ModBusProbe 1.0.0 was released on Wednesday, a Mac OS X app that can poll ModBus enabled control system devices. The application allows users to connect to a device and display the register data in the device.
ModBu Probe is based on ModBusKit, a Mac OS X framework that is being released as open source software to encourage further development of ModBus applications. The application can poll either serially via a USB adapter or via TCP, and includes the ability to poll all four types of registers and display the results in decimal, hexadecimal, binary, or integer format. The data can then be printed out for recordkeeping.
In addition to reading registers, two register types can be written to. The raw data stream to and from a device can also be viewed. ModBus Probe is available as a free download in demo mode (30 day or 5 launch trial, whichever comes later). A ModBus Probe license can be purchased for US$100 from the ModBusApps Web site.
