The Modicon 171CCC96030 is a M1/M1E Processor Adapter that is part of the Momentum Automation platform. It is compatible with a variety of software, including ProWORX NxT V2.0, ProWORX 32, Modsoft V2.5 and above, and Concept V2.6. It relies on an Ethernet protocol for its communication port, and also contains a I/O Bus port. The Ethernet port connector on this module looks like a Modbus port connector. Do not try to use an Ethernet adapter as a Modbus unit or attempt to place a Modbus connector in an Ethernet connector. The connectors and LED indicators are shown in the following diagram.
This processor adapter contains 3 LED indicators – RUN, LAN ACT(IVE), and LAN ST(ATUS). If the RUN indicator is Green and on continuously, the CPU has received power and is solving logic. If this indicator is flashing, then there is an error pattern if the CPU is in kernel mode. If this indicator is completely off, then the CPU is not powered up or solving logic. If the LAN ACT(TIVE) indicator is continuously on OR blinking, then this indicates activity at the Ethernet port. If the indicator is off, then there is no activity detected. The LAN ST(ATUS) indicator should be continuously green during normal operation. A fast blink indicates normal Ethernet initialization at power up. Three flashes on the LAN ST indicates that no 10BASE-T link pulse is detected and the cable and hub should be checked. Four flashes indicate that a duplicate IP address is detected, and five flashes indicates that no IP address is detected. If the LAN ST is off, then there is no valid MAC address.
It is important to note that the 984LL exec used in the 171CCC96030 will not operate in a 171CCC96020.
The 171CCC96030 has a variety of web services included. It contains a data editor, rack viewer, web page loader, and web page loader software tool. Its Ethernet services include I/O scannning and Modbus TCP messaging. The processor has 544 kB of RAM and 1MB of flash memory. With ProWORX software, it can process 80 I/O words per drop. With Concept, it can process 128 I/O words per drop.
