J-BUS Protocol with 800xA
I have a typical scenario at site.
There is a Kohler Diesel Generator and they are sending data over J-BUS protocol.
Did anyone come across it ?
Is it possible to integrate with 800xa?
I have browsed through some forums and came to know that J-BUS is also similar to MODBUS and the only difference is the address to be read -1 compared to MODBUS.
Any more information on intergration would be helpful.
As per this forum link (You would have probably visited this link earlier)
J bus is similar to Modbus RTU and compatible with Modbus RTU masters.If possible, try to communicate with the generator using Modscan32 at site.If you are able to read/write data, then I believe the Modbus driver from PLCconnect connectivity package will be able to communicate with the generator as well.
