Where to find Modbus connector pinout?
PLCs and related questions. topic
Posted by Tim Greif on 30 April, 2002 - 2:17 pm
I need to know where to look to find the pinout for a Modbus cable 9-pin D connector for the Modbus port on a Momentum or Quantum plc. I've searched the modicon site and got no answers. The only helpful info I found is that they recommend a Belden 8777 cable whic is a three pair cable. How many of those conductors are actually needed to successfully interface with the modbus port connector on the plc?

Thanks for the help.

The Modbus pinout is the same as RS232C. Its a standard found in many publications.

Good Luck

The pinout of the Modbus conectors, even for Momentum or Quantum, is part of the CPU manual, which is available for download at "www.modicon.com":http://www.modicon.com .

Hello Tim,

<P>Momentum Cable:
<P>Remember that the Momentum processor uses an RJ45 connector. </P>
<P>The cable pinout below is for the RJ45 to 9 Pin Female connector. The RJ45 cable between the connector and processor is a "straight through"
cable.</P>
