Modbus Interface Supported Features
Industrial Communication Toolbox™ supports the Modbus® interface over TCP/IP or Serial RTU. You can use it to communicate with Modbus servers, such as controlling a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller), communicating with a temperature controller, controlling a stepper motor, sending data to a DSP, reading bulk memory from a PAC controller, or monitoring temperature and humidly on a Modbus probe.
Using the Modbus interface, you can do the following tasks, which correspond to the Modbus function codes listed in the table.
|Functionality||Modbus Function Code|
|Read and write coils||1, 5, 15|
|Read discrete inputs||2|
|Read and write holding registers||3, 6, 16|
|Read input registers||4|
|Perform mask writes on holding registers||22|
|Perform write/read (in one operation) on holding registers||23|
