This was just a question to make sure that this was not a problem. I was getting this error message (Error -251723767 occurred at EthernetIP Tag Read REAL.vi;
Details: Unable to connect to the network path specified) so This prompted the question. I guess I still don't have the proper information in the IP address input. this is what I have so far (10.6.82.10,1769,1769-L35E) I am not totally sure about the backplane port address. I believe there is something missing after the 1769 value. I didn't program the PLC so I currently have been trying to get this information from the vender who supplied the PLC.
Can you describe your PLC configuration? Chassis type, what slot the CPU is in, etc? I think for most setups the addressing after the IP address would be ",1,0" for backplane 1, slot 0.

I have been successfully reading the tags and also writing to the tag addresses. Thanks again.
I am new to this forum
I have a compactlogix processor
I am using 3.6 AI with the add on for enet/ip
I have had the unsupported error
I also cannot import the l5k my tags export as csv
also do i need to add the camera as a module to my I/O tree?
If so what are the settings?
I am hopefully going to be attending the seminar in overland park KS
You might want to move future posts regarding the VBAI EtherNet/IP Addon to the Machine Vision discussion group as that is where support for VBAI resides.
As for your error, it would be useful to know the exact error you are receiving. One common issue is that while you have installed the VBAI 3.6 EtherNet/IP addon to your host system, your SmartCamera (or other VBAI system) has not been updated with a new image with the new functionality. Within VBAI you need to go to the system and deploy the new image that was installed via the addon that is labeled to have EtherNet/IP support included.
Within RSLogix5000, the Tools->Export only exports to CSV format. However, the File->Save does let you save an L5K file. In general, importing the tags is a convenience, but if you know the names and types of your tags you could always add them manually.
Within VBAI 3.6 with the EtherNet/IP addon, only explicit messaging is currently supported. This means that you do not add the camera into the I/O tree.
Hope this helps,
I did get the target updated with the addon file
I am trying to communicate with a compactlogix plc
Attached is a screenprint of the error, which seems to be a common one in this forum
My dropdown still shows only csv but i will explore that later, for now i am just trying to get a test tag to work
Thank you so much for the quick response.
