Live trending plot for data trend overview

Right (green) side of the user interface displays data trends graphically so that you can quickly see how data changes in real time. Zoom and pan the plot to view the data as it changes.  Set minimum and maximum axis values or let the plot automatically pan to keep the latest data visible.  Preform all of these functions in real-time as the plot updates with the latest data.

Application Notes

To access multiple Modbus RTU devices simultaneously, all the devices have to be configured to use the same baud rate, comm port, stop bits, and parity.  

Easy MODBUs Viewer uses standard Modbus Serial RTU protocol.  

Cyclical redundancy checking is used and reads 16 bit Modbus register values. Reading of 32 and 64 bit values as integers and floating point values is available.  Less common applications will use swapped register values or values requiring byte offsets, please contact us for customization.  

Rather than limiting the user to a specific configuration, a wide range of settings are allowed in this software. 

  • No set limit on the number of register channels that can be read from Modbus slave devices.  
  • Logging to CSV files at speeds of up to 250 ms.  Under certain conditions, if logging speed is faster than than the speed of serial communication, duplicate values will be logged, and the data table background (left side of screen will turn yellow.   

Hardware compatibility

Many types of serial hardware types are available and can be used such as RS232, RS485, ect. 

  • Please make sure you have the correct type of hardware for the device you are trying to read.  
  • We recommend FTDI chip based hardware for serial communication over a USB port.
  • Not all hardware is equal and we have good experience with the USB-COMi-M usb-to-serial converter from Serial Gear.  This device is reliable, configurable for most serial data types, and has LEDs for transmit and receive troubleshooting.  Other serial converters will also work.
