NetStaX EtherNet/IP Scanner DLL Kit

Version 5.2

Version 5.2 Now Available

Now CT18 Conformant and enhanced with a CIP Security Enablement option

Pyramid Solutions’ NetStaX™ EtherNet/IP™ Scanner DLL Kit (EIPS) allows you to quickly enable EtherNet/IP Scanner Class (Client/Originator) and/or Adapter Class (Server/Target) functionality into your PC/Windows-based applications and products.

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

Easily configure a variety of EtherNet/IP I/O connections via your application code or through the network via the included Connection Configuration Object (CCO). Users can configure connections through network connected configuration tools that support the CCO, such as Rockwell Software’s RSNetWorx™ for EtherNet/IP. 

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