About Allen-Bradley DF-1 Communications

The CIMPLICITY Allen-Bradley DF-1 Communication Enabler can be used to communicate with Allen-Bradley Programmable Controllers through the DF-1 serial communication protocol.

Using this option, CIMPLICITY software can:

  • Poll points at a user-defined scan rate or on demand.
  • Read and write single points or arrays.
  • Perform Engineering Unit conversion for meaningful point value displays
  • Issue alarms to user when a device goes down.
