1/10 Presentation (continued) Modicon M580 automation platform Three rack types Standard applications M580 processors can work in either an X-bus rack or a dual (Ethernet + X-bus) rack. Ethernet backplanes are available with 4, 8, and 12 slots. The M580 Ethernet backplanes provide the X-bus connection and Ethernet connectivity. A single configuration can support up to 7 standard BMX racks used as expansion racks in addition to the main rack, separated by a cumulative distance of up to 30 meters/ 98.425 feet . An Ethernet RIO (EIO) drop is composed of one or two racks that can be either a BMX X-bus rack or a BME Ethernet rack. The expansion rack can only be a BMX X-bus rack. All the Ethernet racks are available in a version suitable for use in harsh environments. An Ethernet switch is embedded in the Ethernet backplane. This switch is connected to several slots on the backplane. In the case of 12-slot backplanes, not all slots have Ethernet connectivity. Only 8 slots are available for Ethernet, but they are placed in several locations along the rack for maximum flexibility of use (see page 1/28) . High-availability applications b For higher availability, M580 processors or X80 drops can work in a dual power supply backplane BMEXBP pp 02 , which supports the redundant power supply BMXCPS4002 p in pairs. b Dual power supply backplanes are available with 6 and 10 dual (Ethernet + X-bus) slots, in which a maximum of 4 out of the 6 slots and 8 out of the 10 slots are available for Ethernet. Note : It is not possible to plug a standard power supply into a dual power supply backplane; the dual power supply backplane is only compatible with the redundant power supply. However, a single redundant power supply can be plugged into the standard backplane. Cybersecurity ready The Modicon M580 is Schneider Electrics most cyber-secure platform thanks to the Achilles Level 2 certification and its advanced built-in cybersecurity features. The Achilles L2 cybersecurity certification demonstrates the robustness of the Modicon M580 platform under both extreme and common Ethernet conditions. The Modicon M580 automation platform also offers the following features: b Extended access control for the PLC via an access control list allowing IP addresses and TCP ports to be controlled b Password protection for remote programming changes b Possibility to disable any unused service (FTP, HTTP, DHCP, etc.) b Integrity check of the firmware b Possibility to lock remote write commands b Integrity check of Unity PRO executable files b Any security events can be logged in a SYSLOG database b Communications with SCADA or Unity PRO secured via IPSEC protocol Note: For further information, please consult our website Achiles Level 2 certification 8-slot Ethernet + X-bus rack 6-slot dual power supply backplane 2 1 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2 1 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
