The MVI46 Application Development Module is an SLC backplane compatible module that allows user-developed 'C' applications to operate on the SLC platform. A great way to speed up custom ASCII data communications or to protect a proprietary algorithm, the ADM is a powerful tool for the SLC platform.
The MVI46-ADM module is the ideal solution for many applications where serial connectivity must be added to a SLC platform. Applications using the MVI46-ADM module:
Printer driver (alarm/status printer)
Legacy ASCII protocol connections
Terminal port emulation
Customized protocol implementations
Ladder Logic is used for data transfer between module and processor
Single Slot - 1746 backplane compatible (Local or extended I/O rack only. Remote rack not supported)
The module is recognized as an Input/Output module and has access to processor memory for data transfer between processor and module using M0/M1 files
Configuration data obtained through user-defined ladder. Sample ladder file included
Digital Mars C++ V8.49
Compatible compiler (16-bit DOS target)
Borland C++ V5.02
Operating system: General software DOS 6-XL
CFG: Debug/configuration RS-232
PRT1: Application RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485
Powerful platform for developing and running 'C' applications on Rockwell Automation's SLC processors. The MVI46-ADM module is a single slot, backplane compatible solution for the SLC platform. This module is a powerful and programmable solution supporting two fully isolated serial ports allowing the many serial field devices to be integrated into the SLC platform.
PRT2: Application RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485
The MVI46-ADM module has three serial ports, two of which are isolated for field interfaces:
PRT1 and PRT2 are jumper configured for direct or multi-drop field communication. The application program can be written to control the two application ports independently, allowing maximum flexibility in the design.
