Issue:
Schneider Electric drives connecting to Allen Bradley Blue Hose protocol.

Product line:
Altivar, ATV61 ATV71, ATV312, ATV12

Environment:
All models, all serial numbers

Cause:
Need to connect to Blue Hose

Resolution:
The term 'Blue Hose' is typically used with Data Highway Plus (DH+) protocol. Schneider does not offer a direct connection to that protocol in drives. Customer can use a 3rd party solution such as Anibus HMS Gateway to convert the Protocol to CANopen or Ethernet etc.
