The network communications protocol Modbus TCP is now available in CIMCO DNC-Max as an integrated messaging protocol that can be configured like any other port. The protocol enables direct communication between DNC-Max and PLCs that support Modbus – removing the need for intermediary network devices to convert PLC signals into messages.
The protocol enables data communication to/from any PLC or network device that support Modbus TCP such as the Moxa ioLogic 1200 series. The Modbus TCP protocol includes all the required configuration options including support for all datatypes such as String, Double, Float, 16/32/64-bit integer and Boolean.
Support for the Modbus TCP messaging protocol was released recently as part of CIMCO Software version 8.06.03.
