BCNet-FP is an economical Ethernet communication processor, which is designed to meet the increasing informatization needs of factory equipment (equipment network monitoring and production management). It is used in Panasonic FP-XH, FP-X, FP- X0, FP0, FP0R, FP2SH and other series of PLC Ethernet data acquisition are very convenient to build a production management system.
BCNet-FP adopts industrial-grade design, rail installation, and does not occupy the PLC programming port. While the host computer monitors the PLC data through Ethernet, the touch screen can communicate with the PLC through the multiplexing interface X2.
The PLC with the model FP-XH selects the BCNet-FP terminal type, and the PLC of other models selects the BCNet-FP round port.

BCNet-FP Features:

  1. BCNet-FP adopts modular design, the communication port is multiplexed, and does not occupy the PLC programming port;
  2. Parameter adaptive, plug and play, no need to write communication program;
  3. Support Ethernet program upload, download, comparison and monitoring of Panasonic programming software FPWIN GR;
  4. Support PC software Ethernet communication (Kingview, MCGS, Force Control, IFIX, INTOUCH, KepWare OPC server, etc.);
  5. Support touch screen Ethernet communication (Siemens, MCGS, etc.);
  6. Integrated ModbusTCP server, Modbus data area is automatically mapped to FP data area (support FC1, FC2, FC3, FC5, FC6, FC16);
  7. Support Panasonic ET-LAN Ethernet protocol and BCNetTCP transparent transmission;
  8. Support programming through high-level languages ​​(such as VB, VC, C#, etc.) to realize data communication with Panasonic FP;
  9. Support 6 Ethernet connections at the same time, compatible with a variety of connection methods;
  10. Special parameter configuration and testing tools;
  11. Support WEB page parameter configuration and firmware upgrade.
