Generic ASCII Ethernet Interface Module

The MVI69-GEC Generic ASCII Ethernet Interface module is designed to allow CompactLogix / MicroLogix processors to interface easily with ASCII devices using the TCP/IP protocol. Compatible devices may be either ASCII instruments with built-in Ethernet or Ethernet connection via a thin server to the existing ASCII device.

Five servers and Clients are present on the module permitting both the reception and transmission of data between the Rockwell Automation processor and attached devices.

The MVI69-GEC module is a powerful communication interface for CompactLogix / MicroLogix processors. Developed under license from Rockwell Automation, the module incorporates proprietary backplane technology that enables powerful data access between the module and the CompactLogix / MicroLogix processor.

 

Features and Benefits

  • Single-slot – 1769 backplane compatible
  • The module is recognized as an Input/Output module and has access to processor memory for data transfer between processor and module
  • Ladder Logic is used for data transfer between module memory and processor controller tags. A sample ladder file with AOI is included
  • Configuration data obtained from configuration text file downloaded to module. A sample configuration file is included.
  • Supports CompactLogix and MicroLogix 1500 LRP Controllers except 1769-QBFC1B, 1769-L16x, and 1769-L18x

 

Applications

The use of the TCP/IP protocol with Ethernet at the device level on the plant floor is becoming widespread in many industry segments. Using the MVI69-GEC, the advantage of Ethernet speed is realized while allowing greater distances between networked devices.

  • Bar code scanners
  • Weigh scale interfaces
  • Legacy ASCII protocol connections
  • Terminal port emulation
  • Printer driver (alarm/status printer)
