Moore Industries Concentrator system for Ethernet and Modbus RTU communications
The updated NET Concentrator System (NCS) provides users with increased options for communications. With the addition of the EMM Interface Module, the process control and distributed I/O network 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 system to poll other Modbus RTU slaves with the network polling functions of a typical Modbus master. The system can be used as either a single or dual Modbus master, allowing it to provide simultaneous Ethernet and dual Modbus RTU master/slave communications.
