microMNCS: MODBUS RTU Master and Distributed I/O System

microMNCS: MODBUS RTU Master and Distributed I/O SystemThe microNCS provides a real-time signal gateway between the field or factory floor and your control strategy. Part of Moore Industries’ NCS NET Concentrator System® family of intelligent distributed I/O, the stand-alone microNCS accepts four or eight fully-isolated analog inputs and four discrete (contact closure) inputs. It “concentrates” this data onto one or multiple communication links, and transmits it long distances back to one or more host DCS, PLC or PC-based control systems.

One or both of the microNCS’ MODBUS RTU (RS-485) ports can be configured as MODBUS master ports. This allows the microNCS to poll other MODBUS RTU slaves with all of the network polling functions of a typical MODBUS master. 

In addition to operating in a stand-alone mode, the microNCS integrates with any of the NET Concentrator System’s analog, temperature, discrete and relay I/O modules (see Pages 3 and 7). Using just one microNCS module with expansion I/O, up to 124 signal inputs and outputs can be transmitted long distances on one low-cost data link.

Features include:

  • - Simultaneous dual MODBUS RTU and Ethernet communications
  • - Installs in harsh environments
  • - Quick and simple programming
  • - Data logger with battery back-up
  • - Advanced control and math capabilities
