We have a customer that needs to use the Anybus Communicator to get data from a device that only supports Modbus ASCII. I found reference to Modbus ASCII in the User Manual. (HMSI-27-316, Rev 1.00, page 80)
However, I have not found any specific documentation on how to set up Modbus ASCII Commands or Transactions in the Anybus Configuration Manager. Should the Commands be set up the same as Modbus-RTU? The Checksum has an option to be configured for ASCII, but I don’t see a means to do it for other parts of the command. Please let me know if there are any reference materials to help me understand this.
