When you buy an I-7188E2 -MTCP controller, it already has the default Modbus firmware installed in Flash memory. The default firmware has the follows features:
|Modbus SDK ( in C language )|
If the default firmware doesn't totally suit your requirement. You can use Modbus SDK to modify the default firmware to add extra functions. The Modbus SDK has below features:
We provide Modbus tools for Windows 98/SE/NT/2K/XP, it includes:
An I-7188E2 -MTCP runs a default firmware to become a single Modbus/TCP to multi-Modbus/RTU converter. You can simply use the Modbus Utility to configure the device and then set connection between SCADA , HMI software and the I-7188E2-MTCP.
An I-7188E2 -MTCP is also be able to link to serial devices that don't support Modbus/RTU. To use this function, you will need to install VxComm driver on host PCs. After installation, you will be able to access the remote COM ports via the standard serial driver.
Using the Modbus SDK, users can develop their own custom Modbus firmware, allowing extra functions, integration of serial devices and a Xboard to the Modbus/TCP kernel. Thus an I-7188E2 can become a powerful controller.
When an I-7188E2 -MTCP links same hardware devices as Advanced application 1 link to, if any devices connected to certain COM ports are not integrated into your custom firmware, you are still able to access the COM ports via the standard serial driver. In order to do this, you must install the VxComm driver on the host PCs.
