Modbus TCP/IP Multi Client Network Interface Module for SLC

MVI46-MNETC

 

The MVI46 Modbus TCP/IIP Multi Client Network Interface allows Rockwell Automation SLC processors 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 devices.

 

Features and Benefits

This module was created to improve the performance when servers are not needed on a Modbus TCP/IP network. The module supports up to 30 clients with up to 16 commands for each client, making it easy to enable/disable the commands from the ladder logic. The client command control word contains one bit for each command.

Some of the other features include:

  • Support for the storage and transfer of up to 5000 registers to/from the SLC processor’s controller tags
  • User-definable module memory usage
  • 10/100 Base-T Ethernet compatible interface
  •  Configurable parameters for the client include:
    • Minimum Command Delay
    • User Defined Commands (Read/Write)
