Configure, monitor or update
- 3SMusb and 3SMboot can be used to update the firmware of your Sentera device.
- On this microsite, we will focus on the 3SModbus software.
3SModbus software allows you to configure and monitor your Sentera device.
Sentera devices exchange information via a network, called Modbus RTU. Modbus RTU is a serial communication protocol that uses RS485 technology. In simple terms, it is a method used for transmitting information over serial lines (RS485) between electronic devices. The device requesting the information is called the Master – in this case the computer with 3SModbus software. The devices that supply information are called slave devices. On a standard Modbus RTU network, there is one Master and up to 247 Slaves, each with a unique Slave Address from 1 to 247. The Master can also write information to the Slave devices.
The parameters of the slave devices can be adjusted via Modbus RTU. To facilitate the configuration Sentera devices, we have developed the 3SMCenter software suite. This software can be downloaded via our website.
