I am trying to collect data from a data acquisition module which communicates over Ethernet IP.
So I obviously thought about the PI Connector for Ethernet IP.
Apparently, however, the connector can only collect data from IO devices attached to a PLC.
We do not have a PLC in this scenario.
I was wondering if anybody has experience in collecting data to PI straight from one module similar to that.
I am thinking I will need some kind of data gateway or protocol converter (either software or hardware).
Any ideas are welcome.
