This document contains a basic description of configuring, connecting and controlling a Yaskawa AC Drive with either a ControlLogix or CompactLogix PLC on an EtherNet/IP network. Although the description uses a single Yaskawa AC Drive, the principle can be expanded to include a large number of devices. This document and the examples contained herein do not describe all possible methods of connectivity and programming.
