DeviceMaster Modbus Server Installation Overview
If you are not familiar with installing the DeviceMaster UP, you can use the following information to guide you through installation or
you can use the appropriate User Guide.
The Modbus Server firmware does not support the DeviceMaster UP 16-port.
Install the hardware.
Install the appropriate version of PortVision DX for your operating system
and 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.
If the DeviceMaster UP contains Modbus Server, you should
verify that it is the latest version
before configuring the serial characteristics.
If a new firmware version is available, upload
the firmware to the DeviceMaster UP.
Optionally, install a COM port redirector if you require COM port support. You can download and install the
Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol, Inc. serial port redirector for Windows.
Configure the DeviceMaster UP port characteristics for your environment using the embedded web pages on the DeviceMaster UP.
There are two ways that you can access the embedded web pages:
Open PortVision DX, right-click on the appropriate DeviceMaster UP unit and select
Open your web browser and enter the IP address of the DeviceMaster UP.
Connect the serial devices to the DeviceMaster UP using the DeviceMaster UP | DeviceMaster MOD Hardware Installation and Configuration Guide.
