	Folks,

The lovely Kay Kasemir has written device support for the EtherNet/IP interface to the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix PLC.  At SSRL we have a number of projects which will be using FlexLogix PLCs (see http://www..ab.com/logix/flexlogix/).  Allen-Bradley claims there will be an EtherNet/IP communications module available in September.  Kay is reasonably sure that porting his driver will be non-trivial.

So, my questions:

  - is anybody in the EPICS community planning on using this PLC family?
  - if so, would anyone be willing to help in writing EPICS device support?
