Parameter display and Configuration of MFM can also be done from a
remote location via MODBUS communication. Following sub-sections
describe the MODBUS function codes used and, addresses for each
parameter for display and configuration.
The display parameters can only be read from the unit using function code
0x03, while the configuration can be read using function code 0x03 and
modified using function code 0x06.

Frame: <address><function code><data address><number of bytes>/<data><CRC>

9.1. Writing Configuration Parameters (except CTR/PTR ratio):


Function Code 0x06 (Write Holding Registers)

Request
Function code 1 Byte 0x06
Register Address 2 Bytes 0x0000 to 0xFFFF
Register Value 2 Bytes 0x0000 to 0xFFFF

Response
Function code 1 Byte 0x06
Register Address 2 Bytes 0x0000 to 0xFFFF
Register Value 2 Bytes 0x0000 to 0xFFFF

Error
Error code 1 Byte 0x86
Exception code 1 Byte 01 or 02 or 03 or 04

For configuration parameters exception code 03 indicate that the data send is
out of the boundary limit.

9.2. Reading Configuration Parameters:

Function Code 0x03(Read Holding Registers)

Request
Function code 1 Byte 0x03
Starting Address 2 Bytes 0x0000 to 0xFFFF
Quantity of Registers 2 Bytes 1 to 32

Response
Function code 1 Byte 0x03
Byte count 1 Byte 2 x N*

19
AE-9000 User Manual

Register value N* x 2 Bytes

*N = Quantity of Registers

Error
Error code 1 Byte 0x83
Exception code 1 Byte 01 or 02 or 03 or 04

9.3. Writing configuration parameter for CTR/PTR ratio:


Function Code 0x10 (Write Multiple Registers)

Request format
Function code 1 Byte 0x10
Starting Address 2 Bytes 0x00F4 & 0x00FC
Quantity of Register 2 Bytes 0x0004
Number of Byte 1 Bytes 0x08
Data Byte

Response
Function code 1 Byte 0x10
Starting Address 2 Bytes 0x00F4 & 0x00FC
Quantity of Register 2 Bytes 0x0004

Error
Error code 1 Byte 0x90
Exception code 1 Byte 02 or 03

For CTR/PTR ratio “write multiple registers’ code is used. Since PTR/CTR
primary & secondary value are of 2 word long , while write holding register
can send only one byte of data at a time so because of this write multiple
register code is used to send both 2 word together. Here in code we have sent
both primary & secondary value of CTR/PTR together. This is done so that
the ratio can be computed immediately and error can be flagged if ratio is
invalid. If primary and secondary are sent independently, ratio computation
may not be correct with new value of one parameter and old value of another.
The ratio of CTR/PTR is calculated from the primary & secondary value, &
depending upon that if the ratio is within the maximum limit than the primary
& secondary values are stored in memory otherwise no change in the output
takes place.
Example:
Consider that if we want to set PTR ratio as 1000 for that we have
consider PTR primary value as 1000 & PTR secondary value as 1. So the data
that will be sent through modbus is given below
01 10 00 FC 00 04 08 03 E8 00 00 00 01 00 00:

20
AE-9000 User Manual

Here 01 is the slave address, 10 is the function code, 00 FC is the PTR


primary address.
00 04 is the quantity of register, 08 is the no. of byte, 03 e8 00 00 is the value
for PTR primary i.e. is 1000 & 00 01 00 00 is the value for PTR secondary i.e.
is 1.
Exception code logic:

If incorrect function code : Exception code = 01


If registers requested not in range 0 – 32 : Exception code = 03
If requested addresses invalid : Exception code = 02
If Slave internal error : Exception code = 04

The limits checks are provided by first comparing the address of the
incoming message with the assigned address for the various parameters
in order to know that message belongs to particular parameter. Now the
value in the message is compared with the boundary limits of that

particular parameter & if the value is out of the boundary range then
exception value [03 = illegal data value] is returned otherwise that
value is updated Before Reading Configuration Parameters, Master has
to write the value 0x04 to the Page register.

9.5. Reading Logged Data:

Function Code 0x03(Read Holding Registers)

Request
Function code 1 Byte 0x03

Quantity of Registers 2 Bytes 1 to 32

Response

*N = Quantity of Registers

Error
Error code 1 Byte 0x83
Exception code 1 Byte 01 or 02 or 03 or 04

Since Logged data will be larger than 125 bytes, master would send
multiple read requests, in order to read complete logging data.

It is unknown to the master before hand as to how many data bytes are
logged in memory; hence the master would be required to send the read
requests until it receives an exception saying invalid address, which
would indicate that all logged data has been read.

In case of error in communication at any point during logged data


transfer, master may initiate the read from the beginning or from the
address where the communication had failed.

Since protocol allows only 64 K of memory addressing, the total available


memory is divided into 4 pages, numbered 0 – 3. Hence master has to update
the page register in order to read form specific page.

It is not possible to read from addresses 0x00 to 0x399 when page register 0 is
selected (Reserved for configuration data can be read by selecting Page
number 4 as mentioned above). Master will get an exception Invalid Address
in case an attempt to read this space is made for page register 0.

Only 64 bytes of data can be read per message as opposed to 125 defined by
the protocol, in order to maintain proper page boundaries. Once data from one
page is read, Master must ensure incrementing the value of page register in

25
AE-9000 User Manual

order to read further data. Table below give information about page number
and valid address range.

Page Number Start Add End Add


0 0x0400 0xFFFF
1 0x0000 0xFFFF
2 0x0008 0xFFFF
3 0x0000 0xFFFF
4 0x0000 0x0399

The protocol for log data is given below

<0xABAB (16 bit)> <Number of data byte (16 bit)><Actual Data byte (number
of data byte)><CRC (16 bit)>

In this 0xABAB is header which indicate start of data log frame, next two
bytes are give number of data bytes log in log period. After that actual
parameter are log. At end of each frame of data logging 16 bit CRC for error
check.

check. To indicate a power on interruption 0x00D2 is send.
