EtherNet/IP was introduced in 2001 and today is the most developed, proven and complete industrial Ethernet network solution available for manufacturing automation. EtherNet/IP is a member of a family of networks that implements the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) at its upper layers. CIP encompasses a comprehensive suite of messages and services for a variety of manufacturing automation applications, including control, safety, synchronization, motion, configuration and information. As a truly media independent protocol that is supported by hundreds of vendors around the world, CIP provides users with a unified communication architecture throughout the manufacturing enterprise.

EtherNet/IP offers several unique advantages for manufacturing automation applications:

  • Complete producer-consumer services let you simultaneously control, configure and collect data from intelligent devices over a single network or use a single network as a backbone for multiple distributed CIP networks
  • Compatible with standard Internet protocols – e.g. HTTP, FTP, SNMP and DHCP – and standard industrial protocols for data access and exchanges such as OPC
  • Compliance with IEEE Ethernet standards provides users with a choice of network interface speeds – e.g. 10, 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps – and a flexible network architecture compatible with commercially available Ethernet installation options including copper, fiber, fiber ring and wireless
