Standard Configurations

To get you started, we have defined several "standard" TPS-based Modbus Gateway configurations. These configurations are only "standard" in the sense that they represent, in our view, typical configurations that you, our customer, would expect to be available. You can find the up-to-date list of available configurations here: http://tibbo.com/store/tps/standard.html (look under "TPS-based 4-port Modbus Gateways"). You can place an immediate order for any of these devices, and they will arrive with the Modbus Gateway app already loaded.

All standard Gateways come equipped with four serial ports. Depending on the model, the serial ports can be of the RS232, RS485, or "universal" RS232/422/485 type. All Gateways can optionally be equipped with Wi-Fi ports ("G" option). TPS2(G2) gateways can optionally be ordered with the 320x240 color TFT display ("D" option). The display conveniently shows the Gateway's status information.
