Ethernet Devicescapable of talking Modbus TCP, EtherNet/IP, IEC 61850 MMS(Manufacturing Message Specification), OPC UA client andEtherNet/IP Control Tag Integration protocols are supported.Ability to communicate directly to Ethernet DeviceNetworks. Use the EIOC to monitor and controlEthernet Devices.The EIOC provides monitoring and control of Ethernet Deviceson the Ethernet Device Network via control modules assignedto and executed in the EIOC. Ethernet Devices like PLCs,Motor Control Centers, drives, switchgear and others can becontrolled directly by the EIOC, independent of a controller. Powerful and Scalable. The EIOC allows a huge amount ofdata coming from Ethernet Devices to be accessed in DeltaV,and is scalable to fit your needs with licensing based on thenumber of devices you connect. The EIOC can bring:zUp to 32,000 signals from 256 Ethernet Devices whenusing Modbus TCP, EtherNet/IP, or IEC61850 MMS.zUp to 30,000 signals from 64 Ethernet Devices whenusing OPC UA client protocol.zUp to 2000 tags (10 signals per tag) from 256 EthernetDevices when using EtherNet/IP Control TagIntegration Protocol.
Ethernet I/O Card (EIOC) Monitoring. Data values integrated into the EIOC canbe used in Control Modules running inside the EIOC.These control modules allow alarm generation,history collection, and viewing by the operator,as with control modules running in a Controllerusing traditional DeltaV native I/O. Supports control functionality. In addition,function blocks allowing for discrete control and limitedPID control are supported for the EIOC. No assignment to acontroller is required. Motors, switchgear, variable frequencydrives; or any device that communicate via Ethernetprotocols can be controlled directly from the EIOC. Easy to connect to Ethernet Devices using Modbus TCP,EtherNet/IP, IEC61850 MMS, OPC UA client and EtherNet/IP Control Tag Integration protocols. Use the EIOC Ethernetprotocols to connect your DeltaV system to your EthernetDevice Networks. Huge processing capacity. Each EIOC is capable of handlinga huge amount of Data in up to 2000 Control Modules. EIOC is part of the DeltaV Control Network. 60 EIOC’scan be added directly to the DeltaV Control Network,allowing maximum freedom in segregating your networks. Flexible networking. User configurable IP addressing forthe Ethernet Device Network allows the EIOC to be used inalmost any plant environment regardless of the networkingscheme. When designing a simplex Ethernet Device Network,consider that the EIOC and the Ethernet Devices must be onthe same IP subnet to communicate. Also, when designinga redundant Ethernet Device Network, consider that theprimary and secondary ports in the EIOC must be in differentsubnets to follow best engineering practices. Easy to use. The EIOC is easy to use as it provides a nativeway to bring Ethernet protocol data into the DeltaV system.Specific ease of use features include:zYou can choose between the 5 different Ethernetprotocols supported in the EIOC. Only one protocol issupported at a time and requires the proper licensing.zUpdates for the EIOC and drivers are includedwithin DeltaV.www.emerson.com/deltavApril 2021z Configured in DeltaV Explorer. All needed configurationfor the Ethernet Devices is done in DeltaV Explorer andDeltaV Control Studio, just like Traditional I/O signals.The data can be configured in DeltaV Control Modules,displayed on DeltaV Live and DeltaV Operate graphics,and stored in the DeltaV Continuous Historian.Modular and Easy to add Redundancy. The dual horizontalcarrier hosts all the needed components for a redundantsetup (redundant Power input Terminals and redundantEthernet Isolation ports). The EIOC becomes redundantjust by adding a second EIOC on the dual horizontalcarrier. The configuration will change automatically,confirming that the two EIOCs are now working as aredundant pair. Manual switchovers can be controlledin DeltaV Diagnostics Explorer. The redundant Ethernetports provide isolation between DeltaV Control Networkcommunication and the redundant Ethernet Device Network.The EIOC also implements Parallel Redundant Protocol(PRP) for an added layer of robustness, providing a seamlessswitchover between primary and secondary networks.Product DescriptionThe EIOC is a big pipe for the integration of process data from3rd party Ethernet Devices, such as PLCs and smart field devicessuch as Intelligent Field Devices (IFDs) and Intelligent ElectronicDevices (IEDs). A network of these Ethernet Devices can bedirectly connected to the EIOC. The Ethernet Devices cancommunicate to the EIOC using one of five protocols;Modbus TCP, EtherNet/IP, IEC61850 MMS, OPC UA clientand EtherNet/IP Control Tag Integration. The EIOC connectsdirectly into the DeltaV Control Network and can be placedremotely in an enclosure in the field.The EIOC is an independent embedded data server. This meansthat there is no need for a separate controller to process thedata being integrated into the EIOC. Control Modules neededto process the data from the Ethernet Devices are assigned andexecuted in the EIOC. In this way, communications with thedevices are fast and direct. Any parameters from the modulesrunning in the EIOC can be read by both S-series and M-seriescontrollers using External References when needed in controlstrategies at the controller level.2
Ethernet I/O Card (EIOC)April 2021When configuring the EIOC Control Modules, all typicalFunction blocks needed for continuous operation are available;however, the usage of the following Function blocks are limitedin the EIOC: 256 DC’s, EDC’s and DCC’s – used for such applications asmotor control in MCCs. 26 PID’s – analog control where all or most of the signals arecoming from Ethernet Devices. 16 SEQs – Sequence function block used for sequencingmotor control states. 16 STDs – State Transition Diagram used in sequencing andcan be used with the SEQ function blocks. Batch control, SFCs, PLMs, and Equipment Modules are notsupported in the EIOC.To maintain the capacity of the EIOC, consideration should betaken to keep modules as lean as possible. Heavy configurationin the modules will decrease the capacity of 2000 modules inthe EIOC.Listed by category, the following is a complete list of thefunction blocks available with the EIOC.Advanced Control – NoneAdvanced Functions – State Transition, Step SequencerAnalog Control – Analog Tracking, Calc/Logic, Filter,Input Selector, Scaler, Signal Characterizer, Signal Generator,Signal Selector, Bias/Gain, Manual Loader, PID, Rate Limit,Ramp, Enhanced Ramp, Splitter, LimitEnergy Metering – NoneIO – Alarm Detection, AI, AO, DI, DOTag I/O – DI, DO, AI, AOSimplex EIOC (Protection cover installed in the redundant EIOC slotin the dual horizontal carrier).Access to DeltaV Live graphics, DeltaV Operate graphics, andthe alarms and history collection from EIOC control modulesfollows the same rules and mechanisms as control modulesrunning in the controllers in a DeltaV System.The EIOC mounts on the dual horizontal carrier, which includesredundant Power input Terminals as well as redundantEthernet Isolation ports. The Ethernet Isolation ports isolatethe redundant DeltaV Control Network communicationfrom the redundant Ethernet Device Networks. An IndustrialNetworks Firewall is recommended to provide added securitybased on deep packet inspection to restrict communicationsat the Ethernet device and Ethernet protocol level. In this way,Robustness and Security is ensured.Logical – AllMath – AllSpecial Items – AllTimer Counter – Allwww.emerson.com/deltav3
Ethernet I/O Card (EIOC)April 2021The DeltaV system with a redundant Ethernet I/O Card and simplex connection to the Ethernet Device Network.Supported IndustrialEthernet Protocols:Modbus TCP InterfaceThe Modbus TCP interface will support Modbus datasources such as PLCs, MCCs, analyzers and similar devicescommunicating Modbus TCP. The Modbus TCP interface is aModbus Client reading and writing data from/to Modbus Serverdevices. The Modbus server devices can be Modbus TCP devicesor Modbus serial devices using a Modbus TCP gateway.The Modbus TCP interface supports the following types ofdata access: Reading input data from Modbus Coils, Discrete Input,Holding Registers, and Input Registers. Writing output data to Coils and Holding registers.EtherNet /IPThe EtherNet/IP protocol allows data sources such asPLCs, Intelligent Field Devices (IFDs), variable-speed drives,MCCs, and analyzers; as well as other devices communicatingEtherNet/IP to connect directly in to DeltaV via the EIOC.The EtherNet/IP interface will support connections forboth implicit and explicit messaging to allow access to bothClass 1 and Class 3 EtherNet/IP I/O adapters. Redundancy withEtherNet/IP Class 1 Implicit and Class 3 Explicit messagingfor control (sending outputs to the devices) require specialconsiderations due to exclusive owner communications definedby the protocol. Please refer to the DeltaV System PlanningGuide for more information. Class 3 PCCC and UCMM withLogix tags message classes are also supported.All reads will be performed periodically and outputs will besent when they are written.www.emerson.com/deltav4
Ethernet I/O Card (EIOC)April 2021IEC 61850 (MMS)The IEC 61850 MMS interface will allow data from IntelligentElectronic Devices (IEDs) such as motor protection relays,motor starters, motor control centers, switchgear, and similarMMS-based devices to be integrated into DeltaV. The MMSinterface will be a client reading and writing data from/to theIntelligent Electronic Device which acts as the server.The EIOC only supports reading and writing of real timesignals using this protocol. Reading historical data orGoose applications are not supported.OPC UA ClientThe OPC UA Client in the EIOC provides native clientimplementation of a Data Access profile (real time data)compliant with OPC UA version 1.03. The OPC UA client willread and write up to 30,000 real time signals coming fromup to 64 OPC UA servers.EtherNet/IP Control Tag Integration protocolThe EtherNet/IP Control Tag Integration protocol utilizesEtherNet/IP Class 3 messaging to provide integration withtag-based PLC data sources. Referencing data by tag nameeliminates the need for register mapping. Read or write upto 10 signals per tag, and up to 2000 tags per EIOC for a totalof 20,000 signals. The EtherNet/IP Control Tag Integrationprotocol supports reading string type signals and read/writeof arrays up to 64 elements each (max 100 arrays per EIOC).The EtherNet/IP Control Tag Integration protocol supportsintegration with ControlLogix and CompactLogix PLCsutilizing tags.EIOC with Parallel Redundant Protocol (PRP) enabled in a redundantEthernet Device Network, talking directly with native PRP devicesand using a RedBox to talk to Non-native PRP devices.PRP is independent of the application-protocol and can beused by most Industrial Ethernet protocols. In the EIOC,PRP is an optional feature than can be enabled at the port leveland is available with all the protocols supported in the EIOC.When enabled, PRP runs on top of the protocol that is selectedat that time.For PRP to work properly, the Ethernet Devices connected tothe redundant network needs to support PRP natively as well.If the devices do not support PRP natively, then a RedBox mustbe used to allow the connection into the PRP network withouthaving bad status in diagnostics.Parallel Redundant Protocol (PRP)PRP is a network protocol standard for Ethernet that providesseamless failover against failure of any network component.Therefore, it is a great solution when high availability and shortswitchover time is required (e.g. electrical monitoring usingIEC 61850 MMS). PRP allows for communications in Primary andSecondary ports of the Ethernet Device Network in the EIOC tohappen at the same time. This means that a device connectedto the Ethernet Device network is getting the same informationat the same time, through different network paths. In case offailure in one of the networks it basically provides a zero-timeto recovery (no time to switchover) and eliminates any singlepoint of failure in a redundant Ethernet Device Network.www.emerson.com/deltav5
Ethernet I/O Card (EIOC)EIOC ConfigurationThe EIOC is configured in the I/O network level of DeltaVExplorer and it does not count towards the controller nodecount limit (limited to 60 EIOCs per system). The hierarchyof the EIOC in DeltaV Explorer consist of: EIOCzAssigned Modules – Modules configured and runninginside the EIOC.zHardware Alarms – Hardware alarms associated withthe EIOC.zPO1 – EIOC port, where the Ethernet Device Networkand protocol is setup.zPDT – The Ethernet Devices are added and configuredunder the EIOC port as Physical Devices (PDTs).The amounts of PDTs that can be configured will varydepending of the protocol selected in the port andthe amount of device licenses assigned. The PDTs canbe renamed.zLDT – Logical Devices (LDTs) are added under the PDTs toconfigure signals or control tags depending of the protocolthat has been selected at the port level. DST licenses areapplied at this level.April 2021SummaryThe EIOC supports communications with Ethernet Devicesusing Modbus TCP, EtherNet/IP, IEC61850 MMS, OPC UA clientand Ethernet/IP Control Tag Integration protocols. The EIOCsupports a huge capacity of data for monitoring or control.The Capacity, polling and switchover times vary based onprotocol, device type, and loading. Refer to the DeltaV SystemPlanning Guide for more information.The EIOC capacity lends itself to very large integration projectswith limited control needs. For applications that requirebatch or sequence control (class-based units, PLMs, SFCs,and Equipment Modules are not supported in the EIOC)or more complex control that requires other functionalitysuch as traditional, bus, or Electronic Marshalling IO, then aPK controller or a VIM2 card combined with a DeltaV controllercould be a better solution. Please consult your local Emersonoffice for more details.EIOC LicensingLicensing for the EIOC is easy and scalable. Just buy thehardware assembly for the EIOC, simplex or redundant.No additional license is required for redundancy. Then decidewhich protocol you need (one per EIOC is permitted),and pick the appropriate license. Next, determine how manyEthernet Devices you need to connect, and pick the licensecontaining the required number. Once the EIOC is configuredone DST license will be consumed per LDT, with the type beingdetermined based on the highest value configured in the LDT(except for the EtherNet/IP Control Tag Integration Protocol).For the EtherNet/IP Control Tag Integration protocol,one DST license is consumed per Control Tag. The DST license isconsumed based on the type of Control Tag that is configured.PRP does not require a license, as it is included as part of theEIOC functionality.www.emerson.com/deltav6
