Does an SC1000 Display Module with Modbus TCP/IP require the RS485 card in the SC1000 Probe Module?
SC1000 Modbus communication
The SC1000 controller is available with the following communications options:
- Modbus TCP/IP
- GSM/GPRS modem
- Modbus RS485
- Profibus DP
Each of these options can be used as a stand-alone communication solution, or have the possibility of being used in tandem if there is a need to do so.
- The SC1000 Display Module can be ordered with Modbus TCP/IP and GSM/GPRS modem or either option on it's own.
- The SC1000 Probe Modules can accommodate one Modbus RS485 card or a Profibus DP card. It would be unusual, but possible to have multiple Probe Modules networked together using the SC1000 Internal Bus connectors while each Probe Module has it's own communication card installed directing information to different networks.
