1/11 Presentation (continued) Modicon M580 automation platform Processor performance The M580 standalone processor supports up to 8 local racks (depending on the CPU performance level), using existing X80 I/O modules and accessories. The M580 processor must be installed in the main rack, which can be a dual (Ethernet + X-bus) bus rack. M580 PLCs can support up to 7 expansion racks of 4, 6, 8, or 12 slots for single power supply and 6 or 10 slots for dual power supply. These standalone and Hot Standby processors physically occupy two module slots on a backplane. The processors can manage Modicon X80 I/O platform in a single-rack or multi-rack Ethernet PAC station. Their slots can be equipped with: b Discrete I/O modules b Analog I/O modules b Counter modules b Communication modules: Ethernet Modbus/TCP network, EtherNet/IP network, Modbus SL b AS-Interface actuator/sensor buses and RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) serial link b Expert modules The 9 standalone processors and the 3 Hot Standby processors have different memory capacities, processing speeds, number of I/O, number of supported local racks, and embedded Ethernet port functions (see page 1/28). The M580 processor range offers the choice of 6 memory levels from 4 MB to 64 MB (see page 1/24 for more information). It also offers the choice of 2 types of Ethernet device network port: b For BMEP58 pp 20 processors: distributed I/O ports (DIO) to connect distributed equipment b For BMEP58 pp 40 and BMEH58 pp 40 processors: distributed I/O ports (DIO) to connect distributed equipment and remote I/O ports (RIO) to connect remote equipment This range also offers different performance levels: BMEP5840 pp processors are twice as fast as BMEP5830 pp processors, which are themselves twice as fast as BMEP5810 pp and BMEP5820 pp processors. With the new processor models, BMEP585040/BMEP586040 processors have 20% higher calculating speed than BMEP5840 pp processors. An optional 4 GB SD memory card is supplied with M580 processors for application and data storage. BMEP586040 processor PF151920A 2 1 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2 1 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
