ProSoft Technology Brings In-Rack Serial Connectivity to CompactLogix Processors

These in-chassis, protocol conversion modules allow CompactLogix processors to communicate with a vast array of serial protocols.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif., November 1, 2003 The ProSoft Technology MVI69 protocol conversion modules are the ideal solution for connecting Allen-Bradley's 1769 CompactLogix processors with a variety of networks including:

· DF1 Master/Slave

· Modbus Master/Slave


· DNP 3.0 Master/Slave

· IEC60870-5-101 Master

· IEC60870-5-101 Slave

· IEC60870-5-103 Master

· 'C' Programmable

These powerful in-chassis modules offer many features and benefits including:

· Cost effective modular solution

· Backplane compatibility with CompactLogix processors

· Two isolated serial ports and one debug port

· Both serial ports are individually configurable

· 57.6k baud rate

The MVI69 modules have two serial ports and one programming/status port (RS-232-only). The two serial ports are application ports allowing easy connectivity to foreign devices (RS-232/422/485) and networks, providing greater interface flexibility, reduced time and costs and simplified installation and startups.

The MVI69 modules are scheduled for release Q2-2004.

The MVI69 modules come with ProSoft's 1-year warranty and unlimited technical support. Sales are available worldwide; contact your Allen-Bradley distributor or ProSoft Technology, Inc.
