Modbus best practices for Ethernet

In order for your meter to operate as an Ethernet Modbus device, you must complete some prerequisite configuration.
NOTE: You do not need to perform any Modbus-specific configuration for your meter to function as a Modbus slave device over Ethernet.
Prerequisite Description
Ethernet All devices must have a working Ethernet connection.
IP address All devices must have a unique IP address.
Port All devices must be communicating over Ethernet port 502 for Modbus TCP.
NOTE: Devices supporting multiple simultaneous Modbus TCP connections can have communications delays. Adjust your network timeout settings to accommodate this.
