GPS-MB Industrial GPS with NMEA and Modbus Communications

Quick Overview

The GPS-MB is an industrial GPS with NMEA and Modbus communications. The unit has two separate serial ports, one RS232 port for configuration and NMEA output and a second RS485 port for Modbus RTU or Modbus ASCII providing all GPS data (Latitude, Altitude, True Course, Speed, UTC Time, etc) via Modbus registers. The unit is supplied with a magnetic mounted GPS sensor with 3m cable and SMA connector to the GPS-MB, which is DIN Rail mountable. 10-30vDC power supply.
