SIMSCAD software is used to read and record data from devices equipped with the MODBUS-RTU interface. The program functions as a MODBUS-MASTER device and communicates with SLAVE devices using the USB-RS485 converter.
SIMSCAD in the standard version enables reading up to 32 registers that store INT, DINT, WORD, DWORD or REAL values. For each log being read, it is possible to set individual communication parameters such as device slave address, device register number, timeout, type of read variable.
The read values are displayed in the program window. They can also be registered to a file and visualized in a graph.
