|iRidium for Modbus|
|Description on the web site|
iRidium for Modbus is a package of tools for creating interfaces and controlling automation system on the basis of Modbus controllers. iRidium enables connection of control panels to the controller in the Master-Slave mode where the control panel is always a Master Client. iRidium allows you to send and receive data about the state of variables on real time basis using Modbus TCP, RTU or ASCII protocols. When working with Modbus TCP it is possible to control the system via the Internet.
This manual introduces only the standard way of using iRidium for controlling Modbus controllers (without using scripts).
