You are here: / / Can an Ethernet/ip network have more than 1 Master/Scanner
Sorry if this question is obvious. I couldnt find the answer online in a reasonable amount of time, so I figured it best to ask at the fountain of all things EIP ;-).
Have a new project on the books and looking at the best control network to use. I found info regarding Profinet allowing multiple controllers/Masters, I also found info regarding EtherCAT allowing multiple masters, but I could not find info on EIP allowing multiple Master/Scanners.
So – Can EIP networks be configured with Multiple Masters. Say a SCADA PC and HMI reading from and writing to All Slaves and Masters on the EIP. But also a PLC Master/Scanner, reading and writing to all Slaves?
I believe the answer is yes it can, but wanted to make sure.
