Modbus TCP Multi Client Enhanced Network Interface Module with Reduced Data Block for ControlLogix, MVI56E-MNETCR

Type:  I/O Interface
Description:  Improves performance when controlling multiple servers on a Modbus TCP 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. 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.
Connectivity:  Modbus TCP
Features:  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; Communication 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; 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; Allows support of IT and Automation network segmentation; Web-enabled Ethernet port; 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 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
