The Data Highway Plus/RIO module supports the following types
of communication:
• DH+ Messaging
• Control and Information Protocol (CIP) Messaging
• Remote I/O
You can send messages between devices on Data Highway Plus
networks and devices on other networks such as ControlNet,
Ethernet, or other DH+.
Using the RIO functionality, a 1756-DHRIO channel in scanner mode
transfers discrete and block-transfer data with remote I/O devices.
This module allows connection to multiple remote I/O adapters.
Routing Limitations
The 1756-DHRIO module has the capability of routing a message
through up to four communications networks and three chassis. This
is only a limitation on the routing of a message and not on the total
number of networks or chassis in a system.

ControlLogix Data Highway Plus/Remote I/O Communication Interface Module
DH+ and CIP Messaging
The 1756-DHRIO module allows an information exchange between
devices, such as PLCs, Logix5550 processors in ControlLogix
chassis, and SLCs.
With the 1756-DHRIO module, you may exchange information in
any of the following scenarios:
• between PLCs/SLCs on different networks
• between the Logix5550 and a PLC/SLC
• between Logix5550s
The following illustration shows an example system. Two
ControlLogix Gateways link existing Data Highway Plus networks.
Communication between PLC-5 programmable controllers on
different networks is accomplished in the same manner used for
communication within a network.

Remote I/O
When a channel on the module is configured for Remote I/O, the
module will act as a scanner for the RIO network. The Logix5550
controller (1756-L1) communicates to the module’s RIO scanner to
send and receive the I/O on the RIO network.
The following illustration shows an example system.

Setting Switches
Before installing the module, you must set the network type switches
for DH+ or RIO, depending on your application. For a channel
configured as DH+, you must also select a node address within the
range of 00-77. Node addresses are set and displayed in octal.
Important: If you require a channel to be configured for DH+, use
Channel A. By doing so, you can connect your
programming terminal to the connector on the front of
the module and communicate to devices on the network.
If only one channel is needed for RIO, use Channel B.
Set the network type and node address switches as shown below.

At module power-up, the alphanumeric indicator illuminates and
cycles through a sequence of power-up messages.
Included in the sequence is a scrolling display of the series letter, two
digits of the firmware major revision, a dot, and two digits of the
firmware minor revision. For example, the display will scroll B02.14
for a series B module with firmware revision 2.14.
After the power-up sequence, a sequence of information and status
messages are displayed on a continuous cycle. The following table
shows the sequence of messages for a module that has channel A set

On the most basic level, Data Highway Plus is a wire or cable and a
protocol that connects computers and peripheral devices so that they
can communicate. The actual wire used for a network is called the
network medium.
A DH+ link transfers data between PLC-5s, SLCs, and other devices
that use the DH+ network. These devices are called stations. You can
connect a maximum of 32 stations to a single DH+ link.

Basics of Using Data Highway Plus
Link Design
Use 1770-CD (Belden 9463) cable to connect your module to DH+.
Connect a DH+ network using a daisy chain or trunk line/drop line
configuration.
Trunk line/drop line considerations:
When using a trunk line/drop line configuration,
use 1770-SC station connectors and follow these
cable-length guidelines:
• trunk line-cable length—depends on the
communication rate of the link
• drop-cable length—30.4 m (100 cable-ft.)
Verify that your system’s design plans specify cable lengths within
allowable measurements.
Important: The maximum cable length for DH+ depends on the
transmission rate. Configure all devices on a DH+ link
to communicate at the same transmission rate.
For more information about designing trunk line/
drop line configurations, see the Data Highway/
Data Highway Plus/Data Highway II/
Data Highway-485 Cable Installation Manual,
publication 1770-6.2.2.
Also note that the 1756-DHRIO module only supports
DH+ communication at the 57.6kbps rate. Be sure to
use the correct cable.
For daisy chain configurations, use this table to determine the total
cable length you can use.
Table 2.2
Choosing the Correct Cable Length
A DH+ link using this
communication rate:
Cannot exceed this cable length:
57.6 kbps
3,048 m (10,000 ft)
For proper operation, terminate both ends of a DH+ link by using the
external resistors shipped with the 1756-DHRIO.
Table 2.3
Choosing the Correct Resistor Rating
Programming Terminal Port
If your DH+ I/O link operates at:
Use this resistor rating:

Channel A is set for DH+.
Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
Basics of Using Data Highway Plus
Application Guidelines
2-3
Consider the following application guidelines when configuring a
DH+ link for your system.
• Minimize the number of DH+ nodes to achieve acceptable
response times. Keep in mind the size and frequency of
messages exchanged between devices.
• Limit the number of stations on your network when you are
trying to achieve fastest control response time. Establish
separate DH+ networks to bring-on additional stations.
• Do not add or remove stations from the network during
machine or process operation. If the network token resides
with a device that is removed, the token may be lost to the
rest of the network. The network is automatically
reestablished, but it could take several seconds. Control
would be unreliable or interrupted during this time.
• When possible, do not program processors online during
machine or process operation. This could result in long
bursts of DH+ activity that could increase response time.
• When possible, add a separate DH+ link for programming
processors to keep effects of the programming terminal
from the process DH+ link.

DH+ Operation
Using DH+ Messaging
Most devices with a DH+ channel support this type of
communication. These devices are listed in Table 2.1 Selecting
Devices that You Can Connect on page 2-1.
DH+ messaging is further divided into two types:
• Local DH+ Messaging
• Remote DH+ Messaging
Before you can design a control system to meet your application
needs, be aware of the difference between Local DH+ Messaging and
Remote DH+ Messaging.
Benefits of DH+ Messaging
DH+ Messaging provides the following benefits:
• it allows you to send messages between devices on the
same link
• it allows you to send messages between devices on
different links
• it is compatible with many existing Allen-Bradley modules
Local DH+ Messaging
Devices use local DH+ messaging to communicate between devices
on the same physical link.
A device that uses local DH+ messaging must be able to:
• generate local DH+ packets
• support local DH+ protocol
• send and receive messages
A local DH+ message sent on a DH+ network has only enough
address information to get the message to a target node on the same
DH+ network. This limits the use of local DH+ messaging in
a system.
The 1756-DHRIO module has added functionality to allow the use of
local DH+ messaging in limited cases.
Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
DH+ Operation
3-3
Receiving Local DH+ Messages on DH+
Because a local DH+ message only has enough address information
to get the message to a target node on the same DH+ network, the
1756-DHRIO module that receives this message cannot identify
where to send the message to. In this case, the 1756-DHRIO module
uses the configuration parameter Controller Slot.
The 1756-DHRIO module sends any local DH+ message it receives
to the single Controller Slot (default=0) configured for the receiving
DH+ channel on the 1756-DHRIO module. You must use the
ControlLogix Gateway Configuration Tool (1756-GTWY) to
configure the Controller Slot.
There are some messages that, when received by the 1756-DHRIO
module, are not sent to the controller slot. In this case, the
1756-DHRIO module generates a response to the message. For a
complete listing of these messages, see Appendix A.
Local DH+ messaging does not require a populated routing table.
Local DH+ messaging does require a default (a properly emptied) or
an applied (a properly populated and saved) routing table, and a
default or applied controller slot for each channel configured for
DH+.
Important: Local DH+ Messaging can only target one Logix5550
controller per DH+ channel. Also, the Logix5550 must
reside in the same chassis as the 1756-DHRIO module
receiving the message.
Sending Local DH+ Messages on DH+
If a 1756-DHRIO channel receives a DH+ message with a destination
link ID=0 from a Logix5550 processor in the same chassis, the
module will send the message as a local DH+ message.
Important: The target of the DH+ message must be on the same DH+
link as the 1756-DHRIO module sending the message.
Also, the Logix5550 must reside in the same chassis as
the 1756-DHRIO module sending the message on DH+.

DH+ Operation
Limitations of Local DH+ Messaging
When using Local DH+ Messaging, you must remember
the following:
• The DH+ message contains only a node ID for a node on the
DH+ network
• A local DH+ message sent to the node ID of a port on
the1756-DHRIO module will be forwarded to a single
user-configured controller slot
• Messages on one DH+ network cannot be routed to
other networks
The following example shows a PLC-5 sending a message to port A
on the 1756-DHRIO module. Because the controller slot for port A
is configured to “0”, the message is forwarded to the Logix5550 in
slot 0.

Routing Error in Local DH+ Messaging
If the 1756-DHRIO has a problem with routing a DH+ message, it
may return a response with an error status of D0 hex. A PLC-5 will
display this error as D000 hex when monitoring the message
instruction. If you receive this error message:
• check your message instruction to make sure a valid
destination node was entered
• check your default slot configuration to make sure that it
matches the location of the Logix5550 in the chassis
• make sure the 1756-DHRIO module is powered-up
Before Programming in
a Controller
Before programming your message block instructions in your
PLC-5/SLC, you must:
• determine which links will send and receive DH+ Local
messages
• draw a network - make sure you meet the design
requirements for Local DH+ messages
• assign DH+ node numbers
• use the ControlLogix Gateway Configuration software to
enter the controller slot or execute the default for the
controller slot for each channel configured for DH+
Important: These configuration steps must be done for each
1756-DHRIO in the your system.
For more information . . .
For more information on the ControlLogix Gateway Configuration
Software, see the ControlLogix Gateway Configuration software user
manual, publication 1756-6.5.7.
Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
3-6
DH+ Operation
Remote DH+ Messaging
Devices use remote DH+ messaging to communicate between
devices on physically separate networks.
When using remote DH+ messaging, you must include the following
in the message instruction:
• destination link ID - a user-configured number representing
a network in your system
• remote node or slot - node or slot on the remote network
you want to communicate with
If the message originates on DH+, you must also include:
• local DH+ node - node on your local DH+ network capable
of routing the message
If the message originates on Ethernet, ControlNet or ControlLogix,
you must also include:
• a CIP path to the first 1756-DHRIO module
The following example of remote DH+ messaging shows a PLC
processor A sending a message to PLC processor B:
DHRIO module
ControlLogix chassis
Channel A
node: 020
Channel B
node: 025
Link ID 1
Link ID 2
41363
PLC-5/25 processor A
node:010
PLC-5 processor B
node: 030
In the example above, the following information must be included in
the remote DH+ message routing message instruction:
• local DH+ node = 020
• destination link ID = 2
• remote DH+ node = 030
Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
DH+ Operation
3-7
A device that uses remote DH+ messaging must be able to:
• generate Remote DH+ packets
• support Remote DH+ protocol
• send and receive messages
Remote DH+ messaging should be used when:
• the message originating device or the message target device
is one of the devices listed in Table 2.1 Selecting Devices
that You Can Connect on page 2-1
• there is a DH+ link in the message’s path from originator
to target
• the message originating device and the message target
device are on separate networks or the message target is in a
ControlLogix chassis and there is more than one Logix5550
target in the chassis
To use remote DH+ messaging, each network that is an originating
network or target network must have a unique link ID. The
1756-DHRIO module requires these link IDs to be decimal values
between 1-199. Each DH+ channel on a 1756-DHRIO must have its
own unique link ID.
A source network is the network the message originates on. The
destination network is the network the message is targeted for. This
applies to all source and destination networks, whether they are DH+,
ControlNet, Ethernet or a ControlLogix chassis.
Important: For remote DH+ messaging, the ControlLogix chassis
should be considered a separate, independent network.
Therefore, a system of 1 DH+ network and one
ControlLogix chassis is a two link system.
The ControlLogix chassis is required to be a separate,
independent link for DH+ messaging if there is more
than one message target Logix5550 controller in a
ControlLogix chassis.
Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
3-8
DH+ Operation
The 1756-DHRIO module contains a routing table that you define for
your application. You must use the ControlLogix Gateway
Configuration Tool (1756-GTWY) to configure your routing table.
For more information . . .
For more information on the ControlLogix Gateway Configuration
Software, see the ControlLogix Gateway Configuration software user
manual, publication 1756-6.5.7.
By using the routing table, the 1756-DHRIO allows existing devices,
such as PLC-5s, to use ‘DH+ Remote Addressing’ for messaging.
The routing table used in your 1756-DHRIO module contains
information used to steer Remote DH+ Messages through the system
to ‘remote’ nodes located on separate networks.
Before programming your message block instructions in your
controller, you must:
• determine which links will send and receive remote
DH+ messaging
• draw a network - make sure you meet the design
requirements for remote DH+ messaging
If you are using remote DH+ messaging, you must also:
• assign link numbers - numbers must be a decimal value
between 1-199. ControlLogix chassis may also be assigned
link IDs. Remember that the programming terminal and
channel A are the same physical link
• assign DH+ node numbers
• use the ControlLogix Gateway Configuration software to
enter routing tables into each 1756-DHRIO module.
Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
DH+ Operation
3-9
Limitations of Remote DH+ Messaging
Remote DH+ Messages are actually encapsulated in Control and
Information Protocol (CIP) messages and sent on Control and
Information Protocol connections when they are sent across
ControlNet, Ethernet, and the ControlLogix chassis. Although this is
transparent to the user, there are resource limits associated with
Control and Information Protocol on the 1756-DHRIO.
The 1756-DHRIO will support 32 CIP connections per DH+ channel.
These connections are made when devices want to send a DH+
message out of a 1756-DHRIO’s DH+ channel and are made by the
1756-DHRIO when it receives DH+ message traffic. The
1756-DHRIO will recover connections if they are not being used.
Because of the various paths involved, the 1756-DHRIO will respond
to ‘out of connections’ in one of the following ways:
• The 1756-DHRIO may generate a Routing Error (see page
4-9) on DH+ for DH+ message requests if there are no
connections available.
• The Message Originator may generate an Application
Timeout (see page 3-11) if a remote 1756-DHRIO has no
connections available for a DH+ Message response.
• The Message Originator may receive an ‘out of
connections’ error if the path from the Originator to the
1756-DHRIO is ControlLogix chassis, ControlNet or
Ethernet.
Routing Errors in Remote DH+ Messaging
If the 1756-DHRIO has a problem with routing a Remote DH+
Message, it may return a response with an error status of D0 hex. A
PLC-5 will display this error as D000 hex when monitoring the
message instruction. If you receive this error message:
• check your message instruction to make sure a valid
gateway node, link ID and destination node were entered
• check your routing table in each DH+ module that the
message passes through
• make sure all 1756-DHRIO modules are connected and

DH+ Operation
Configuration Information
in DH+ Messaging
When you are using DH+ messaging, you must use either default
configuration or write specific configuration for your application.
The following configuration information is stored in the non-volatile
memory on your 1756-DHRIO module when you apply configuration
using the Gateway Configuration Tool (1756-GTWY):
• Any routing table that may be needed to send DH+
messages through the module - must be applied to the
module’s configuration separately from other information
• Controller slot for each DH+ channel - must be applied to
the module’s configuration separately from other
information
• Slot number of the module
• Chassis serial number
Important: If you restore default defaults using the Gateway
Configuration Tool (1756-GTWY), the slot number and
chassis serial number are stored in the 1756-DHRIO
module’s non-volatile memory but no routing table is
used and the controller slot for both DH+ channels is
set to 0.
Generating Configuration Faults
When you insert a 1756-DHRIO module in a ControlLogix chassis,
the configuration information stored in the module’s non-volatile
memory is compared to the slot and serial number of the chassis it is
entering. If any information does not match, the 1756-DHRIO
module will generate a configuration fault.
For a complete listing of the configuration faults that may be
displayed on your 1756-DHRIO module, see chapter 13.
Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
DH+ Operation
Application Timeout
3-11
When an error occurs while sending a message to a remote link, it
will appear to the sending station as an application timeout because
error messages are not routed back. When an error occurs during
routing, it may be dropped.
For example, if a PLC 5/40 processor sends a message to a PLC
processor, and the PLC-5/25 processor’s buffers are full, three
things happen:
• the PLC-5/25 processor refuses the message because the
buffers are full
• when no reply is received, the originator detects an
application timeout
• the originator increments its error count
The PLC-5/40 processor can retry to send the message later.

DH+ Operation
Using Control and Information
Protocol (CIP) Messaging
3-13
Control and Information Protocol (CIP) is the new protocol that
serves as the communications mechanism on ControlLogix chassis,
ControlNet network and Ethernet with the EPIC protocol.
Like DH+ messaging, CIP supports communication between devices
on the same link and physically separate links. However, CIP
Messaging uses a different method to route messages than
DH+ Messaging.
CIP uses a ‘relative path’ concept for routing messaging. Because the
message itself, or the connection the message is sent on, contains all
the information required to route the message, CIP messages do not
require any routing table or link IDs. For more information on paths,
see Chapter 4.
Devices such as ControlLogix devices, devices that use the
ControlNet network, and devices that use EPIC protocol on Ethernet
support this new type of communication.
Important: Your 1756-DHRIO module supports bridging CIP
messaging over a DH+ link. Your 1756-DHRIO module
does not support bridging CIP I/O data from a
Logix5550 controller to an 1756-I/O module.
The message originator, target, and all modules and
links between them must support CIP to send a message
using CIP protocol.

DH+ Operation
Limitations of CIP Messaging
The 1756-DHRIO module will support bridging a total of 5 CIP
connections. These 5 count against the 32 connections per DH+
channel. So if a 1756-DHRIO module has used 30 connections for
DH+ Message Routing, it can only use 2 connections to bridge a CIP
message through the module.

For applications connecting RSLogix 5000 to a Logix5550, you must
configure the appropriate communication driver for the network that
links the workstation using RSLogix 5000 and the Logix5550.
The communication driver enables the controller to communicate
over the network. You must configure communication drivers in
RSLinx software and then select the appropriate driver in the
programming software.
To configure the available communication drivers for the Logix5550
controller through the programming software:
1. Start the RSLogix 5000 software.
2. From the Communications menu, select Configure, as shown
below.
3. Select the Communications tab on the Workstation options screen
and fill in the following information.
In this field:
Enter:
Driver
This is a display-only field that describes the
communications protocol of the selected driver.

Use the drop-down menu to select the driver:
• ControlNet (AB_KTC)
• DF1 (AB_DF1)
• DH+ (AB_KT)
• Ethernet (TCP)
This is the connection path to the controller you wish to
communicate with from the communications card you are
connected to. The path consists of a sequence of decimal
numbers separated by commas.
The field displays up to three lines for a long path, and a
scroll-bar appears if the entire field cannot be displayed.
This button navigates to the Recent Configurations dialog
where you can choose from the recent configurations
stored on the workstation.
Any driver configured through the programming software must first
have been configured using RSLinx software.

Programming Terminal Operation Over DH+
Defining Connection Paths
4-5
You may have to configure a connection path when configuring
controller to controller communication or when configuring
communication from a workstation to a controller. The connection
path starts with the controller or the communications card in
the workstation.
The following steps construct a communication path:
1. Separate the number or address entered in each step with a
comma. All numbers are in decimal by default. You can enter
any number, other than an Ethernet IP address, in another base by
using the IEC-1131 prefix (8# for octal, 16# for hexadecimal).
Ethernet IP addresses are always decimal numbers separated
by periods.
2. To construct the path, you enter one or more path segments that
lead to the controller. Each path segment takes you from one
module to another module over the ControlBus backplane or over
a DH+, ControlNet, or Ethernet networks.
You can only have 8 paths lead to the controller.
Each path segment contains two numbers:
x,y
Where:
This
Is:
x
number of the type of port you use to exit from the module you are at:
,
y
0 DH+ port from a KT card
1 backplane from any 1756 module
2 RS232 port from a 1756-L1 controller
2 ControlNet port from a KTC card or a 1756-CNB module
2 Ethernet port from a 1756-ENET module
2 DH+ port over channel A from a 1756-DHRIO module
3 DH+ port over channel B from a 1756-DHRIO module
separates the first number and second number of the path segment
address of the module you are going to
For
Address means:
ControlBus backplane
slot number (0-16 decimal)
DF1 network
station address (0-254)
ControlNet network
node number (1-99 decimal)
DH+ network
node number (0-77 octal)
Ethernet network
IP address (four decimal numbers
separated by periods)
If you have multiple path segments, you must also separate each path
segment with a comma (,).

explains what steps must be taken to perform these operations.
Important: The examples use PLC-5s and SLC-5/04s to send DH+
messages. In each case, the use of these devices is
strictly for example purposes and not an indication of
restrictions on the 1756-DHRIO module. Examples
using PLC-5s could, in fact, use SLC-5/04s and
examples using SLC-5/04s could use PLC-5s.

Set -Up
Routing Table
1. Use the ControlLogix Gateway Configuration Tool (1756GTWY) to set-up a routing table for the 1756-DHRIO module.
Your table should look like this:
See remote DH+ messaging 3-6
2. Apply the routing table to your application.
Important: Controller slot values for channels configured for DH+
should be applied or restored to default value, using the
appropriate software tabs.
In this example, controller values do not matter, but
failure to enter a value, specific or default, will generate
a configuration fault for that channel.

See remote DH+ messaging 3-6
4. Apply the routing table to your application.
Important: Controller slot values for channels configured for DH+
should be applied or restored to default value, using the
appropriate software tabs.
In this example, controller values do not matter, but
failure to enter a value, specific or default, will generate
a configuration fault for that channel.
TIP
Because both 1756-DHRIO modules are in the same chassis, you
only need to set-up one of the two routing tables and apply it to
both modules.

This chapter contains three example applications. Each example
explains what steps must be taken to perform these operations.
Important: The examples use PLC-5s and SLC-5/04s to send DH+
messages. In each case, the use of these devices is
strictly for example purposes and not an indication of
restrictions on the 1756-DHRIO module.
Examples using PLC-5s could, in fact, use SLC-5/04s
and examples using SLC-5/04s could use PLC-5s.

If the Logix5550 is located in slot 0 of the ControlLogix chassis, you do
not need to modify the controller slot.
If the Logix5550 is not located in the default slot (slot 0) of the
ControlLogix chassis, you must use the ControlLogix Gateway
Configuration Tool (1756-GTWY) to set-up a controller slot for the
1756-DHRIO module.
1. In this example, you must enter the controller slot number on the
channel A configuration page because the Logix5550 is not located in
the default configuration slot.
2. Apply the controller slot number to your application.
Important: Controller slot values for the other channel, if it is configured
for DH+, should be applied or restored to default value,
using the appropriate software tabs.
In this example, controller values applied to the channel not
used for DH+ messaging do not matter, but failure to enter a
value will generate a configuration fault for that channel.
A routing table is not required for local DH+ messaging. However, if a
routing table is programmed, verify it is programmed correctly and
applied or set to default. Failure to do so may generate a
configuration fault.

used to send a message to Logix5550 A. (This processor
must be configured as the controller slot, see Step 2.)
Remote DH+ messaging is used to send a message to

Set -Up
Routing Table
1. Use the ControlLogix Gateway Configuration Tool (1756-GTWY) to
set-up a routing table for the 1756-DHRIO module. The table should
look like this:
See remote DH+ messaging 3-6
2. Apply the routing table to your application.
Important: Controller slot values for channels configured for DH+
should be applied or restored to default value, using the
appropriate software tabs.
In this example, controller values do not matter, but failure
to enter a value, specific or default, will generate a
configuration fault for that channel.

This chapter contains three example applications. Each example
explains what steps must be taken to perform these operations.
Important: The examples use PLC-5s and SLC-5/04s to send DH+
messages. In each case, the use of these devices is
strictly for example purposes and not an indication of
restrictions on the 1756-DHRIO module.
Examples using PLC-5s could, in fact, use SLC-504s
and examples using SLC-5/04s could use PLC-5s.

Local DH+ Messaging From a
Logix5550 to a PLC-5 With One
ControlLogix Chassis
This application sends a DH+ message from a Logix5550 A through a
1756-DHRIO module to a PLC-5 processor B on a DH+ link. Local DH+
messaging may be used to send the message. In this case, local DH+
messaging is used.

Important: When you are using local DH+ messaging between a
Logix5550 and a PLC processor, you do not need a routing
table. (The default setting on the module out of the box is to
have no routing table set-up.)
A routing table is not required for local DH+ messaging.
However, if a routing table is programmed, verify it is
programmed correctly or a configuration fault may occur.
Also, controller slot values for channels configured for DH+
should be applied or restored to default value, using the
appropriate software tabs. Failure to enter the correct value
will generate a configuration fault for that channel.

The remote I/O system lets you control I/O that is not within the
controller’s chassis. A 1756-DHRIO channel, configured as an RIO
scanner, transfers discrete and block-transfer data between a
Logix5550 controller and remote I/O devices.
An example remote I/O system looks like this:

Basics of Using Remote I/O
Designing a Remote I/O Network
9-3
Designing a remote I/O network requires applying:
• remote I/O network design guidelines
• cable design guidelines
Network Design Guidelines
Keep these rules in mind as you design remote I/O network:
• All devices connected to a remote I/O network must
communicate using the same communication rate, 57.6,
115.2, or 230.4kbps.
• One or both channels of the 1756-DHRIO module in
scanner mode cannot scan the same partial or full rack
address. Assign unique partial and full racks to each
channel used in remote I/O scanner mode.
• A channel can have a maximum of 32 rack numbers and a
maximum of 32 physical devices connected to it.
Important: When both channels on the 1756-DHRIO module are
configured for RIO, each channel must be connected to
adapters with unique rack numbers. For example,
channel A communicates to 00-37 octal and channel B
communicates to 40-77 octal)
Cable Design Guidelines
Specify 1770-CD (Belden 9463) cable. Connect a remote I/O
network using a daisy chain or trunk line/drop line configuration.
Trunk line/drop line considerations:
When using a trunk line/drop line configuration,
use 1770-SC station connectors and follow these
cable-length guidelines:
• trunk line-cable length—depends on the
communication rate of the link
• drop-cable length—30.4 m (100 cable-ft.)
Verify that your system’s design plans specify cable lengths within
allowable measurements.
Important: The maximum cable length for remote I/O depends on the
transmission rate. Configure all devices on a remote I/O
network to communicate at the same transmission rate.
For more information about designing trunk line/
drop line configurations, see the Data Highway/
Data Highway Plus/Data Highway II/
Data Highway-485 Cable Installation Manual,
publication 1770-6.2.2.

Basics of Using Remote I/O
For daisy chain configurations, use this table to determine the total
cable length you can use.
Table 9.3
Determining Cable Length
A remote I/O network using this
communication rate:
Cannot exceed this cable length:
57.6 kbps

230.4 kbps
3,048m (10,000 ft)
1,524m (5,000 ft)
762m (2,500 ft)
For proper operation, terminate both ends of a remote I/O network by
using the external resistors shipped with the 1756-DHRIO module.
Selecting either a 150Ω or a 82Ω terminator determines how many
devices you can connect on a single remote I/O network.

DHRIO Module Operation
The 1756-DHRIO module provides two configurable channels that
can either send and receive messages over DH+ or scan remote I/O
devices. When a channel is configured for remote I/O, the
1756-DHRIO module is designed to function as an RIO scanner for a
Logix5550 controller.
When a 1756-DHRIO module is functioning as an RIO scanner, the
following occurs:
• I/O data is exchanged between the 1756-DHRIO module
and remote I/O adapters on the RIO link
• I/O data is exchanged between the 1756-DHRIO module
and the Logix5550 controller
Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
10-2
Remote I/O Operation
Exchanging I/O Data Between Adapters on the RIO Link and the
1756-DHRIO Module
I/O data is exchanged between adapters on the RIO link and the
1756-DHRIO module based on a list of adapters generated in the I/O
configuration tree in the Controller Organizer of RSLogix 5000.
The Logix5550 controller, known as the owner-controller, downloads
this list, along with the RIO baud rate, to the 1756-DHRIO module.
This completes the configuration of the remote I/O on the
1756-DHRIO module.
The remote I/O network pre-dates the producer/consumer model used
for ControlLogix. Therefore, the 1756-DHRIO does not use producer/
consumer on the remote I/O network. Instead, the 1756-DHRIO
module scans each adapter (exchange I/O data) in the list as quickly
as possible.
Exchanging I/O Data Between the Logix5550 and
the 1756-DHRIO Module
I/O data and status are exchanged between the Logix5550 and the
1756-DHRIO module through the producer/consumer model used by
the ControlLogix system.
Multiple connections are established between the Logix5550 and the
1756-DHRIO module. These connections can be classified in two
categories. In the first category, connections are established between
the Logix5550 and the 1756-DHRIO module for each adapter on the
remote I/O link. I/O data is exchanged on these connections.
In the second category, a connection is established between the
Logix5550 and the supervisor of the remote I/O on the 1756-DHRIO
module. (The supervisor is the RIO scanner located internally on the
module.) RIO scanner status is exchanged on this connection. In this
case, the data exchange is bidirectional. The 1756-DHRIO module
reports status on the RIO scanner, and the Logix5550 maintains
ownership of the 1756-DHRIO module.
Important: Only 1 Logix5550 controller can communicate and own
the RIO channels on a 1756-DHRIO module.
Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
Remote I/O Operation
10-3
I/O Configuration Tree in Controller Organizer in RSLogix 5000
The I/O configuration tree in the Controller Organizer in
RSLogix 5000 specifies the connections to the 1756-DHRIO module,
in addition to generating the adapter list of the 1756-DHRIO module
to scan.
The entry of a 1756-DHRIO module in the I/O configuration tree of
the Controller Organizer specifies the status connection between the
Logix5550 and the scanner function on the 1756-DHRIO module.
The entries of adapters under the 1756-DHRIO module in the I/O
configuration tree of the Controller Organizer specifies the
connections between the Logix5550 and the 1756-DHRIO module for
each adapter’s data.
TIP
RIO Scanner Status
Only enter a 1756-DHRIO module into the I/O configuration tree of
the Controller Organizer if at least one of the module’s channels is
configured for remote I/O.
A connection is used to exchange remote I/O scanner status as
described above. The data from the 1756-DHRIO module contains
the current state of the channels (A/B) that are configured for remote
I/O. The data from the Logix5550 represents an update used by the
1756-DHRIO module to maintain ownership.
This data exchange is continually updated and is responsible for
maintaining module awareness in the system.
Adapter Module I/O
The 1756-DHRIO module scans the remote I/O devices as they
appear in the Logix5550’s controller organizer. The entries in the
organizer represent logical adapters. The physical adapter modules
on RIO may act as several racks. This depends on the addressing
mode of the physical adapter and chassis.
The RSLogix 5000 software allows 4 choices for the adapter
modules:
• 1747 Remote I/O adapter
• 1771 Remote I/O adapter
• 1794 Remote I/O adapter
• Generic Remote I/O adapter
Each entry includes the following:
• rack address - values are 00-77 octal
• starting group - can start in slot 0, 2, 4, or 6
• rack size - can be 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 or full rack
Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
10-4
Remote I/O Operation
Important: Each choice provides a way of determining what type of
adapter is present on the RIO network. They all behave
the same in the ControlLogix system. When online, the
1756-DHRIO module cannot tell which specific adapter
is connected to the RIO network.
The adapter output data sent by the Logix5550 is consumed by the
1756-DHRIO module on the connection created when you add
remote I/O devices in RSLogix 5000.
The output data is produced by the owner-controller at the RPI and is
not tied to the scan time of the controller’s program. How often the
output data is sent by the RIO scanner to the RIO adapters depends
upon the number of adapters on the channel and the baud rate used.
The rack input data received in the adapter response is produced by
the 1756-DHRIO module immediately after the RIO adapter response
is received. The owner-controller receives the data directly into the
data buffer created by the software. The frequency at which the input
data is produced depends upon the number of adapters on the channel
and the baud rate used.
Setting the Rate of Data Exchange
Between the Logix5550 and the
1756-DHRIO Module
The following sections describe the process of setting the Requested
Packet Interval (RPI) for data exchanges between the Logix5550 and
the 1756-DHRIO module. An RPI must be set for both the remote I/O
scanner status connection and each adapter connection.
Requested Packet Interval (RPI)
This interval specifies the rate at which the 1756-DHRIO module and
the Logix5550 produce data. The time ranges from 3mS to 750mS
and is sent to the module with all other configuration parameters.
When the specified timeframe elapses, the 1756-DHRIO module and
the Logix5550 will produce data for each other.
RIO Scanner Status Update Rate With the 1756-DHRIO in a
Local Chassis
When a module resides in the same chassis as the owner controller,
the RPI affects how and when the module produces link status and
consumes the controller status.
The rate the status is exchanged at is equal to the RPI.
RIO Scanner Status Update Rate With the 1756-DHRIO Module in
a Remote Chassis
If a module physically resides in a chassis other than where its ownercontroller is (i.e. a remote chassis connected via ControlNet), the rate
the status is exchanged at is equal to the RPI + 2 x [Network Update
Time (NUT)].

TIP
Setting the Rate of I/O Data
Exchange Between the Logix5550
and the 1756-DHRIO Module
10-5
To maximize notification of the module status, we recommend setting
the 1756-DHRIO module’s RPI value equal to the RPI used in the
adapter connections.
The rate of I/O data exchange is directly related to the configured
RIO scanner baud rate. Your 1756-DHRIO module allows the
following baud rates:
• 57.6Kbaud
• 115.2Kbaud
• 230.4Kbaud
The RIO scanner scan each RIO adapter at the following rates:
• 8ms/adapter @ 57.6Kbaud
• 5ms/adapter @ 115.2Kbaud
• 3ms/adapter @ 230.4Kbaud
To determine the RPI for all Controller Organizer entries use graphs
on the following page.

Adapter Module I/O Update Rate with the 1756-DHRIO Module in
the Local Chassis
When the 1756-DHRIO module resides in the same chassis as the
owner-controller, updated output data (refreshed to new values via the
control program) is delivered to the adapter module at:
RPI + scan rate per adapter * number of adapters
Where the RPI is equal to the value determined from the graphs on
page 10-6, and scan rate per adapter=3ms @ 230.4K, 5ms @115.2K,
or 8ms @57.6K.
The updated input data is delivered to the Logix5550 at:
Scan rate per adapter * number of adapters
The update rate for an adapter module (i.e. the rate at which I/O data
is produced/consumed between the owner-controller and the
1756-DHRIO module) is:
RPI + 2[Scan rate per adapter * number of adapters]
This is a turnaround calculation for an output to input in the
same rack.
When you include block transfers, the update rate for an adapter
module is:
RPI + 2(Scan rate per adapter * number of adapters) + (Scan
rate per adapter * total number of adapters with BT modules
in them)

Publication 1756-6.5.14 - August 1998
Remote I/O Operation
RIO Scanner Failure Notification
10-9
A 1756-DHRIO module using one of its channels for remote I/O has
a connection open between the module and its owner-controller. The
RIO scanner status is continually being exchanged over this
connection. This continuous data exchange is responsible for
maintaining module awareness in the system.
If at any time this continuous data exchange is interrupted for a time
that is 4 times the RPI, the Logix5550 drops the current RIO scanner
configuration and terminates communication with the adapters on the
RIO network. The channel configured for RIO scanner goes offline
and waits for new configuration data before beginning
communication with the RIO network.
The Logix5550 also performs one of the following scenarios:
• Logix5550 will fault, if the 1756-DHRIO module has been
configured for a major fault to occur on the controller if
communication fails.
• Logix5550 will not fault, if the 1756-DHRIO module has
not been configured for a major fault to occur if
communication fails. In this case, the Logix5550 will
repeatedly attempt to reestablish communications with the
1756-DHRIO module.
TIP
RIO Adapter Failure Notification
The update rate for the data exchange should be set to go at the
minimum RPI set for the data flow between the Logix5550 and the
RIO adapters. This guarantees the scanner will quickly terminate
remote I/O network communications if the 1756-DHRIO module
loses data flow from the Logix5550.
The speed at which the Logix5550 is notified that a remote I/O
adapter has faulted is directly related to the RPI. The fault, known as
a connection timeout, will occur at 4 times the RPI. For example, if
the RPI is set at 25ms and a fault occurs, the Logix5550 will not be
notified for 100ms. For more information on connection timeouts, see
page 3-11.
An RIO adapter fault notification occurs whenever the
communication between the RIO scanner (Channel A or B) and a
remote I/O adapter is interrupted or the communication between the
1756-DHRIO module and the Logix5550 is interrupted.
RSLogix 5000 alerts you to a rack fault in at least one of the
following ways:
• nonzero condition appears in the tag editor
• fault icon appears in the controller organizer
• connections page displays the fault type

Inhibiting the 1756-DHRIO
Module Connections
When the inhibit bit is set for the 1756-DHRIO module, the
connection between the Logix5550 and the 1756-DHRIO module is
terminated.
Although the 1756-DHRIO module connection is inhibited, the
DHRIO scanner (Channel A or B) changes to program mode and
continues to scan the RIO adapters on the RIO network. When
inhibited, a 1756-DHRIO module will accept configuration from any
Logix5550 in the control system.
The 1756-DHRIO connection can be inhibited on the module
properties connection tab of RSLogix5000, as shown below.
Inhibit the connection to
the module here
Inhibiting an RIO
Connector Adapter
When the inhibit bit is set for a RIO adapter connection, the
connection between the Logix5550 and the RIO adapter is
terminated.
In this case, the DHRIO scanner (Channel A or B) continues to scan
the RIO rack on the RIO network and switches the affected chassis of
I/O into program mode. Only the Logix5550 that initiated the
configuration of the 1756-DHRIO module can reestablish
communications with the inhibited RIO adapter.
RIO rack connections can be inhibited on the module properties

Remote I/O Operation
Increased Remote I/O System
Throughput
10-11
Because of the unique design of the 1756-DHRIO module system,
performance is greatly enhanced by splitting the RIO adapters across
both channels. An example of a simple system has the following
devices:
• Rack 1 - Starting Quarter 0 - Size Full
• Rack 2 - Starting Quarter 0 - Size Full
If both racks are placed on the same channel at a baud rate of
230.4Kbaud, the minimum RPI between the 1756-DHRIO module
and the RIO adapters would be 6mS. If the racks are split between
channel A and channel B, the update rate can be decreased to 4.5mS.
The following algorithms are used to calculate various update rates:
• @ 230.4Kbaud
Update Rate = 3mS*(number of racks [channel A or B])
+ 1/2*3mS*(number of racks [channel A
or B])
• @ 115.2Kbaud
Update Rate = 5mS*(number of racks [channel A or B])
+ 1/2*5mS*(number of racks [channel A
or B])
• @ 57.6Kbaud
Update Rate = 8mS*(number of racks [channel A or B])
+ 1/2*8mS*(number of racks [channel A
or B])

10-12
Remote I/O Operation
Sending Block Transfer Data
In addition to discrete I/O, the 1756-DHRIO module supports the
sending block transfer (BT) data to the Logix5550 controller. This
data exchange transfers up to 64 words of data to/from a selected I/O
module.
The BT data exchange is message based. This means that a message
instruction in the Ladder Logic program of the Logix5550 must be
used to initiate the BT request. In the case of discrete I/O modules,
simply by entering the adapter in the Logix5550 organizer, data is
transferred without specific instructions required.
The process for completing block transfers on remote I/O remains
consistent with all adapters products. All the remote I/O network
characteristics defined for the PLC-5 remote I/O scanner are the same
for the 1756-DHRIO remote I/O scanner.

The message timeout for the BT message is fixed at 4.5 seconds. This
timeout is a ControlLogix network response timeout associated with
the connection established between the 1756-DHRIO module and the
Logix5550 controller. There is a primary timeout for the BT response
that is remote I/O network based. This timeout occurs in 4 seconds if
the I/O module fails to respond to the BT message.
Remote I/O Operation
Block Transfer ‘Pass-Through’
Messages
10-13
DH+ ‘Block Transfer (BT) Pass-Through’ messages are specific DH+
(PCCC) messages sent to an RIO channel, where it causes an RIO
Block Transfer.
To target a DH+ ‘BT Pass-Through’ message to an RIO channel on a
1756-DHRIO module, the final destination of the DH+ message must
be the 1756-DHRIO module with the RIO channel.
In the case of Local DH+ Messaging, the bridging 1756-DHRIO
module must have its default slot configured to match the location
(slot) of the final destination 1756-DHRIO module (module with the
RIO channel).
In the case of Remote DH+ Messaging, the destination link ID and
destination node of the DH+ message must be set to the final
destination 1756-DHRIO module (module with the RIO channel).
For example, if the target is an RIO channel on a 1756-DHRIO
module in slot 5 of a ControlLogix chassis and remote DH+
messaging is used, the destination link ID is set to the ControlLogix
chassis link ID and the remote destination node is set to 5.
Important: To send DH+ ‘Pass-Through’ messages to a
1756-DHRIO module, the module must be configured
with a valid routing table, as described in chapter 3, even
if both channels are configured for RIO.

This chapter contains three example applications. Each example
explains what steps must be taken to perform these operations.
Important: In these examples, only channel B is configured as a
remote I/O scanner. You can configure both channels as
remote I/O scanners simultaneously if necessary.
If only one channel is configured as a remote I/O
scanner, we recommend you use channel B. If you
configure channel A as a remote I/O scanner, you cannot
use the programming terminal on the front of the
1756-DHRIO module for DH+ access.

What This Appendix Contains
This appendix describes PCCC commands that your module
will execute.
Echo
Any data sent in the echo command is returned in the echo reply.
CMD=06h, FNC=00
ID Host and Status
This command allows you to check the location and status of the
controlling intelligent device, such as a PLC-5, that is connected to
the DHRIO network.
CMD=06h, FNC=03
Read DH+ Diagnostic Counters
Diagnostic counters are bytes of information stored in RAM in you
1756-DHRIO module. The counters occupy a block of the module’s
internal scratch RAM. Your module’s counters wrap around to zero
when they overflow.
Counters are used to record events that can be used in debugging and
long-term reliability analysis. You must issue a diagnostic read to
check the information in your module’s counters.
CMD=06h, FNC=01
Reset DH+ Diagnostic Counters
After reading your 1756-DHRIO module’s diagnostic counters, you
may want to reset them back to zero to clear that block of your
module’s internal scratch RAM.
