The MVI69E-MBS Modbus Serial module for CompactLogix™ is designed for all applications requiring Modbus Serial connectivity. This module comes with an Add-on Profile and an Add-on Instruction to reduce commissioning time. The MVI69E-MBS has two serial ports and can support both Master and/or Slave connectivity to interface with a variety of devices using the Modbus Protocol.
The PLX51-PBM gateway provides connectivity to EtherNet/IP™ networks for PROFIBUS DP networks by operating as either a Master or Slave device on the PROFIBUS DP network.
For easy integration to a Rockwell Automation Controller, the gateway and configuration software create dynamic AOI’s based on the user configuration to add logical tag names to the PLC project file. Thus, reducing the overall programming time.
With advanced tools such as PROFIBUS device discovery and a built-in PROFIBUS DP packet capture utility, PROFIBUS DP network commissioning time can be greatly reduced.
Dual Ethernet ports of the module can support either DLR (Device Level Ring) topology or can be used as an embedded switch for flexible installation options.
