PROFIBUS DP-V0 Slave Network Interface Module for SLC


The MVI46 PROFIBUS DP Slave Communication Module allows Rockwell Automation SLC I/O compatible processors to interface easily with a PROFIBUS DP Master device.

Features and Benefits

The PROFIBUS DP Slave protocol driver supports the PROFIBUS V0 Slave implementation, providing powerful data transfer capability between the module and SLC processors. User configurable data mapping and DP port operation make the interface an easy to use and powerful data transfer tool.

The MVI46 module Configuration/Debug Serial port connects a PC to the module for configuration, status, monitoring, and troubleshooting (Serial cable is included with product shipment). After editing on a PC, a configuration file is downloaded and stored on the MVI46 module.

The PROFIBUS DP Slave gives access to the unit's input and output images with up to 244 bytes of Input and Output data, for a maximum of 400 bytes total. These Input and Output data blocks are mapped by the user within the inRAx module's data memory allowing maximum flexibility and data transfer with other protocols.


The PROFIBUS DP slave interface enables Allen-Bradley SLC processors to interface with a PROFIBUS DP network. The MVI46-PDPS module is the ideal solution for many applications where connectivity to a PROFIBUS Master needs to be added to an SLC system. The PROFIBUS solution has been designed to address the expanding interest in Rockwell Automation and PROFIBUS in industrial applications such as those in the Water/Waste Water, Power and Oil & Gas industries, SCADA and DCS applications.
