MDCL-705i – Modbus Data Concentrator with Ethernet, RS-485 Serial Ports and Data Logger



The MDCL-705i is used to collect and store data from multiple Modbus slave devices over the serial communication interface and make the data available to back-end management system via Ethernet communication. In this way, conventional devices can be connected to a modern control system and makes it easy to communicate with most SCADA / HMI system and PLCs through the Modbus TCP protocol.


  • Support Modbus master/slave
  • Supports up to 8 simultaneous Modbus TCP connections
  • Up to 250 sets of Modbus RTU commands and built-in 9600 Modbus data registers
  • Support CSV (Comma-Separated Values) file configuration, easy to use and maintain
  • Built-in microSD memory card for storing Modbus data records
  • Each data can contain 120 parameters
  • The data record can support the ratio conversion function, which converts the original Modbus data into actual engineering units
  • Isolated RS-485 with 2500 VDC isolation voltage protection
