Can the ATV 9xx drive can be placed directly within our Ethernet Remote IO main ring.?

Issue: 
Can the ATV 9xx  drive can be placed directly within our Ethernet Remote IO main ring.?

Product Line:
ALTIVAR 930

Environment:
All
 
Cause:
Altivar Process ATV 9xx and M580 ERIO

Resolution:
Today, the status quo concerning ATV9xx and RIO is as follows:
- ATV9xx can be physically connected on ERIO ring and co-exists with other RIO devices on the ring,
- However, ATV9xx does not offer full RIO features i.e.: communication with it is not synchronized with PLC cycle and non-deterministic.
- It is configurable on the PLC side as DIO-type device.
Project on ATV9xx RIO features is ongoing but, we do not know the date, when ATV9xx will have full RIO features. (such a date cannot be guaranteed today).
