Generic ASCII Serial Enhanced Communication Module

MVI69E-GSC

The MVI69E-GSC Generic ASCII Serial Interface Module is a fast and easy way to add two fully configurable ASCII communication ports to the CompactLogix™ / MicroLogix™ platform without consuming the front port of the processor, or using valuable processing time.

The MVI69E-GSC module is a single-slot, backplane-compatible solution for the CompactLogix / MicroLogix platform. This module has two powerful and fully configurable ASCII communication ports, each supporting the sending and receiving of large ASCII character strings.

With the implementation of some supporting ladder logic in the processor, the many different devices supporting ASCII communications can be integrated into the CompactLogix / MicroLogix platform.

Description

The MVI69E-GSC Generic ASCII Serial Interface Module is a fast and easy way to add two fully configurable ASCII communication ports to the CompactLogix™ / MicroLogix™ platform without consuming the front port of the processor, or using valuable processing time.

The MVI69E-GSC module is a single-slot, backplane-compatible solution for the CompactLogix / MicroLogix platform. This module has two powerful and fully configurable ASCII communication ports, each supporting the sending and receiving of large ASCII character strings.

With the implementation of some supporting ladder logic in the processor, the many different devices supporting ASCII communications can be integrated into the CompactLogix / MicroLogix platform.

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.
  • Supports CompactLogix and MicroLogix 1500 LRP Controllers except 1769-QBFC1B, 1769-L16x, and 1769-L18x
