Increased Flexibility for Ethernet, Modbus RTU Communications

Dec. 16, 2011
The updated NET Concentrator System (NCS) provides users with increased options for communications.

The NCS provides a real-time signal gateway between the field or factory floor and control strategies. With 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 RTU ports can be configured as Modbus master ports, allowing the NCS to poll other Modbus RTU slaves. The company has also streamlined the configuration process. Users can now view, select and set operating parameters for both Ethernet and the dual Modbus parameters through the Internet Explorer Web browser, or the free Intelligent PC Configuration software.
