New PLCIO Version 4.4.1 Released

Version 4.4.1 of the PLCIO communications software is now available. This release introduces several feature enhancements listed below.

Important Changes:

  • The CIP Path= parameter now supports aliases for port names (such as Backplane, A, and B) and IP Addresses for use when routing packets to a secondary Logix rack through EtherNet/IP.
  • A long standing bug in the "cip" module has been fixed, where if a Path= parameter larger than 2 arguments is used, then a plc_write() with a length of about 470 bytes or higher would fail because the message packet was too long.
  • A new option is available to the "enipd" and "plciod" daemons to specify the maximum size of the logfile. This is useful for embedded systems with low available disk space.
  • Two new operation codes are available: PLC_RLONGINT and PLC_WLONGINT. These are used for reading or writing to Long Integer files containing 4-byte elements. This is supported for both PLC-5 and SLC500 messaging types.
  • The "enip" module can now receive PLC-5 Word Range Read/Write messages from ControlLogix.
  • And many other bug fixes.
