Control through Ethernet/IP

Question: Can the UR Ethernet/IP be used to control job calls on Fanuc CNC controller? Trying to verify that a UR Controller is able to be the master for an operator to call up a part number from the UR pendant and not select anything on the CNC software.

The UR Controller acts as an Adapter (slave) over Ethernet IP, so you would either need your CNC controller to have Scanner (master) functionality, or have a separate Scanner device in between to manage the connection.
