Modbus Protocol Explained

Modbus is a protocol used for transmitting information between electronic devices over serial lines. It was initially created by Modicon for their programmable logic controllers (PLCs).

As the oldest industrial automation communication protocol, Modbus has become a standard language for connecting automation devices and equipment, allowing communication within a network or industrial setting.

Although Modbus was originally designed for Serial networks, it now supports message transmission over Ethernet and TCP/IP.

Developed and managed by the Modbus organization, it has evolved into a free open-source tool that provides an automation protocol for industrial devices. Modbus primarily operates over serial lines, supporting RS-232 and RS-485 serial communication standards, and it is also compatible with Serial RS-422 and Ethernet.

The versatility and reliability of Modbus have made it a preferred choice for many industries, including manufacturing, energy, and transportation. Its ease of implementation and robust performance in various industrial environments ensure that it remains a crucial component in the realm of industrial automation and control systems.
