DL405 CPU with Modbus
Master Module
Modbus Network using
RTU protocol
Overview
Our Modbus Master module allows you to
use a DL405 PLC as the network master
for a Modbus RTU network. The module
communicates with any network slave by
using high level Modbus commands.

Typical network slaves might include PLCs, drives, PC, etc
Easy setup
and operation
Module setup is accomplished by loading
values into special V-memory locations
inside the DL405 CPU. The data read or
written is also stored in the CPU’s
V-memory area, which makes it easily
accessible for use in control schemes. If
simplicity is your primary concern, you can
use the DL405 RX and WX instructions in
your ladder program to initiate read and
write requests. Minimal setup is required
with this option and it is especially useful
for event-triggered data exchanges. If you
have more complex data requirements,
you can use the Table Read/Write capability. By filling in a special block of the
CPU’s V-memory, you can specify a slave
address, starting data address, and
number of bytes to transfer. This option
requires more setup, but it is also more
useful if you need to constantly exchange
data with several slave stations.
