Modbus is a data communications protocol that enables data to be exchanged between a master and multiple slaves. It is a popular automation communication protocol and supports the connection of industrial electronic devices. Modbus can coexist simultaneously with Ethernet TCP/IP at the same physical interface. The data are sent via TCP/IP packets.
This Modbus TCP app allows the ctrlX CORE to be connected to other third-party devices via Modbus TCP. No PLC is necessary to operate the app.The data from the Modbus devices is directly available for all apps on the ctrlX CORE via the real-time data layer. They can be read and written.
The Modbus TCP is configured in the web interface as well as in the datalyer of the ctrlX CORE.
The Modbus app is supporting the following features
Communication with Modbus network
Configuration of the Modbus device
Administration of the Modbus device
Configure a S20 EtherCAT bus coupler as a Modbus device:
