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:

    • Support for WEP/WPA/WPA2 security.

    • 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:

    • TPS2(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.

    • DS1101- 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:

    • 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.

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

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

    • Slave ID shifting.

  • Support for Modbus exceptions:

    • Timeout exception;

    • Routing error exception.

  • Configuration:

  • Status indication:

  • Operation monitoring:

    • Gateway configuration can be monitored using SNMP protocol;

    • 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.
