The Modbus Slave I/O interface allows connecting with Modbus slave(s) to exchange coil and register data. Using a standard network interface card, this protocol can be easily and rapidly integrated into any simulation model.
With the properuser configuration, a driver is initialized on the target simulator at the start of the simulation and instantiates multiple slaves to which masters can connect and send read/write commands. The Modbus slave interface can operate over TCP/IP using an Ethernet physical link or over RTU using a serial link.
Communications protocols can be configured in the I/O Interface Configuration tool that can be opened from HYPERSIM Ribbon Options.
