Modbus TCP Client/Server Enhanced Network Interface Module with Reduced Data Block for ControlLogix, MVI56E-MNETR

Type:  I/O Interface
Description:  The MVI56E-MNETR uses a reduced I/O data image block size for transferring data between itself and a ControlLogix processor. This makes it ideal for remote rack applications using ControlNet or EtherNet/IP process networks. The module also works well for applications that require redundant ControlLogix processors.
Connectivity:  Modbus TCP
Features:  Backward-Compatible; Upgrade earlier MVI56-MNETR modules without changing existing ladder logic programs or module configurations; Enhanced features and flexibility without incurring reprogramming costs; RSLogix 5000 integrated; Module communication is integrated within RSLogix 5000 using a sample Add-On Instruction (AOI) or sample ladder logic file; No additional programming and/or configuration software required; Reduced I/O Image Size; Uses less bandwidth on process control networks like ControlNet or EtherNet/IP; Optimizes communication for more efficient remote rack installations, especially with redundant ControlLogix processors; Graphical User Interface Software; ProSoft Configuration Builder (PCB) provides online or offline configuration and online diagnostics using high-speed Ethernet port; CIPconnect-enabled, allows remote configuration and diagnostic 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's built-in Ethernet port provides a web server for local access to documentation, module status, and firmware updates; ProSoft Discovery Service, a software utility to locate MVI56E modules on the network and assign a temporary IP address for easy configuration
Specifications:  Single-Slot 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; Reduced I/O image size designed specifically to optimize remote rack implementations; ProSoft Configuration Builder (PCB) software supported; Windows-based graphical user interface providing simple product and network configuration; Sample ladder logic and Add-On Instructions (AOIs) 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 temporary IP address; Personality Module - a non-volatile, industrial-grade Compact Flash (CF)card used to store network and module configuration, allowing quick in-the-field product replacement by transferring the CF card
