The MVI56E Modbus TCP/IP Client/Server Enhanced Communication Module allows Rockwell Automation ControlLogix processors to interface easily with Modicon Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs) and a wide variety of Modbus TCP/IP-compatible instruments and devices.

MVI56E enhancements include local and remote configuration and diagnostics through the module’s Ethernet port, CIPconnect technology for bridging through Rockwell Automation ControlNet and EtherNetIP networks, and an on-board web server for access to module documentation and sample program files.

The MVI56E-MNET and MVI56E-MNETXT are functionally the same. The MVI56E-MNET is designed for standard process applications. The MVI56E-MNETXT is designed for the Logix-XT control platform, allowing it to operate in extreme environments, at higher operating temperatures, and has a conformal coating to protect it from harsh or caustic conditions.

Features and Benefits

Backward Compatibility
  • Upgrade earlier MVI56-MNET modules without changing existing ladder logic programs or module configurations
  • Enhanced features and flexibility without incurring expensive reprogramming costs
For Extreme Environments(MVI56E-MNETXT Only)
  • Conforms to the EN60079-0 and EN60079-15 standards for applications in caustic and extreme temperature environments
  • Operates in temperature extremes from -25° to 70° C (-13° to 158° F)
  • Conformal coating protects against caustic or corrosive environmental elements
RSLogix 5000 Integrated
  • Module communication is integrated within RSLogix 5000 using a sample Add-On Instruction (AOI) or sample ladder logic file
Graphical User Interface Software
  • ProSoft Configuration Builder software (PCB) provides online or offline configuration and diagnostics using high-speed Ethernet port
  • CIPconnect-enabled, allows remote configuration and diagnostic access across multiple bridged EtherNet/IP and ControlNet networks using Rockwell Automation 1756-ENxT and 1756-CNB network interface modules
Web-enabled Ethernet port with Discovery Service
  • Module Ethernet port provides a web server for local access to documentation, module status, and firmware update software
  • ProSoft Discovery Service, a software utility to locate MVI56E modules on the network and assign a temporary IP address for easy configuration
