IEC 60870-5-104 Server Communication Module

MVI56-104S

IEC 60870-5-104 Server Communication Module

MVI56-104S

The MVI56 IEC 60870-5-104 Server Network Interface Module allows ControlLogix processors to interface easily with IEC 60870-5-104 protocol-compatible hosts. The MVI56-104S module has been designed to address applications where a device using the IEC 60870-5-104 protocol needs to communicate with a ControlLogix processor. 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 MVI56-104S module to send a report to the processor without being polled, providing real time data transmission in critical situations.

IEC 60870-5-104 Ethernet Server Network Interface Module for ControlLogix

The MVI56 IEC 60870-5-104 Server Network Interface Module allows ControlLogix processors to interface easily with IEC 60870-5-104 protocol-compatible hosts. The MVI56-104S module has been designed to address applications where a device using the IEC 60870-5-104 protocol needs to communicate with a ControlLogix processor. 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 MVI56-104S module to send a report to the processor without being polled, providing real time data transmission in critical situations.

Features and Benefits

The MVI56-104S module acts as an input/output module between the IEC 60870-5-104 Ethernet network and the Rockwell Automation backplane. The data transfer from the ControlLogix processor is asynchronous from the actions on the network. A 4000-word register space in the module exchanges data between the processor and the Ethernet network.

Applications

The MVI56-104S module has been designed to address the application where a device using the IEC 60870-5-104 protocol needs to communication with the Rockwell Automation processor. As such, the IEC server module can be used as a gateway in many SCADA installations in industries such as:

  • Power
  • Petrochemical
  • Water treatment
  • Oil and gas production
