DeviceMaster MOD Installation Overview


Please note that the DeviceMaster MOD is another member of the DeviceMaster Industrial Gateway, which includes the DeviceMaster UP family. The links from this page link you to the DeviceMaster UP download pages.

If you are not familiar with installing the DeviceMaster MOD, you can use the following overview or refer to the appropriate User Guide.

  1. Install the hardware.

  2. Install PortVision DX so that you can easily configure the network information.


    If you have previously installed PortVision DX you may want to verify that you are running the latest version. PortVision DX is continuously updated with new features and added support for the latest hardware model releases.

  3. Verify that the latest version of firmware is loaded.


    The DeviceMaster MOD is loaded with Modbus Router by default unless ordered with Modbus Server or Modbus/TCP. Optionally, you may need to load the appropiate version of Modbus for your application.

  4. Refer to the interface programming information and if available, the sample PLC programs for your Modbus protocol.

  5. Configure the DeviceMaster MOD port characteristics for your environment using the embedded web pages on the DeviceMaster MOD.

    There are two ways that you can access the embedded web page:

    • Open your web browser and enter the IP address of the DeviceMaster MOD.
