Issue
Can an ION or Powerlogic meter be used as both a gateway connection and Modbus Master simultaneously?

Product Line
ION 7550, 7650, 7550 RTU, ION7400, PM8000

Environment
meter functionality

Resolution
If the meter  has the 'ModbusGate Connection' setup register enabled within the Modbus Master Options module the meter can both act as a Modbus Master and as a pass through gateway connection simultaneously.  The master meter can still be polled using modbus slave ID 255.

Kindly refer to FA309352 on how to set up a meter as a modbus Master and FA212220 on how to set up a meter as a modbus gateway.

NOTE: 
The ION8650 cannot be used as a modbus gateway.
