Battery Life Advisory
All modules in the MVI series use a rechargeable Lithium Vanadium Pentoxide battery to
backup the 512K SRAM memory, real-time clock, and CMOS. The battery should last for
the life of the module.
The module must be powered for approximately twenty hours before it becomes fully
charged. After it is fully charged, the battery provides backup power for the CMOS setup
and configuration data, the real-time clock, and the 512K SRAM memory for
approximately 21 days.
Before you remove a module from its power source, ensure that the battery within the
module is fully charged. A fully charged battery will hold the BIOS settings (after being
removed from its power source) for a limited number of days (15 for the PC56). When
the battery is fully discharged, the module will revert to the default BIOS settings.
Note: The battery is not user replaceable.

Setting Jumpers
If you use an interface other than RS-232 (default), you must change the jumper
configuration to match the interface. There are three jumpers located at the
bottom of the module.
The following illustration shows the MVI56-S3964R jumper configuration:
1
2
1.5
Set the PRT 2 (for application port 1) and PRT 3 (for application port 2)
jumpers for RS232, RS422 or RS485 to match the wiring needed for your
application. The default jumper setting for both application ports is RS-232.
The Setup Jumper acts as "write protection" for the module's flash memory.
In "write protected" mode, the Setup pins are not connected, and the
module's firmware cannot be overwritten. Do not jumper the Setup pins
together unless you are directed to do so by ProSoft Technical Support.
Install the Module in the Rack
If you have not already installed and configured your ControlLogix processor and
power supply, please do so before installing the MVI56-S3964R module. Refer to
your Rockwell Automation product documentation for installation instructions.
Warning: You must follow all safety instructions when installing this or any other electronic
devices. Failure to follow safety procedures could result in damage to hardware or data, or even
serious injury or death to personnel. Refer to the documentation for each device you plan to
connect to verify that suitable safety procedures are in place before installing or servicing the
device.

After you have checked the placement of the jumpers, insert MVI56-S3964R into
the ControlLogix chassis. Use the same technique recommended by Rockwell
Automation to remove and install ControlLogix modules.
Warning: When you insert or remove the module while backplane power is on, an electrical arc
can occur. This could cause an explosion in hazardous location installations. Verify that power is
removed or the area is non-hazardous before proceeding. Repeated electrical arcing causes
excessive wear to contacts on both the module and its mating connector. Worn contacts may
create electrical resistance that can affect module operation.

Open the Sample Ladder Logic
The sample program for your MVI56-S3964R module includes custom tags, data
types and ladder logic for data I/O and status monitoring. For most applications,
you can run the sample ladder program without modification, or, for advanced
applications, you can incorporate the sample program into your existing
application.
The inRAx Solutions CD provides one or more versions of the sample ladder
logic. The version number appended to the file name corresponds with the
firmware version number of your ControlLogix processor. The firmware version
and sample program version must match.
1.7.1 To Determine the Firmware Version of your Processor
Important: The RSLinx service must be installed and running on your computer in order for
RSLogix to communicate with the processor. Refer to your RSLinx and RSLogix documentation for
help configuring and troubleshooting these applications.

This chapter describes how to install and configure the module to work with your
application. The configuration process consists of the following steps.
1
Use RSLogix 5000 to identify the module to the processor and add the
module to a project.
Note: The RSLogix 5000 software must be in "offline" mode to add the module to a project.
2
Modify the example ladder logic to meet the needs of your application, and
copy the ladder logic to the processor. Example ladder logic files are provided
on the CD-ROM.
Note: If you are installing this module in an existing application, you can copy the necessary
elements from the example ladder logic into your application.
The rest of this chapter describes these steps in more detail.
2.1
Installation Instructions
The following setups/limitations are to be observed:
Please make sure that you are using an MVI56-S3964R with the original
parameters and image as delivered. Jumper SETUP: Please remove to run the
MVI56-S3964R in application mode.
ATTENTION: Incorrect setting of the jumpers may cause damage to the
MVI56-S3964R module.
The remaining jumpers for PRT1 and PRT2 have to be set according to the
requirements of the user.

Installing and Configuring the Module
The next step in the module's setup is to define the User Defined Data Types to
be used with the module. Copy these data types from the example ladder logic if
you are not using the example. They will be defined if you are starting from the
example ladder logic. The Controller Organization window should display the
User Defined Data Types shown below:
After you have defined the User Defined Data Types, the next step is to define
the data to be used to interface with the module and the ladder logic. Open the
Controller Tags Edit Tags dialog box and enter the values shown in the following
example. The MVI56-S3964R module is defined in the example as S3964R. You
can set the tag name to any valid tag name you desire. If you are using the
example ladder logic, this step has already been performed.
2.1.1 Module Data Object
All data related to the MVI56-S3964R module is stored in a user defined data
type. An instance of the data type is required before the module can be used.
This is done by declaring a variable of the data type in the Controller Tags Edit
Tags dialog box.

Ladder Logic
In This Chapter
™
Introduction............................................................................................ 35
™
Commands ............................................................................................ 36
Ladder logic is required for application of the MVI56-S3964R module. Tasks that
must be handled by the ladder logic are module data transfer, special block
handling and status data receipt. Additionally, a power-up handler may be
needed to handle the initialization of the module's data and to clear any
processor fault conditions.
The sample ladder logic, on the ProSoft Solutions CD-ROM, is extensively
commented, to provide information on the purpose and function of each rung. For
most applications, the sample ladder will work without modification.
3.1
Introduction
The example programs mentioned in the following paragraphs illustrate the
principle of how to communicate between an MVI56-S3964R and a ControlLogix
processor. All programs mentioned were tested with appropriate communication
partners.
It is up to the programmer to examine the programs in detail and integrate them
into the ControlLogix processor application.
The following setups/limitations are to be observed in the example
programs:
Changes according to the requirements of your ControlLogix system are
recommended for setups only. Limitations must not be changed.
ƒ
ƒ
Setup: The MVI56-S3964R resides in slot 2 of the ControlLogix chassis.
Setup: The 1756-L series controller resides in slot 0 of the ControlLogix
chassis.
ATTENTION: You must be trained in programming and operating Rockwell
Automation 1756-L series controllers and ControlLogix environment. Otherwise,
incorrect use may lead to personal injury or death, property damages or
economic loss.
3.1.1 Explanations About the Example Programs

Send jobs to a CP:
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Transfer the job data to the MVI56-S3964R.
Acknowledgement from the MVI56-S3964R regarding validity of the job data.
Depending on the type of send job the transfer of the user data from/to the
MVI56-S3964R/ControlLogix processor takes place.
Acknowledgement from the MVI56-S3964R regarding
successful/unsuccessful completion of the send job.
Receive jobs from a CP:
ƒ
ƒ
Depending on the type of receive job the transfer of the user data from/to the
MVI56-S3964R/ControlLogix processor takes place. The header data
generated from the MVI56-S3964R will be added automatically. The MVI56S3964R needs no extra job data from the ControlLogix processor for receive
jobs, it will be triggered through the STX character sent from the CP to
establish the communication.
Acknowledgement from the MVI56-S3964R regarding
successful/unsuccessful completion of the receive job.
During the processes described above additional status/error messages may be
transferred from the MVI56-S3964R to the ControlLogix processor (refer to
Module Status Data Table (page 65)). Refer to Error Processing for more
information.

Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
The organization of the menu structure is represented in simplified form in the
following illustration:
The remainder of this section shows you the menus available for this module,
and briefly discusses the commands available to you.
Keystrokes
The keyboard commands on these menus are almost always non-case sensitive.
You can enter most commands in lower case or capital letters.
The menus use a few special characters ([?], [-], [+], [@]) that must be entered
exactly as shown. Some of these characters will require you to use the [Shift],
[Ctrl] or [Alt] keys to enter them correctly. For example, on US English
keyboards, enter the [?] command as [Shift][/].
Also, take care to distinguish capital letter [I] from lower case letter [l] (L) and
number [1]; likewise for capital letter [O] and number [0]. Although these
characters look nearly the same on the screen, they perform different actions on
the module.
4.1.3 Main Menu
When you first connect to the module from your computer, your terminal screen
will be blank. To activate the main menu, press the [?] key on your computer's
keyboard. If the module is connected properly, the following menu will appear on

Ladder Logic
Ladder logic programming in the ControlLogix processor is required in order to
enable and support the Siemens 3964R protocol functionality. The ladder
program handles the encoding/decoding of data transferred from the module as
well as the initiation of protocol-specific functionality in the module. Example
ladder programs are provided with the module to simplify the implementation of
the module in the user application.
5.2
Functional Overview
5.2.1 Products in the Environment
The 3964R protocol can be installed in all local ControlLogix chassis with at least
one controller.
You can obtain more information about ControlLogix and the ControlLogix
environment through your Rockwell Automation branch office.
Product Compatibility
The communication between the MVI56 and the ControlLogix processor is
realized through the module's Input/Output Images.
5.2.2 3964R Protocol Overview
The 3964R Protocol in General
The 3964R protocol defined by Siemens is used for bi-directional data exchange
between two peers through a bit-serial point-to-point connection. This protocol
may be additionally embedded in the RK512 telegram level. If 3964R is used with
RK512, each participant can send jobs to its partner and has read (DB-FETCH)
and write access (DB-SEND) to the partner's data. The data exchange is realized
in the form of messages and response messages. The maximum user data
volume is 512 byte per job and 128 byte per message.
3964R without RK512 allows only block wise sending and receiving of data. The
detailed handshake procedure through messages and response messages is not
applicable in this case.

MVI56-S3964RT ♦ TControlLogix PlatformT
TSiemens 3964R ProtocolT
Reference
If both partners want to send a job (3964R with RK512) or data (3964R without
RK512) at the same time, the resulting initialization conflict will be solved through
the high/low priority setup. In such a case one partner will be allocated high
priority and the other one low priority. Thus, in case of an initialization conflict the
device with low priority will defer its job whereas the device with the high priority
will be able to send a job.
The safety of data transmission on the line is guaranteed by a BCC checksum.
You should have sufficient knowledge about the 3964R protocol in order to
understand the operation of the driver for the MVI56-S3964R and to make
efficient use of the example programs.
MVI56-S3964R Operation
The protocol realized on the MVI56-S3964R has the following special features:
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Immediately after power-up and completion of the internal/external
initialization procedures the MVI56-S3964R with installed 3964R protocol is
ready to serve as an interface between a ControlLogix processor and one or
two communication partners using 3964R protocol. The parameterization of
the module is realized through a configuration file. This is where a
differentiation between the communication modes 3964R with RK512 and
3964R without RK512 takes place.
The communication mode 3964R without RK512 supports processing of up to
512 bytes.
The serial transmission parameters are optional and can be allocated
independently to each interface. Possible baud rates are 300 to 115200. The
following parity setups are possible: Even, Odd and None.
5.2.3 General Concepts
Module Power Up
On power up the module begins performing the following logical functions:
ƒ
Initialize hardware components
o Initialize ControlLogix backplane driver
o Test and Clear all RAM
o Initialize the serial communication ports
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Read module configuration from the Compact Flash
Initialize Module Register space
Set up the communication interface for the debug/configuration port
When this initialization procedure is complete, the module will begin
communicating with other nodes on the network, depending on the configuration.

3964R with RK512: DB-FETCH from CP
1145hex
Data Block (DB)
Number of the data block. This data block must exist in the communication
partner (3964R with RK512 only, otherwise to be set to "0").
Data Word (DW)
Number of the data word in the selected data block. The selected data block
must contain this number (3964R with RK512 only, otherwise to be set to "0").
Number of Data Words/Data Bytes
Dependent on the type of communication mode used on port 1/2 of the module,
this value will be interpreted as number of data words. This value defines
whether a job will be carried out with or without subsequent telegram. For jobs
without subsequent telegram the value will be 1 ... 64 words (1 … 128 bytes),
and for jobs with subsequent telegram(s) it will be 65 ... 256 words (129 … 512
bytes).
Coordination Byte 9/10
3964R with RK512 send jobs offer the possibility of entering so called
coordination bytes (byte 9 and 10 in the RK512 telegram header). Otherwise to
be set to "0".
Data Type
The send message can request a data type of Data Words (44h) or Marker
(4Dh). If the value is 0 (zero), then data words is used.
Receive Jobs
To receive jobs from a CP only, no additional parameterization is necessary. The
user data received is stored in a file in the ControlLogix processor.
The following table shows an example of the data stored in HeaderCom1 in case
of a DB-Send from a CP. The CP is connected to port 1.

The user data is copied to RecvDataCom1. This is the file you should operate
with.
For port 2, which is similar to port 1, the file for storing the user data received is
called RecvDataCom2.
Send Jobs
To send a job to a CP, the next step is to define the appropriate header for the
job. The following table shows an example of the header data for a DB-Send job
to a CP with the following parameters:
DB = 10, DW = 0, 128 words, coordination byte 9 = FFhex, coordination byte 10
= FFhex, Data Type = 44hex.

A DB-Fetch job will be parameterized similar to the example above.
To send with 3964R without RK512 to a CP (identifier 00FFhex), the values for
DB, DW and the coordination bytes will be ignored and can be set to "0".
The next step is to copy the user data into the appropriate files of the
ControlLogix processor.

5.2.5 Job Processing
Both ports can be used independently from each other (multi tasking).
A possible initialization conflict will be solved as follows:
MVI56-S3964R has "High Priority":
The MVI56-S3964R retries the sending of the 3964R start character (STX) 3
times and waits for the CP to send the 3964R acknowledge (DLE). If the CP
does not send the acknowledge as expected the communication will fail and has
to be restarted.
MVI56-S3964R has "Low Priority":
The MVI56-S3964R rejects its send job and sends the 3964R acknowledge
(DLE) to the CP.
Important: If the MVI56-S3964R has rejected its send job due to "Low Priority", you must restart its
send job completely (starting with the copying of the job data).
5.3
Cable Connections
The application ports on the MVI56-S3964R module support RS-232 and RS-422
interfaces. Please look at the module to ensure that the jumpers are set correctly
to correspond with the type of interface you are using.
Note: When using RS-232 with radio modem applications, some radios or modems require
hardware handshaking (control and monitoring of modem signal lines). Enable this in the
configuration of the module by setting the UseCTS parameter to 1.
5.3.1 RS-232 Configuration/Debug Port
This port is physically an RJ45 connection. An RJ45 to DB-9 adapter cable is
included with the module. This port permits a PC based terminal emulation
program to view configuration and status data in the module and to control the
module. The cable for communications on this port is shown in the following
diagram:

Disabling the RSLinx Driver for the Com Port on the PC
The communication port driver in RSLinx can occasionally prevent other
applications from using the PC's COM port. If you are not able to connect to the
module's configuration/debug port using ProSoft Configuration Builder (PCB),
HyperTerminal or another terminal emulator, follow these steps to disable the
RSLinx Driver.

Open RSLinx and go to Communications>RSWho
Make sure that you are not actively browsing using the driver that you wish to
stop. The following shows an actively browsed network:

Notice how the DF1 driver is opened, and the driver is looking for a processor
on node 1. If the network is being browsed, then you will not be able to stop
this driver. To stop the driver your RSWho screen should look like this:

Upon seeing this, you may now use that com port to connect to the debug
port of the module.
Note: You may need to shut down and restart your PC before it will allow you to stop the driver
(usually only on Windows NT machines). If you have followed all of the above steps, and it will not
stop the driver, then make sure you do not have RSLogix open. If RSLogix is not open, and you
still cannot stop the driver, then reboot your PC.

5.3.2 RS-232
When the RS-232 interface is selected, the use of hardware handshaking
(control and monitoring of modem signal lines) is user definable. If no hardware
handshaking will be used, the cable to connect to the port is as shown below:
5.3.3 RS-232 Cable
The assignment of the RS-232 connection cable between PRT1/2 (9 pole) and
CP-544 (25 pole) is as follows:

If communication in the RS-422 mode does not work at first, despite all attempts,
try switching termination polarities. Some manufacturers interpret +/- and A/B
polarities differently.
