Linux Development Module for ControlLogix


The MVI56E-LDM module is a ControlLogix® backplane compatible module that allows Rockwell Automation ControlLogix® processors to interface with relatively any Ethernet or serial device. 
With the available development kit DVD, you are the developer who controls exactly what this module can and cannot do.

ProSoft Technology’s Linux Development Modules make it possible for users to easily develop and deploy C/C++ applications that interface with Bar Code Scanners, Legacy ASCII protocols, Terminal Port Emulation, Printer Drivers(Alarm/Status printer), or any other device requiring custom/proprietary Ethernet and serial communications.
