Modbus TCP Multi Client/Server Enhanced Network Interface Module for ControlLogix, MVI56E-MNETC

Type:  I/O Interface
Description:  Improves performance when controlling multiple servers on a Modbus TCP network, by supporting up to 30 Clients. Also supports up to 20 server connections (10MNET, 10 MBAP). MVI56E enhancements include configuration and management through the module's Ethernet port, and CIPconnect technology for bridging though ControlNet and EtherNet/IP networks.
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 is 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; 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-MNETC 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 10,000 16-bit registers; ProSoft Configuration Builder (PCB) software supported; Windows-based graphical user interface for 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;
