Can the BMXNRP0200 fibre converter module operate on a rack without a CPU or Remote IO module and does it need to be included in the PLC project?


21 November 2022

The BMXNRP0200 can be used on a rack with only a power supply and in this case, it does not need to be included in a PLC project. There is no configuration required as the NRP0200 is just a basic media converter.
If used on the CPU rack or a remote IO rack, then it does need to be included in the bus configuration in Unity Pro/Control expert, as the PLC needs to know when that slot is occupied.
