Release Components

IOD-4116 ODVA EtherNet/IP Driver v1.3.11

Who Should Upgrade?

Mandatory for all ODVA EtherNet/IP users.

What's New in this Release?

Added functionality to read/write L file types in MicroLogix and ControlLogix communications when using UCMM messaging. L File types comprise 32-bit integers. VIMNet Explorer v9.5.0.4 or later is required to configure L File connections.

Enhancements/Optimizations Implemented:

This release does not contain any new enhancements.

Defects Corrected:

Corrected defect for redundant sites using ControlLogix hot backup chassis. On chassis swap, a gratuitous ARP is sent by the active chassis to inform other devices about the new IP/MAC address. This ARP frame was being filtered out in the VIM. Consequently, VIM communications with the currently active chassis did not resume for an extended time period.

Corrected Tag access defect where read/write requests for array element tags (e.g., x[0], x[1], y[1,3], etc) in a tag list were not correct. Consequently, these tags returned errors which were reported to the DeltaV dataset.
