Equipment and Software Needed

  • MLC 9000 BCM with Modbus and appropriate number LCM’s
  • AB SLC 5/03 CPU or higher, Power Supply and Rack
    • 5/03 is smallest CPU to support M0/M1 file transfer
  • ProSoft MCM3150 Modbus Communications Card
  • RSLogix 500 Programming Software for SLC500
  • Programming Cable for SLC500
  • West.RSS Driver File
  • Communication Cable between MLC9000 and MCM3150 Card
slc500 backplane communications basics
SLC500 Backplane Communications Basics
  • SLC 500 is a modular PLC
    • Racks can be configured with a wide variety of modules
  • PLC CPU receives information from modules in rack via one of two ways
    • I/O Transfer
      • Used with Analog or Digital I/O Modules where small amounts of information are being passed
    • Block Transfer via M0/M1 Files
      • Used for large blocks of data
      • M0/M1 files are local to the module
      • Information must be transferred form M0/M1 files into usable registers
        • Process is known as Block Transfer
