Tech Tip

How to Activate the Modbus TCP Interface—Helpful Resources

activating Modbus in iMonnit

This month’s tech tip revolves around a handy ALTA Ethernet Gateway 4 feature that you can overlook. It’s the Modbus TCP Interface. If you want to connect the gateway to a Modbus Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) network, you must enable this interface for the gateway to communicate on that network. Then you can integrate your sensor network and direct sensor data to factory, building automation and management systems, and other applications that use Modbus TCP.

The video and Monnit Knowledgebase articles below show you how to access and enable the interface via iMonnit or the HTTP Interface on the gateway. You should know that to direct the data from the gateway via the Modbus TCP Interface; the gateway must be unlocked. Please contact your sales representative for help unlocking the gateway.
