Delta Tau does not have a ModBus package for PPmac yet. But we do have a customer who has taken an open source ModBus project from the internet and compiled it for PPmac and is successfully using it. We do not have the details of which package they used so I mention this only so you know there is the option of you doing something yourself.


We do have EtherCat working on PPmac so if you were thinking of ModBus IO you could consider EtherCat IO if the extra price is in your budget.

Downloads of the current version of the FreeModbus base project (as well as a donations button) can be found at:
