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 (Inc GST): 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
