MODBUS is a common means of gathering data from many different sources for viewing operations, archiving and troubleshooting from a central remote location.
Modbus protocol establishes the format for the master's query by placing into it the device (or broadcast) address, a function code defining the requested action, any data to be sent, and an error-checking field.
The only cable required to test MODBUS is a three conductor, wired to one end with a standard 9 pin connector for the computer com port and the other end loose to tie into the customer interface terminalsThe 9 pin terminal 2 is Rx, terminal 3 is Tx, and 5 is GND (or Common).

 ProtoCessor - RTU Protocol Overview
Modbus RTU is an open, serial (RS-232 or RS-485) protocol based on master/slave or client/server architecture.
The simplicity of Modbus RTU messages is a mixed blessing; on the one hand, the simple message structure ensures widespread, rapid and accurate implementation, but on the other hand, various companies have corrupted the basic 16-bit Modbus RTU register structure to pack in floating point, queues, ASCII text, tables and other types of non-Modbus data.
Modbus RTU can also be multi-dropped, or in other words, multiple slave devices can exist on one Modbus RTU network, assuming that the physical layer allows this, usually via the use of RS-485, modems or radio.

 Modbus RTU FieldServer Driver
Modbus defines a message structure that controllers will recognize and use, regardless of the type of networks over which they communicate.

During communications on a Modbus network, the protocol determines how each controller will know its device address, recognize a message addressed to it, determine the kind of action to be taken, and extract any data or other information contained in the message.
