What is ModLink?

ModLink is a set of native VCL components for Borland/CodeGear/Embarcadero Delphi and C++Builder that offer a sophisticated solution for seamless integration of Modbus communication protocol into your own Windows applications.

With ModLink, you can easily turn any Windows application into either Modbus client that initiates network transactions in order to request a remote Modbus server to perform a specific action, or Modbus server that listens for incoming requests from a remote Modbus client and performs an appropriate action.

What is Modbus?

Modbus is an application layer messaging protocol, positioned at level 7 of the OSI model, that provides client/server communication between devices connected on different types of buses or networks. In Modbus protocol, only one device (client/master) can initiate transactions (requests) that are received by other devices (servers/slaves). Upon receipt of a request, the servers perform an appropriate action and return a message (response) back to the client.
