PLC Interface EtherNet IP Module

Ethernet IP Module
PLC Interface: EtherNet/IP™ Module
  • Ethernet IP Module
  • Simple interface between Orbit® and PLC using Ethernet/IP
  • ODVA conformance tested
  • Cyclic and Explicit Data



  • Connecting EtherNet/IP™ PLC to LVDT type sensors is now easy. The EtherNet/IP™ version of the PIM is a PLC compatible EtherNet/IP™ to ORBIT®3 interface module, that enable easy connections between any EtherNet/IP™ enabled controller and Solartron’s flexible ORBIT®3 digital measurement system allowing LVDT type sensors to connect to a PLC..
    The PIM makes it simple to interface a wide range of contact and non-contact linear measurement sensors, rotary encoders, temperature and pressure sensors and discrete inputs and outputs via EtherNet/IP™ .

    This stand alone, Din Rail mounted module provides one EtherNet/IP™ port and one ORBIT®3 port which can power up to ten LVDT type displacement sensors or other sensors;. This can be extended up to a maximum of 150 sensors with the use of supplementary power modules. The EtherNet/IP™ protocol driver supports the Explicit and Cyclic Messaging implementation of the protocol as a server. The EtherNet/IP™ port is a very powerful data transfer tool designed for easy connection to Rockwell Automation PLCs. Applications are found in many industries including manufacturing, automation and control, power generation and food processing.

    Combining multiple sensors using the Orbit Digital Measurement network is easy and data can be read using a Solartron readout or the Gauge Computer Software making system integration simple.


    Attention to detail in both design and manufacture of the displacement sensor ensures precision measurement throughout the linear displacement transducer's life.


    Solartron Metrology offers a large range of displacement sensors to suit multiple applications with different cable outlets (radial or axial), multiple measuring ranges, different cable types like steel braided which provides additional protection for displacement sensors that are being used in harsh environments. If you cannot find the displacement senor you need please contact your local sales office or distributor.
