*1. In this case, pps means "packets per second" and indicates the number of packets that can be processed in one
       second.
*2. When using the EtherNet/IP Unit with version 3.0 or later. When using the EtherNet/IP Unit with version
       2.1 or earlier, the maximum allowed communications bandwidth per Unit is 6,000 pps. When using the EtherNet/IP
       Unit with version 3.0 or later, the Network Configurator with version 3.57 or higher is required.
*3. Network symbols can be used only by the NJ501-[][][][], NJ301-[][][][], CJ2H-CPU6[]-EIP and CJ2M-CPU3[].
*4. To use 505 to 1,444 bytes as the data size, the system must support the Large Forward Open standard (an optional
       CIP specification). The CS/CJ-series Units support this standard, but before connecting to nodes of other companies,
       confirm that those devices also support it.
*5. If the maximum data size is exceeded, the data refreshing with the CPU Unit will extend over two or more cycles.
*6. If status layout is selected in the user settings, the maximum number of tags that can be received is 19 tags.
*7. If parameters are changed in the EtherNet/IP Unit, however, the EtherNet/IP Unit will be restarted. When other nodes
       are communicating with the affected node, the communications will temporarily time out and automatically recover
       later.
*8. Because the EtherNet/IP Unit is equipped with an IGMP client, unnecessary multicast packets can be filtered by using
       a switching hub that supports IGMP snooping.
*9. The EtherNet/IP Unit uses the TCP/UDP port numbers shown in the following table.

Network Configurator Requirements

The Network Configurator Ver. 3.0 or higher is a software package designed for building, setting, and controlling a multi-vendor EtherNet/IP Network using OMRON's EtherNet/IP. It is included in CX-One version 3.0. The Network Configurator provides the following functions for building, setting, and controlling EtherNet/IP.
