The Unity documentation shows the following statement for the XMIT block.but it does not specify the PLC
type.  The Unity 140CPU6xxxx only has two Modbus ports.

         Function Description
         The L9_XMIT (transmit) function block sends Modbus messages from a master PLC to multiple slave PLCs or
         sends ASCII character strings from the PLC's Modbus slave port #0, port#1, or port#2 to ASCII printers and
         terminals. L9_XMIT sends these messages over telephone dial up modems, radio modems, or simply direct
         connection.

The L9_XMIT will only work with Modbus port 1 on the 140CPU6xxxx.
