Viewing Device Level Information for Modbus Devices on the Commission Mobile Application

When Modbus is configured on a BACnet/IP controller, you can log into the Commission mobile application to view Modbus device level information.


Device level support is not available in the Commission mobile application unless you first configure the BACnet/IP controller to include Modbus. You can do so either directly from WorkStation or from an application image which has been downloaded to the controller.

In the MP and RP controller, you create a Modbus device in order to connect one or more Modbus RTU slave devices to the Connected Room Solution. RTU or Remote Terminal Unit is the method of message transmission over a Modbus serial network.

RTU is a binary format that requires the least number of characters for data transmission and is the fastest available transmission mode. Be sure to configure all devices on the same network to use the same transmission mode.

The device you create is a representation of any physical Modbus device in a serial network. All devices use the same device icon and are created in the same way, regardless of network type.
