Product Overview
Modbus is an industry adopted communication protocol that is based on RTU, ASCII, and TCP protocols for various of applications; these three protocols are commonly used by a lot of equipments in the industry, such as DCS, PLC, HMI, power meters, various sensors and measuring instruments. MB5001C series supports the standard Modbus protocol and is capable of converting the Modbus protocols between Modbus TCP (Master) to Modbus RTU/ASCII (Slave). It’s a simple and cost effective Modbus Gateway.

Diverse Hardware Infrastructure
MB5001C series which supports the three most commonly used serial communication interfaces, RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485. It also provides a web-based configuration UI, so the users can select the serial interface easily.
