Software - Other
Merbon RUNTIME is a license for a software that is able to process compiled Merbon projects. It can be run on a Linux or Windows-based platform, e.g., a server PC or a small embedded device. The runtime has no software limitation regarding data points, communication channels etc. The limits are given by the hardware resources of the platform.
Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP
Merbon RUNTIME is part of all Merbon PLCs; the runtime needs no extra licensing on Merbon hardware. Merbon IDE now supports Modbus RTU and TCP communication, both client and server implementation. M-Bus and IEC 62056-21 for energy metering are also available. Communication between process stations (peer to peer) and with SoftPLC controllers is also possible. Data exchange over internal SSCP protocol, support of both
Ethernet and serial line. Integration into 3rd party clients through native Modbus RTU or TCP server, BACnet/IP server or external OPC UA/DCOM server.
Applications: data acquisition and processing systems; 3rd party integration, such as meter or communicative sensors integration; customized development of PLCs
