Rockwell Automation Remote I/O to DF1 Master/Slave Gateway 4 Port

5602-RIO-DFCM4

The ProLinx Rockwell Automation Remote I/O Adapter to DF1 Master/Slave Gateway creates a powerful connection between devices on a Remote I/O network and DF1 devices. This stand-alone DIN-rail mounted protocol gateway provides one Remote I/O port and up to four serial ports.

The RIO interface is an adapter (slave) which can be connected to a scanner (master) that controls the data transfer. The module also supports limited high speed data transfer via the Input and Output images.

The DF1 protocol driver supports Master or Slave implementations of the protocol on each DF1 port. All DF1 ports are individually configurable.

Características y Beneficios

Applications

The RIO-DFCM modules are the ideal solution for the many applications where Remote I/O connectivity can be used to integrate DF1 Master/Slave devices into a system. The Remote I/O gateway is a powerful module designed with both Client and Server support, enabling easy connection to Rockwell Automation PLCs (CLX, SLC, PLC, CPLX, and similar devices). In combination with the DF1 device support, the module provides a very powerful interface to the many DF1 devices which are in use in the industrial marketplace today. Applications for the module are found in most industries, especially the Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food Processing .

Especificaciones

Internal Database

The ProLinx module contains an internal database that consists of areas for application data, status information, and configuration information.

The internal database is shared between all ports on the module and is used as a conduit to pass information from a device on one network to one or more devices on another network.

Application Data Area

The data area is used to store and retrieve data by the protocol drivers and for data exchange between protocols. The database is used as a source for write commands to remote devices and holds data collected from the remote devices. Commands defined in the configuration file (stored in the configuration data area) control how the data is to be handled in the database.

Status Data Area

This area is used to store error codes, counters, and port status information for each port.

Configuration Data Area

This area contains module configuration information such as port configuration, network information, and command configuration. This configuration file is downloaded to, or uploaded from, this area.

Protocolos

RIO Protocol Specification


The RIO interface is an adapter (slave) which can be connected to a scanner (master) that controls the data transfer. The module also supports limited high speed data transfer via the Input and Output images.


Protocol Specifications

The RIO interface is an adapter (slave) and is connected to a scanner (master) that controls the data transfer. For example, the master/slave relationship can be accomplished using the RIO module (adapter/slave unit) with a Rockwell Automation PLC5 (scanner/master unit). Ladder logic must be programmed into a PLC to perform BTR/BTW commands to receive and transmit data between the module and the PLC. The module also supports limited high speed data transfer via the input and output images.
