Do DG1 drives support Ethernet connectivity? If so, is it via an option board?

The DG1 drives have an integral Ethernet port that supports both Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP simultaneously. No option board needed for Ethernet. The Ethernet port auto-detects the protocol. It also supports 4 Ethernet connections allowing up to 4 Ethernet/IP and/or Modbus TCP masters to communicate to the DG1 simultaneously, provided only one of them is doing control.
