The MVI69 'C' Programmable Application Development Module with Ethernet is a CompactLogix backplane compatible module that allows Rockwell Automation CompactLogix processors to interface with other Ethernet protocol compatible devices and hosts utilizing custom 'C' code.

Features and Benefits

 The ADMNET solution is a powerful module designed with both Client and Server support. This broad support enables the module to function as a data collection sub-master, or to be a powerful slave as a remote off an HMI host. Applications for the module are found in most industries, especially Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food processing.

The MVI69-ADMNET module is a single slot, backplane compatible solution for the Rockwell Automation CompactLogix platform. This module is a powerful and programmable solution supporting one fully isolated serial port, one non-isolated serial port, and one Ethernet port, allowing the many field devices to be integrated into the CompactLogix platform.

The MVI69-ADM module has two serial and one Ethernet port, one serial port is isolated for field interfaces.

  • CFG -- debug/configuration -- RS-232
  • PRT1 -- application -- RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485
  • Ethernet port


The MVI69-ADMNET module is the ideal solution for many applications where Ethernet and serial connectivity must be added to a CompactLogix platform. Applications using the MVI69-ADMNET module include:

  • Bar Code Scanner interface
  • Legacy ASCII protocol connections
  • Terminal Port Emulation
  • Printer Driver (Alarm/Status printer)
  • Customized protocol implementations


  • Single Slot - 1769 backplane compatible
  • The module is recognized as an Input/Output module and has access to processor memory for data transfer between processor and module
  • Ladder Logic is used for data transfer between module and processor.
  • Supports all CompactLogix processors: L20/L23/L30/L31/L32/L35, L43 and L45 (L43 and L45 supported with RSLogix 5000 v16.03 or later)
  • Supports MicroLogix 1500 Controller with LRP firmware version 6.0 or newer.
