I am using node-red-contrib-cip-ethernet-ip. There is no string type nor SINT array.
It appeared that there were 2 nodes that can do the string:
node-red-contrib-cip-ethernet-ip-strings-mfgx and node-red-contrib-rockwell
But they are no longer available. Any pointer? Thank you.
I can't install it from Pallette, it's said 'conflict'.
If I am not mistaken, the cip-etheret-ip was built on st-ethernet-ip
OK. I uninstalled *
Using npm, I installed the latest version of 'st-ethernet-ip' which is v2.67 from here: st-ethernet-ip - npm.
Is it possible to use it in node-red? There is no palette icon for it.
Not sure why you did that?
That is not a Node-RED node package (its just an npm module).
Why did you not just install the
node-red-contrib-cip-st-ethernet-ip package as i instrcuted?
In theory, had you followed option 2 as I wrote it, your existing flows would all simply just work (since
node-red-contrib-cip-st-ethernet-ip are almost identical & most likely 100% compatible - they are built from the the same source, except the
node-red-contrib-cip-st-ethernet-ip is newer and supports strings as per your requirement!)
My thought was to get the latest version with more features like UDT, array ... bug fixes.
The site also shows a lot of good examples of JS that I thought I can copy & paste into a function node.
