The Lexium product family incorporates the following features:

Class 1 connection via assemblies:

  • Maximum number of connections: 4
  • Supported actual packet intervals (API): 2 ... 3200 [ms]
  • Supported connection types product to PLC (Target to Originator): Point-to-point, Multicast
  • Supported connection types PLC to product (Originator to Target): Point-to-point
  • Supported triggers: cyclic, state transition 

Class 3 connections via Explicit Messages:

  • Maximum number of connections: 16
  • Supported actual packet intervals (API): 10 ... 10000 [ms]
  • Supported connection types product to PLC (Target to Originator): Point-to-point
  • Supported connection types PLC to product (Originator to Target): Point-to-point
  • The product identifies itself as CIP "Generic Device" (Device Type =0h).

Data link layer
The EtherNet/IP data link layer uses the transmission mechanisms as per IEEE 802.3 Standard Ethernet specification (edition 2002). This makes it possible to use a wide selection of available Ethernet components.

Physical layer
Industrial EtherNet/IP specifies minimum requirements in terms of ambient conditions, cabling and connectors, based on IEC, ANSI, TIA and EIA standards. The connectors required for Industrial EtherNet/IP include M12-4 connectors, D-coded. Use shielded or unshielded CAT5e or CAT6 cables for Industrial EtherNet/IP. Copper media may be used only for distances up to 100 m.
