EIPA CIP Security

Pyramid Solutions’ NetStaX™ EtherNet/IP™ Adapter DLL Kit (EIPA) enables you to quickly introduce EtherNet/IP Adapter Class functionality into your PC/Windows-based products and systems.

Our EIPA EtherNet/IP Adapter Class protocol stack provides I/O Server, Message Server, and Message Client functionality and provides an Application Programming Interface (API) for using Common Industrial Protocol via TCP/IP. The EIPA Stack interfaces with your product’s application software and the standard Windows (Winsock) socket level TCP/IP interface. The EIPA can utilize a PC or Laptop’s standard Ethernet NICs (physical or virtual).  No other hardware or software is required.

The EIPA stack is also capable of supporting CIP Security with the EIPA-SECURE option, which adds secure connections and encryption to the standard EIPA EtherNet/IP connections and messaging*.
