  1. Using ACE, open the default config you used in the "Getting Started Guide"
  2. Download the Elecsys-ModbusTCP-Demo.xml from the site, and open the downloaded .xml file within the same ACE window as your "Getting Started Guide" configuration

    1. You will need to extract the .xml file from the .zip file you downloaded from the website. By default, ACE stores configuration files in the Documents\Elecsys\ACE\CFG folder, but you can store the configuration in any file location accessible by the ACE program.

    2. You cannot copy/paste nodes unless both configurations are open within the same instance of ACE. You can use the "Tile" buttons to have the windows automatically size themselves within the ACE program:

  3. Copy and paste the following objects from the Elecsys-Modbus-Demo config into the configuration you created in the "Getting Started" guide:

  5. Edit the "NetCircuit0" object to match the settings on your Modbus device

  6. Edit the "Micro820" object to poll the appropriate registers for your Modbus device.

  7. Edit your RtdbMod object so that it contains the correct number of database holding registers for the Modbus polls
  8. Edit your Custom_Reports0 object so that it shows some of the Modbus tags you will be polling
  9. Edit your MasterChannel0 → Scan Table to set the scan rate for the polls configured in the poll table. For more information on how scan tables are configured, see Scan Table Configuration.
