Modbus is a communication protocol developed by Modicon systems. In simple terms, it is a method used for transmitting information over serial lines between electronic devices.
Using an interface to a the onboard RS485 Modbus RTU Master allowing integration to collect data in real-time from Modbus enabled machines or devices. This enables businesses utlising machines or processes that have a modbus interface to send data in realtime to a central server or reporting platform.
Net4 provide a mobile connected service allowing devices to be attached directly to a Modbus interface and providing an onboard edge processing module allowing the interface and data exchange to be controlled.
