USR-M511 Modbus command Store and Modbus management

 Overview

This manual introduces USR-M511(Modbus Gateway)  Modbus command store function and Modbus management function.

 

1. Modbus command store

1.1. Introduction

Enable Modbus command store function can accelerate query speed of network Modbus master and this function is suitable for multi-master query mode. The application diagram as follow:

Application scenarios: Multiple masters query one salve or one master needs to query data frequently, enable this function can save serial port querying time and reduce timeout time.

 

1.2. Configuration

1.2.1. Hardware connection

 

Power M511(Modbus Gateway)  and connect M511(Modbus Gateway)  Ethernet interface to PC or to same router as PC. If user connects M511(Modbus Gateway)  Ethernet interface to same router as PC, user should configure M511’s static IP address to in same network segment as router as follow(192.168.5.1 is router gateway address in our test):

User should use setup software USR-TCP232-M4K3-setup-V2.3.3.97.exe to configure M511.

 

1.2.2. Configuration

 

Step 1: Open browser, type in M511 IP address(192.168.5.211 in our test) and log in with username and password both are admin(Default of username and password both are admin).

Step 2: Configure Modbus command store as follow(After configuration, please click ‘Save’ and restart module):

  • Store function can only works to Modbus slave
  • Store function just query and update storage for command which be configured
  • Stored command that be configured can only enable automatic query and store function after querying of network Modbus master
  • The frequency of command query is related to serial baud rate. For example, baud rate is 9600, the query frequency of RTU protocol is about 400ms and the query frequency of ASCII protocol is about 800ms
  • If query command of network master and query command that be configured have inclusion relation, response data from network will be the data from internal cache. For example, query command 1 is 01 03 00 00 00 0A C5 CD and query command 2 is 01 03 00 0A 00 14 65 C7, user can configure as follow:

 

And any one command of above two commands query slave device, it will get fast and accurate response from internal cache.

Note: Quantity must less than 126(According to Modbus protocol)

 

2. Modbus management

2.1. Introduction

 

M511 can manage Modbus slave devices which is mainly applied to monitor data of specified device. And parameters configuration on Modbus management web page will take effect immediately. Modbus management is based on Websocket. So user needs to use browser which can support Websocket as follow:

Browser

Version

Chrome

Version 4+

Firefox

Version 4+

Internet Explorer

Version 10+

Opera

Version 10+

Safari

Version 5+

 

 

2.2. Configuration

Step 1: User can refer to 1.2.1.Hardware connection and 1.2.2.Configuration Step 1 to enter M511 Web Server.

 

Step 2: Enable Modbus command store function and configure stored command as 1.2.2.Configuration Step 2.

 

Step 3: Open Modbus management web page and set the command(Command must in range of stored command in Step 2).

Step 4: Click ‘Save’ and refresh web page. Configure remark parameters for convenience of reference(Remark only be allowed to use Chinese character, letter and number). Then user can monitor data.
