Modbus Communication Protocol Suite
Some Activities of the Modbus Organization are ...to Encourage, support and evolve ...
- Participation in standards activities worldwide.
- Leading the evolution of the Modbus protocol and its variants.
- Modbus across a broad spectrum of physical layers and transmission media.
- Conformance testing program to insure greater interoperability of Modbus devices.
Modbus Protocol is a messaging structure developed by Modicon (Schneider Electric) in 1979. It is used to establish master-slave/client-server communication between intelligent devices. It is a de facto standard, truly open and the most widely used network protocol in the industrial manufacturing environment.
The semiconductor industry has implemented a Network Communication Standard and an Object Messaging Protocol using Modbus TCP/IP. This allows SEMI Sensor Bus compatible sensors to communicate with each other using Modbus TCP/IP.
Spinwave Systems’ Wireless Thermostat Controller is a drop-in replacement for almost any existing conventional non-communicating thermostat, re-using the existing equipment wiring. Thermostat functions and values are accessible remotely through an embedded web page of the Modbus Mesh Gateway or via Modbus communication.
Wireless Thermostat Controller, SWC-TSTAT-1
The wireless thermostat controller is a full function wireless mesh device with integrated radio that can be configured to control heat pump systems, (with auxiliary or emergency heating if necessary), gas/oil heating systems with add on cooling, control high and low balance points as well as the number of heating and cooling stages needing precise control. It can even adapt to manage the number of fan speeds it must control.

FireFly WSN Platform
FireFly Power Monitoring and Control Board - In this project, we design and implement a remote switch control and power measurement system by using CMU Firefly wireless sensor board. The basic function for the system is that one central node can remotely switch on or off electronic devices and get the information, e.g. power, back from the switches. The basic design includes three parts: switch module, power measurement module and CMU Firefly board.
The demonstration shows that central node can wirelessly control the four lamps individually and the accurate power from each of the node is transmitted back instantaneously. The functions such as power-save and autoswitch pattern are also implemented. The power measurement ranges from 10W to 1000W, which is suitable for most industrial electrical system.
