What does the EDS file do, and where should it be located?
The EDS file can be found on the "Verbatim Gateway / EtherNet/IP" CD shipped with your Verbatim Gateway in the "\program files\RACO\IPConfig Tool" folder, or by saving the attached file.
Before you begin PLC configuration, ensure that the EDS file is copied to the RSLogix 5000 EDS directory (as indicated by the Rockwell Automation Manual). EDS files are simple text files used by network configuration tools to help you identify products and easily commission them on a network.
To download the .EDS file from this page, right click on the "File Attachment" below and "Save link as" to the proper folder.
