Modbus
« on: June 19, 2006, 04:51:32 AM »
Hello,
To the development team: is there a possibility that in the future, Modbus/TCP will be implemented in MACH ?
Or is this not possible since a lot of functions in XP need to be shut down?
Greetz,
Kris.

TCP is on the list :) We are working on getting the Grex, USB, and a galil motion controlers up and running first :) .

Hello, 8)
Great! thanks.
I will be using WAGO-modules (german manufacturer). They have quite a nice range of fieldbus controllers where inputs, outputs, counters, pwm's etcetera can be  added modularly. and fair priced.
The fact that modbus/tcp will be supported is very interessting because i will then be able to only replace the serial controller with the tcp version (some reprogramming etc. offcourse). The serial modbus device i have now i will be using for another machine where serial modbus is the only solution. So that last machine will have t wait a bit for its expansion  :)

Is there any time frame you can tell me (not gonna nail you down on it) when this would be implemented? 6 months? a year ? more  :-\
thanks in advance and keep up the very good work you are doing.

I would think about a year or so... it could be less and I don't think it would be more.

What kind of Galil DMC do you plan to use? PCI, RS232, USB or 10/100Base-T Ethernet. Or all? Or only I/O controller (IOC-7007 )?
It's a very  good news.
Will be #1 in testing ;-)

I am thinking about the 10/100Base-T Ethernet and the PCI :)

Brian, 

For Mach, will there be a difference between the pci and the ethernet Galil controllers?   I believe in general the difference is that the pci has faster communication and can handle interrupts faster. 

Thanks,

Bill
