I’m looking for good and reliable Modbus TCP gateways and I don’t want any cheap boxes e.g. from Aliepxress.
I have been using Modbus RTU gateways (Nport 5XXX) for several years and some of them must be now ~10 years old. They have been very reliable.
Now I’m migrating gradually my home automation system from Homeseer to OH and changing the MB RTU boxes to MB TCP. I already have one MGate 3180 which I bought from Ebay several years ago but at that time I didn’t get it working because I thought it was a RTU device, but it wasn’t. I have now been playing with it under OH and it works really nicely.
My controllers are not daisy chained so each controller would need its own TCP gateway. I can possible recable some of the controllers but the controllers are located around our house so I wouldn’t like to do any recabling.
Only issue I’m having now is that Moxa MB TCP devices are pretty expensive, even in Ebay. I managed to find MGate 3480 with 4 ports from Ebay, though. So, I’m looking for cheaper but good quality devices. Any recommendations?
