Tibbo Modbus Gateway Features

The following is a list of features offered by compatible Tibbo devices running the Modbus Gateway app :

• 100/10Mb Ethernet port .

• Optional Wi-Fi port :

o Support for WEP/WPA/WPA2 security.

o Automatic switchover to the Wi-Fi port whenever the Ethernet interface becomes inactive (the Ethernet cable is unplugged).

• Selection of static IP or IP configuration via DHCP.

Serial ports :

oTPS2(G2)- and TPS3(G2)-based Gateways :

▪ Up to four RS232, TS485, or RS232/422/485 ports;

▪ Baudrates of up to 460,800bps;

▪ None*/even/odd/mark/space parity modes;

▪ 7* or 8 bits/character;

▪ Optional RTS/CTS flow control.

oDS1101- and DS1102-based Gateways :

▪ Up to three RS232 channels;

▪ One RS485 channel (DS1102 only);

▪ Baudrates of up to 921,600bps;

▪ None/even/odd/mark/space parity modes;

▪ 7 or 8 bits/character;

▪ Optional RTS/CTS flow control.

• Support for up to 8 TCP masters and up to 4 TCP slaves.

• Flexible routing:

o Routing of Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU, and Modbus ASCII messages in any direction:

▪ Modbus TCP --> Modbus RTU or ASCII;

▪ Modbus RTU or ASCII --> Modbus TCP;

▪ Modbus TCP --> Modbus TCP;

▪ Modbus RTU or ASCII --> Modbus RTU or ASCII.

oSlave ID-based routing (works for all types of Modbus Masters);

oTCP port-based routing (for Modbus TCP Masters only); four ports are available;

oSlave ID shifting .

• Support for Modbus exceptions:

o Timeout exception;

o Routing error exception.

• Configuration:

o Via the DS Manager utility ;

o Via the web interface .

• Status indication:

oUsing LEDs ;

oOn a display (when present).

• Operation monitoring:

o Gateway configuration can be monitored using SNMP protocol ;

o Gateway activity and byte-level flow can be monitored using IO Ninja software running a specially designed plugin.

• 12V or 24V power; Optional PoE power.

* Second-generation TPS devices ("G2" devices) do not support the combination of the 7 bits/character mode and the "none" parity mode.
