Goals and Symptoms

Does the EGX or ECC automatically detect modbus devices without having to add them the device list setup web page?

Causes and Fixes

The EGX series and ECC series of gateways do not require the user to modify the device list as long as all devices are modbus and not a mix with powerlogic and jbus. Port 2 of the EGX200 and EGX400 however must have a device list set.

The EGX300 has a Device Auto Discovery mode which will go out and determine which devices are on the chain for the user and auto-populate the device list.
