EtherNet/IP overview

EtherNet/IP is the most widely used industrial Ethernet solution for factory automation. Developed by Rockwell Automation, and managed by the Open DeviceNet Vendors Association (ODVA), EtherNet/IP provides a complete set of services and messages for: control, synchronization, safety, motion, and data exchange. For a detailed explanation of EtherNet/IP, read this posting on our Technology Blog.

Novanta IMS Ethernet products support EtherNet/IP as an adapter class device capable of implicit and explicit messaging with remote I/O on-board these integrated motion products. Available as open or closed loop with an internal magnetic encoder or with a multi-turn absolute encoder. Closed loop models feature hMTechnology.
