Product Overview

The Modbus Serial device driver provides data exchange between OPC clients and Modbus Serial protocol compliant PLCs and other devices. Kepware automatically optimizes your data acquisition based on client demand. Data integrity is ensured with our extensive error handling.

Special handling has been added to support the native memory formats of the OMNI Flow Computer including string support. Additional configuration parameters allow this driver to tailored to a wide range of Modbus Serial compatible devices, including JBUS.

The Modbus Serial driver now offers direct integration with Modicon Concept and ProWORX programming packages.
