The Prosoft MVI56E-MCMR is an enhanced Modbus master/slave communication module with a reduced data block. It is implemented in Allen-Bradley’s PLC control systems. It provides users with the ability to use the Modbus RTU/ASCII serial communications protocol for Rockwell Automation PLCs from ControlLogix series. The Modbus RTU/ASCII serial communications protocol can be used to interface programmable logic controllers with a variety of field instruments, process measurement devices, power relays, AC drives, and many other programmable controllers. To install the Prosoft MVI56E-MCMR module, users must have an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix processor with one free slot in the rack for this Modbus module and 800 mA of power available with a 5 Volts DC backplane power source. The device also needs an additional 3 mA from a 24 Volts DC power source.
Users will also need many software components like the Rockwell Automation RSLogix 5000 (Ver. 16 or higher), RSLinx, and ProSoft Configuration Builder software that is delivered on the included CD along with the Prosoft MVI56E-MCMR module. This enhanced Modbus master/slave communication module can be stored at a temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius (-40 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit), but it can be used only at a temperature range of 0 to 60 degrees Celsius (32 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit). For data transfers between the MVI56E-MCMR and processor, sample ladder instructions or add-on instructions are used. On the upper front side of the device, there is a scrolling LED display with 4 characters for status and diagnostic messages display in plain English. This module has a CF card option to store all the user’s configuration settings. In this way, users can replace a defective module with a new one and perform a quick in-the-field transfer all the settings and data from the CF card.
