Modbus-TCP is a communication protocol that enables communication between industrial devices over Ethernet networks. It is an extension of the Modbus protocol, which was originally developed in the 1970s for communication between programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and other devices. Modbus-TCP uses the same protocol as Modbus, but it is transmitted over Ethernet rather than serial communication.

Modbus-TCP is a widely used protocol in industrial control and automation applications because it is open and simple to implement. It supports a wide range of devices, including PLCs, sensors, and actuators. Modbus-TCP provides fast and reliable communication, with data rates of up to 100 Mbps. It also supports multiple connections and can handle up to 65,535 devices on a single network.

Magna-Power's Implementation of Modbus-TCP

Magna-Power has designed its Modbus-TCP (+MTCP) option to allow for seamless integration into a variety of automation and industrial environments. The following are some of the key features for Magna-Power's +MTCP option:

  • Support for the product's full command set as Modbus commands
  • Extensive HTML- and PDF-based documentation for all the commands and interfacing
  • Dual RJ-45 connectors with bi-color activity and error LEDs
