The MVI46 Modbus Plus Dual Port Network Interface Module allow Rockwell Automation SLC processors to connect directly on Modbus Plus networks as a peer. The module acts as an input/output module between the Modbus Plus network and the processor. Compatible devices can be found in most industries and include devices such as drives, relays and power monitor hardware.

  • Applications using the Modbus Communication Module can be found in many industrial sectors and in the following applications
  • Mining
  • Foreign device data concentrator
  • Food processing
  • Pipelines and offshore platforms
  • Pulp and paper
  • 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
  • Single Slot - 1746 backplane compatible (Local or extended I/O rack only. Remote rack not supported)
  • Ladder Logic is used for data transfer between module and processor. Sample ladder file included
  • Configuration data obtained from configuration text file downloaded to module. Sample configuration file included
Server Specifications
  • Supports EtherNet/IP explicit, connected, and unconnected class messaging
  • Data can be derived from other clients on the network, through the client on the module, or from the SLC processor
  • Twenty independent server connections permit remote clients to interact with all data contained in the module
General Specifications

Functional Specifications
  • Rockwell Automation 5/02/03/04 processors with DH-485 or DH+ network connections to co-exist with EtherNet/IP network
  • A retry count of 0 to 20
  • Status data available in ladder logic
  • Support for SLC processor programming over Ethernet using a TCP/IP service and a serial port on the module connected to channel 0 of the processor. The module's third port emulates Channel 0 of the processor to pass through messages from the port to the processor
  • User-definable module memory usage
  • A minimum response delay of 0 to 65535 mSec
  • Functions as a server or a client
  • A response timeout of 1 to 65535 mSec
  • Support of up to 4000 SLC registers user data files
  • Configurable parameters for the client include:
  • SLC 5/05 in-chassis EtherNet/IP bridge to optimize data throughput while communicating with MMI or SCADA and other control platforms without losing valuable process control bandwidth
  • 10/100 MB Ethernet compatible interface
Client Specifications
  • TCP/IP service and a serial communication port (pass-through port) on the module
  • A PC with RSLogix 500, RSLinx, and a TCP/IP service on the network can remotely program the SLC
  • Allows command control from ladder logic
  • Actively issues connected, explicit messages to other nodes on the network
  • Supports 100 user-defined commands from a single client
  • The third port on the module can emulate the Channel 0 port on the SLC. This allows a DF1 master device attached to the emulated (Channel 0) port to monitor and control data in the SLC.
  • Permits remote programming of the SLC processor on the Ethernet network via a pass-through
  • Pass-through services
  • Compatible devices include not only Modicon PLCs (most of which support the Modbus Plus protocol) but also a wide assortment of end devices licensed through the ModConnect Program. The MVI46-MBP module acts as an input/output module between the Modbus Plus network and the Rockwell Automation backplane. The data transfer from the SLC processor is asynchronous from the actions on the Modbus Plus network. A 4000-word register space in the module exchanges data between the processor and the Modbus Plus network.
  • Crossing all industrial boundaries, potential applications include the connection of Rockwell Automation processors to Modicon processors, and the connection of Modbus Plus-speaking devices, such as drives, relays, and power monitor hardware, to the Rockwell Automation backplanes.
  • These modules allow Rockwell Automation platforms to connect directly on Modbus Plus networks as a peer. In addition, the modules act as slaves to processors that must read/write data from the module's memory.
