Description

IEC 60870-5-101 Master Network Interface Module for ControlLogix

The MVI56 IEC 60870-5-101 Master Network Interface Module allows ControlLogix processors to interface easily with IEC 60870-5-101 Slave devices. The MVI56-101M module interfaces up to 32 serial communication devices with the ControlLogix processor. Two communication ports on the module act as controlling devices (Masters) to interface with controlled devices on their own networks.

Each port is individually configurable. The MVI56-101M is the ideal solution for many applications where IEC-compatible devices must communicate with the ControlLogix platform. Compatible devices include relays, breakers, sub-station communication modules and other serial communication devices. Functionality of the IEC protocol is very similar to the DNP 3.0 protocol which features time stamping and True Report by Exception (TRBE). These features allow the MVI56-101M module to send a report to the processor without being polled, providing real time data transmission in critical situations.

Features and Benefits

  • The MVI56-101M module interfaces up to 32 serial communication devices with the ControlLogix processor.
  • Two communication ports on the module act as controlling devices (masters) to interface with controlled devices on their own networks.
  • Each port is individually configurable and can be set for balanced or unbalanced mode.
  • Data is exchanged between the serial network and the ControlLogix processor using the internal database contained in the module and direct control by the processor’s ladder logic.
