5204SE-MNET-PDPMV1 Communication Gateways

Supplier: Prosoft Technology

Automating integration for Schneider Electric (SE) Modicon processors and maximizing ease-of-use are the hallmark design criteria behind the new ProLin SE line of communication gateways. The first SE gateway, the 5204SE-MNET-PDPMV1 Modbus TCP/IP to PROFIBUS DP-V1 Master gateway, easily turns a Modicon M340 Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) into a PROFIBUS DP-V1 Master.


PCB automatically generates customized export files based on the gateway's PROFIBUS DP network configuration. These files import into Unity Pro version 4 software without modification, eliminating the need to write additional communications message logic.

Automatically-generated Derived Function Block logic also provides advanced PROFIBUS DP-V1 acyclic message pass-through capability. Acyclic messaging allows an M340 to request extended slave data and diagnostics, as well as access slave-specific special functions.

Whenever the PROFIBUS DP network configuration changes, new logic files can be automatically created, exported, and imported into an existing project, reducing engineering demands and cutting deployment time.

The Modbus TCP/IP (MNET) driver can be used to interface many different protocols into the Schneider Electric Quantum family of processors as well other software solutions supporting the protocol. The MNET driver supports Client connections as well as Server connections.

The PROFIBUS DP Master protocol driver (PDPMV1) supports complete Master specifications according to IEC 61158 on either a Mono-Master or Multi-Master network. The module supports the DPV1 specification.

Features and Benefits

New Application Communication Logic functions for use with Modicon M340 PACs
•Designed specifically to enable a Modicon M340 PAC using Modbus TCP/IP to act as a PROFIBUS DP-V1 Master
