Modbus Interface Module (MODIM) offers an easy-to-use gateway between Modbus PLCs and the Solartron Metrology’s Orbit3 Digital Measurement System.
The Orbit3 system is a flexible, accurate measuring system that can interface with any sensor with an analogue output as well as Solartron Metrology linear measurement sensors. The system can be used for temperature, pressure, force, rotary measurement and linear displacement, providing all of these process variables to a PLC through one simple MODBUS communications interface.
The MODIM allows users to access complex sensor networks with varying interfaces through a set of MODBUS parameters using a single device. End users can connect to all Solartron gauging, displacement and non-contact sensors, as well as third-party sensors, enabling users to build a complete sensor network for any application.
