Start Profinet and Modbus on the same ethernet connection

Hi,
I would like to know if it’s possible to to enable Profinet communication while a Modbus connection is already configure.
More globally, if it’s possible to start multiple fielbus type connection.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Thomas,

It’s possible to have multiple fieldbus connections at the same time.

Great ! Thanks for the support

It’s not possible to have both Profinet and Ethernet IP at the same time nor is it possible to have multiple PLCs trying to control the robot at once. Modbus is a different story since you make each connection independently. We have multiple systems running multiple modbus devices in the field without issue. You can have Profinet/EIP and modbus at the same time as well but have to choose one of them to use.
