Modbus TCP Client/Server Enhanced Network Interface Module for ControlLogix, MVI56E-MNET/MNETXT
MVI56E enhancements include local and remote configuration and diagnostics through the module's Ethernet port, CIPconnect technology for bridging though 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 temps, and has a conformal coating to protect it from harsh or caustic conditions.
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 temp environments; Operates in temp 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 dignostic access across multiple bridged EtherNet/IP and ControlNet networks using Rockwell 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
Backward-compatible with previous MVI56-MNET version; 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; CIPconnect-enabled network configuration and diagnostics monitoring using ControlLogix 1756-ENxT and 1756-CNB modules and EtherNet/IP pass-through communication; 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) 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 temporary IP address; Personality Module - a non-volatile industrial-grade Compact Flash (CF)card used to store network and module configuration, allowing quick field replacement by transferring the CF card
