Dear, some time ago I tried here in Chile to connect a PLCnext AXC F 2152 to an Allen Bradley Micro850, the results were negative, I was watching the videos where they show the steps to follow to make this application and the example is with Compact Logix. Because we have had many customer inquiries about the scope of the Ethernet/IP application on PLCnext, my inquiries are as follows:

To which Allen Bradley equipment can I connect a PLCnext via Ethernet/IP?

What does it depend on that this communication can work, I mean with what other devices like Scadas, HMI or PLC can this application work?

The PLCnext functions only as an Ethernet/IP adapter and is not capable of explicit messaging. The device that connects to it needs to be an Ethernet/IP scanner capable of 256 bytes in and out via implicit messaging. We have working applications with AB CompactLogix and Proface HMI's.
