General Mach Discussion / AD Sureservo and Mach 3 modbus
« on: April 09, 2009, 03:38:30 PM »
Has anyone had any success using Mach 3  modbus functionality to communicate with Automation Directs sureservo amps?

My initial research has gained me this understanding:

1. PC is the master(need RS232 to RS485 converter)
2. Then each sureservo drive will act as a slave.
3. I think i need a junction box to connect the drives to my serial port.
4. Enable modbus in mach 3
5. setup port and pin addresses for each drive


1. Is any part of my understanding listed above flawed?
2. Are there any potential timing problems associated with serial communication to several servo drives?

Thank You
