Modbus TCP/IP Data Output

Modbus TCP/IP Data Output

The IQ Home devices support Modbus connections and implementations with a wide variety of PLCs. The visualization features of CODESYS are available and can be utilized to picture the data read from the Modbus registers of the devices. The IQ Home products are a great choice for anyone wishing to utilize them together with CODESYS. Using these devices enables PLC data visualization through Modbus immediately in the software.

Sensor network system

With the IQ Home devices, a long-distance transparent Modbus sensor network can be built. This network of ambient sensors makes it possible to access the data of every ambient sensor in the network through Modbus TCP registers. The network utilizes an IQ Home gateway to connect the devices wirelessly and to convey information in the correct format. This gateway works as a TCP slave device.

The long-life battery-powered devices are all individually accessible. Whether they are active, idle, or asleep the last measured data of each sensor is always reachable through the Modbus registers. The network utilizes an IQ Home gateway to connect the devices wirelessly and to convey information in the correct format. This gateway works as a Modbus TCP slave device.

Modbus Mesh

The IQ Home Modbus devices give an option to connect them in a mesh network. With this wireless solution, the wires in the network essentially become redundant. No matter the use case, the devices can be easily integrated in any existing Modbus RTU or RS-485 network. The devices communicate with broadcast messages. Each one of them is individually accessible. The devices support low bandwidth monitoring, which features light traffic on any network.
