Product Information

Product Description

Get xPico-WiFi capabilities now with Modbus.  This module adds Modbus/TCP on the Ethernet side to Modbus/RTU or Modbus/ASCII on the serial side. When attached to a Modbus serial slave(s) it converts Modbus/TCP requests from 1 or 2 clients on the network into serial Modbus/RTU or /ASCII requests. Modbus serial responses are converted back to Modbus/TCP and delivered to the original client.

This Device Server allows users to integrate new and existing Modbus/RTU and Modbus/ASCII serial devices to newer TCP/IP network-based devices.

When it comes to data communications for industrial control systems, Modbus is supported by the most manufacturers. The Modbus/RTU protocol defines how a “master” device polls one or more “slave” devices to read and write data in real time over RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 serial data communication.

Although not the most powerful protocol available, its rare simplicity allows not only rapid implementation but also enough flexibility to be applied in a large number of industrial situations.

Modbus/TCP, an extension of Modbus/RTU, defines how Modbus/RTU and Modbus/ASCII messages are encoded within and transported over TCP/IP-based networks. Modbus/TCP is just as simple to implement and flexible to apply as the original Modbus/RTU.

Features

  • Supports two Modbus/TCP server connections
  • Supports Modbus/TCP on the ap0 or wlan0 network interface
  • The device server can be addressed in Modbus/TCP using Device ID 0 or 255
  • Configurable pins can be read or written as inputs or coils using Modbus/TCP. Modbus Input and Modbus Coil roles can be assigned under the Configurable Pin Manager (CPM). (xPico-Wifi embedded module only)
  • Responds to Read Device Identification (function code 43, sub-function 14)
