Modbus master for testing PiFace Digital as Modbus TCP slave

This example is a Modbus TCP master for testing the PiFace Digital as Modbus slave. The Modbus TCP slave device (Raspberry Pi with the PiFace Digital expansion board) is supposed to have the IP address

Modbus TCP slave setup

In this example the Modbus slave has 8 output coils at addresses 0 to 7 and 8 input contacts at addresses 0 to 7.

The Modbus master uses the commands FC05 (write single coil) or FC15 (write multiple coils) to manipulate the outputs (coils) and FC02 (read discrete inputs) to read the inputs.

Adding signals, changing Modbus register mapping, changing IP address of the slave device

Go to Modbus TCP Master driver (MTM block) configuration and press "Configure" for Modbus configuration. Make sure to read the Modbus driver documentation (see below).
