Modicon M221, M241 and M251 logic controllers
The embedded Ethernet communication ports in the Modicon M221, M241 or M251 logic controllers and in the Modicon TM4ES4 communication module optimize machine integration in factory network architectures. Modicon M221, M241 and M251 logic controllers can easily be integrated in architectures such as: v machine to devices (variable speed drives, remote I/O modules, HMI terminals) with the I/O Scanner function v machine to machine with the NGVL function v machine to supervision with the Modbus Client/Server, EtherNet/IP Adapter and OPC UA Server function Ethernet also brings transparency to the factory, in particular - thanks to the firewall functions - making it possible from any point on the network to safely: v program, monitor a controller or download an application v access device parameters, variable speed drives for example A simple web browser can be used to access machines anytime anywhere, using a tablet or smartphone, for example, using the web servers embedded in Modicon M241 and M251 controllers. Safety can be enhanced by the use of VPN modems (see our Partner program on our website www.schneider-electric.com > Products and Services > Automation and Control > Collaborative Automation Partner Program).
