1/8 Presentation Modicon M580 automation platform Presentation The Modicon M580 automation platform allows two types of architecture - standard applications and high-availability applications - which comprise the following devices: b A BMEP58 pppp processor or two BMEH58 pppp processors for Hot Standby architecture b Modicon X80 I/O modules b Modicon X80 specialized modules (HART, weighing, counter, etc.) b Modicon X80 backplanes (X-bus or dual profile X-bus and Ethernet) b Standalone or redundant X80 power supplies b Unity Pro The Modicon M580 automation platform meets the needs of specialist applications such as: b Manufacturing and large infrastructures b Water and Waste Water (WWW) b Food & Beverage (F&B) b Mining, Minerals, Metals (MMM) b Oil & Gas (O&G) Processor modules The BMEP58 pppp /BMEH58 pppp processor range constitutes the core of a complete control solution based on Modicon M580 specific and compatible modules and racks. Standalone processors The standalone BMEP58 pppp processor is a modular automation processor that physically occupies two module slots on a backplane. BMEP58 pppp processors can be installed on BMEXBP pppp Ethernet + X-bus racks and BMXXBP pppp (PV02 or later) X-bus racks. Use of the redundant power supply BMXCPS4002 p in the dual power supply backplane BMEXBP0602/1002 provides higher system availability. The processors can manage the 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: v Ethernet Modbus/TCP network, EtherNet/IP network v AS-Interface actuator/sensor buses and RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) serial link v Modbus serial link b Expert modules The nine processors in this range have different memory capacities, processing speeds, number of I/O, number of supported local racks, and embedded Ethernet port functions (see page 1/28). Redundant processors The Hot Standby BMEH58 pppp processor is dedicated for the Hot Standby architecture that physically occupies two module slots on a backplane. BMEH58 pppp processors can be installed on BMEXBP pppp Ethernet + X-bus racks, BMXXBP pppp (PV02 or later) X-bus racks, and the dual power supply racks BMEXBP0602 / 1002 (allowing the use of redundant power supplies BMXCPS4002 p ).
