MDC-211-ZT Modbus data concentrator developed by ICP DAS, with Ethernet, ZigBee Wireless, RS-232 and RS-485 communication interfaces, can link the Modbus RTU devices to the Ethernet network. MDC-211-ZT can read the data of Modbus RTU device according to the user-defined command table, and integrate the data of different Modbus RTU devices into the format of the continuous address so that the remote monitor host can connect to MDC-211-ZT from Ethernet to access the data of multiple Modbus RTU devices at once.
Through MDC-211-ZT's Modbus data centralized management function, as well as the Ethernet network convenient link and the communication ability, it can quickly establish a stable remote monitoring system, simplify the complexity during the process of data acquisition operation, reduces the Ethernet network traffic load, and enhances the system efficiency.
The MDC-211-ZT Modbus data concentrator not only helps users to manage the on-site RS-232 or RS-485 Modbus RTU devices, it also can works in remote distance where the wiring is difficult to deploy, with the ZigBee wireless mesh network communication ability, it is easy to link the remote distributed ZT-2000 I/O series modules to the general Modbus RTU devices.
MDC-211-ZT Modbus data concentrator is perfect to work with the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system which is widely used in all kinds of industries. With a few simple settings, MDC-211-ZT Modbus data concentrator can link the distributed Modbus RTU devices and the ZigBee I/O modules to the Ethernet network, which is the best solution for the user to establish a remote monitoring control system quickly.
Support Web-based UI Operations:
MDC-211-ZT provides a simple, friendly Web interface (UI), users can login the MDC-211-ZT Web page via a Web Browser to set up and real-time detect the MDC-211-ZT for the communication status and update frequency of each Modbus RTU command.
Support System Setup and Backup via CSV File:
CSV (Comma-Separated Values) is a text file format that can be edited in spreadsheet software or plain text files and has the advantage of being easy to use, read and maintain. MDC-211-ZT parameter setting includes the Modbus TCP communication ID and port number, the Serial port communication parameters and the Modbus RTU commands that settings can also be edited in a *.csv file and import into the MDC-211-ZT from the Web UI, and then start to monitor the data of the remote Modbus RTU devices.
Support ZigBee Communication Protocol:
ZT series module of ICP DAS includes a variety of ZigBee to Modbus Digital/Analog I/O modules, and also provides many ZigBee to RS-232/RS-485/Ethernet converter that can upgrade the normal Modbus devices to ZigBee wireless devices. The advantages of ICP DAS's ZT series products are its ZigBee low cost, low power consumption features, FCC ID certification, and wireless communication capabilities up to 700 meters (Line of Sign, LOS) standard transmission distance, plus the dynamics mesh network that allows users to easily monitor Modbus device information in environments where cabling is not easy.
