An Efficient and Compact Industrial Gateway for Modbus Serial to Ethernet Protocols
A gateway is device that connects two networks. The protocol of the networks may be same or different. The different type of gateways with different protocols are available. In this paper, it proposes a design of the energyefficient, compact and reliable gateway, which can be used in industry. It connects two devices with different protocols, where one protocol is Modbus RTU and other is Ethernet based protocol like PROFINET & Modbus TCP. It provides the facility to customers for selecting instrument from any vendor/manufacturer without any restriction related to data communication. This will help to reduce the overall cost. The data from the all devices can be collected at one platform to monitor, store and analyse it later.
