Modbus communicator.

Matrikon recently released the Matrikon Industrial UA Modbus Gateway. Housed in a small form factor gateway that provides secure, powerful and broad connectivity to access data from RTU’s, PLCs or any other devices that use the Modbus data protocol. 

As a native Modbus communicator, the UA Modbus Gateway can connect to any device that uses the standard Modbus protocol both over Serial or Ethernet connections on one side and makes it securely available to OPC UA clients on the other via OPC UA over Ethernet. Unlike Modbus, OPC UA, the next generation of OPC - the de facto standard for open standards based data connectivity, offers all the features Modbus lacks such as: security, reliability, and data modeling. The UA Modbus Gateway allows data sharing via UA as natural next step up from using Modbus. 

Matrikon Industrial UA Modbus Gateway is well suited for challenging situations that include:

  • limited power availability in remote conditions
  • remote or unmanned stations that need data collection
  • limited space requiring a compact solutions
  • operation in extreme temperatures and/or dusty environments
