The CNOE-800 is a Ethernet and serial option module for Schneider Automation's TSX Compact PLC. It takes advantage of the new Compact communication channel. The module gives the Compact an Ethernet port and two serial ports. It has many of the capabilities of the original CNOE-211 plus many others.
The CNOE-800 is simultaneously a router, and a protocol converter. Internally, the CNOE-800 has 4 ports: the Ethernet port, the two serial ports, and the PLC "port" (via backplane comms). The Ethernet port speaks Modbus/TCP and SY/MAX 802.3 protocols as both client and server. The serial ports speak Modbus RTU or ASCII (master or slave), SY/MAX, PLOGIC, RNIM, mixed Modbus/SY/MAX, and others. Messages from any of the four ports can be routed out any other port. As messages move between the ports they are translated from one protocol to another. Using an MSTR instruction, the PLC can issue:
External Ethernet devices can use Modbus/TCP or SY/MAX 802.3 to:
An I/O scanning table allows the CNOE-800 to read and write Modbus/TCP devices over Ethernet. This table is confiugred via PC software (included) or MSTR instructions.
The two serial ports have RJ45 connectors and are independently swich-selectable RS-232 or RS-422/485. Ports are independently configurable as to mode, baud rate, and etc. External serial devices can:
IP configuration can occur over Ethernet via BOOTP or DHCP or from the PLC via MSTR or conifg extensions*, or from the serial port using Modubs or SY/MAX protocol. Multiple CNOEs can work in a single rack. No web pages are served by this module. Modules come with a user manual and configuration software on CD, 1-year warranty and 1-year free firmware upgrades.
