Detailed Description

Communication via Modbus requires the interaction between a single Modbus client instance and multiple Modbus servers. This class provides the client implementation via a serial port.

Member Function Documentation

QModbusRtuSerialMaster::QModbusRtuSerialMaster(QObject *parent = nullptr)

Constructs a serial Modbus master with the specified parent.

[override virtual protected] void QModbusRtuSerialMaster::close()

Reimplements: QModbusDevice::close().

int QModbusRtuSerialMaster::interFrameDelay() const

Returns the amount of microseconds for the silent interval between two consecutive Modbus messages.

See also setInterFrameDelay().

[override virtual protected] bool QModbusRtuSerialMaster::open()

Reimplements: QModbusDevice::open().

Note: When calling this function, existing buffered data is removed from the serial port.

void QModbusRtuSerialMaster::setInterFrameDelay(int microseconds)

Sets the amount of microseconds for the silent interval between two consecutive Modbus messages. By default, the class implementation will use a pre-calculated value according to the Modbus specification. A active or running connection is not affected by such delay changes.

Note: If microseconds is set to -1 or microseconds is less than the pre-calculated delay then this pre-calculated value is used as frame delay.

See also interFrameDelay().

void QModbusRtuSerialMaster::setTurnaroundDelay(int turnaroundDelay)

Sets the amount of milliseconds for the silent interval between a Modbus broadcast and a consecutive Modbus messages to turnaroundDelay. Typically the turnaround delay is in the range of 100 to 200 milliseconds.

This function was introduced in Qt 5.13.

See also turnaroundDelay().

int QModbusRtuSerialMaster::turnaroundDelay() const

Returns the amount of milliseconds for the silent interval between a Modbus broadcast and a consecutive Modbus messages. The default value is set to 100 milliseconds.

This function was introduced in Qt 5.13.

See also setTurnaroundDelay().
