Allen Bradley SLC 500 Communication Modules

Communication Modules

You will need to ascertain what your communication requirements are going to be, which will help you to select the proper communication modules for your system. Processors used in the SLC 500 PLC system communicate across the 1746 backplane, contained in the chassis, to the various Input/Output modules in the system. The different processors have a variety of communication ports on board for communication with other processors and computers. These varied communication ports will be part of the criteria you will use in selecting the right processors for your system. Every processor in the SLC 500 series has one or two built-in ports for direct communication with EtherNet/IP, DH+, DH-485, or RS-232 (DFI, ASCII, or DH-485 protocols).

Additionally, separate modules can be incorporated into the system's design to provide other communication ports within the system. Modules for ControlNet and Universal Remote Input/Output links are an option, as well as I/O adapter modules to interface I/O modules with scanner ports in remote locations. The Communication Modules available are denoted in the following table.
