inRAX® MVI56-Series Generic ASCII serial communication module is a fast and easy way to add two fully configurable ASCII communication ports to the ControlLogix platform without consuming the front port of the processor or using valuable processing time. The module is a single slot, backplane compatible solution for the Rockwell Automation ControlLogix platform. This module has two powerful and fully configurable ASCII communication ports, each supporting the sending and receiving of large ASCII character strings. With the implementation of some supporting ladder logic in the processor, the many different devices supporting ASCII communications can be integrated into the ControlLogix platform. Suitable for bar code scanner interfaces, weigh scale interfaces, legacy ASCII protocol connections, terminal port emulation, printer driver (alarm/status printer) applications.
