Battery Life Advisory
The MVI46, MVI56, MVI69, and MVI71 modules use a rechargeable Lithium Vanadium Pentoxide battery to backup
the 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 the battery becomes fully charged. After it is fully charged, the battery provides
backup power for the CMOS setup and the real-time clock for approximately 21 days. When the battery is fully
discharged, the module will revert to the default BIOS and clock settings.
Note: The battery is not user replaceable.

MVI56-LTQ ♦ ControlLogix Platform
Limitorque Valve Actuator Master Communication Module
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-LTQ jumper configuration:
1
2
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.

User Manual
Installing 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-LTQ 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-LTQ 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.
1
2
Turn power OFF.
Align the module with the top and bottom guides, and slide it into the rack
until the module is firmly against the backplane connector.
3
4
With a firm but steady push, snap the module into place.
Check that the holding clips on the top and bottom of the module are securely
in the locking holes of the rack.
Make a note of the slot location. You must identify the slot in which the
module is installed in order for the sample program to work correctly. Slot
numbers are identified on the green circuit board (backplane) of the
ControlLogix rack.
Turn power ON.

2.3.2 MsgRespTm
This register represents the message response timeout period in 1 millisecond
increments. This is the time which a port configured as a Master will wait before
re-transmitting a command if no response is received from the addressed slave.
The value is set depending on the expected slave response times.
A value of 200 milliseconds should be the minimal setting. Values from 200 to
65535 (0xffff) are permitted.
2.3.3 MaxSlaves
This value is used by the module to optimize the number of slaves polled by the
module. The value entered here can range from 1 to 150, and should always
meet or exceed the last slave in the Active Slave Table.
2.3.4 BTRMax
This value is not used in the current version of the software.

2.3.5 BlkDelay
This is an empirical value used by the module to balance the amount of time the
module spends block transferring and the amount spent handling port
communications. The value entered is used as a loop counter in the module,
where each time through the loop the count is incremented. When the count
equals the Block Transfer Delay Counter a Block Transfer sequence is initiated.
Example: In Master Mode applications with the module in a remote rack, the
frequency of command execution can be improved by entering a value of 75 to
150. The value must be determined empirically.
2.3.6 LastState
This value determines the state of the Limitorque read register values that are
returned to the PLC upon the detection of a communication failure state (that is,
comm has failed on both Port A and B).
Value

Loop Mode (Port 1 and 2 alternating)
Port 1 polling only
Port 2 polling only
The Network Loop Mode emulates Limitorque’s polling scheme that takes
advantage of the actuator ability to repeat data transmissions and to operate in a
looped mode. In this mode, the module will alternate communications between
Port 1 and 2. Command failures on one port will be retried on the other port.

2.3.10 SpecPolling
Enables polling of specific registers in addition to the standard polling. A value
other than zero will cause an additional poll request to be sent to the slaves that
are enabled. The results are placed in registers 8 and 9 in the slave response
data block.
Using this feature has a performance cost as the time available for the standard
polling is shared with the special polling.

Any value other than 0, 1, or 2 will tell the module to poll that corresponding
register number. This been added to allow for expanded use of the
SpecPolling tag. If low byte is set to 1 or 2 then the existing logic will will
remain consistent for backwards compatibility.
2.3.11 Use_CTS
This parameter defines if the CTS line is to be monitored for the communication
process. If the parameter is set to 0, the line will not be monitored. If the
parameter is set to 1, the modem control line must be set after the RTS line is
asserted for communications to occur.
2.3.12 BlkFailCnt
This parameter defines the number of successive block transfers that must occur
before the communication channels are shutdown. If the value is set to 0,
communications will continue on the ports even if the data transfer between the
processor and module fails. If the value is set to greater-than 0, the module will
suspend communications when the number of block transfer failures set is
exceeded. The valid range for this parameter is 0 to 65535.

Ladder logic is required for application of the MVI56-LTQ 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.

User Manual
Information in this structure contains the status and monitor information for each
valve in the system. This information should be considered by the user control
logic to determine the status and control required for each valve to be utilized in a
system. It is important to note that slave 1 has an array index of 0. This offset
applies to all valves (slave 150 has an index of 149).
The next data set received from the module is the DoneBits array. Each slave in
the system is associated with a bit in the array. Each element contains the done
bit status for 16 slave units ([0]=slaves 1 to 16, [1]=slaves 17 to 32, and so on). It
is important to use these bits to clear the commands issued using the next data
sets. Commands issued to the module to generate messages on the Limitorque
Valve Network are issued in a one-shot operation. After an event command is
issued to the slave, the done bit for the slave is set. This bit is held high for one
scan of the module and then is reset in the data transfer block. Ladder logic
should clear the commands for each slave using the status of the done bit.
The last set of data in the module object contains the control information for the
valves. This data is to be controlled by the ladder logic. An array is defined for
each of the command instructions available through the module. Each bit in the
array is associated with a slave. Bit 0 in word 0 corresponds to slave 1, and Bit 0
in word 1 corresponds to slave 17. An array of LTQCont objects is defined for the
contactor engage/disengage commands. The following table describes the
structure of this object.
Name
Engage
Disengate
Data Type
INT[10]

Description
Engage Command
Disengage Command
In order to execute one of the commands, set the bit for the selected slave in the
array. For example, to open slave-3 valve, set bit 2 in word 0 of the Open array.
For the analog control commands, set the value for the analog first (AnalogPos[
]), then set the analog control array bit (AnalogCmd[ ]). The analog position
requires two commands. The first command issued by the module sets the
position in the valve. The second command instructs the valve to seek the new
position.

has exited.
To clear the condition, follow these steps:
1 Turn off power to the rack.
2 Remove the card from the rack.
3 Verify that all jumpers are set correctly.
4 If the module requires a Compact Flash card, verify that the card is installed
correctly.
5 Re-insert the card in the rack and turn the power back on.
6 Verify correct configuration data is being transferred to the module from the
ControlLogix controller.
If the module's OK LED does not turn GREEN, verify that the module is inserted
completely into the rack. If this does not cure the problem, contact ProSoft
Technology Technical Support.

Reading Status Data from the Module
The MVI56-LTQ module returns a 22-word Status Data Block that can be used to
determine the module’s operating status. This data is transferred to the
ControlLogix processor continuously with each read block.
The Configuration/Debug port provides the following functionality:
 Full view of the module’s configuration data
 View of the module’s status data
 Complete display of the module’s internal database (registers 0 to 3999)
 Version Information
 Control over the module (warm boot, cold boot, transfer configuration)
 Facility to upload and download the module’s configuration file
4.3.1 Required Software
In order to send and receive data over the serial port (COM port) on your
computer to the module, you must use a communication program (terminal
emulator).
A simple communication program called HyperTerminal is pre-installed with
recent versions of Microsoft Windows operating systems. If you are connecting
from a machine running DOS, you must obtain and install a compatible
communication program. The following table lists communication programs that
have been tested by ProSoft Technology.

4.3.2 The Configuration/Debug Menu
The Configuration and Debug menu for this module is arranged as a tree
structure, with the Main Menu at the top of the tree, and one or more sub-menus
for each menu command. The first menu you see when you connect to the
module is the Main menu.
Because this is a text-based menu system, you enter commands by typing the
command letter from your computer keyboard in the terminal application (for
example, HyperTerminal). The module does not respond to mouse movements
or clicks. The command executes as soon as you press the command letter —
you do not need to press [Enter]. When you type a command letter, a new
screen will be displayed in your terminal application.
Navigation
All of the submenus for this module contain commands to redisplay the menu or
return to the previous menu. You can always return from a submenu to the next
higher menu by pressing [M] on your keyboard.
The organization of the menu structure is represented in simplified form in the
following illustration:
The remainder of this section shows the menus available for this module, and
briefly discusses the commands available to you.
Keystrokes
The keyboard commands on these menus are usually not case sensitive. You
can enter most commands in lowercase or uppercase 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 and /.
Also, take care to distinguish the different uses for uppercase letter "eye" (I),
lowercase letter "el" (L), and the number one (1). Likewise, uppercase letter "oh"
(O) and the number zero (0) are not interchangeable. Although these characters
look alike on the screen, they perform different actions on the module and may
not be used interchangeably.

Product Specifications
The MVI56 Limitorque Valve Actuator Master Communication Module allows
ControlLogix compatible processors to interface easily with Limitorque Valve
Actuators and other Limitorque protocol compatible devices.
The MVI56-LTQ module acts as an input/output module between the Limitorque
valve network and the ControlLogix processor. The data transfer from the
ControlLogix processor is asynchronous from the actions on the network. The
1500-word register space in the module transfers the valve information from the
module to the processor. Ladder logic is responsible for control of the valves.
Data transferred from the processor to the module instructs the module to
execute commands to valves on the Limitorque network.

Limitorque Valve Actuator Master Communication Module
Functional Overview
5.2.1 General Concepts
The following discussion explains several concepts that are important for
understanding module operation.
ControlLogix Processor Not in Run
Whenever the module detects that the processor has gone out of the Run mode
(that is, Fault or PGM), the ports can be shut down as prescribed in the user
configuration. When the processor is returned to a running state, the module will
resume communications on the network.
Backplane Data Transfer
The MVI56-LTQ module communicates directly over the ControlLogix backplane.
Data is paged between the module and the ControlLogix processor across the
backplane using the module's input and output images. The update frequency of
the images is determined by the scheduled scan rate defined by the user for the
module and the communication load on the module. Typical updates are in the
range of 1 to 10 milliseconds.
This bi-directional transference of data is accomplished by the module filling in
data in the module's input image to send to the processor. Data in the input
image is placed in the Controller Tags in the processor by the ladder logic. The
input image for the module is set to 250 words. This large data area permits fast
throughput of data between the module and the processor.
The processor inserts data to the module's output image to transfer to the
module. The module's program extracts the data and places it in the module's
internal database. The output image for the module is set to 248 words. This
large data area permits fast throughput of data from the processor to the module.

The following illustration shows the data transfer method used to move data
between the ControlLogix processor, the MVI56-LTQ module and the Limitorque
valve network.
All data transferred between the module and the processor over the backplane is
through the input and output images. Ladder logic must be written in the
ControlLogix processor to interface the input and output image data with data
defined in the Controller Tags. All data used by the module is stored in its internal
database. The following illustration shows the layout of the database:

Data contained in this database is paged through the input and output images by
coordination of the ControlLogix ladder logic and the MVI56-LTQ module's
program. Up to 248 words of data can be transferred from the module to the
processor at a time. Up to 247 words of data can be transferred from the
processor to the module. The read and write block identification codes in each
data block determine the function to be performed or the content of the data
block. The block identification codes used by the module are listed below:
Block Number

Description
On read, this block contains the valve information for slaves 1 to 20. For the
write operation, this block contains the digital command control data.
On read, this block contains the valve information for slaves 21 to 40. For the
write operation, this block contains the analog command control data.
These blocks are only used for the read operation. They contain valve data for
up to 20 slave units.
This is the configuration data block transferred from the processor
This block is sent from the processor to the module to instruct the module to
perform the warm-boot operation.
This block is sent from the processor to the module to instruct the module to

The Read Block ID is an index value used to determine the location of where the
data will be placed in the ControlLogix processor controller tag array of module
read data. Each transfer can move up to 200 words (block offsets 2 to 201) of
data representing the data for up to 20 valves. In addition to moving valve data,
the block also contains status data for the module. This last set of data is
transferred with each new block of data and is used for high-speed data
movement.

MVI56-LTQ ♦ ControlLogix Platform
Limitorque Valve Actuator Master Communication Module
The LTQ Module returns Done Bit Data to the ladder logic. A single bit is
returned per slave address, allowing ladder logic to be used to clear the
Command Enable bits. The following important points should be noted about the
Command Done bits:
1 There is only one bit returned per slave address, not one bit per command
per slave. The implication of this is that one Done Bit must be used to clear
all possible Enable bits for one slave address.
2 The Done Bit is a positive indication that the module executed the command.
It is NOT an indication of the command’s success. A Done Bit is returned to
the ladder logic whenever the command was completed without error or not.
This allows all commands to be unlatched. To determine if there is a
communication problem with a slave, verify the Channel A/B communication
status bits in the valve data Status field.
3 The Done Bit data registers in the module are cleared and then updated prior
to each backplane transfer sequence. This is done to ensure that the ladder
logic receives the quickest possible acknowledgment of a command’s
execution.
The structure of the Done Bit Data in the input image from the module is as
follows:

The following table lists the relationship between the word/bit combination and
the slave index in the module:
The module status data starts at word 212 in the read block. This information can
be used to determine the "health" of the module and should be moved to the
status object in the processor logic.
The Write Block ID associated with the block requests data from the ControlLogix
processor. Under normal program operation, the module sequentially sends read
blocks and requests write blocks. For example, if eight read and two write blocks
are used with the application, the sequence will be as follows:
R0W0R1W1R2W0R3W1R4W0R5W1R6W0R7W1R0W0
This sequence will continue until interrupted by other write block numbers sent by
the controller or by operator control through the module’s Configuration/Debug
port.

Command Control Blocks
Command control blocks are special blocks used to control the module or
request special data from the module. The current version of the software
supports two command control blocks; warm boot and cold boot.
Warm Boot
This block is sent from the ControlLogix processor to the module (output image)
when the module is required to perform a warm-boot (software reset) operation.
The block is commonly sent to the module any time configuration modifications
are made in the controller tags data area. This causes the module to read the
new configuration and restart. The following table shows this structure:

5.2.2 Data Flow Between MVI56-LTQ Module and ControlLogix
Processor
The following topics describe the flow of data between the two pieces of
hardware (ControlLinx processor and the MVI56-LTQ module) and nodes on the
Limitorque valve network. In the Master mode, the MVI56-LTQ module is
responsible for issuing read or write commands to slave devices on the
Limitorque valve network. These commands are generated from a fixed set of
commands contained in the module. The module issues the read commands
continuously. Write commands are issued under ladder logic control. The
following flow chart and associated table describe the flow of data into and out of
the module.
1
The module obtains configuration data from the ControlLogix processor. This
configuration completely defines the operation parameters for the module.
2 After configuration, the module begins transmitting read commands to the
valves on the network. If an event command (a bit in one of the digital control
word arrays is set) is recognized by the module, it will issue the associated
write command to the valve. The done bit for the event will be set in the
DoneBit array.
3 Presuming successful processing by the node specified in the command, a
response message is received into the driver for processing.
4 Data received from the node on the network is passed into the module’s
internal database (only for read function messages).
5 Status and done bit array data is returned to the ControlLogix processor.
Refer to Module Configuration (page 21) for a complete description of the
parameters required for configuration of the module.

Cable Connections
The application ports on the MVI56-LTQ module support RS-232, RS-422, and
RS-485 interfaces. Please inspect 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:
5.3.2 RS-232 Application Port(s)
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, here are the cable pinouts to connect to the port.

cable required for this interface is shown below:
Note: Terminating resistors are generally not required on the RS-485 network, unless you are
experiencing communication problems that can be attributed to signal echoes or reflections. In
these cases, installing a 120-ohm terminating resistor between pins 1 and 8 on the module
connector end of the RS-485 line may improve communication quality.
RS-485 and RS-422 Tip
If communication in the RS-422 or RS-485 mode does not work at first, despite
all attempts, try switching termination polarities. Some manufacturers interpret +
and -, or A and B, polarities differently.

MVI56-LTQ ♦ ControlLogix Platform
Limitorque Valve Actuator Master Communication Module
Polling Schemes
In Looped Mode, the LTQ provides communication redundancy to each
configured slave on the network. The LTQ monitors the health of each
communication path between port 1 and each configured slave and between port
2 and each configured slave. LTQ port 1 communication status between port 1
and the addressed slave is recorded in the slave Channel A status bit. LTQ port
2 communication status between port 2 and the addressed slave is recorded in
the slave Channel B status bit. Both Channel A and Channel B status bits are
located in the slave Status register, bits 10 and 11(Word 1, bits 10 and 11).
On a healthy network where all configured slaves are communicating; the LTQ
will first poll all slaves via port 1, then poll all slaves via port 2, back to port 1, and
so on. As each slave is successfully polled, the respective Channel bit is set to 0
in the slave Status register. Remember the LTQ port 1 equals Channel A and the
LTQ port 2 equals Channel B.
Should a slave not be reached on a poll, the LTQ will set the corresponding
Channel Fail bit to 1, switch to the other port and attempt to communicate with
the same slave. Should the slave not communicate from the second port, the
corresponding Channel Fail bit will be set to 1, and the LTQ will resume polling
on the original port. After the LTQ has completed polling all configured slaves on
the first port, the polling routine will switch to the other port and repeat the above
process.
Example:
There are 5 slaves on the network and slave number 3 has been turned off. The
LTQ is currently polling the slaves through the LTQ port 1 (Channel A). Slave
number 1 and 2 respond to the LTQ port 1 poll. Slave number 3 does not
respond to the port 1 poll causing the LTQ to set slave 3 Channel A bit to 1. The
LTQ now changes to port 2 (Channel B) and polls slave number 3. Slave number
3 does not respond to the port 2 poll causing the LTQ to set the slave 3 Channel
B bit to 1. Next the LTQ changes back to port 1 and attempts to poll slave
number 4. This communication attempt is successful and the LTQ now polls
slave number 5 through the LTQ port 1. Slave number 5 responds completing the
port 1 poll.
Next the LTQ repeats the process through port 2 (Channel B). Slave 1 and 2
respond, slave 3 does not respond and the LTQ sets the slave 3 Channel B bit to
1. The LTQ changes to port 1 (Channel A) and attempts to communicate with
slave 3. Slave 3 does not respond, the LTQ sets the slave 3 Channel A bit to 1,
switches back to port 2 and resumes polling the remainder of the configured
slaves. Once slaves 4 and 5 have been successfully polled via port 2, the LTQ
then switches to port 1 and repeats the polling process. The port alternation
process described above continues until slave 3 is powered on and the
communication fault clears.
Commands for slave control interrupt the polling process and are issued through
the current poll port. After the slave has acknowledged the command, the LTQ
resumes the polling process. In the event of a communication fault between the
current poll port and a commanded slave, the LTQ will issue the command
through the other communication port.

Example 1:
The LTQ is successfully communicating to each slave and sets the bits equating
to Channel A and B to 0. A value of 0 in the Channel A and B status indicate
successful communication.
Example 2:
The LTQ is successfully communicating to slaves 1, 2, 4, and 5 via both ports.
Slave number 3 is without power causing the slave 3 network board bypass
relays to de-energize. This de-energizing of the bypass relays shorts the signal
through the network board and isolates the slave from the DDC-100 network.
Example 3:
The LTQ is successfully communicating to slaves 1, 2, 3 via port 1 and 4, 5 via
port 2. When a slave does not communicate within a predetermined time-out
period the LTQ sets the corresponding Channel bit to a value of 1. This example
indicates a wiring problem between slave 3 & 4. This problem is typically a cable
breakage, short, or improperly terminated wire.
Example 4:
The LTQ is attempting to communicate to the slaves via both ports but is unable
to reach any slaves via port 2. This typically indicates a broken cable connection
at port 2 or at the first slave from port 2, broken or shorted cable between the
LTQ and the first slave from port 2, improperly terminated wires, or loss of power
to the RS-232/485 converter if attached to the LTQ port 2.

Example 5:
The LTQ is successfully communicating to each slave and sets the bits equating
to Channel A to 0. A value of 0 in the Channel A status indicates successful
communication.
Example 6:
The LTQ is successfully communicating to slave 1, 3, 4, and 5. Slave 2 does not
respond causing the LTQ to set slave 2 Status register bit 10 to 1. In this
example, slave 2 is without power causing the slave 2 network board bypass
relays to de-energize. This de-energizing of the bypass relays shorts the signal
through the network board and isolates the slave from the DDC-100 network.
Example 7:
The LTQ is successfully communicating to slaves 1 and 2 but is not able to
communicate to slaves 3, 4, and 5 causing the LTQ to set slave 3, 4, 5 Status
register bit 10 to 1. This typically indicates a broken or shorted cable between
slave 2 and 3, a broken cable connection at slave 2 or 3, improperly terminated
wires at slave 2 or 3, or loss of power to slaves 3, 4, and 5.
