Modbus Communication Protocol Suite

Group of individuals and firms supporting and helping the implementation of Modbus communication protocol suite and the evolution to address architectures for distributed automation systems.

Modbus Communication Protocol Suite
 
Some Activities of the Modbus Organization are ...to Encourage, support and evolve ...
  • Participation in standards activities worldwide.
  • Leading the evolution of the Modbus protocol and its variants.
  • Modbus across a broad spectrum of physical layers and transmission media.
  • Conformance testing program to insure greater interoperability of Modbus devices.
Some Facts -

Modbus Protocol is a messaging structure developed by Modicon (Schneider Electric) in 1979. It is used to establish master-slave/client-server communication between intelligent devices. It is a de facto standard, truly open and the most widely used network protocol in the industrial manufacturing environment.

The semiconductor industry has implemented a Network Communication Standard and an Object Messaging Protocol using Modbus TCP/IP. This allows SEMI Sensor Bus compatible sensors to communicate with each other using Modbus TCP/IP.

Modbus mMint

The mMINT (Modbus Master INCOM Network Translator) Module is an Eaton accessory product that will provide communication between a Modbus RTU network and an INCOM network.

The mMINT module is a slave device on the Modbus network and as such requires a master that will exchange register objects with the mMINT module. 32 products can be connected to INCOM network port (246 unique addresses maximum).
