MODES OF OPERATION

WIRELESS SEGMENTS IN ANY POINT OF A MODBUS NETWORK
In this configuration the wireless connection can occur far from the Modbus master. The RS485 port AirGate-Modbus is used to communicate with the master and the wired slaves. Additional wireless segments can be added.

WIRELESS SEGMENTS IN ANY POINT OF A MODBUS NETWORK


WIRELESS SEGMENTS CLOSE TO THE MODBUS MASTER
An AirGate-Modbus is located close to the Modbus master which communicates by USB port connects wirelessly to the rest of the network.

WIRELESS SEGMENTS CLOSE TO THE MODBUS MASTER

WIRELESS SEGMENTS CLOSE TO MULTIPLEXED MODBUS MASTERS
Multiplexing of 2 masters, one connected to the USB interface and another to the RS485. The AirGate-Modbus close to the Modbus masters. It
also allows the usage of a single master in any of the two interfaces (USB or RS485).
