Register Matrix

 

Register Matrix Overview

After selecting devices, a tab named "Register Matrix" is available that lets users search for, read, and write all single-value numeric registers for the currently selected device. A tool similar to this that only looks up register descriptions is available online: Modbus Map

Key Features
  • Reading and writing all registers

Finding a Register

A few quick tips for finding the register or registers you need to write or read:

  • Go the applicable section of the T-series Datasheet to find registers related to particular functionality.
  • Use the "Filter by Tags" on the Register Matrix to narrow the list.
  • If you have some idea of the name of the register, start typing in the Search box on the Register Matrix to see matching registers.

In this example we are going to work with the analog output DAC0 so we type "DAC0" in the Search box.  Note that we could easily update DAC0 using the Dashboard tab, but here we demonstrate using the Register Matrix.

Reading DAC0

Clicking the Selected button moves DAC0 into the Active Registers area and it immediately starts reading the current value of this register.

Note:  DAC0 is a readable & writable (RW) register.  You could see that by clicking on the information button (small i with circle around it) in the register list.

Writing DAC0

To write a new value to DAC0, click the pencil symbol next to it in the Active Registers area, type in the new value, and then click the arrow to send it.  Click the X to exit write mode and start reading again.
