The ETH-FX-2P module is an economical Ethernet communication processor, which can realize most of the PLC network communication functions of the Mitsubishi FX series, and remotely upload, download and monitor the PLC through the upper computer software.
The module comes with two serial ports, one is connected to the PLC and the other is connected to the touch screen.The operator can operate the touch screen to simultaneously perform data collection and monitoring on the PLC.
➤ No external power supply is required, power can be directly supplied from the S8 programming communication port of FX
➤ Extend an RS422 port of the PLC to an Ethernet communication port and a touch screen communication port to restore the PLC communication function while realizing PLC networking and communication with the touch screen
➤ The parameter setting and operation of the equipment can be carried out through the WEB server
➤ Automatically adjust the baud rate of the FX programming communication port, which can meet the needs of large data communication
➤ Support Ethernet communication of MELSOFT products (GX Works2, GX Developer, etc.)
➤ The power circuit adopts anti-reverse connection design
➤ Widely used for signal acquisition and control of industrial field equipment
I. Applicable Scene:
①Extend an RS422 port of the PLC to an Ethernet communication port and restore a programming port (usually used for HMI touch screen communication). ETH-FX-2P is suitable for scenarios that need to communicate with network port devices;
②Expand one RS422 programming port of PLC into two programming ports
II. Communication Setting:
The principle of communication with our 3U network port is the same, please refer to the MC communication in Appendix C of the 3U manual; in addition, the upper computer made by the customer must conform to the MC 1E frame protocol, MODBUS
TCP communication is temporarily not supported;
Provide 4 port numbers: 5551, 5552, 5553, 5555, one port can only be connected with one network port, a module is recommended to have at most two ports at the same time communication link is relatively stable.
