PLC Connect Modbus TCP driver,
I want to work with the Modbus TCP/IP driver included in PLC Connect to communicate with a different DCS. My question is, can this Modbus TCP/IP driver works as master and slave? How to configure it?
Has anyone share one example of configuration?

The PLC Connect Modbus TCP/IP driver can only work as a master.
To configure it you first create a controller object with the Modbus TCP/IP driver, where you can set the IP address, port and the Modbus ID of the slave. Search the PLC Connect help for Modbus and you will find the addressing supported. You can use C1 - C8192, I1001-I9192 & I10001-I18192, HR4001-HR13999 & HR40001-HR49999, IR3001-IR12999 & IR30001-IR39999, CA0-CA65535 & HRA0-HRA65535. Using the HRA addressing you can also read 32-bit signed integers and floating point reals.
