Can I use 2 AN-X-MOD gateways running as scanners in a redundant application?

Search KB


The AN-X-Mod gateway can be used in a redundant scanner application with the following considerations:

    1)  They cannot operate on completely separate S908 networks.  They need to share the same physical media so that they are able to monitor the network for the presence of a Scanner.

    2)  The AN-X-Mod gateways have built-in termination so they need to be connected to the Modicon splitter.

    3)  It can be used in a regular ControlLogix application or in conjunction with a redundant ControlLogix application.
