Modbus RTU I/O Modules

Acromag’s BusWorks 900MB Series is a high-performance collection of analogue and discrete I/O modules with Modbus-RTU network communication. These units feature universal input/output ranges and an intelligent microcontroller to provide extreme flexibility and powerful monitoring and control capabilities. BusWorks modules are ideal for a wide variety of distributed I/O applications.  Including data acquisition, control, process monitoring, and test & measurement.

To ensure unsurpassed performance, these I/O modules employ the latest digital technology. State-of-the-art flash microcontrollers.  Plus optically isolated input, output, power, and network circuits to increase noise/transient immunity and prevent ground loops. Status LEDs provide diagnostic feedback and visually indicate which channels are outside their calibrated range.

Sophisticated watchdog timer functions allow the application to define the module’s fail safe output state. The watchdog timer invokes the failsafe condition.  This is when communication between the host and module exceed a duration specified by the application. For further security, a second hardware watchdog timer monitors the microcontroller for failed operations or a “lock-up” condition and automatically resets the unit.

Select from a variety of Analogue or Discrete I/O Models to meet your application requirements.

Modbus RTU Analogue I/O Modules

Analogue Input Highlights
  • Universal I/O ranges support a variety of devices
  • Differential inputs eliminate ground loops
  • Discrete outputs enable local limit alarms or host-controlled on/off switching
  • Modbus-RTU high-speed RS-485 communication

 

Control up to 4 devices with a single unit with 900MB output modules. These units provide an isolated network interface for analogue output signals.  Outputs can be used to control mechanical equipment or write to display devices, data loggers and recorders, or to transmit data to non-networked PLCs and controllers.

Analogue Output Highlights
  • Universal I/O ranges support a variety of devices
  • Discrete outputs enable local limit alarms or host-controlled on/off switching
  • Modbus-RTU high-speed RS-485 communication

 

Modbus devices communicate using a master-slave technique in which only one device (the master) can initiate transactions (called queries). The other devices (slaves) respond by supplying the requested data to the master, or by taking the action requested in the query. A slave is any peripheral device (I/O transducer, valve, network drive, or other measuring device) which processes information and sends its output to the master using Modbus. Acromag Series 900MB I/O Modules are slave devices, while a typical master device is a host computer running appropriate application software.
