Englewood, CO — ODVA started its 2007 CIP Networks Conference and 12th Annual Meeting, today. It’s running Sept. 18-20, here near Denver, CO, for those interested in ODVA and its Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) Networks and extensions, such as DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP, CompoNet, CIP Safety, CIP Motion, and CIP Sync.

 

The CIP Networks Conference gathers “leading automation suppliers from around the world with the purpose of sharing technical expertise and implementation experiences in a vendor-independent forum” said Katherine Voss, executive director of ODVA, prior to the event. “The continued growth of CIP Networks demonstrates that the market has recognized the benefits of implementing networking solutions built on a proven, standards-based industrial protocol and a future-proof network architecture.” Sessions focus on how CIP Networks can “provide increased opportunities for return on automation investments,” she added.

 

The meeting includes marketing, technologies, applications, recent developments, future technologies, and training, including “EtherNet/IP Quick Start” developer’s training and “Introduction to Modbus/TCP Integration” overview; use of EZ-EDS freeware, use of the CompoNet Developer’s Toolkit, development considerations for CompoNet processors, preparations for successful CIP Networks conformance testing, and an EtherNet/IP Implementer Workshop.

 

In recent CIP-related developments:

 

* ODVA published a network infrastructure guide for EtherNet/IP, an industrial Ethernet protocol. “Network Infrastructure for EtherNet/IP: Introduction and Considerations” introduces the network infrastructure used in EtherNet/IP networks and gives users a framework for identifying considerations that are most critical to specific applications. It combines knowledge of experts from companies that lead in the application of Ethernet on the factory floor, ODVA says. A PDF copy of the guide can be freely downloaded from the ODVA website.

 

* ODVA set up new a joint special interest group, the EtherNet/IP Infrastructure Joint Special Interest Group ("Infrastructure jSIG"), to promote standards for infrastructure devices used in communication networks that implement EtherNet/IP.

 

* ODVA offers CompoNet dedicated developer toolkits from ODVA. The first toolkit to be released included hardware and software to help build CompoNet slaves and repeaters. The hardware delivered as standard in the toolkit includes slave/repeater ASICs, transformers and receivers. Cable and accessories are provided, including connectors, terminators, and a connector assembly tool. The hardware is available for IP20 and IP54 environments. The toolkit’s software components include sample code for slaves / repeaters; documentation describes sample source code, a sample circuit diagram for slaves, and a guide for hardware design. Get the toolkits or specification by visiting the site and clicking “Order.”
