New and Improved Version Allen-Bradley Ethernet IP Pro Address Explorer DHCP and Bootp Server SIM-IPE

Posted by PLC Cable Inc on Sep 20, 2023

SIM-IPE Ethernet IP Pro Address Explorer DHCP and Bootp Server


Same functions as the old ones but more features. Menu contents now are dynamic and are based on the discovered device.

Now all functionality is based on the Discovery and then will be automatically routed to 3 different functions:


- Ethernet/IP

- Profinet

It replaces your computer based BOOTP/DHCP Server and will quickly assign any IP address to any industrial BOOTP or DHCP enabled control device, like Programmable Controller, PLC communication modules, smart switches and I/O adapters.

You have one of the latest units which includes Profinet support among many other new features. We had to rearrange the menus to smooth out the process. Simply select "Discover device" and you'll be presented with the options available for your particular device.

This is a quick version with just the new menu clarification.

Here is a video with the details of operation in detail.
