Does the Link150 support mixed mode ION and Modbus protocols on the same daisy chain

Published date: 13 September 2019

Issue
Can I use the the Link 150 (EGX150) to communicate with ION and Modbus protocols on the same daisy chain?

Product Line
EGX150, Link 150

Environment
Gateway Protocol Support; communications

Cause
I need to retrofit legacy modbus devices with ION meters.

Resolution
The Link 150 does support ION and Modbus but not concurrently.  It is possible to enable only one protocol at a time, either Modbus/TCP or ION Protocol.

To select either ION or Modbus, do the following:
1.  Navigate to the Configuration & Settings tab
2.  On the navigation pane on the left, select Advanced Services Control under Other Configuration.
3.  Under Industrial Protocols select MODBUS/TCP for Modbus TCP and ION Pass Through for ION protocol.
