Hi, you said

 

"NI EIP toolkit can only be an EIP adapter rather than a scanner. The role of a scanner is typically played by a PLC who should be able to parse EDS to read the electronic device description file of a particular EIP device."

 

Does that mean I cannot access/read data from a device that can send data over EtherNet/IP from my LabVIEW application? Only a PLC can do that?

 

And if I can, I would really want to know how as I am struggling with a device to communicate over EtherNet/IP from my LabVIEW application using EIP Adapter Toolkit.

 

Thanks.
