What is Modbus RTU?
Modbus-RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) means that the Modbus protocol is used on top of a serial line with an RS-232, RS-485 or similar physical interface. Numerous automation systems have Modbus-RTU interfaces for communication. Modbus devices are certified by the Modbus User Organization for interoperability and conformance to the Modbus specification. Learn more about Modbus RTU
  •  How to connect to Modbus RTU

  With Anybus you have several ways of connecting to or integrating Modbus RTU

Connect any device to Modbus RTU
PROFIBUS CommunicatorAnybus Communicator is a stand-alone protocol converter enabling you to connect your device to Modbus RTU.

It doesn't matter if your device runs CAN, RS232/422/485, Modbus RTU, DF1 or any other proprietary protocol.

You configure the connection in a configuration manager software which means no programming is needed.
