3G router modbus slave

· 1 min read

Great news!

Conel 3G/4G (LTE) routers included new feature via User Module and can operate as a modbus slave and gateway at the same time.

  • This is great in a situation, where you need some I/O on remote site as Conel router can be equipped with HW optional module XC-CNT which provides 4 DI (2 of them can be counters), 1 DO, 2 Analog input (4-20mA).
  • Another good news are that both optional ports on the router can be equipped with XC-CNT modules, which means 8 DI, 2 DO, 4 Analog Inputs with both optional HW modules + 1 DI, 1 DO on the router itself.

This provides quite nice 3G router with reasonable amount of IO so in total you get:

  • 9 Digital IN
  • 3 Digital OUT
  • 4 Analog IN

All of them addressable by Modbus protocol. Modbus register table at the moment supports to read router's temperature and supplied voltage as well with more coming later on. Software user module is needed for this functionality, see our download page or here

Of course you can use USB storage and scripting to convert unit into data logger.So, if you like mySCADA box products you can have nice monitoring and control done like below with one XC-CNT I/O module installed.
