  Overview

The Modgate Plus (or Modgate+) are easy to use Gateways from Modbus/TCP on Ethernet or WLAN to Modbus/RTU or Modbus/ASCII on the serial ports. Modgate+ 113 connects one Modbus serial line to a network running TCP/IP. Metal case, wide temperature range and flexible DC power supply classify the Modgate+ as industrial-strength devices. They are based on a state-of-the-art RISC processor, to provide cost-effective design and low power consumption.

Using TCP/IP the Modgate+ operate without limitations on distance or OS platform, the Gateways are usable via Internet and VPN connections. The serial port is configured for Modbus/ASCII or Modbus/RTU and physically set to RS232, RS422 or RS485 operation. The messages received on the network are sent to the serial line, messages from the serial port are sent via network. Modgate+ automatically adjusts as Master or Slave on the serial port.
Modbus Master Multiplexing is implemented as an extension to the standard. Several masters connect to Modgate+ by Modbus/TCP, slaves on serial lines may answer requests from multiple masters.

The configuration of Modgate+ is done via browser. The user interface is based on Web 2.0 to provide an easy handling of the options. UPnP provides a simple and standard way to find the Gateway in the network.

Modgate+ devices can be ordered with an embedded module for WLAN 802.11b/g/n.

  Special Features

Installation

DIP switches set a defined temporary IP Address to contact via WEB Browser

Operating mode

Promiscous Mode
Messages received from the network are sent to the serial port, messages from the serial port are sent to the connected network host.
Mapped Mode
Received messages are scanned for their target address. This address is found in a table, the message is sent to the defined connection (serial or TCP).

Modbus Master Multiplexing

An extension to the standard. Slaves on serial lines may answer requests from multiple masters. The masters connect to ModGate+ by Modbus/TCP.

Configuration

Configuration over WEB Browser

Detection

Announces presence in the network via Universal Plug and Play (UPNP) protocol
