Modbus meets Web-IO
The W&T Web-IO provides a bridge between Modbus TCP and the most common Web technologies.
Sending alarms with Modbus:
Master writes to the register - Web-IO sends e-mail
Equipment controlled via Modbus is mostly found in closed systems. The equipment is monitored using a host computer on which special or critical operating states are displayed and signaled. More...
The new generation of Web-IO Boxes provides the Modbus master with up to 12 virtual registers (coils) depending on the model. Setting these registers does not change anything in the actual IO status of the Web-IO, but an internal alarm is generated. When alarms are present the Web-IO informs the user via e-mail, SNMP trap or syslog depending on the configuration. It is also possible to log the alarms via FTP.
In this way the Modbus master can even signal operating states across different locations.
Modbus in the browser:
The Web-IO brings process data written by the master into the browser
Modbus systems are generally monitored using host computers on which specially adapted visualization software is installed. This limits the number of workstations which allow viewing into the system. More...
The new generation of Web-IO Boxes opens the way to modern web technologies for Modbus.
The Web-IO provides 128 bytes of freely writable memory in the form of virtual registers. The Modbus master can write any desired amount of process data to these registers. Using simple HTTP requests these process data can be read out by Web applications and displayed in the browser.
Switching with Modbus TCP:
Access to digital inputs, outputs and counters
The new Web-IO generation enables reading of input/output status and counters and, depending on the model, switching of up to 12 outputs. More...
Modbus and Web:
Combining systems with Web services
With Modbus TCP the W&T Web-IO boxes now support an additional protocol from automation technology. More...
Integrating into existing systems is child’s play thanks to the standardized Modbus protocol.
