gpio.ipcore - autonomous ModbusTCP gateway
This energy-efficient and powerful embedded device is the gateway to IP-based networks. A native Modbus TCP/IP server manages all communication with a connected Modbus RS485 net. This is meant by the term distributed IO.
Being able to act as stand-alone control unit, it adds flexibility and diversity to gpio.net. With the possibility to run own applications, individual requirements can be met.
A web server for configuration is further enhanced with a REST conform web service, allowing to browse the registers of all connected devices. Thanks to the standard interface data access, maintenance and configuration becomes possible with any web-enabled device such as smart phones, tablet PCs or notebooks. With a pre-installed database server data storage can be done local and only accessed, when needed or possible.
Pre-installed - besides Python and Lua - comes node.js. For development of web-based applications and autonomous control scripts, all required resources are at your disposal.
