Description

‘C’ Programmable Application Development Module for SLC

The MVI46 Application Development Module is an SLC backplane compatible module that allows user-developed ‘C’ applications to operate on the SLC platform. A great way to speed up custom ASCII data communications or to protect a proprietary algorithm, the ADM is a powerful tool for the SLC platform.

Features and Benefits

Powerful platform for developing and running ‘C’ applications on Rockwell Automation’s SLC processors. The MVI46-ADM module is a single slot, backplane compatible solution for the SLC platform. This module is a powerful and programmable solution supporting two fully isolated serial ports allowing the many serial field devices to be integrated into the SLC platform.

The MVI46-ADM module has three serial ports, two of which are isolated for field interfaces:

  • CFG: Debug/configuration RS-232
  • PRT1: Application RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485
  • PRT2: Application RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485

PRT1 and PRT2 are jumper configured for direct or multi-drop field communication. The application program can be written to control the two application ports independently, allowing maximum flexibility in the design.

Applications

The MVI46-ADM module is the ideal solution for many applications where serial connectivity must be added to a SLC platform. Applications using the MVI46-ADM module:

  • Bar code scanner interface
  • Legacy ASCII protocol connections
  • Terminal port emulation
  • Printer driver (alarm/status printer)
  • Customized protocol implementations

Specifications

  • Single Slot – 1746 backplane compatible (Local or extended I/O rack only. Remote rack not supported)
  • The module is recognized as an Input/Output module and has access to processor memory for data transfer between processor and module using M0/M1 files
  • Ladder Logic is used for data transfer between module and processor
  • Configuration data obtained through user-defined ladder. Sample ladder file included
