19 Modicon M221, M241, and M251 logic controllers The embedded Ethernet communication ports in Modicon M221, M241, and M251 logic controllers and in the Modicon TM4ES4 communication module optimize the capability for integration into factory network architectures. Modicon M221, M241, and M251 logic controllers can be easily integrated into typical architectures: v machine-to-device (variable speed drives, remote I/O modules, operator dialog terminals) with the I/O Scanner function v machine-to-machine with the NGVL function v machine-to-supervisory system with the Modbus Client/Server and EtherNet/IP adapter functions Ethernet also brings transparency to the factory, in particular - thanks to the firewall functions - making it possible to perform the following functions securely from any point on the network: 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, by means of the Web servers embedded in Modicon M241 and M251 controllers. Security can be enhanced through the use of VPN modems; refer to our partner program on our website > Products and Services > Automation and Control > Collaborative Automation Partner Program.
