Install a ControlNet Communication Module
Objectives
This chapter shows how to:
• Install and replace a communication module on the PanelView
Plus or PanelView Plus CE terminal.
• Connect the communication module to a ControlNet network.
The communication modules are available as separate catalog
numbers for specific communication protocols.
Install Module on 700-1500
Terminals
This section shows how to install a communication module on a
PanelView Plus 700-1500 or PanelView Plus CE 700-1500 devices. The
module installs over the logic module.
TIP
The logic module must be attached to the display
module before you attach the communication
module.
To install a communication module:
1. Disconnect power from the terminal.
WARNING
Do not connect or disconnect any communication
cable with power applied to this device or any
device on the network. An electrical arc could cause
an explosion in hazardous location installations. Be
sure that power is removed or the area is
nonhazardous before proceeding.
2. If the display module is removed from panel, set the module,
display side down, on a clean, flat, stable surface to prevent
scratches.

Do not connect more than one ControlNet network
to the communication module. If you attempt to
connect a second network to the module, your
communication system will operate erratically.
After installing the ControlNet communication module on the
terminal, you can connect the module:
• Directly to a ControlNet network, which requires a tap
• To a device already connected to the ControlNet network
WARNING
When used in a Class I, Division 2, hazardous
location, this equipment must be mounted in a
suitable enclosure with proper wiring that complies
with the governing electrical codes.
Do not connect or disconnect any communication
cable with power applied to this device or any
device on the network. An electrical arc could
cause an explosion in hazardous location
installations. Be sure that power is removed or the
area is nonhazardous before proceeding.

IMPORTANT
If you connect the product to a cable system that
does not support redundant media, connect the tap
dropline to the BNC connector labeled Channel A.
Channel B is left unconnected.
If the cable system is redundant, connect the product
so that all devices on the network use the same cable
for the same channel. That is, all Channel A
connectors connect to one cable; all Channel B
connectors connect to the other cable.
TIP
If you use a non-redundant cable system, all
ControlNet devices must be on the same channel,
Channel A.

Configure Unscheduled Communications
Objectives
This chapter shows how to configure a sample ControlNet network
using Unscheduled messaging between a PanelView Plus or
PanelView Plus CE terminal and an Allen-Bradley controller.
Configuring Unscheduled messaging is similar to setting up Ethernet
communications. You do not need to configure settings in the
ControlNet scanner module or use RSNetWorx to configure the
network. Unscheduled communications uses the left over bandwidth
of the ControlNet network to establish its communications.
Software Requirements
Verify that the correct software/firmware is installed on the
development computer and the PanelView Plus or PanelView Plus CE
terminal.

File
23
To take advantage of ControlNet Scheduled messaging, you need to
configure the PLC ladder logic file so that it knows which tags are
producers and consumers of data from the PanelView Plus /
PanelView Plus CE. These tags are typically configured as Controller
Tags, because a Program Tag cannot be configured as a consumer.
Procedures in this chapter will show how to configure existing DINT
type Controller Tags in a 1756-L63 ControlLogix Processor to be
producers and consumers:
• Output_to_PVP (Producer)
• Input_from_PVP (Consumer)

27
2. In the Tag Properties dialog, configure the Input_From_PVP tag
with the Tag Type=Consumed and Data Type=DINT. The
processor will be a consumer of data from the PanelView Plus.
3. On the Connections tab, configure the connection properties of
this consumed tag so that the device producing the data is PVP,
the Remote Data value is 1, and the Request Packet Interval
(RPI) is 20 ms. When finished, click OK.
• The Remote Data value is a connection ID that must correspond
to the PVP producer connections configured in RSNetWorx.
• The Requested Packet Interval (RPI) value is determined by how
often you want a particular piece of I/O or Scheduled
peer-to-peer data to be transmitted within the Scheduled
bandwidth of the Network Update Interval.

Use the RSNetWorx software to configure the ControlNet Scanner
Module to read and write Scheduled data from the PanelView Plus to
the Allen-Bradley controller. This is accomplished in two steps:
• Configure the communication module
• Configure RSNetWorx for ControlNet
Chapter 4 describes how to upgrade a 2711P-RN15S Series A, Rev. A
communication module to Rev. C for Scheduled messaging.

Plus CE, the terminal requires some basic settings to establish
communications with the ControlNet communication card.
1. Create a new RSLinx Enterprise communication configuration by
double-clicking on Communication Setup, select Create a new
configuration, and click Finish.
2. Click on the Target tab of the communication window. To set
the path for the target, the devices and drivers must be added
manually because the development computer is not connected
by ControlNet to the ControlLogix processor.

This chapter shows how to upgrade the firmware for a 2711P-RN15S
Series A, Rev. A ControlNet Communications Module to Rev. C for
Scheduled messaging. This also applies to terminals pre-configured
and shipped from the factory with a ControlNet Module. During the
upgrade, the module firmware is updated from v2.7 to v3.8 or later.
The firmware upgrade is available at the Rockwell Automation
Technical Support website under Firmware Updates and RSView ME.
All 2711P-RN15C ControlNet communication modules for PanelView
Plus 400 and 600 support ControlNet Scheduled Messaging.
