The MVI56E Modbus TCP/IP Multi-Client Enhanced Communication Module for Remote Chassis allows Rockwell Automation ControlLogix Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs) 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 clients.

MVI56E enhancements include configuration and management through the module Ethernet port, CIPconnect technology for bridging through ControlNet and EtherNet/IP networks, and has a web server to access on-board documentation, Add-On Instructions, and sample program files.
This module uses a small I/O data image for transfer of data between the module and the ControlLogix processor, making it ideal for ControlNet or Ethernet applications with the module in a remote rack.

Features and Benefits

Supports up to 30 Clients
  • Faster response for multi-server applications
  • Reduces network traffic
  • Minimizes impact to other server communications when one server device goes off-line
RSLogix 5000 Integrated
  • The module communication is integrated with RSLogix 5000 using a supplied Add-On Instruction (AOI) or ladder file
  • No additional PAC/PLC programming required
Enable/Disable commands easily from ladder logic.
  • Programatically enable various networked devices and their functions to support multiple applications or recipes, without having to reconfigure the module
Remotely configure and diagnose problems
  • Easy to use Windows-based configuration software connects through remote racks using EtherNet/IP and/or ControlNet via a 1756-EnxT and/or 1756-CNB interface module without requiring RSLinx OEM saving you money
  • Allows support of IT and Automation network segmentation
Web-enabled Ethernet port
  • The module has a built-in web server for easy access to documentation, module status, and to update firmware
MVI56 backward compatible
  • Assists in extending current MVI56 applications by using newer technology that supports existing MVI56 ladder logic and module configuration

Specifications

  • Backward compatible with previous MVI56-MNETCR versions
  • Single-slot 1756 ControlLogix backplane compatible
  • 10/100 Mbps auto crossover detection Ethernet configuration and application port
  • User-definable module data memory mapping of up to 5000, 16-bit registers
  • ProSoft Configuration Builder (PCB) software supported, a Windows-based graphical user interface providing simple product and network configuration
  • Sample ladder logic and Add-On Instructions (AOI) are used for data transfer between module and processor
  • Internal web server provides access to product documentation, module status, diagnostics, and firmware updates
  • 4-character, alpha-numeric, scrolling LED display of status and diagnostics data in plain English – no cryptic error or alarm codes to decipher
  • ProSoft Discovery Service (PDS) software used to locate the module on the network and assign a temporary IP address
  • Personality Module – a non-volatile industrial-grade Compact Flash (CF) card used to store network and module configuration for easy disaster recovery, allowing quick in-the-field product replacement by transferring the CF card
