Any Rheonics device that has Ethernet/IP protocol activated can have its serial number and sensor type verified with the RSLINX classic software. To do this the Rheonics sensor must be connected to the same network as the PLC. The device will appear with a yellow question mark showcasing the IP address, sensor serial number, and sensor type below.
