MVI56E-MNET / MNETXT - ControlLogix Platform Modbus TCP/IP Communication Module
Battery Life Advisory
The module uses a rechargeable Lithium Vanadium Pentoxide battery to backup the real-time clock and CMOS
settings. The battery itself should last for the life of the module. However, if left in an unpowered state for 14 to 21
days, the battery may become fully discharged and require recharging by being placed in a powered-up ControlLogix
chassis. The time required to fully recharge the battery may be as long as 24 hours.
Once it is fully charged, the battery provides backup power for the CMOS setup and the real-time clock for
approximately 21 days. Before you remove a module from its power source, ensure that the battery within the module
is fully charged (the BATT LED on the front of the module goes OFF when the battery is fully charged). If the battery
is allowed to become fully discharged, the module will revert to the default BIOS and clock settings.

Note: The battery is not user-replaceable or serviceable.

1.1    What's New?
       MVI56E products are backward compatible with existing MVI56 products,
       ladder logic, and module configuration files already in use. Easily swap and
       upgrade products while benefiting from an array of new features designed to
       improve interoperability and enhance ease of use.
       ƒ Web Server: The built-in web server and web page allow access to manuals
           and other tools previously provided only on a product CD-ROM or from the
           ProSoft Technology® web site.
       ƒ ProSoft Configuration Builder (PCB): New Windows software for
           diagnostics, connecting via the module's Ethernet port or CIPconnect®, to
           upload/download module configuration information and access
           troubleshooting features and functions.
       ƒ ProSoft Discovery Service (PDS): Utility software to find and display a list
           of MVI56E modules on the network and to temporarily change an IP address
           to connect with a module's web page.
       ƒ CIPconnect-enabled: Allows PC-to-module configuration and diagnostics
           from the Ethernet network through a ControlLogix 1756-ENBT EtherNet/IP™
           module.
       ƒ Personality Card: An industrial compact flash memory card storing the
           module’s complete configuration and Ethernet settings, allowing quick and
           easy replacement.
       ƒ LED Scrolling Diagnostic Display: 4-character, alphanumeric display,
           providing English messages for status and alarm data, and for processor and
           network communication status.
       ƒ XT series for Extreme Environments: The MVI56E-MNETXT is part of the
           new XT series, designed to work at extreme temperatures and in harsh or
           caustic environments. XT series modules operate over a wider temperature
           range than the standard MVI56E series. The XT series also come with
           conformal coating to protect module components from corrosive
           environmental elements.

4.1    About the MODBUS TCP/IP Protocol
       MODBUS is a widely used protocol originally developed by Modicon in 1978.
       Since that time, the protocol has been adopted as a standard throughout the
       automation industry.
       The original MODBUS specification uses a serial connection to communicate
       commands and data between client and server devices on a network. Later
       enhancements to the protocol allow communication over Ethernet networks using
       TCP/IP as a "wrapper" for the MODBUS protocol. This protocol is known as
       MODBUS TCP/IP.
       MODBUS TCP/IP is a client/server protocol. The client establishes a connection
       to the remote server. When the connection is established, the client sends the
       MODBUS TCP/IP commands to the server. The MVI56E-MNET module works
       both as a client and as a server.
       Aside from the benefits of Ethernet versus serial communications (including
       performance, distance, and flexibility) for industrial networks, the MODBUS
       TCP/IP protocol allows for remote administration and control of devices over a
       TCP/IP network. The efficiency, scalability, and low cost of a MODBUS TCP/IP
       network make this an ideal solution for industrial applications.
       The MVI56E-MNET module acts as an input/output module between devices on
       a MODBUS TCP/IP network and the Rockwell Automation backplane. The
       module uses an internal database to pass data and commands between the
       processor and the client and server devices on the MODBUS TCP/IP network.

4.2     General Overview
        This Setup Guide shows you how to configure the MVI56E-MNET module and
        establish communication with a Modbus TCP/IP device (a Quantum processor
        with a NOE Ethernet adapter, for this example).
        The MVI56E-MNET Ethernet application port will be configured as a Modbus
        TCP/IP (MNET) Client device. The NOE Ethernet adapter will operate as a
        Modbus TCP/IP Server device, passing data to the Quantum processor. The
        MVI56E-MNET will be configured to send two MNET Client commands to the
        Modbus TCP/IP Server device:
        ƒ Write 10 words (Modbus Function 16 - Preset [Write] Multiple Registers
        ƒ Read 10 words (Modbus Function 3 -Read Holding Registers




        When you finish the steps in this Setup Guide, you will have enough information
        to set up your own application.

5.1    Physical Setup

       5.1.1 Setting Jumpers
       The Setup Jumper acts as "write protection" for the module’s flash memory. In
       "write protected" mode, the Setup pins are not connected, and the module’s
       firmware cannot be overwritten. Do not jumper the Setup pins together unless
       you are directed to do so by ProSoft Technical Support.
       The following illustration shows the MVI56E-MNET jumper configuration.




       Note: If you are installing the module in a remote rack, you may prefer to leave the Setup pins
       jumpered. That way, you can update the module’s firmware without requiring physical access to
       the module.

       5.1.2 Install the Module in the Rack
       If you have not already installed and configured your ControlLogix processor and
       power supply, please do so before installing the MVI56E-MNET module. Refer to
       your Rockwell Automation product documentation for installation instructions.

       Warning: You must follow all safety instructions when installing this or any other electronic
       devices. Failure to follow safety procedures could result in damage to hardware or data, or even
       serious injury or death to personnel. Refer to the documentation for each device you plan to
       connect to verify that suitable safety procedures are in place before installing or servicing the
       device.

       After you have checked the placement of the jumpers, insert the MVI56E-MNET
       into the ControlLogix chassis. Use the same technique recommended by
       Rockwell Automation to remove and install ControlLogix modules.
       You can install or remove ControlLogix system components while chassis power
       is applied and the system is operating. However, please note the following
       warning.

       Warning: When you insert or remove the module while backplane power is on, an electrical arc
       can occur. An electrical arc can cause personal injury or property damage by:
       ƒ sending an erroneous signal to your system’s actuators causing unintended machine motion
            or loss of process control
       ƒ causing an explosion in a hazardous environment
       Verify that power is removed or the area is non-hazardous before proceeding. Repeated electrical
       arcing causes excessive wear to contacts on both the module and its mating connector. Worn
       contacts may create electrical resistance that can affect module operation.

       9      Align the module with the top and bottom guides, and then slide it into the
              rack until the module is firmly against the backplane connector.

       10 With a firm, steady push, snap the module into place.
       11 Check that the holding clips on the top and bottom of the module are securely
          in the locking holes of the rack.
       12 Make a note of the slot location. You must identify the slot in which the
          module is installed in order for the sample program to work correctly. Slot
          numbers are identified on the green circuit board (backplane) of the
          ControlLogix rack.
       13 Turn power ON.

       Note: If you insert the module improperly, the system may stop working, or may behave
       unpredictably.


       Note: When using the MVI56EMNETXT, you must use the 1756-A5XT or 1756-A7LXT chassis.



       5.1.3 Connect your PC to the Module
       With the module securely mounted, connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the
       CONFIG (E1) Port, and the other end to an Ethernet hub or switch accessible from
       the same network as your PC. Or, you can connect directly from the Ethernet
       Port on your PC to the CONFIG (E1) Port on the module.

       5.1.4 Set Temporary IP Address

       Important: ProSoft Configuration Builder locates MVI56E-MNET modules through UDP broadcast
       messages. These messages may be blocked by routers or layer 3 switches. In that case, ProSoft
       Discovery Service will be unable to locate the modules.
       To use ProSoft Configuration Builder, arrange the Ethernet connection so that there is no router/
       layer 3 switch between the computer and the module OR reconfigure the router/layer 3 switch to
       allow the routing of the UDP broadcast messages.

       In the sample configuration, a Modbus Write Command is present, but disabled.
       To enable this command, change the ENABLE field from No to YES, as shown in
       the following illustration.




       Notes:
       ƒ Func 16 represents Modbus Function Code 16, the command code to Preset (Write) Holding
           Registers
       ƒ The DEVADDRESS parameter is 0-based so 400 = 400401, 401 = 400402, and so on.
       ƒ The ENABLE code must be set to 1 to enable the command (0 = disable).
       ƒ The destination Slave node address must be set as 1 (Node parameter)

       Check Write Data
       The following steps show you how to verify that the WriteData Command is
       working.
       1 In RSLogix, navigate to the processor controller tags
          MNET.DATA.WRITEDATA[0] through MNET.DATA.WRITEDATA[9].
       2 For words [0] through [9], enter the numbers shown in the following
          illustration.




              This action sends the values you entered to the MODBUS CLIENT 0 on the
              MVI56E-MNET, and then to the Quantum processor, where you will be able
              to see the data in Concept.
       3      In Concept, navigate to the REFERENCE DATA EDITOR to monitor the
              processor memory addresses from 400401 through 400410. The data should
              match the data you sent from RSLogix 5000.

       Check Read Data
       The following steps show you how to verify that the ReadData Command is
       working.
       1 In Concept, navigate to the REFERENCE DATA EDITOR, and enter the following
          values in processor memory addresses from 400801 through 400810 as
          shown in the following illustration.




           This action populates the memory addresses in the Quantum processor that
           the MVI56E-MNET will attempt to retrieve with the ReadData Command.
       2   In RSLogix 5000, the values in MNET.DATA.READDATA[0] through [9]
           should match the data you entered in Concept.




       Tip: Repeat these tests, using different values each time, to verify that the same data appears in
       the proper place in each processor.
