Hi there, we have a Smart Axis Touch running Modbus on RS485 as the master, just wondering, can I add a second RS485 Channel if I use a RS485 Module in the expansion port of the HMI? Would like to run this second port as a slave. Or possibly USE the Ethernet Connection as the second Modbus Port?

This forum is still fairly small, sorry you haven't had your question answered. I could be wrong but I don't believe the FC6A-PC3 RS485 comm cartridge is compatible with the FT1A-Touch. I use Modbus TCP all the time on the Touch and it works fine. I've never tried to simultaneously use RS485 and Modbus TCP so I'm afraid I can't help you there.
