Fisher PROVOX ControlLogix Module

CLX-PVX

The Fisher PROVOX® module allows an Allen-Bradley® ControlLogix® processor to control PROVOX I/O devices. This module allows a phased migration approach to be used when upgrading or replacing the PROVOX controllers. The gateway provides automatic creation of the PROVOX network scan-list and generates the associated RSLogix™ 5000 tags reducing engineering effort. Monitor mode allows verification of your conversion logic using live I/O data without impacting the running legacy system. Once the new PAC is commissioned the legacy I/O can be upgraded one module or one rack at a time as scheduled downtime is available. This module minimizes the risk of excessive downtime when upgrading legacy control systems.

Features and Benefits

  • Supports PROVOX I/O bus redundancy
  • Auto-Configuration feature detects the PROVOX network cards and I/O modules, creating a scan-list that minimizes the risk of configuration error
  • Monitor mode enables testing and verification of the conversion logic before controlling physical I/O, reducing the risk of production loss due to programming errors
  • Each module supports up to 64 I/O cards
  • Supports PROVOX 20-Series Control I/O files 1 – 16 and 10-Series I/O with serial buffer card
  • Auto-Configuration feature maps the PROVOX I/O data into tags in the ControlLogix processor
  • Supports 250 words of input data and 248 words of Output data transferred on an I/O connection to an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix processor
  • Diagnostic data is transfered from the PROVOX card to the processor
  • Configuration software uses RSLinx™ to communicate to the PROVOX module
  • Add-On Instructions are provided to convert between  PROVOX % and CLX real numbers
  • 4 character scrolling LCD display showing module status
  • A multi-colored LED indicates status of the communications between the PROVOX module and the processor
  • A multi-colored LED indicates the status of the PROVOX Remote I/O network
  • Module is hot-swapable
