ProSoft Technology’s Modbus Communication Modules (MCMs) provide a fast and easy way to connect Modbus networks and devices to the Rockwell Automation system. Now implementation of these modules is made even easier with ProSoft Technology’s new add on instructions which condense 31 rungs of ladder logic contained in 6 ladder files into one add on instruction which can be imported directly into RSLogix 5000 Version 16. Previously configuration files had to be manually keyed or copied into RSLogix, thus opening the door for mistake. This feature saves the user valuable time at set-up and nearly eliminates the room for human error. For current users of the MVI56-MCM module, the new configuration software can be downloaded directly from the product pages.
