Using MBMaster to verify that a Modbus device is working.
MbMaster can be used to determine if a modbus device is working.
Run this program from a DOS prompt.
For example here is a sample where I connect to a 6200 device at 19,200 baud. I am using the PC's COM2. The meter's Unit ID is 100 and it is configured to use the Modbus protocol. I am asking for Modbus address 44000 which provides the password for this meter. My meter's password is 0.
MBMaster provides quite a bit of diagnostic information which you can ignore in this case. Just look for the data from the register.
