firmware, then it will work with "Set to Static" correctly. Since we are talking Micrologix, then worth to ...
