    The T6131 module, based on the Lantronix XPort, provides a physically small IoT (Internet of Things) interface for Modbus RTU and/or Modbus TCP devices that can be built into your product. The T6131 configuration is done over Ethernet through onboard web pages of the product and can therefore be managed from a remote location. The T6131 configuration is simple and the device is up and running in minutes.

    Mapping between Modbus registers and BACnet objects requires the creation of a template. An engineer who is familiar with the Modbus register map of the target Modbus devices creates a template for each device using a proprietary Windows tool, which has drop down menus for easy object name creation and engineering unit selection. An appropriate template is loaded into the T6131 during the configuration process.

    This product features:

    Flexible connections
    • TCPt/IP connectivity using 10/100 Ethernet
    • Interfaces to 2 Modbus RTU/TCP devices
    • Easy to use template builder Windows utility for mapping

    Manageability
    • Build-in web server with secure login
    • Status page for diagnostics
    • Easy & informative naming convention 

    Agility

    • Multi-vendor Modbus device support

    This module is an elongated Ethernet connector which contains a powerful microprocessor with all memory and software required to support connection to a state-of-the-art Building Automation System network. Design your circuit board so this module can fit in and connect to the serial port of your host microprocessor (TTL level RS232).

    Lost of buildings and facilities have a large number of Modbus devices which need to be brought up to an Internet of Things ThingWorx ecosystem. To address that need, Cimetrics offers a templatized protocol converters T6130. The T6130 acts as a Modbus to IoT interface - taking Modbus register data and exposing it to ThingWorx platform, just as Cimetrics’ B6130 device. It also includes sample templates from the range of known meters so there is often no need to spend time choosing what registers to expose from each device. In addition the T6130 allows the users to create their own loadable templates to map a Modbus RTU or Modbus TCP device into ThingWorx platform. T6130 includes examples of some Modbus devices templates to give first time user best practices when choosing names, units and descriptions. All BACnet objects are meaningfully named and standardized for easier reading and integration into Building Automation Systems.

    Configuration steps include using a Windows tool to create a template (the tool has drop down menus for easier name creation and choosing units),  specifying a meter's IP address (if it is a TCP/IP meter), specifying the device’s Modbus ID, and loading a template created/supplied with the tool. The configuration can be saved to a .csv file for record keeping and data analysis.
