Get Your USB Barcode Scanners Connected Directly to Your Modbus RTU Slave Devices
The 460MMUSB moves data between up to 2 USB devices like barcode scanners or printers and up to 32 Modbus RTU Slave devices. It’s the perfect tool to tie your USB devices to your Modbus RTU system. Best of all the product is Made in the USA, is always in stock and comes with a 5 year warranty.
How Do I Use the 460MMUSB-N70U in My Application?
Incoming ASCII data from a USB device is mapped directly to registers in your Modbus RTU Slave devices. You set how often the gateway updates the data to the Slaves. This update is cyclic, not event based. For event based processing, like most barcode scans, you can map an additional counter that increments whenever a successful message is received from the USB device.
If your device uses delimiters, the 460MMUSB can be configured to automatically remove the delimiters, no need to deal with the delimiters in your Slaves. If you need to parse your data, the 460MMUSB can parse a string of ASCII data in up to 50 segments by delimiter or offset.
Why Use Real Time Automation as a Gateway Supplier?
While there are certainly other companies offering protocol gateways, there is no one who provides the level of support and service that you receive from RTA.
When you call, a live person answers the phone. When you talk with sales, you will get honest answers and recommendations. When you get support, it is from an engineer who had a hand in the product’s development, and support doesn’t require a ticket or 24-hour wait.

“I challenged a customer to get it working by the time I got back from his break room with a Coke and he indeed had it working when I got back. He then said, "It’s worth twice the price!"”

“Everything seems to be working as we imagined. Thanks for the great response time. I did not see any way to save the configuration other than screen shots, but the configuration did not get lost in the update. Thanks again, and you were a pleasure to work with.”
