Serial communication problems text/plain English 10.22.2007 01

Tech Note 1.00 b txt

Description:

If you are having problems communicating with a Morningstar product using a serial connection, try the following:

1. Make sure that the unit is powered with a battery or power supply. The unit cannot communicate without power.

2. Verify that the serial cable is not a Null Modem or cross-over cable.

3. Verify that no other programs or managers are using the same serial port.

4. Check the serial cable for continuity using a multimeter. The cable should have continuity from Pin1<->Pin1, Pin2<->Pin2,… If possible, try another cable.

5. Shut down and restart the PC. Reattempt connection.

6. Try another PC

For products that require the PC MeterBus Serial Adapter (Model: MSC), check the RJ-11 telephone cable. If possible, try another cable. It has been reported that some USB to Serial cables will not work with the MSC because the RS-232 output signal voltages are below the RS-232 electrical specification.

What is the Modbus protocol? text/plain English 12.13.2007 01
Read More
Tech Note 1.00 b txt

Description:

Direct from the FAQ at http://www.modbus.org :

MODBUS® Protocol is a messaging structure developed by Modicon in 1979, used to establish master-slave/client-server communication between intelligent devices. It is a de facto standard, truly open and the most widely used network protocol in the industrial manufacturing environment. It is literally implemented by hundreds of vendors on thousands of different devices in order to transfer discrete/analog I/O and register data between control devices. It’s really a lingua franca or common denominator between different manufacturers. One report called it the “de facto standard in multi-vendor integration”.
