RS485 Modbus communication module

RS485 Modbus communication module
ORDERING CODE
EK-MC1-MD
DESCRIPTION
RS485 Modbus communication module to collect and transmit measurements data of ekinex single and three phase energy meters. Optical port for data transmission between counter and communication module. Data transmission on a RS485 line, using Modbus RTU or ASCII protocols. Change of RS485 parameters directly on the combined counter or by sending the proper Modbus protocol commands to the module. SET DEFAULT key to reset to factory default values all communication parameters. Two LEDs on the front provide information about power supply (POWER) status and communication (ACT/ERR) status. Mounting in distribution board on EN 60715 rail (1 modular unit = 18 mm).
