The Modbus Gateway provides a communication link between networks that use the Modbus/TCP communication protocol and Fire Alarm Control Panels (FACPs) resident on an NFN network.
The NFN network communicates with the Modbus Gateway through a NOTI•FIRE•NETTM network via the network port on any NCM. The Modbus communication protocol is consistent with Modbus Application Protocol Specification V1.1b.
The Modbus Gateway Configuration Tool, a programming utility included with the Modbus Gateway assembly, is used to configure the Modbus Gateway. The Modbus Gateway is designed to need very little configuration. In most applications you will only need to enter the TCP/IP settings for your network and the nodes you would like
to monitor. The gateway will automatically map all the configured points and supply you with a user friendly value report.
Requires a Windows XP based computer to run the Modbus Configuration Tool.
