Standard device communications via Modbus registers
- Industrial device communications using PLCs or HMIs
- Debugging motion sequences using virtual PLCs or HMIs
- IEC programs or standalone applications
The G-MAS provides 64K of memory registers to enable Clients from any Host to communicate with it using the standard Modbus protocol.
The Elmo Application Studio II (EASII) enables communications with the G-MAS over Modbus using a dedicated user interface, which allows a programmer to debug motion sequences even when a physical HMI / PLC device is not present. Standard Modbus client programming interfaces are available via C/C++ objects and IEC.
Communicating via a Modbus connection and using Modbus TCP advantages is easily done.
