BCNet-CX Rail Type

BCNet-CX is an Ethernet communication processor designed to meet the increasing informatization needs of factory equipment (equipment network monitoring and production management), and is used for Omron CPM1A/CPM2A/CQM1
The Ethernet data acquisition of the series PLC is very convenient to build a production management system.
BCNet-CX rail type is suitable for:
PLC with 20-pin interface: CPM1A/2A/CQM1 series PLC, equipped with a data transfer cable CQM1-CIF02, requires an external 24VDC power supply.
PLC with 10-pin interface: CPM2C/CQM1 and other series PLC, equipped with a data transfer cable CS1W-CN226, requires an external 24VDC power supply.

BCNet-CX features:

  1. Plug and play, BCNet-CX can directly obtain power from the PLC communication port, or external 24VDC power supply.
  2. Integrate the WEB server, through the web page, you can set the device parameters, and set the login protection password to prevent tampering with the configuration data.
  3. Automatically match PLC and HMI serial parameters without additional configuration. The PLC program does not need to be modified and set up.
  4. Integrate ModbusTCP server, support FC1, FC3, FC5, FC6, FC15, FC16, and the Modbus data area corresponds to the device address of Omron PLC.
  5. By using ModbusTCP communication protocol or port mapping, programming in high-level languages (such as VB, VC, C#, etc.) can be realized, data communication with Omron PLC can be realized, and it is convenient to develop production management system.
  6. Support firmware update on the user side through Ethernet, provide firmware with more functions for free, buy hardware once, and upgrade permanently.
