Ethernet/IP Device - Real-time Simulation for Windows

With the Ethernet/IP Device Stack for Windows, a complete system can be simulated at real-time with a PC. The stack offers the option of reading existing EDS files from real devices and configuring them for simulation. So the simulated devices behave like in the real world. In combination with the "X - Realtime Engine" from SYBERA, the realtime simulation behaves like the real system. The device simulation is carried out directly from the PC using standard Ethernet adapters. The physical connection to the PLC is made using commercially available INTEL or REALTEK PCI (e) adapters. A corresponding PCMCIA or ExpressCard (PDF) adapter is also possible. This means that no additional hardware is required and there is no need for separate Ethernet/IP hardware. The basis of the programming library is the Ethernet/IP device stack with the "X - Realtime" technology. The software runs under Windows and enables the simulation of several Ethernet/IP devices simultaneously at real-time. Depending on the PC hardware and application, telegram update times of up to 250 μsec can be implemented.

Ethernet/IP Device - Functionality

With the integrated station management of the Ethernet/IP device stack, the devices can be managed and operated almost completely implicitly. Each individual function step (Ethernet/IP service) can also be controlled in a targeted manner. SYBERA has also developed the comprehensive test software EIPCONFIG. This software enables the developer to test the simulated Ethernet/IP devices and carry out the parameterization. The developer is guided interactively through the individual function groups and states. All information is visualized in detail.

Ethernet/IP Device - Technology

Here, not only the sending and receiving of industrial Ethernet protocols according to the Ethernet/IP specification is realized in real time. The interface also enables the functional processing of the Ethernet/IP telegrams in a separate real-time task. The system is based on 4 real-time tasks: sending and receiving Ethernet frames, processing user data and error handling. The tasks are functionally synchronized via a STATE machine. A real-time task detects frame errors and hardware latencies. It is also checked whether a reply telegram has been received for a sent Ethernet/IP telegram (e.g. in the event of a timeout), whether the working counter of the reply telegram has been increased and whether the index fields of the send and receive telegrams match. With a frame filter, the Ethernet/IP telegrams are separated from the Ethernet frame in real time and transferred to a telegram stack. The developer has the option of implementing the functional processing (e.g. Realtime Level2) in a real-time task at the system or application level.
