Modbus Protocol Modbus is a communication protocol developed by MODICONInc. In 1979.

Its a standard, truly opened and the most widely used network communication protocol in industrial automation field. SCADA and HMI software can easily integrate serial device together via Modbus protocol.

Figure 1. Show the OSI Layer of Modbus Modbus is one of the world's most popular automation protocols supporting traditional RS232/422/485 devices and newly developed industrial ethernet devices. Many industrial devices, such as PLCs, DCSs, HMIs, instruments, and meters, use Modbus as their communication standard. However, the Modbus protocol running over serial and Ethernet are so different that a communication gateway is needed as a bridge for integration. A standard Modbus network only contains master and slave. On Modbus Plus network controllers can operate as token ring (master flighting master)

Figure 2. Show the network Controllers can be setup to communicate on standard Modbus networks using either of two transmission modes: ASCII or RTU. Users select the desired mode, along with the serial port communication parameters (baud rate, parity mode, etc), during configuration of each controller. The mode and serial parameters must be the same for all devices on a Modbus network.

ASCII Mode When controllers are setup to communicate on a Modbus network using ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) mode, Bit value in a message is sent as ASCII characters which represent the hexadecimal of the transmitted bit value. The main advantage of this mode is that it allows time intervals of up to one second to occur between characters without causing an error.

Figure 3. Show the ASCII Framing Example : The transmitted bit stream is to be : 0110 1111 0001 0011 1100 1100 1011 0000 Transmitted as the ASCII is : 6 F 1 3 C C B 0 RTU Mode When controllers are setup to communicate on a Modbus network using RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) mode. Bit value in a message is sent as RTU characters which represent the 8-bit binary of the transmitted bit value. The main advantage of this mode is that its greater character density allows better data throughput than ASCII for the same baud rate. Each message must be transmitted in a continuous stream.

Figure 4. Show the RTU Framing Example : The transmitted bit stream is to be : 0110 1111 0001 0011 1100 1100 1011 0000 Transmitted as the ASCII is : 01101111 00010011 11001100 10110000 In summary, the mathods are: ASCII RTU Coding hexadecimal 8-bit binary Start bit 1 1 No of bits/character 7 7 Parity Optional Optoinal Stop bits 1 or 2 1 or 2 Error checking LRC CRC

Modbus Plus (Modbus+) Modbus Plus is a local area network system for industrial control applications. Networked devices can exchange messages for the controland monitoring of processes at remote locations in the industrial plant. Modicon products supporting Modbus Plus communication include programmable controllers and network adapters. The network is also supported by a variety of products from other manufacturers. Each Modicon controller can connect to Modbus Plus directly from aport on its front panel. Additional networks can be accessed through Network Option Modules (NOMs) installed in the common backplane. The network also provides an efficient means for servicing input/output subsystems. Modicon Modbus Plus Distributed I/O (DIO) Drop Adapters and Terminal Block I/O (TIO) modules can be placed at remote I/O sites to allow the application to control field devices over the network link.

Figure 5. Show the OSI Layer of Modbus Plus Messages appearing on the network contain three levels of protocol to handle the processes of synchronization, routing, transferring data, and checking for errors. The message format satisfies the network HDLC, MAC, and LLC level protocols. HDLC Fields

Figure 6. Show the Modbus Plus Framing (HDLC Level)

At the HDLC level, the network protocol defines the beginning and end of the message frame, and appends a frame check sequence for error checking. The message contains the following HDLC level fields: MAC Fields

Figure 7. Show the Modbus Plus Framing (MAC Level) At the Medium Access Control (MAC) level, the network protocol defines the message destination and source nodes, and controls the passing of tokens. LLC Fields

Figure 8. Show the Modbus Plus Framing (LLC Level) At the Logical Link Control (LLC) level, the message contains the data field to be transferred, such as the Modbus command. It also contains additional routing and message control fields.

Bridging Networks Multiple networks can be joined through Bridge Plus devices. Messages originated on one network are routed through one or more bridges to a destination on another network. Bridges are applicable to networks in which fully deterministic timing of I/O processes is not a requirement. In a network requiring deterministic I/O timing, messages for DIO/TIO nodes are passed on that network only, and do not pass through bridges. Modbus and custom RS232/RS485 serial devices can access Modbus Plus through Bridge Multiplexers. Each Bridge Multiplexer provides four configurable serial ports. A serial device can communicate with Modbus Plus networked devices, as well as with other devices at the serial ports.

Figure 9. Show the Example for Modbus Plus network and Bridge Modbus TCP Modbus TCP protocol is a variant of Modbus protocol. It was developrd in 1999 to allow Internet community access Ethernet device. Modbus TCP (Ethernet) is the common transport protocol of the internet and Modbus TCP can provide a reliable data transport mechanism between machines. Ethernet has become the standard of corporate enterprises and is becoming more common for factory networking. Using Ethernet TCP in the factory allows true integration with the corporate intranet and systems that support the factory.

Figure 10. Show the OSI Layer of Modbus TCP The only differences in these other cases are the form of any framing sequence, error check pattern, and address interpretation.

Figure 11. Show the Modbus TCP Framing The request and response are prefixed by six bytes as follows

byte 0: transaction identifier - copied by server - usually 0 byte 1: transaction identifier - copied by server - usually 0 byte 2: protocol identifier = 0 byte 3: protocol identifier = 0 byte 4: length field (upper byte) = 0 (since all messages are smaller than 256) byte 5: length field (lower byte) = number of bytes following byte 6: unit identifier (previously slave address) byte 7: MODBUS function code byte 8 on: data as needed

ModBus Communications Gateway Modbus RTUs to communicate and interoperate with Modbus/TCP based controllers. Modbus has been extended to operate over Ethernet using the IP protocol suite. This gateway converts between the Modbus TCP/IP protocol and Modbus ASCII/RTU protocols transparently.

Figure 12. Show the Communication between Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP Modbus IDA Modbus-IDA is headquartered in North Grafton, Massachusetts, USA. Modbus-IDA is an independent, member-based, non-profit organization (operating as a business league under US tax code 501 (c) 6). It is a group of independent users and suppliers of automation devices that seeks to drive the adoption of the Modbus communication protocol suite and the evolution to address architectures for distributed automation systems across multiple market segments. Modbus-IDA provides the infrastructure to obtain and share information about the protocols, their application and device certification to simplify implementation by users. Modbus-IDA and its members companies will drive the evolution of the Modbus TCP/IP protocol. Modbus Pros.
