BCNet-FP-S is used for Ethernet data acquisition of Panasonic FP-XH, FP-X, FP-X0, FP0, FP0R, FP2SH series PLC, which is very convenient to build a production management system. The module integrates the WiFi function, supports AP mode, STA mode and AP+STA mode, which is very convenient to build a WiFi network, and perform PLC programming and data collection directly through WiFi.
BCNet-FP-S adopts plug-and-play design and does not occupy the PLC communication port, that is, while the programming software/host computer software monitors the PLC data through Ethernet, the touch screen can communicate with the PLC through the multiplexing interface, supporting the industrial control field. Most SCADA software supports Panasonic Ethernet protocol and ModbusTCP communication method.
There are two types of BCNet-FP-S round mouth and BCNet-FP-S terminal. FP-XH chooses BCNet-FP-S terminal, and other types of PLC choose BCNet-FP-S round mouth.

BCNet-FP-S function

  1. Installed on a 35mm guide rail, no external power supply required. The COM1 port is connected to the round port or terminal of the PLC, and the COM2 expansion port is used for touch screen communication.
  2. Through the WEB server or the configuration diagnostic tool BCDevice, the device can be parameterized and run diagnostics.
  3. Automatic identification of PLC model, automatic matching of PLC and HMI serial parameters, without additional configuration.
  4. Integrated WiFi function, support AP mode, STA mode and AP+STA mode.
  5. PLC programming and data acquisition can be performed through WiFi.
  6. Realize Ethernet communication with Panasonic programming software FPWIN GR.
  7. Support Panasonic ET-LAN Ethernet protocol communication, support access to host computer software (KepWare OPC server, etc.).
  8. Integrated ModbusTCP server, support FC1, FC2, FC3, FC5, FC6, FC16, Modbus data area is automatically mapped to PLC data area.
  9. Using ModbusTCP, it can realize high-level language (such as VB, VC, C#, etc.) programming, realize data communication with PLC, and facilitate the development of production management system.
  10. The SCADA (upper configuration software) that supports OPC channel communicates with PLC in OPC mode.
  11. It can realize FPWIN GR, ET-LAN, ModbusTCP connection modes at the same time, and support the connection of 32 upper computers.
  12. Support firmware update on the user side through Ethernet, one purchase, permanent upgrade.
