The ProSoft Technology MVI56E Modbus TCP/IP Communication Module is designed to allow ControlLogix processors to interface easily with other Modbus TCP/IP protocol-compatible devices.
Compatible devices include not only Modicon processors (which support the Modbus TCP/IP protocol) but also a wide assortment of other clients and server devices.
Features and Benefits
The MVI56E-MNET module is a single slot solution that provides a powerful connection between Rockwell Automation’s ControlLogix processor and Modbus TCP/IP network applications.
The TCP/IP Modbus network applications include those networks hosted by Modicon Quantum processors, networks controlled by operator interface software packages, and the growing number of manufactured devices that support this protocol. The MVI56E-MNET module acts as an input/output module between the Modbus TCP/IP network and the Rockwell Automation backplane. The data transfer from the processor is asynchronous from the actions on the Modbus TCP/IP network. A 5000-word register space in the module exchanges data between the processor and the Modbus TCP/IP network.
Support for the storage and transfer of up to 5000 registers to/from the ControlLogix processor using the block transfer or side-connect interface
User-definable module memory usage
10/100 MB Ethernet compatible interface
Configurable parameters for the client including a minimum response delay of 0 to 65535 mSec and floating point support
