BASgatewayLXContemporary Controls - Modbus Profile Builder Software for the BASgatewayLX is Now Available

The BASgatewayLX uses a csv (comma separated value) file that is uploaded to it to provide the modbus point list that will be polled. Contemporary Controls builds these Modbus maps and posts them on our BASgatewayLX profile page.  There have been situations especially with PLC implementers where a defined map is not applicable. For example when we develop a Modbus map for a specific boiler model, those Modbus points are always the same for the identical boiler model. In PLC applications the logic developer defines what values will be assigned to which Modbus points. For every job the point mapping may be unique. We can still build the map, but many times the PLC developer will build their own since the point mapping may be a last minute decision.

FT1A Touch ControllerIDEC Releases HMI+PLC with Extensive Analog Capability
IDEC announces a new model in its FT1A Touch micro programmable controller series of combo HMI+PLC units, the FT1A Touch 14 I/O. New features make the FT1A Touch 14 I/O suitable for advanced analog monitoring and control, allowing users to economically perform both operator interface and control for a much wider range of applications.
Many small scale applications such as simple machines could benefit by using a programmable graphical interface along with a discrete and analog controller and I/O, but don’t have the panel space or the budget for separate components. The FT1A Touch 14 I/O addresses this need by combining operator interface and control in a single compact package, all programmable with IDEC’s PC-based software.
