ICS Electronics has announced a new multi-function Modbus RTU interface board for controlling RS-232 and
RS-485 Modbus RTU devices. Called the Model 9009, this
new interface board allows temperature chambers and
other Modbus controlled slave devices to be managed
from an Ethernet, GPIB, or USB source or test system.
The 9009's Ethernet port supports VXI- 11 and raw
socket protocol, Modbus TCP/IP conversion, and an
internal HTML web server. VXI- 11 and raw socket
commands can be used to control the 9009 or any
connected Modbus slave devices. Modbus TCP/IP packets
are directly converted into Modbus RTU packets.
The 9009's Webserver includes a control page that
XBEE WI-FI WIRE AND PCB
XBee® Wi-Fi® embedded RF modules provide simple serial to IEEE 802.11b/g/n connectivity. By bridging the low power/low cost
requirements of wireless device networking with the proven infrastructure of
802.11, XBee Wi-Fi antennas from Parallax create new wireless opportunities
for energy management, process and factory automation, wireless sensor
networks, intelligent asset management, and more.
Featuring easy provisioning methods and
native Device Cloud by Etherios™
connectivity, XBee Wi-Fi modules give
developers the fastest IP-to-device
and device-to-Cloud capability
possible. Using the 802.11
feature set, these modules are
interoperable with other 802.11
bgn devices, including devices
from other vendors.
With XBee, users can have their 802.11 bgn network up and
running in a matter of minutes.
Key features include:
• Flexible SPI and UART interfaces that provide flexible connection options.
• Supports 802.11 b, g, and n standards.
• 802.11n provides up to a 72 Mbps data rate.
• Price: $36.99.
