Since Rockwell Automation® discontinued its 1761-NET-ENI, you might be just a tad worried: How are you going to connect your newer EtherNet/IP™ equipment to your older DF1 devices? The good news is that we have a replacement for your 1761-NET-ENI that can help you maintain your operation’s efficiency – while enabling a path to a streamlined modernization.
The PLX51-DF1-ENI Routing Module solves your NET-ENI problems – you can use it in all applications that the 1761-NET-ENI is used, except email messages from PLCs. Need to upgrade an old PanelView™ or add a PanelView Plus on your DF1 network? The module can help you do just that. Want to save time by remotely programming your existing DF1 PLCs? It can enable that, too.DF1 Routing Module
