    Hi Folkes,

    We have used HTBasic with HPIB/GPIB to talk to an Agilent 34970A data acquisition & switch unit with great success for many years.
    We would now like to add a new oxygen analyser instrument to our system which will only provide optimum resolution if we use MODBUS.
    I would be very interested to hear advice on how to approach MODBUS communication in HTBasic.
    Thus far I am thinking of using the ICS 4899A GPIB to Modbus interface. Would that be overkill?
    Is there a simple way to use serial communication directly without having to worry about packet formatting?
    Thank you for looking at this post. I look forward to your replies.

    Peter
