we have an allen bradley 1768-l43 cpu we are upgrading.
we are upgrading to a 1769-l33er
the issue we have is the old system has some controlnet point I/o
the new cpu does not support controlnet communications.
our distrubitor sold us a anybus-x ab7673-f gateway
the idea is to map the controlnet to the plc via Ethernet ip
I have set up a test bench with 1 controlnet point io direct to the anybus gateway. the gateway controlnet network has a green light. the point io has been configured but its network light is flashing green.
I have set the gateway ip address
I have added the gateway into the plc io tree.
from here im lost as to what I need to do.
im not convinced this is the correct setup.
can you please help.
