Modbus/TCP: For Modbus communication via Ethernet, the IP address or host name of a device must be specified. Each Modbus TCP participant corresponds to a Modbus connection in the AnyViz Cloud Adapter. The “Unit-ID” can be used to address either the registers of the TCP subscriber or the registers of the subordinate subscribers.
Modbus/RTU: For a Modbus RTU connection, the serial interface must first be selected and parameterized (e.g. baud rate, stop bit, parity). The respective slave device can then be addressed via the unit ID (also called slave ID).
Multiple connections can be created with the Cloud Adapter. Any number of data points can be created for each connection and exchanged with the cloud.
