Modicon Momentum Automation Platform Communication Adaptor: 170PNT11020

The 170PNT11020 Communication Adaptor is a pivotal component within the Modicon Momentum automation platform, designed to facilitate seamless communication in industrial automation settings. Operating on the Modbus Plus protocol, this communication adaptor sets a high standard with a 1 Mbit/s transmission rate, making it a reliable choice for demanding applications.

Versatile Connectivity and Structure

As a Modbus Plus communication adaptor, the 170PNT11020 serves as a bus manager for PLC Premium and Quantum systems. Its industrial-grade structure ensures durability and resilience in challenging environments. The communication port protocol, Modbus Plus, employs a token bus method of access, supporting both peer-to-peer communication and multidrop topologies.

High-Speed Transmission and Flexible Medium

The standout feature of the 170PNT11020 is its impressive 1 Mbit/s transmission rate, ensuring rapid and efficient data exchange. Utilizing a twisted pair as the transmission support medium, this communication adaptor provides flexibility while maintaining high-speed communication.

Scalable Network Configuration

The communication adaptor supports a multidrop topology, allowing devices to connect by extension or tap-off cable. With the capability to accommodate 0 to 31 devices per segment and up to 63 devices across all segments, the 170PNT11020 offers a scalable solution for diverse automation setups.

Extended Cable Distances with Repeater Support

In scenarios requiring extended cable distances, the 170PNT11020 proves its adaptability, supporting cable distances of up to 16404.20 ft (5000 m) between devices with the use of repeaters. This feature enhances the reach and flexibility of the automation network.

Data Format and Fail-Safe Operation

Adhering to the IEC 61131-2 data format, the communication adaptor ensures compatibility and consistency in data exchange. Fail-safe options, including full-scale value, forcing to state zero, maintain value, and fallback to zero, provide a robust response in case of system failures.

Intuitive LED Signaling and Electrical Connections

For ease of monitoring and diagnostics, the 170PNT11020 is equipped with LED indicators. A green LED signifies module power-up or communication activity (MB + ACT), while red LEDs (ERR A and ERR B) indicate communication errors on networks A and B, respectively. The electrical connection is facilitated by two SUB-D 9 connectors, one for connecting the Modbus Plus network and another for the redundant Modbus Plus network, ensuring reliability and redundancy.

Robust Environmental Specifications

Certified by CSA and UL, and compliant with FM Class 1 Division 2 standards, the 170PNT11020 is designed to thrive in demanding industrial environments. With protective treatment, resistance to electrostatic discharge, and resistance to electromagnetic fields, this communication adaptor offers reliable performance in challenging conditions.

Adaptable to Varied Environmental Conditions

Operating within a wide ambient air temperature range of 32 to 140 °F (0 to 60 °C) and a storage temperature range of -40 to 185 °F (-40 to 85 °C), the 170PNT11020 remains operational in diverse climates. Additionally, it can function at altitudes up to 16404.2 ft (5000 m), ensuring adaptability to different operational environments.

In conclusion, the Modicon Momentum automation platform's 170PNT11020 Communication Adaptor combines advanced communication capabilities, flexible connectivity, and robust environmental resilience, making it an indispensable component in industrial automation applications.
