Modbus Source Code Libraries

Modbus is an application layer messaging protocol, positioned at level 7 of the OSI model that provides client/server communication between devices connected on different types of buses or networks. Modbus is a request/reply protocol and offers services specified by function codes. Modbus function codes are elements of Modbus request/reply PDUs.

Triangle MicroWorks’ Software Libraries provide a cost-effective means of supporting industry-standard protocols in your device. Incorporating our  Software Libraries in your products will shorten development time, freeing internal resources to work on company proprietary aspects of your products.

Triangle MicroWorks Software Libraries are available in two formats: .NET Protocol Components for incorporation in Windows .NET-based products, and ANSI-Standard C Source Code Libraries for all other platforms.

For 25 years, Triangle has provided the diagnostic tools and protocol expertise to  our customers to support all their conformance  & certification needs. We will work with you to ensure that your implementation of our source code libraries will pass all industry related certification and conformance testing.

What's New

Current Release: v3.24
Release Date:  Feb 2019

Newest Features in this Release

  • Made improvements to target layer timer examples.
  • Implemented event driven receive data in winiotarg so channels don’t have to be polled. This is also available in liniotarg.
  • Updated the Linux target layer, replaced LINIOCNFG_EVENT_DRIVEN conditional with polledMode configuration.
  • Support for epoll has been added to the Linux target layer. This support is controlled by the preprocessor conditional LINIOTARG_SUPPORT_EPOLL. If this is not defined, select is used. The select option has been left in place so we continue to have an example that can be ported to OS’s that do not support epoll.
  • Include files to allow SCL customers to generate Windows project files for different versions of Visual Studio.
  • Support for 64-bit versions of the .NET Protocol Components has been added.
  • Added configuration for the generation of diagnostic messages per sector, session, and channel to allow maximum flexibility. Maximum performance can be achieved by configuring each mask to zero so no diagnostic messages are generated, thus no messages would be forwarded to the .NET code. This also would allow a user to enable diagnostic messages on a single sector, session, etc. in a large configuration on a problem connection and avoid having to filter out diagnostic messages from all other connections.
  • Updated database wrapper header files and removed the /clr flag from the modbusManaged and utilsManaged projects.
  • Added support for TLS v1.2. Affects WinIOTarg and those applications that use it.
  • Include support for 64 bit builds in project and solution files for Visual Studio.
