Introduction to Modbus Plus
Modbus Plus is a local area network system designed for industrial control and monitoring applications. The networkenables programmable controllers, host computers and other devices to communicate throughout plants andsubstations. Features of Modbus Plus include: -Peer-to-peer communication between network devices-Shielded twisted pair or fiber optic cable-Support of 64 addressable "nodes" per network (32 per cable run, two cable runs using repeater)-1500 feet on a single twisted pair network; up to 6,000 feet with repeaters-Dual cable and dual network topologies available-Data transfer rate of 1 million bits per second-Data throughput of 20,000 16-bit words per second-High noise immunity and high isolation (1.5kV cable to device) Typical Applications of Modbus Plus in Substation Automation
-Interlocking between PLCs (e.g. bus restoration)-Control and monitoring of protective relay I/O from PLCs-Sharing of analog data among IEDs-Acquisition of data by a network-resident host computer-Transfer of status and control between power plant and substation PLCs-Uploading and downloading of PLC programs-Download of configurations and settings to protective relays and other IEDs Products With Modbus Plus
-Modbus Plus cards for host computers (VME, ISA, Micro Channel)-Modicon Compact, "Slot-Mount", and Quantum PLCs-ModConnect Partner products with the Modbus Plus chip set, such as relays and meters-Fiber optic Modems-Bridges to connect Modbus devices-Bridges to connect other non-Modbus serial devices-Bridges to connect two Modbus Plus networks The Difference Between Modbus and Modbus Plus
Modbus is a messaging structure, widely used to establish master-slave communication between intelligent
devices. A Modbus message sent from a master to a slave contains the address of the slave, the
"command" (e.g. "read register" or "write register"), the data, and a check sum (LRC or CRC). Since Modbus
is just a messaging structure, it can be sent out of any port (e.g. RS232, RS422, RS485) and over all media
(e.g. fiber, radio, cellular, etc.).
Modbus Plus, on the other hand, is a complete protocol and network definition. Modbus Plus uses the
Modbus command structure, but carries the commands in a "token" that is rapidly passed from one device to
another. Modbus Plus defines exactly how the token is passed from one node to another, how retries are
attempted, how data is checked for integrity, how errors are reported and how the communication port is
designed. This highly specific definition of exactly how everything should be done is coded on to a chip set
that is installed in Modbus Plus devices. Modbus Plus also defines how the cable or fiber is connected and
the tools to be used. This controlled definition and implementation is what results in true "plug and play" in
networking systems.
Terminology and Definitions
Personal Computer; laptop, notebook, desktop or industrial (hardened) Programmable Logic Controller or Programmable Controller Intelligent Electronic Device, such as a solid state protective relay or meter Any device that is physically connected to the Modbus Plus Cable. Modbus Plusnodes, such as PLCs, can send messages to other nodes or can be read from orwritten to by other nodes In communications systems, any device that converts or routes a protocol,language, data format or medium from one type to another. For Modbus Plusin substations, four types of 125VDC 19" rack mount bridges are offered: -the configurable BM85D008 to convert from Modbus to Modbus Plus-the programmable BM85D002 to convert third party protocols to Modbus Plus-the BP85D002 for routing from one Modbus Plus network to another-the FR85D200 for converting from Modbus Plus twisted pair to fiber optic A grouping of nodes that are joined by some form of communication medium A grouping of bits that is passed in sequence from one node to another on asingle network. When the token is held by a node, access to the network isgranted for sending Modbus Plus messages A communication protocol and network feature where individual nodes on thenetwork can initiate communication with any other nodes The memory address for a 16-bit word within a PLC MSTR Block:
A function block that can be placed in a ladder logic program to initiatecommunication with other nodes on Modbus Plus.
An instruction to review the contents of a memory location. When a PLC "reads"register 40001 in another PLC, it is looking at the 16-bit word that is in thatmemory location.
An instruction to change the contents of a memory location. When a PLC "writes"to register 40001 in another PLC, it is placing a 16-bit word into that memorylocation.
Global Data:
A memory area in Modbus Plus devices reserved for sharing of information fromother Modbus Plus devices. 32 words (512 bits) from each of up to 63 devicesare held in this memory area. When a Modbus Plus device transfers data into thisGlobal Data area, it is broadcast to all other devices on Modbus Plus.
Peer Cop:
A configuration option for Modicon PLCs enabling one PLC to directly read thestatus of another PLC's inputs or to directly control the other PLC's outputs.
Addressing and Token Rotation
Basic Modbus Plus Operation:
In a Modbus Plus network, each device is given a unique address, from 1 to 64. This address is set with alinear/rotary dip switch (or program instruction on initial set-up dependent on the device).
When the network is initially connected between two or more devices, the token is automatically generated and moves from one node to another, from low address to high address. This "token" can be thought of as anopportunity to communicate. When the token is held by a node on the network, this node can receive datafrom another network device, send out a request for data or send data to another device. Devices on thenetwork do not control the rotation of the token on the network, and they can only hold it for a finite and limitedamount of time (the following tables and examples detail timing and throughput).
Modbus Plus Addressing
Modbus Plus makes possible single byte or multiple byte addressing. Single byte addressing is used fortransactions between devices on the same Modbus Plus network, such as one PLC "reading" data fromanother (examples of this are detailed in the next section). Multiple byte addressing is used when bridging toother Modbus Plus or Modbus networks. The multiple addresses enable requests to move through thebridge(s) and on to the desired device. Examples of single byte/multiple byte addressing are diagrammedbelow: MODEL 385

The "MSTR" Programming Block
This function is used in PLC ladder logic to initiate Modbus Plus communications and diagnostics functions,including: -"Write" data into the Global Data area so it can be broadcast to all other nodes-"Read" data from other devices that have previously placed data into Global Data-"Write" data directly to memory of other nodes-"Read" data directly from memory of other nodes-Obtain "statistics" (health and performance data) about the Modbus Plus network and about the other nodes on the network.
For reading data, the "MSTR" block configuration parameters include:
-the address routing to the node where the data is to be read-the starting register where the data is to be read-the number of registers following the starting register-the starting register in the initiating node where the data is to be placed after it is read For writing between nodes, the "MSTR" block configuration parameters include:

DUAL CONNECTIONS TO TWOMODBUS PLUS OPTION CARDSIN THE PC (Dual Cable SA85s) In dual cable systems, the token is replicated on both cables. The token that arrives first at a node is the onethat is used. If a token is not received on both cables an error message is generated.
In redundant networks, each network has its own token which is independent of the other. Messages andtraffic on Network A is independent of traffic on network B.
Use dual cable for added reliability to protect against broken cables and high noise that may be incident onone of the cables. Use redundant networks to further increase reliability and to divide traffic in a network system (e.g. use one network for time critical interlocking and the other for data acquisition, program upload/download, etc.) Bridging Between Two Modbus Plus Networks
It is sometimes desirable to satisfy system speed and throughput requirements through the use of twoseparate Modbus Plus networks instead of one, with different devices on each network. In these systems,each network generates its own token and the Bridge Plus router makes it possible to move data from onenetwork to another.
Below is an example of two separate Modbus Plus networks operating as one system: MODEL 385

MODEL 385
MODEL 385
B885 Modicon
MODEL 385
MODEL 385
NW BM85D002 BRIDGE MUX MODEL 385
MODEL 385
In this system, network #1 is used to obtain less time critical analogs from relays (for the SCADA RTU PLC),and to keep MMI screens refreshed with new analog data. Relay configurations can also be uploaded anddownloaded. Response time can be variable, based upon traffic, in the order of 50 to 300mS.
Modbus Plus network #2 is used for fast interlocking between PLCs with throughput in the order of 10 to20mS.
The Bridge Plus makes it possible for any device on either network to obtain data from any device on the othernetwork. An example of this would be breaker status and alarm information from the Network #2 PLCs beingwritten to the SCADA RTU PLC on Network #1.
Twisted Pair and Fiber Optic Media
Modbus Plus networks can be made up of shielded twisted pair medium, fiber optic medium or a combinationof these two.
Three types of shielded twisted pair are available for Modbus Plus:
-Modicon-specification Belden cable in 100, 500 or 1000, 1500, 2000 and 5000 foot rolls-Modicon "Super Cable", FT4, FT6, plenum rated, direct burial in a variety of lengths -A Modbus Plus compatible steel jacketed cable is also available from Belden Three Modbus Plus fiber optic modems are currently certified and available:
-The Modicon FR85D200 125VDC 19" rack mountable line drop modem-Fiber Options 291M ModConnect Partner modem (available -20C to +60C and 125VDC)-Weed Fiber Optics Series 6000 ModConnect Partner modem All of the above modems can handle relatively short point-to-point runs (less than 5000 feet) without difficulty.
However, performance will vary between manufacturers where distance get longer and network topologiesbecome complicated. Please consult your local Application Engineer for more information.
Installation Guidelines for Substations
The standard twisted shielded pair is suggested for substation control room installations where distances areless than 1500 feet per network segment.
The Modbus Plus "Super Cable" is recommended for substation yard applications where direct burial ofcabling in trenches is desired. Theoretically, cable run lengths can be up 1500 feet, however, high noise andground rise possibilities may limit recommended lengths to less than 500 feet.
Note: there are about three dozen installations of this cable in distribution substations, each with cable rundistances of 200 to 300 feet (about feet 200 maximum radial distance from the control room). No problemshave been experienced in any of these systems.
Fiber optic cable should be used where distances are long or where the noise or ground potential rise is known to be unusually high.
Twisted pair and fiber optic can be combined in a hybrid system to keep hardware and installation costsdown. The following is a suggested hybrid twisted pair and fiber optic system: MODEL 385

Timing and Throughput
General Guidelines for Throughput Times Between Two Nodes
Throughput over Modbus Plus is primarily a function of two factors; the time required for the Modbus Plus device toexecute the read or write function (scan time) and the time required for the Modbus Plus token to move the data (tokenrotation time) The following example details the timing elements related to throughput between two PLCs. These are estimates; acomplete definition and equations detailing throughput are available in the product brochure entitled "Modbus PlusNetwork Planning and Installation Guide".

Calculating Token Rotation Time
Token Rotation time is a primarily a function of two factors; the number of nodes on the Modbus Plus networkand the amount of data being transferred by each node. The following chart can be used to estimate tokenrotation times: TOKEN ROTATION TIME B EACH NODE TRANSFERRING 32 REGISTERS OF GLOBAL DATA C EACH NODE TRANSFERRING 32 REGISTERS OF GLOBAL DATA AND READING OR WRITING 100 REGISTERS TO ANOTHER NODE D EACH NODE TRANSFERRING 32 REGISTERS OF GLOBAL DATA AND READING OR WRITING 200 REGISTERS TO ANOTHER NODE E EACH NODE TRANSFERRING 32 REGISTERS OF GLOBAL DATA AND READING OR WRITING 300 REGISTERS TO ANOTHER NODE F EACH NODE TRANSFERRING 32 REGISTERS OF GLOBAL DATA AND READING OR WRITING 400 REGISTERS TO ANOTHER NODE NUMBER OF MODBUS PLUS NODES Token Regeneration Time Token Regeneration Time
When a Modbus Plus node leaves the Modbus Plus network, the token rotation sequence must be
re-established with the new number of nodes, typically within 100mS. If this amount of time is greater than the
process can tolerate, and the probability of its occurrence during critical operations is considered too high,
dual controller / redundant network architectures should be considered.
Timing and Throughput (continued)
Enhancing Modbus Plus Throughput
1. Use Global Data. Global Data will result in the shortest time to deliver data from one node to another. In
addition, programming will be simplified; once a node places data into its Global Data area, this data
automatically gets transferred to all other Modbus Plus nodes. These nodes only have to move the data from
the Global Data area to active memory area to use the data. You can broadcast up to 32 registers using the
network's global data base, with up to 63 nodes receiving this data during the current token pass. The use of
Global Data can increase throughput between nodes by 50 to 60% compared to the use of MSTR "reads and
"writes".
2. Use peer-to-peer communication techniques, rather than master-slave polling. Design the
system to have Modbus Plus devices send information only when things change, rather than having the
operator interface or other devices check all the time. This reduces the total quantity of transactions on thenetwork, improving network performance.
3. Each controller on the network should have no more than four MSTR "read" or "write"
functions active at the same time.
Modbus Plus is designed with a certain number of "paths" or
channels for reading, writing and programming. The use of four or less of these paths for reading or writing
makes most efficient use of these paths and prevents messages from being placed in a queue.
4. Read or write larger blocks of data. Two MSTR "write" instructions to send 50 words each takes
almost twice as long as one "write" instruction to send 100 words. The difference between sending 50 words
and 100 words is less than one millisecond.
5. Activate MSTR "reads" and "writes" periodically, rather than all the time. If a device on
Modbus Plus attempts to read or write data as often as it possibly can, it will likely place data on the Modbus
Plus network more often than is needed. For example, if a PLC with a 20mS scan time is set up with a timer to
write 100 words of analog data to another PLC every 300mS, the traffic on the network will be reduced by a
factor of about 15 times, compared to the same PLC writing as often as it can.
6. Use more than one Modbus Plus network, with a bridge in between, to divide network traffic. One
network could handle the higher speed, time critical interlocks, while the other could handle slower, data
intensive program or file uploads and downloads. The bridge makes it possible for devices on one network to
obtain data from the other network.
Network Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
All Modbus Plus products are provided with a variety of diagnostic and troubleshooting tools, including: 1. A flashing Modbus Plus status light. The frequency and pattern of flashes provides a simple way of
determining network health. The following are a few of the diagnostic blinking codes:
Six flashes per second, continuous
The Modbus Plus device (or "node") is properly communicating on the network
Four flashes, then off for 1.4 seconds
The Modbus Plus node has heard a valid message from another node having the same address
Three flashes, then off for 1.7 seconds
The Modbus Plus node finds no other nodes on the network
Two flashes, then off for 2 seconds
The Modbus Plus node finds other nodes on the network, but is not receiving the token
One flash per second
The Modbus Plus node is initializing and should go into one of the four states above in five seconds (max.)
2. The "Get Local Statistics" and "Get Remote Statistics" Functions, which enable Modbus
Plus devices to monitor network activity, including the health of other devices on the network, number of
successful token rotations, retries and the token rotation time.
3. The "MBP Stat" utility, provided with the optional Modbus Plus adapters used to connect PCs and
Workstations to Modbus Plus. This utility graphically shows the type of Modbus Plus devices attached to the
network, their address, number of successful token rotations, retries, token rotation times and other diagnostic
functions.
4. Confirmation of transactions. "Reads" and "writes" between devices are monitored and confirmed
for "active", "complete" or "error". These confirmations are accessible in real time by the Modbus Plus device
and can be used for alarming or alternate routing of Modbus Plus messages.

INSITE Substation Monitoring System

INSITE is an on-line real-time system designed to monitor the health of circuit breakers, transformer and othersubstation apparatus in real time. Direct Modbus Plus connectivity is offered to collect data fromapparatus-mounted INSITE monitors and move these data to a substation PC.
The follow diagram shows a typical system with Doble INSITE and other Substation Automation equipment onModbus Plus: NW BM85D002 BRIDGE MUX MODBUS PLUS NETWORK #2 NW BM85D002 BRIDGE MUX MODBUS PLUS NETWORK #1 NW BM85D008 BRIDGE MUX MODEL 385
DATA ACQUISITION UNITS ON SUBSTATION APPARATUS In this system, two Modbus Plus networks are used to split the network traffic:
- Network #1 is used to provide fast updates and interlocking between operator interfaces,
PLCs and SCADA. Changes in discrete points and other time sensitive data is made available to networkdevices in typically less than 100mS in network configurations such as this.
- Network #2 is used to handle occasional large uploads of hundreds of thousands of bytes of breaker
data from the INSITE monitors. Response time on this network during these times of heavy loading couldbe in the order of 500mS to one second.
The PC is equipped with two Modbus Plus option cards, one for each network, to facilitate communication toand from Modbus Plus devices on each network. Please note that a single PC may not be able to perform allof the substation automation functions simultaneously in large installations.
The Bridge Plus (BP85D002) makes it possible for devices on Network #1 to access data from devices onNetwork #2 and vice versa. Much of the analog data required by SCADA can be provided by the INSITEmonitors (through "reads" by the PLC or by the BM85D002), if accuracy and throughput are sufficient.
C. Modbus Plus Between a PC (Operator Interface)
and Other Substation IEDs

There are a number of ways to connect a PC to a Modbus Plus network to enable it to exchange data withother IEDs.
Direct PC connections to Modbus Plus are possible by using either a Modbus Plus PCMCIA
adapter or an ISA option module (SA85). Either approach enables the PC to read and write data to and fromnetwork devices at a rate 10 to 100 times faster than protocols at RS232 9600 baud.
PCs with only Modbus communication capability can connect to devices on the Modbus Plus
network in two ways as shown below:
MODEL 385
NW BM85D002 BRIDGE MUX BM85D008BRIDGE MUX A. The PC is attached to the BM85D008 Bridge Mux which routes Modbus "read" and "write" messagestransparently through to the desired device on Modbus Plus B. The PC is attached to any PLC that supports both Modbus and Modbus Plus. The PLC routes Modbus"read" and "write" messages transparently through to the desired device on Modbus Plus D. Modbus Plus in a Sequence of Events Recording (SER)
System

A 32-point Sequence of Events Recording System (SER) for Modicon 800-Series PLCs is available fromMonaghan Engineering, a ModConnect Partner. These SER modules, Modicon PLCs and PCs can beinterconnected as follows with Modbus Plus: PC WITH SER RECORDINGSOFTWARE PLC WITH SER MODULES PLC WITH SER MODULES SEQUENCE OF EVENTS RECORDING -POINT CONFIRMATION MODEL 385
MODEL 385
-ADDRESS DATA BAS SETUP SYNCHRONIZATION NETWORK MODBUS PLUS NETWORK In these systems, Modbus Plus links the PC (equipped with SER software) and the PLCs containing SER modules.
The Windows PC-based SER software performs the following functions: -sends SER point configuration across Modbus Plus to the PLC, where it is loaded into the SER modules-receives SER event data over Modbus Plus from the PLCs.
Features of the Monaghan SER system include:
-True 1 ms resolution-Four Synchronization options:* -IRIG B-Trimble Acutime-60 Hz-Self-Synchronization -32 SER Points per SER module-Multiple SER modules per PLC-24, 48 or 125 VDC-PLC can use SER input points as control inputs in its logic program-Each SER Point configurable for -Chattering Contact Filter-Debounce Filter-ON/OFF Scan -Simple Windows-based manual set-up-Time stamped data directly available from the 984 PLC memory E. Modbus Plus Between Modicon PLCs
Modicon PLCs use two techniques to communicate over Modbus Plus.
The first technique is through the use of the "MSTR" function block to:
-Read and write registers between PLCs-Read "statistics" or health of the other controller-Move data into the Global Data area so it can be written to other controllers on the network The second technique is through the use of "Peer Cop". Peer cop enables one PLC to use another PLC's
input and output points as if they were its own. During configuration, certain inputs and outputs of onecontroller are "mapped" to another controller. This simplifies the programming of operations where onecontroller needs to act as a master to the other.
Please refer to the section of this document entitled "Timing and Throughput" of the analysis of the throughputbetween Modicon PLCs.
The following Modicon controllers are provided with built-in Modbus Plus communication capability: Compact 984 Controllers
-984-145-984-245 (flash-based and twice as fast as -145 above)-984-255 (extended memory version of -245 above) 984 "Slot-mount" controllers
-984-385 (available in AC or 125 VDC versions)-984-485 (AC only)-985-685 (AC only)-984-785 (available in AC or 125 VDC versions)The -685 and -785 models are about twice as fast as the -385 and -485 and have larger memories -All are available with Modbus Plus The slot-mount 984 Controllers and Quantum controllers are also avaiable with redundant Modbus Plus cableand redundant Modbus Plus Network capability. Please refer to the section of this document entitled"Available network Topologies" for a description of these options.
