The IP address of the controller can be set automatically or manually. The IP address is assigned to the controller when you have connected PLCnext Engineer to the controller, see Connecting to the controller.

Setting the IP address automatically

  • Select automatic in the IP address assignment mode drop-down list.

PLCnext Engineer automatically assigns an IP address to the controller from the set IP address range (see Setting the IP address range) as soon as a connection to the controller is established (see Connecting to the controller).

Setting the IP address manually

  • Select manual in the IP address assignment mode drop-down list.
  • Enter the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway in the respective input fields.

PLCnext Engineer assigns the manually set IP address to the controller as soon as a connection to the controller is established (see Connecting to the controller).

If you are using an SD card, the IP address will be stored there. In the event of a device replacement, the IP address will then be adopted by the new controller when the SD card is inserted.
