EtherNet/IP Interoperability Test Procedures

Pub 95

This document identifies test procedures for interoperability testing of EtherNet/IP devices. The test procedures are derived from a series of documents that have been produced by ODVA and the North American EtherNet/IP Implementors Workshop.

This document is one of a set of documents that will lay out the test plans, procedures, and logistics for performing interoperability testing on EtherNet/IP devices. This document consists of a specific set of test procedures that describe the way to per form interoperability testing for EtherNet/IP devices. Other documents may describe the specific way in which the tests will be conducted at a particular event. Test results will be recorded in a test results document that will be provided only to the vendor. If the product has a valid Declaration of Conformance (DoC), upon successfully completing the advisory test followed by PlugFest Completion at a TSP, the product’s DoC will be updated to indicate that it has passed the Advisory Test for EtherNet/IP Interoperability. Devices that do not have a valid Declaration of Conformance may use the Interoperability Advisory Test results in the future (within 6 months of completing the Interoperability Advisory test) if the same device revision passes the ODVA Conformance and PlugFest Completion tests at a TSP.

Guidelines for Using Device Level Ring (DLR) with EtherNet/IP

Pub 316

Ethernet is growing in popularity across all levels of enterprise including industrial processes and applications. There are a variety of Industrial applications in which Ethernet ring topologies are preferable to the star topologies common in enterprise networks. Ring networks provide inherent single-point fault tolerance. Ring nodes that include embedded switch technology reduce the need for infrastructure switches and simplify network cabling. Device Level Ring (DLR) protocol provides a means for detecting, managing and recovering from faults in a ring-based network.

Implementation of DLR imposes certain requirements upon the supporting network infrastructure. DLR does not inherently exclude the use of devices which do not support the DLR protocol in a DLR-enabled network. It is expected that legacy devices and other considerations will frequently dictate the use of such devices in a DLR network. However, the use of these devices in a DLR network may significantly affect DLR operation and performance. This whitepaper is intended to provide an overview of DLR and to provide guidelines for implementing a DLR network comprised of DLR devices and devices which do not support the DLR protocol.
