ProSoft Technology Introduces DNP 3.0 Communication for ControlLogix



The ProSoft Technology MVI56-DNP module is the fastest and easiest way to add DNP 3.0 protocol support to the ControlLogix platform.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif., October 1, 2003

The MVI 56-DNP module is a single slot, backplane compatible solution for the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix platform. This module provides highly configurable support of both DNP 3.0 Master and Slave implementations (Level 2 minimum), allowing the many SCADA and field devices supporting the DNP 3.0 protocol to be integrated into the powerful ControlLogix platform.

The DNP solution has been designed to address the expanding interest in the DNP 3.0 protocol. The protocol was originally developed for the Power Utility industry and is recommended by the IEEE for RTU-IED communication applications. Additional industrial applications are quickly arising in Water/Waste Water and Oil & Gas applications.

The DNP module is ideal in SCADA applications with DNP Level 2 support. The module is fully configurable through ladder logic and has a built in debug port. It directly interfaces to RS-232, 422 or 485. A Windows based configuration tool is available.

Other features include:

Time-stamped, Report-by-Exception data is logged to a Sequence of Event image in the module for host reading

Supports Report-by-Exception and Unsolicited Responses on a Time Interval basis or on a user determined Event Count basis. Analog and Binary input points are supported.
