Elpro Technologies has added powerful additional features for their Industrial wireless 802.11 Ethernet and serial device server family.
Elpro Technologies’ industrial 802.11 products now provide device server functionality with Modbus master capability for both Modbus TCP and serial Modbus RTU.
This new capability provides significant benefits in SCADA based application that requires a truly flexible I/O data transfer capability.
Some of the key onboard features now enable the 240U-E to act as a Modbus TCP Client (Master) or Server (Slave), act as a Modbus RTU serial Master and also communicate Modbus TCP Ethernet to RTU Gateway.
The new device server features allow you to:
- Connect to Modbus TCP and/or Modbus RTU Slave devices without the need for a standalone Master
- Convert message between Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU
- Manage independent connections to both Modbus TCP (Ethernet) and Modbus RTU (serial) devices at the same 802.11 unit simultaneously
Elpro Technologies’ industrial 802.11 family comprises the 240U-E WiFi unit, 905U-E 900MHz FH unit and 805U-E 869MHz unit for Europe.
These units are designed for high speed 802.11 wireless data networking in heavy industrial environments, providing Ethernet and serial connectivity simultaneously as a multi-port device server, controlling communications to multiple devices.
