The iQ Series of gas analyzers use MODBUS protocol which enables the user to perform the functions of reading the various concentrations and other measurement values, read the status of the digital outputs of the analyzer, to trigger or simulate the activation of a digital input to the instrument and to change operational settings in the instrument.
The MODBUS commands that are implemented are explained in detail in the iQ Communications Manual. iQ Series Communications Manual.
