The MVI56E Modbus TCP/IP Multi Client Enhanced Communication Module for Remote Chassis allows Rockwell Automation ControlLogix Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs) to interface easily with multiple Modbus TCP/IP server-compatible instruments and devices. The Multi Client module improves performance when controlling multiple servers on a Modbus TCP/IP network, by supporting up to 30 clients.
MVI56E enhancements include configuration and management through the module Ethernet port, CIPconnect technology for bridging through ControlNet and EtherNet/IP networks, and has a web server to access on-board documentation, Add-On Instructions, and sample program files. This module uses a small I/O data image for transfer of data between the module and the ControlLogix processor, making it ideal for ControlNet or Ethernet applications with the module in a remote rack.
Minimizes impact to other server communications when one server device goes off-line
RSLogix 5000 Integrated
The module communication is integrated with RSLogix 5000 using a supplied Add-On Instruction (AOI) or ladder file
No additional PAC/PLC programming required
Enable/Disable commands easily from ladder logic.
Programatically enable various networked devices and their functions to support multiple applications or recipes, without having to reconfigure the module
Remotely configure and diagnose problems
Easy to use Windows-based configuration software connects through remote racks using EtherNet/IP and/or ControlNet via a 1756-EnxT and/or 1756-CNB interface module without requiring RSLinx OEM saving you money
Allows support of IT and Automation network segmentation
Web-enabled Ethernet port
The module has a built-in web server for easy access to documentation, module status, and to update firmware
MVI56 backward compatible
Assists in extending current MVI56 applications by using newer technology that supports existing MVI56 ladder logic and module configuration
Backward compatible with previous MVI56-MNETCR versions
10/100 Mbps auto crossover detection Ethernet configuration and application port
User-definable module data memory mapping of up to 5000, 16-bit registers
ProSoft Configuration Builder (PCB) software supported, a Windows-based graphical user interface providing simple product and network configuration
Sample ladder logic and Add-On Instructions (AOI) are used for data transfer between module and processor
Internal web server provides access to product documentation, module status, diagnostics, and firmware updates
4-character, alpha-numeric, scrolling LED display of status and diagnostics data in plain English - no cryptic error or alarm codes to decipher
ProSoft Discovery Service (PDS) software used to locate the module on the network and assign temporary IP address
Personality Module - a non-volatile industrial-grade Compact Flash (CF) card used to store network and module configuration for easy disaster recovery, allowing quick in-the-field product replacement by transferring the CF card
