EtherNet/IP and CIP network definitions
EtherNet/IP is designed to simplify control and information flow.
EtherNet/IP – "Ether" means using standard Ethernet IEEE 802.x technology.
EtherNet/IP – "Net" means using the TCP/IP protocol suite for email, Internet, and other business applications.
EtherNet/IP – “Ethernet” delivers the real-time and security of traditional fieldbuses with the global standard Ethernet bandwidth and open connectivity.
EtherNet/IP – "IP" stands for ODVA's Common "Industrial Protocol" (CIP™), which sits at the industrial application layer and allows routing of information between networks. With CIP, EtherNet/IP maintains the standard and common protocols normally associated with standard Ethernet installations and applications. For more information, see: CIP on Ethernet Technology [PDF].
EtherNet/IP – standard, unmodified, future proof.
EtherNet/IP uses off-the-shelf media and infrastructure products because it complies with IEEE 802.3 and TCP/UDP/IP standards and conventions. This helps operations and IT professionals collaborate to deploy and maintain a secure, reliable and robust network infrastructure across the enterprise and across industrial environments. So you can take advantage of the continuous advancements in standard Ethernet and TCP/IP technology to make EtherNet/IP a scalable and future-proof network architecture.
CIP is an application layer protocol shared by a family of industrial networks, EtherNet/IP, ControlNet™ and DeviceNet™. You can combine these CIP networks in any combination without any gateways or proxies, thus avoiding the complexity of additional configuration and programming for gateways or proxies.
CIP can also increase flexibility, ensure compatibility and ease the difficulty of integrating equipment into new and legacy systems, while also giving manufacturers the ability to fuse their communications architecture to improve operational efficiency.
CIP Network Extensions CIP Safety™, CIP Sync™ and CIP Motion™ provide industrial networking for safety, time synchronization and motion control. As a natural extension of ODVA's industrial automation applications, ODVA initiated a new energy program to transform the distribution model of industrial energy resources.
