Can the MLC/HMC be configured as a Modbus TCP master and a slave at the same time?
Yes, the HMC/MLC can be configured as a Modbus TCP Master on COM3 and still retain the default Modbus TCP Slave configuration.
choose one or the other between master and slave for Modbus RTU, but Modbus
TCP can be both simultaneously thanks to Ethernet. As a master (client) you can read Modbus data from, or write Modbus data to, other Modbus TCP devices.|
