Reading a Drive Parameter with AKD Ethernet IP

This application note covers the different methods for reading a drive parameter over AKD Ethernet IP.

Since it uses examples such as the MSG block for explicit messaging and AOIs ( add on instructions ) the article is

specific to the AB Compactlogix and Contrologix PLCs ( Micrologix 1400 supports only Explicit Messaging ).

Dynamic Mapping and Explicit Messaging methods may also be valid for non-AB PLCs that support Ethernet IP but the user must confirm

compatibility in this case. See the AKD Ethernet IP Landing Page non-AB section for details if this applies to you.
