The short version: how am I supposed to use the WR31 to get data off of a Modbus device and onto the cloud (for an IoT dashboard/monitoring system)?
I recently purchased a Transport WR31 with the intention of using it to remotely monitor some industrial devices in the field using Modbus. I am beginning to regret this decision, as the only documentation I can find barely covers anything except how to set up the serial port.
The one other similar issue on this forum says that the transport only acts as a gateway between Modbus TCP/RTU networks, and that python would be necessary to configure the router to read a slave. The python bit at least gave me some hope, but I have not found any material covering that use anywhere in the documentation. The supported modules in the python doc doesn’t even mention the Serial module, which I would expect to see when using a serial port.
The other question is here:
The python documentation I am looking at is here:
Has anyone else used these products to monitor remote Modbus equipment?
