Model M1580A Dual Serial NIM - 1

MAXIFLEX Dual Serial Network Interface Module Model M1580A Dual RS232/485 Programmable Network Interface Module DATASHEET FEATURES • Two Integral RS232/485 Serial Ports Each Serial Port isolated independently to 1500Vac Built in Modbus® and Conet/s protocols. Programmable for custom protocols Easy configuration using free software utility. Check availability of protocol of your choice Integrates any serial device into standard SCADA or DCS or PLC systems. The M1580A has identical functionality to the M1592A modules, but with two serial ports for higher density The M1580A Dual Serial Network Interface Module (Dual Serial NIM) is designed specifically to allow serial access to a wide range of third party serial devices in either point-to-point or multi-drop configuration using RS485. The provision of two independent serial ports allows higher density Maxiflex installations to be implemented The Dual Serial NIM comes equipped with the Conet/s protocol for peer-to-peer applications, or with Modbus Master and Slave protocols for access to a wide range of third party devices. In addition, the Dual Serial NIM supports the development of custom protocol drivers in the EziFORTH programming language. Custom protocols maybe downloaded to the module to communicate with any device equipped with a RS232 or RS485 serial port. All data is accessible by a SCADA, DCS or PLC via the Maxiflex system CPU through a 3000 register Data Interchange Table. All system configuration data and dynamic data can be read and written through this convenient table interface. Using the supplied Omniset configuration utility, advanced polling schemes may be easily set up without the need for programming. All polling and communications processing is performed in the module, unloading the Maxiflex CPU module for the more important system tasks such as control and SCADA communications. Through the use of network routing capability built into the Conet/s protocol, this NIM may form part of a larger network of networks, passing data seamlessly across different network segments transparently to the supervisory computer. The M1580A has identical functionality to the M1592A Single Serial NIM, but with the addition of a second serial port. Each serial port can be used independently with different protocols. The M1580A has a single programming space exactly like the M1592A but with access to both serial ports. Communicate with multiple devices that have a serial port, and integrate the data from this device into a DCS, PLC or SCADA system. Use MODBUS to communicate with many third party devices to integrate these devices into the SCADA, DCS or PLC system Point-to-Point Telemetry systems with analog and digital data in both directions over a serial link. Use the Conet/s protocol for full duplex peer-topeer communications with RTU’s over a serial link including fibre optic. Remote I/O for SCADA software packages incorporating third party devices. Communicate over wide area networks, integrating remote RTU’s into local systems. Copyright Omniflex ♦ Subject to change without notice
