I/O can act as single or dual MODBUS master

10 October 2011

The updated NET Concentrator System (NCS) from Moore Industries offers increased communication options.

With the addition of the new EMM Interface Module, the process control and distributed I/O network now comes standard with an Ethernet (MODBUS/TCP) port and dual, independent MODBUS RTU (RS-485) ports. One or both of the MODBUS RTU ports can be configured as MODBUS master ports, allowing the NCS to poll other MODBUS RTU slaves with the network polling functions of a typical MODBUS master.

Previously, the NCS could only act as a MODBUS slave. The update now enables it to be used as either a single or dual MODBUS master, allowing it to provide simultaneous Ethernet and dual MODBUS RTU master/slave communications.

The NCS provides a real-time signal gateway between the field or factory floor and control strategies and is designed to work in demanding industrial applications and settings.
