Detailed Description#

A Modbus request usually consists of a single byte describing the FunctionCode and N bytes of payload

A typical Modbus request can looks like this:

QModbusRequest request(QModbusRequest::WriteMultipleCoils,


When using the constructor taking the QByteArray, please make sure to convert the containing data to big-endian byte order before creating the request.

The same request can be created like this, if the values are known at compile time:

quint16 startAddress = 19, numberOfCoils = 10;
quint8 payloadInBytes = 2, outputHigh = 0xcd, outputLow = 0x01;
QModbusRequest request(QModbusRequest::WriteMultipleCoils, startAddress, numberOfCoils,
    payloadInBytes, outputHigh, outputLow);
class PySide6.QtSerialBus.QModbusRequest#

PySide6.QtSerialBus.QModbusRequest(code[, newData=QByteArray()])



Constructs an invalid QModbusRequest .

Constructs a QModbusResponse with function code set to code and payload set to data. The data is expected to be stored in big-endian byte order already.

Constructs a copy of pdu.

static PySide6.QtSerialBus.QModbusRequest.calculateDataSize(pdu)#


Return type:


Calculates the expected data size for request based on the request’s function code and data. Returns the full size of the request’s data part; -1 if the size could not be properly calculated.

static PySide6.QtSerialBus.QModbusRequest.minimumDataSize(pdu)#


Return type:


Returns the expected minimum data size for request based on the request’s function code; -1 if the function code is not known.
