Today's PCs are evolving toward the replacement of RS232 and other serial ports with several USB ports. Also, new PC notebooks no longer provide type-III PCMCIA slots. Consequently, connecting a PC directly to products such as PLCs, HMI or remote equipment through a Modbus Plus network becomes increasingly difficult or impossible, thus depriving a user of basic functions such as programming or debugging applications.
Modbus Plus application
- PLCs (Modicon Quantum, Momentum, Premium, TSX Micro, Compact)
- IP 20/IP 67 I/O
- Operator terminals
