  • DIN-rail mounting and screw terminal power connections
  • Highly flexible and unique Modbus functionality
  • Multiple Modbus master and slave types
  • Raw/ASCII Serial and Ethernet device support
  • Variable power input eliminates need for power converters
  • Dual Ethernet ports for daisy chaining network connections between multiple units
  • RoHS 2 compliant under CE

Comtrol has developed three unique Modbus firmware applications that provide a wide range of Modbus connectivity. Simple connections or complex Modbus networks, you can do it all with a DeviceMaster UP. The DeviceMaster UP is loaded with Modbus Router firmware but you can load either Modbus TCP or Modbus Server, depending on your requirements.
