Description

‘C’ Programmable Application Development Module with Ethernet for SLC

The MVI46 Application Development Ethernet Communication Module is an SLC backplane compatible module that allows SLC processors to interface easily with Ethernet protocol compatible devices and hosts utilizing custom ‘C’ code.

Features and Benefits

The ADMNET solution is a powerful module designed with both Client and Server support. This broad support enables the module to function as a data collection sub-master, or to be a powerful slave as a remote off an HMI host. Applications for the module are found in most industries, especially Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food processing.

The MVI46-ADMNET 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 and one Ethernet port allowing the many field devices to be integrated into the SLC platform with custom user written ‘C’ code and various APIs supplied for Ethernet, serial and backplane communication.

Applications

The MVI46-ADMNET module is the ideal solution for many applications where Ethernet and serial connectivity must be added to an SLC platform. Applications using the MVI46-ADMNET 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

Applications

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

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

Functional Specifications

The MVI46-ADM API Suite allows software developers access to the top layer of the SLC backplane and serial ports. The MVI46-ADMNET API suite accesses the Ethernet port and serial ports.

Both APIs can be easily used without having detailed knowledge of the module’s hardware design. The Ethernet Port API provides access to the Ethernet network. Applications for the MVI46-ADMNET module may be developed using industry-standard DOS programming tools and the appropriate API components.

The MVI46-ADMNET module has three serial ports, two of which are isolated for field interfaces, and one Ethernet port.

  • CFG — debug/configuration — RS-232
  • PRT1 — Application — RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485
  • PRT2 — Application — RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485
  • Ethernet Port

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