Modbus Address

This Address field in the App is in the Modbus Protocol format and the most commonly PLC 6-digit address scheme.  This address scheme provides the full 16 bit protocol address range ( 0 to 65535 registers) as defined in the Modbus Specification .  The 6 digit scheme combines the function code with full address rage as single long integer value.  The 6-digit address scheme uses “1-based” or offset compare to “0-based” Modbus frame that is sent over the wire.  For example, the table below shows PLC “6-digit” address and the Modbus Monitor App decodes function code and 5 digit Modbus register address (MMA = Modbus Monitor Advanced).
