Supervisor with use 10 Neuron



  • Good evening I need information for a client.
    I would like to know if I would build a complex system with 10 neuron PLCs .. all connected by RS485 bus .. I would like to know if using only a Neuron of 10 connected all in series / parallel .. you can create the graphics through the mervis all on one PLC enclosing all the points but all the other 9 remaining PLC..Type concentrator .. I would also like to know if all the points created and made visible in the engine .. can be inserted and viewed by a classic scada system .. with mdbus protocol ..
    is it possible to connect all the Neurons via rs485..but only one of them connect it to a scada system connected to it via TCP?
    Thank you

    Yes, you can, but the response time will be relatively slow with 10 PLCs. It would be better to connect them with Ethernet and use SSCP as a concentrator protocol. You can use a separate network only for the neurons so that it does not connect outside. A separate internal Neuron-only SSCP network will also be much more secure than plain RS485 Modbus. But you can also use RS485.

    If you have a SCADA tool which works as a Modbus server (i.e. slave) it should work with Mervis fine. Mervis does not contain a TCP Modbus server though, so the other way around - a Modbus client (i.e. master) device - will not work over TCP.



  • I apologize if I use 10 Neurons connected via a TCP network with IP inequalities of the same family, is it possible to contract HMI graphics all the Neuron PLCs in one?
    Type a master to make us clear.
    If yes, how should I do?
    could you send me an example via screenshoot? thank you

    You should be able to use the instructions in chapter 4.5 of the manual I have sent you via a private message.
