Schneider Electric VW3A3616 Overview

The VW3A3616 is a communication card developed by Schneider Electric, specifically designed to facilitate Ethernet TCP/IP communication in industrial automation and control systems. With its robust features and support for various protocols, the card enables seamless network connectivity and efficient data exchange. These products are manufactured in France and are designed for Material handling, packaging, and textile machines usage. They come with a 2-year warranty from MRO Electric. We also carry Option Modules from other manufacturers such as Modicon and ABB.


At the core of the VW3A3616 card's capabilities are its communication ports, which provide compatibility with both Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP protocols. This versatility allows users to integrate the card into diverse network environments and communicate with a wide range of devices and systems. Whether it's interacting with Ethernet/IP-based devices or utilizing the popular Modbus TCP protocol, the VW3A3616 card ensures reliable and standardized communication.

To further enhance its functionality, the VW3A3616 card offers a comprehensive set of communication services. These include FTP for web server Ethernet, which enables easy file transfer capabilities over the network, enhancing the card's versatility and usability. Moreover, the card supports multiple IP addressing options, including manual configuration, BOOTP, and DHCP, offering flexibility in network setup and management.


Efficient network management is facilitated by the VW3A3616 card's SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) agent. This feature allows for centralized monitoring and control of network devices, streamlining maintenance tasks and enabling proactive troubleshooting. By integrating SNMP, the card ensures that network administrators can effectively monitor the performance and health of the connected devices.


The VW3A3616 card also excels in diagnostics and data exchange capabilities, especially in Modbus environments. It provides diagnostics for Modbus protocols, enabling users to identify and address communication issues efficiently. Additionally, it supports various Modbus functions, such as read/write multiple registers, read device identification, read holding registers, read input registers, write multiple registers, and write single registers. These functions empower users to access and manipulate data within connected devices, facilitating seamless information exchange and control.

An embedded HTTP server is another noteworthy feature of the VW3A3616 card. This allows users to set up a web server directly on the card, enabling convenient access to drive parameters, message statistics, and other essential information. By leveraging this web server functionality, users can easily configure and monitor connected devices through a web-based interface, simplifying system management and troubleshooting tasks.


The VW3A3616 card is designed to be compatible with Schneider Electric's Altivar 32 range of products. This compatibility ensures seamless integration with Altivar 32 drives, allowing users to maximize the benefits of both the card and the drives. By leveraging this compatibility, users can create a unified and efficient automation system that meets their specific requirements.


In terms of physical characteristics, the VW3A3616 card features two RJ45 connectors—one for Modbus TCP and the other for Ethernet/IP. These connectors provide a reliable and standardized means of connecting the card to the network. Additionally, the card is equipped with LED indicators that display the activity status of the Modbus TCP port, Ethernet port, Module Status (MS), and Network Status (NS). These indicators provide visual feedback, allowing users to quickly assess the card's operational status.

The VW3A3616 card weighs approximately 0.3 kg, making it lightweight and easy to handle during installation and maintenance procedures.

In conclusion, the VW3A3616 communication card from Schneider Electric is a versatile solution for Ethernet TCP/IP communication in industrial automation and control systems. With support for Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP protocols, a range of communication services, robust diagnostics, and seamless compatibility with Altivar 32 drives, the VW3A3616 card empowers users to establish reliable and efficient network connectivity. Its web server functionality and SNMP agent enhance its usability and facilitate effective system management. Whether it's for data exchange, diagnostics, or network monitoring, the VW3A3616 card provides a reliable and comprehensive solution for modern industrial communication needs.
