RS485 – Modbus

The device has opto-isolated RS485 interface with support of Modbus RTU. It is dedicated to energy meter, voltage meter and any Modbus device like PLC which support Modbus RTU protocol. The device supports multiple Modbus devices with separate address range. It is possible to directly send and receive any value of register from server. Please follow proper connection of A and B signals from device to A and B signals in power meter. If the polarity is reversed there will be no data transmission. All modbus configuration like baud-rate, parity, address available in internal website. 

Serial – Configuration of serial communication

In this section are RS485 parameter configuration: baud rate, data bit, parity and stop bit.

Parameter Option/range
Baudrate 2400 to 460800
Data bit 8, 9
Parity None, Even, Odd
Stop bit 1, 1.5, 2
