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.
- Supports up to 30 Clients
-Faster response for multi server applications
-Reduces network traffic
-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
