Lenze-AC Tech Drive Options
EtherNet/IP network protocol capability has been added to

the SMVector ac drive with the addition of a plug-in communication module.

Other network option modules include CANopen, DeviceNet, Profibus and Modbus

RS-485.

EtherNet/IP is a member of the DeviceNet and ControlNet

family of Common Industrial Protocols (CIP). As a member of the CIP family,

EtherNet/IP can use the same set of pre-defined common objects, thus making

communication between devices from different manufacturers much easier.
