7.1 About the LAN (Ethernet Communication) Port
Ethernet communication port supports 100BASE-TX / 10 BASE-T.
This port is used for two different purposes.
Connection with development PC
LAN (Ethernet communication) port is used for connection of the Controller and the
Equivalent operation is available to connect between the Controller and the
development PC with the development PC connection port.
(Refer to Setup & Operation 5. Development PC Connection USB Port)
Connection with other Controller or PC
The LAN (Ethernet communication) port can be used as an Ethernet (TCP/IP)
communication port to communicate between multiple controllers from robot
RC700: DUOUT connector / RC700-A: OUT connector is not a LAN (Ethernet
communication) port. Do not connect a cable.
7.2 IP Address
Set the proper IP address or subnet mask depending on the Controller and development PC
configuration to use the LAN port.
Do not input a random value for the IP address of the network configured TCP/IP. This
is the only address that specifies the computer using an Internet connection.
The IP address is assigned from the company or organization that has control of IP
