DL05/06 Data Communications Module





Data Communications Module
$146.00
(D0-DCM)


The D0-DCM Data Communications Module offers two communication ports for a variety of simultaneous communications possibilities:


Extra communications ports to connect a PC, operator interface, etc.
Network interface to DirectNET
Network interface to a MODBUS� network using the RTU protocolThe top RJ12 RS232 port can be used for PLC programming, connection to an OI panel or as a single DirectNet or K-sequence slave. The 15-pin front port can be used for either RS232/422/485 communications and supports the following protocols: K-sequence slave, DirectNet master/slave, MODBUS RTU master/slave.

Extra communication ports
If additional communication ports are needed, they can easily be added by installing DCM modules. This allows additional connections of devices, such as operator interfaces, PCs, etc.

DirectNet network interface
The DCM can be used as a network interface for applications requiring data to be shared between PLCs, or between PLCs and an intelligent device such as a host PC. The DCM connects easily to DirectNET.

MODBUS RTU interface
The DCM can be used as a master or slave station interface to connect your DL05/06 system to a MODBUS� network using the MODBUS RTU protocol. Port 2 on the DCM allows the DL05/06 to function as a MODBUS RTU network master or slave using RS-422 or RS-485 communications (RS-232 can be used for single slave networks).

DL05/06 Ethernet Communication Modules





Ethernet Communications Module
$216.00
(H0-ECOM100)



H0-ECOM100 Modules
The H0-ECOM100 Ethernet Communication Modules represent a price breakthrough for high-speed peer-to-peer networking of PLCs. No longer are you forced to designate a single PLC to be the network master. Any PLC can initiate communications with any other PLC. PLC-to-PLC communications are accomplished using Read from Network (RX) and Write from Network (WX) instructions.

The ECOM modules slide into any option card slot of any DirectLOGIC 05 (DL05) or DirectLOGIC 06 (DL06) PLC. Use Category 5 UTP cables which can be run up to 100 meters between nodes. Use repeaters to extend distances and expand the number of nodes.
H0-ECOM100 - 100 Mega baud Ethernet Communications Module for DL05/ DL06 PLCs. 10/100 Mb with auto-detect, supports TCP/IP, UDP/IP, IPX and MODBUS TCP/IP application layer protocol.

NetEdit3 Software
Free NetEdit3 Software ships with the ECOM Module User Manual. Use NetEdit3 to set up the ECOM modules for your network. Flexible addressing allows you to use your choice of protocols and identifying methods. Assign each module a number or a name or both.

DL05/06 DeviceNET Communication Module





DeviceNET Communications Module
$100.00
(D0-DEVNETS)




D0-DEVNETS - DeviceNET slave module.
The D0-DEVNETS option card transforms any DL05 or DL06 PLC into a smart device node on your DeviceNET controller network.
The D0-DEVNETS slave module slides into the option card slot of any DL05 or DL06 PLC.


The module collects and reports all discrete I/O data to a DeviceNET master.


The module has a removable connector that makes the four-wire connection easy to implement and maintain.


It also incorporates advanced diagnostics not commonly found on traditional industrial networks.


Adds low-cost and small-footprint discrete I/O to an application requiring DeviceNET bus interface

DL05/06 Profibus Communication Module





Profibus Communications Module
$309.00
(h0-pscm)




H0-PSCM - Profibus slave communication module.
You can now add a DL05 or DL06 PLC sub-system to a Profibus controller network. The H0-PSCM module allows the DL05 or DL06 PLC sub-system to be linked with a Profibus master controller.


Profibus is a control bus that provides a common method to connect automation equipment with devices on a single network and significantly reduces hardwiring costs.


Profibus provides specifications for information exchanged between nodes, such as controller data associated with low level device and configuration parameters that are individually related to system operations.


The H0-PSCM module transfers blocks of I/O or register memory data between a Profibus master and a DL05 or DL06 PLC. The user can choose up to four blocks of data to be transferred. The data blocks can range in size from 1 byte to 32 words (64 bytes) and can be either input or output data.

Converters and Cables



The DirectLOGIC 06 (DL06) programmable logic controller (PLC) offers the following accessories for converting RS232 to RS422 or RS422/485 and for simple RS232C networking:
FA-ISOCON - Universal, isolated RS232C to RS422/ RS485 converter.
Switch selectable for ANTE (Automatic Network Transmitter Enable) or RTS/CTS handshaking, works with all DirectLogic PLC families and virtually any serial device. Isolation reduces network data problems caused by noisy environments. Power directly from the 5 V pins on most DirectLogic CPU ports, from a PLC base 24 VDC power supply, or from an external power supply. Cables and connectors to most COM ports (RJ12, DB9-female, DB25-male) provided. Integral DIN rail clamp or can be panel mounted. Manual included with product.

FA-UNICON - In-line, DB25, RS232C to RS422/ RS485 converter. Connectors provided for the D3-422-DCU and to connect a DirectLOGIC RJ11/ RJ12 RS232C port to a DB25 female RS422/ RS485 connector. Power directly from the PLC base 24 VDC supply or an external power supply. Connection to a PC RS232 COM port requires a custom cable. A pin 4-20 jumper is required on the FA-UNICON for DB9.
NOTE:The FA-UNICON provides no signal isolation, so it is not recommended for noisy industrial environments.


D0-CBL - 12 foot (3.66 m) RS232 shielded networking cable without RTS connections for DL05, D4-450, RJ12 networking ports. RJ12 6P6C to RJ12 6P6C connectors. Enables simple RS232C networking of TWO of the listed PLCs together.
