Modbus Protocol Tester features, usage and benefits are summarized below.
||Advantage / Benefit
|Test complex configurations
||Several instances of Modbus Protocol Tester can run simultaneously
||Fast test cycles. One-pass comprehensive test of complete environment
|Modbus Test Automation
||Modbus test automation allows user to send group of Modbus commands to
the slave and logs the data into a text file
||MB_Automation routines provide both read and write access to one or
more modbus slave devices through the script generated using XML file
|Isolation and diagnosis of network problems
||Ability to profile and manage individual devices
||Fast regression testing.
|Long duration testing
||Reconnects automatically after communication interrupt
||No need to repeat tests due to communication interrupt
|Metrics capture for understanding communication delays
