Release Components

IOD-4116 ODVA EtherNet/IP Driver v1.3.9

Who Should Upgrade?

Recommended for all EtherNet/IP users.

What's New in this Release?

This release fixes issues connecting to some EtherNet/IP devices as well as status reporting issues after a Connected Implicit Class 1 connection is established.

Defects Corrected:

  1. The VIM was unable to connect to certain devices. This was due to an issue with the network packet filter in the VIM incorrectly dropping required messages. The filter rules have been updated.
  2. Bad status for some Class 1 devices (e.g., Allen-Bradley Flex I/O) after being connected for a minute. Encapsulation session keep alive messages were incorrectly used to update the data status in DeltaV.
