FUSION/Compact FUSION: Modbus TCP
Modbus TCP combines the features of Modbus protocol with the low-cost, familiar framework of an Ethernet network. Because Ethernet is so ubiquitous on a wide range of technologies, the system is easy to use and inexpensive to install. It also simplifiies cabling and makes communication with your digital controller more efficient.
Modbus TCP + FUSION
The FUSION Control Panel software is provided free with all of our digital controllers. This program works well with Modbus TCP interfaces, allowing you to easily enter parameters and troubleshoot the controller using a straightforward visual interface.
