Rockwell SLC connection over DH485

I try to make a connection with a Rockwell SLC over DH485. For this connection I use the controlox ethernet driver. In RSlinx there is a topic made for this connection with the following path: ip-adress\Backplane\4\Channel\14\DH485\3. We want this connection in kepware instead of RSlinx, how do i do that?

I didn't read the whole question - disregard my previous reply

A couple options here:

 

a) Add a 1761-NET-ENI Serial to Ethernet converter and then use the Allen-Bradley Contrologix Ethernet driver in Kepware to communicate with the PLC.

b) If you have already other PLCs in your factory like Control/Compact Logix via a DH+ Gateway, the data can be routed from the SLC5/03 through those devices. Then you can use the Allen-Bradley Ethernet Driver in Kepware 

 

I recommend opening a ticket with the Kepware Technical Support team to analyze your specific set up. Here is a link to the login page where a ticket can be submitted:
