Stride MQTT Gateway Click PLC Modbus RTU TCP

MQTT protocol is used for machine to machine (M2M), internet of things (IoT) communication. This publish/subscribe messaging is used where limited device resources are available or network bandwidth is low. The MQTT protocol provides small size, low power usage, minimized data packets, and efficient distribution of information to one or many receivers.

The Stride MQTT Gateway is an industrial 4.0 hardware component (IIoT – Industrial Internet of Things) that provides isolation and can easily interface with existing Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP communication protocols.
Stride MQTT Gateway Click PLC Modbus RTU TCP
We will be connecting a Stride MQTT Gateway to a Click PLC (Ethernet) via Modbus TCP. Previously we connected the Solo process temperature controller with Modbus RTU(RS485). We will leave this connection in place and add the Click PLC. The MQTT Gateway will communicate with HiveMQ Broker. MQTTBox Client will then read and write to the Click PLC and Solo process temperature controller. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

Modbus RTU BRX Do-More Master to Click Slave PLC

Recently I was asked to demonstrate communication between a BRX PLC and Click PLC using Modbus RTU. Both PLCs are available from automation direct com. Modbus serial communication (Modbus RTU) is a standard protocol used in many automation devices. It works on a Master / Slave configuration. You can have only one master per network on Modbus RTU (Remote Terminal Unit). A maximum of 32 devices (Nodes) on the network can communicate to the master. A review of the Modbus RTU protocol (RTU frames) can be seen at the following URL.

Using the BRX PLC as a Master, we will be communicating to the Click PLC (Slave). Our example will read 10 registers from the Click PLC and write 10 registers from the BRX PLC. Let’s get started! Continue Reading!

Modbus RTU Click PLC Master to BRX Do-More Slave
