MBLogic for an open world in automation
MBAsyncServer is a simple passive Modbus/TCP server (slave). If you have two or more Modbus/TCP clients (masters), they can't normally talk directly to each other. MBAsyncServer solves this by allowing each of the clients to exchange information through its data table.
The soft logic in MBLogic is optional, allowing it to be used as just a communications platform.
MBLogic can act as both a client and a server. It can in fact run multiple clients and multiple servers simultaneously. It can therefore act as a proxy or data concentrator. Since it also provides web services, it can act as a gateway for MRP/ERP connectivity.
