networks and the device performance.
5.2.1 Device status
The Overview page shows the principal device status as shown in the following picture:
Illustration 5.2: Overview page
The value shown in the Device row represents the device status register which keeps track of run-time faults.
All run-time faults are latched and must be reset by the user. The following faults can be listed here:
OK
The device is fault free.
Watchdog reset
This warning indicates that the device was reset by it’s internal watchdog supervision circuit.
Brown out reset
This warning indicates that the device was reset by it’s internal supply voltage monitoring circuit. This fault
occurs when the supply voltage drops below the lower limit.
Device out of memory
This warning indicates that the internal dynamic memory has been exhausted and due to this a certain
function could not be completed.
Device configuration data write failure
This alarm indicates that the configuration data could not be written to the non-volatile memory.
Configuration data changes will be lost once the device is power-cycled or reset.
16
UMSLMODGW-1006
Reset to factory defaults
This alarm indicates that the device' configuration data was reset to factory defaults. The device requires
re-commissioning.
5.2.2 Modbus connection status
The Modbus Status page shows status and statistics about the Modbus traffic. These values provide
valuable information used to troubleshoot Modbus network problems. This page is automatically updated every
5 seconds.
Illustration 5.3: Modbus status page
Note
This page shows accumulated readings since the SL-MOD-GW was last activated or reset.
If power to the SL-MOD-GW is lost, all cumulative values are reset to zero.
The following statistics are maintained:
TCP status
Status of the TCP/IP connection as per TCP finite state machine (refer to RFC 793). If no client is connected
the status indicates LISTEN. If a client is connected, it’s IP address is shown.
Accumulative connections
A counter that increments each time a client opens a Modbus/TCP connection.
Requests
A counter that increments each time an inbound request message is successfully received.
Replies
A counter that is incremented each time a reply message is sent back to the master. This includes exception
replies.
UMSLMODGW-1006
17
CRC errors
A counter that increments each time a message is received that has a CRC that does not match what is
calculated. Typically the result of wiring issues. Messages with CRC errors are discarded and not replied to.
Invalid frames
A counter that increments each time a malformed Modbus frame is detected. Malformed frames are for
example messages larger than the allowed maximum PDU size defined in the Modbus standards. This
can be caused by non-Modbus traffic on the network.
Rx time-outs (Modbus serial line)
A counter that increments each time an inter-character time-out occurred during the reception of an inbound
message.
Rx time-outs (Modbus/TCP)
A counter that increments if the master connection has timed out. Subsequently the connection is
terminated by the SL-MOD-GW. A time-out occurs if no Modbus request is received from a connected
client within a 10 second period.
Tx time-outs
Number time-outs occurred when attempting to send a reply message.
The cumulative diagnostic data is reset when the device is power cycled or reset. The data is also reset by
pressing the Clear Counter button.

5.3.2 Configuring serial line Modbus
The Modbus settings for serial line can be configured to match the network configuration of your Modbus master
device. Select the Configuration→Modbus sub-menu from the menu bar to open the Modbus settings which
are shown below:
Illustration 5.7: Modbus settings page
The following Modbus settings can be entered:
Physical layer
Can be set to two-wire RS-485, RS-422 or RS-232 mode. RS-485 is the default. Depending on this setting
either the D-sub (RS-232) connector or the terminal block connector (RS-485/422) of the SL-MOD-GW is
utilized. The (RS-485 + RS-422) mode is a special mode which allows operating one RS-422 device
and a RS-485 bus one the same serial interface.
Transmission mode
Only RTU mode can be selected here.
Baud rate
9600 and 19200 are the most common baud rates for Modbus. 19200 is the default setting.
20
UMSLMODGW-1006
Data bits
Only 8 data bits can be selected here which is a requirement for RTU.
Stop bits
Can be configured to be 1 or 2. The Modbus standard mandates that 2 stop bits are configured when
using no parity.
Parity
Changes parity mode to either none, even or odd. The default parity mode for Modbus is even parity.
Slave ID for RS-422 node
This setting is only valid for the combined RS-485 + RS-422 mode which allows operating one RS-422
device and a RS-485 bus one the same serial interface. This setting determines based on the slave ID
whether a Modbus message is transmitted onto the RS-485 bus or the RS-422 interface. Configure here
the slave ID of the RS-422 device.
Once you click Save the new settings are stored and applied instantly. A confirmation message is shown.
5.3.3 Remote restarting the device
You can perform a remote restart of the device from the web interface. A remote restart is similar to power
cycling the device. Possibly connected clients are disconnected and communication is interrupted until the
device has rebooted.
To perform a remote restart, click on the Configuration sub-menu and then click on the Restart menu
entry. This will open the device restart page as shown below:
Illustration 5.8: Restart device page
Click on the Restart button to perform a restart of the device. The restart is confirmed with the following
notification:
Illustration 5.9: Restart confirmation page
Please allow a few seconds before continuing working with the device as it has to fully start-up first, before
being able to respond to further web browser requests.
Note
After a remote restart a Watchdog reset alarm is shown on the device' home page. This is a
side-effect of the remote restart procedure and the alarm shall be ignored and cleared.
