MVI56 PROFIBUS DPV1 Master Communication Module

Supplier: Prosoft Technology

The MVI56 PROFIBUS DPV1 Master Communication Module is a powerful communication interface for ControlLogix platform processors. Developed under license from Rockwell Automation, the module incorporates proprietary backplane technology that enables powerful data exchange with ControlLogix processors.

Price Guide: POA

Features and Benefits
The module supports complete Master specifications according to IEC 61158. Acyclic parameter data can be transferred with Class 1 or Class 2 DPV1 services, allowing processors to easily communicate with slave devices supporting PROFIBUS DPV0/V1 protocol.

The module acts as an input/output module between the PROFIBUS network and the ControlLogix processor. Data transfer from the processor is asynchronous with the I/O data transfer on the PROFIBUS network.

ProSoft Technology offers a wide range of PROFIBUS connectivity solutions for all Rockwell Automation platforms including wire and wireless stand-alone gateway products.

ProSoft Technology's PROFIBUS DP Communication Module is CIPconnect(tm) enabled.

What is CIPconnect(tm) Enabled?
CIPconnect(TM) provides connectivity for a PC to the ProSoft Technology PROFIBUS module over Ethernet using Rockwell Automation's 1756-ENBT EtherNet/IP module. This allows the user to configure the PROFIBUS Master module and network, upload, download files and view network and module diagnostics from a PC.

  • Provides the freedom of accessing a ProSoft module from anywhere the Ethernet network allows.
  • Allows FDT Asset Management software to connect to devices using freely distributed communication DTM.
  • Allows for wireless type connections to the module.
  • Simplifies IT administration in supporting a single IP address per rack especially when multiple ProSoft Technology modules are required.

What else does ProSoft's PROFIBUS module do?

  • PSW-cDTM-PDPM comDTM support is included, allowing users to connect FDT or Asset Management software to a PROFIBUS network.
  • RSLinx is not required for configuration. All that is needed is an IP address and slot number.
  • PROFIBUS connectivity is also available for Rockwell Automation's CompactLogix and SLC platforms, and in stand-alone wired and wireless gateways.

With the growing usage of the PROFIBUS DPV1 protocol in the industrial marketplace, this product has a wide variety of application uses. Industries that use this technology include:

  • Power and distribution applications
  • Petrochemical
  • Water and Gas Applications
  • SCADA and DCS applications
