CORAL SENSE's solution, the PoE-enabled Modbus TCP with Bluetooth Mesh Profile bridge, links Modbus TCP devices and Bluetooth Mesh Profile devices. This innovation facilitates smooth communication between Modbus TCP and Bluetooth Mesh, effortlessly integrating wireless devices into Modbus TCP networks. Utilizing Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology simplifies setup and installation, especially beneficial in industrial contexts requiring wireless device incorporation into existing Modbus TCP networks.
PoE efficiently transmits both data and power through a single network cable, streamlining installation and cost by removing the need for separate power cables. This makes PoE-enabled Modbus TCP with Bluetooth Mesh bridges a budget-friendly solution for industrial networking needs.
Modbus TCP, a widely-used communication protocol, originated in 1979 for PLC communication. It has since evolved into Modbus TCP, utilizing TCP/IP to enable Ethernet-based device communication. This open and robust protocol is favored in various industries due to its simplicity and adaptability, supporting Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and cellular networks. It finds applications in industrial automation, building automation, energy management, and more. Numerous systems, including HMIs and SCADA systems, are compatible with Modbus TCP communication interfaces and its functionalities.
