I noticed I can't add a Kinetix 5500 servo to the Ethernet of an ENBT module. Is this serious?

The manual states 1756-ENxT, which you would expect ENBT to be included, but it will not let me add it. If I choose an EN2T, I'm OK. Unfortunately the customer's chassis only has ENBT modules.

ENBT's don't have CIP motion capabilities. Only the ENxT cards do (EN2T, EN3T).

I had taken the "x" to include the B.

Unfortunately not, though I could see how you could come to that. Maybe "n" would have made more sense. Or the catalog number could have matched the CompactLogix line, add a M at the end for motion.

Glad I stumbled on this before Saturday. :)
