Mastering Modbus RS485 Network Communication

The Modbus protocol is the oldest and still by far the most popular automation protocol in the field of process automation and SCADA. Knowing how to create Modbus based networks that run on the RS485 serial communication standard is essential for any electrical technician and engineer working in these fields. Being able to integrate devices from different manufacturers is a skill that is in demand and will ultimately make you more valuable and marketable in the industry.

This course gives you the theory behind the Modbus Protocol as well as RS485. It then goes on to show you how they work together to create a Modbus RS485 network. Two freeware applications are then used to create a Modbus network right on your PC so you can see the communication in action. 

After completing this course, you will be able to integrate devices from the same manufacturers and different manufacturers, that are Modbus compliant, to form a complete seamless network.

real world

Thanks This course breaks down Modbus into simple pieces to understand and Emile's approach with real world applications bridges the gap between just reading and listening about this topic to actually seeing how it can be used in the real world.

Provided a solid understanding of the fundamentals and then built from there until the student was able to understand a real world implementation.

He gave a number great real world examples that you should do along with him to give you experience on how the master-slave relationship should work between devices.

Things you should understand before taking: - Decimal, binary, and hexadecimal numbering (at least a general understanding of the difference) - Real world familiarity with PLCs and PLC applications.

Accent is easy to get used too A lot of good info The course is designed around an ongoing scenario that really helps to understand everything in a real world setting I took this course to prepare for future use of MODBUS.

nice and a practical course thanks very much Mr Emile need more real world and real modbus communication with plc and servo and vfds so its more attractive .

na Need more examples of "real world" connections.
