The Fastest Way to Enable Your Product to Read and Write PLC Tags
The EtherNet/IP Allen-Bradley PLC Tag Client Source Code Stack offers the quickest method of integrating a ControlLogix, CompactLogix, MicroLogix or SLC5/05 programmable controller into your application. The solution gives you a communication mechanism to initiate reads and writes to and from the data table of Allen-Bradly PLCs.
Allen-Bradley programmable controllers supporting EtherNet/IP are prevalent in manufacturing operations worldwide. They manage conveyor lines, water treatment plants, breweries and every other kind of industrial environment imaginable.
But with their Tag-based architecture, accessing the data tables of ControlLogix, CompactLogix, MicroLogix, and PLC5/05 controllers is complicated and time consuming. Not only must you manage long ASCII string names, but the command sets to access these advanced controllers are equally daunting.
Today you have a unique, easy-to-use, royalty-free, ANSI C source code communication stack that does nothing other than read and write tags from the data table of a PLC.
It handles the low-level TCP connections, the EtherNet/IP session layer communications and everything else that you don’t care or need to know about. All you need to do is give your Tag Client-enabled device an Ethernet TCP/IP Address. Then, input the tag names to read from and the tag names to write to. It’s that easy! Data is flowing directly from the tags in the data table of your Allen-Bradley PLC.
The Real Time Automation EtherNet/IP Allen-Bradley PLC Tag Client Source Code Stack offers the quickest method of integrating a ControlLogix, CompactLogix, MicroLogix or SLC5/05 programmable controller into your application.
This product is a royalty-free, ANSI C source code that moves data between an Allen-Bradley PLC and an embedded system running Windows, Linux, VxWorks or any other OS.
You need to connect to an Allen-Bradley PLC but probably don’t know much about how to do it and certainly don’t have a year or more to properly code it in-house, deploy it and ring it out in 10 or 20 prototype systems. You make devices that do all kinds of wonderful things but you’re not an industrial networking expert nor should you be. That’s where we come in. Our only business is helping automation people just like you get network enabled. It is all we’ve been doing for more than 30 years.
Out of the box you’ll not only get the Tag Client source code but a working Windows project that you can use to test it, the interface for many TCP/IP stacks, and an extensive user manual. Some folks have been able to take this tool and get messaging working within a few hours!
Real Time Automation is your best solution for helping you communicate with an Allen-Bradley PLC. This EtherNet/IP royalty-free source code stack is a single task solution for EtherNet/IP. This solution was built from the ground up specifically for embedded microcontroller applications. It has an incredibly straight forward, easy to understand API that makes integration of EtherNet/IP into your device almost effortless.
The support and responsiveness of our support team is second to none. You receive support from the engineers who wrote the code and sit on the committees that define it. When you call RTA, won’t get an automated voice or redirected to India. You get a live, industry recognized EtherNet/IP expert. That is the RTA difference.
“When it came to getting the job done, we turned to Real Time Automation, and they performed. RTA helped us figure out a complex communications interface problem in short order, and provided hardware and software modification requirements for implementation before we even got off the plane!”

“We have worked with Real Time Automation on a variety of projects over the past few years. I have consistently found them enthusiastic to work with us throughout the development process to ensure that we receive a communications solution that meets our needs. More importantly, their commitment to providing timely support services after the initial release of the system is truly exemplary.”
