Newer Modbus Modules by ProSoft

ProSoft Technology provide in-chassis Modbus solutions for Rockwell Automation's ControlLogix, CompactLogix, SLC and PLC platforms. With a full line of industrial Modbus gateways that allow you to pass data from devices on networks that use over 30 different protocols. ProSoft products are available for Master and Slave Modbus Serial (RTU and ASCII), Client and Server Modbus TCP/IP and Modbus Plus protocols.

See below on how you’ll benefit from the enhanced modules that are already in place from your legacy Modbus application:   

  • The enhanced modules are configured over Ethernet instead of serial and can even be configured over the  backplane via a 1756-ENxT module. This is helpful if you have a new laptop without a serial port: No more carrying around a USB-serial tool.
  • The enhanced modules have a faster processor, so you can expect a 20 percent to 30 percent performance boost for Modbus TCP.
  • The MVI56E-MNETC and MVI56E-MCM modules now have firmware that doubles their internal database size from 5,000 to 10,000 words each. (Make sure the modules’ Add-On Instructions are updated to the latest version so you can take advantage of this increased storage!)
  • The MVI56E-MNETC now features client and server support – its legacy version was client-only. (You can access this feature by updating to the module’s latest Add-On Instruction version.)
