Modbus Read Holding Registers more than 125

Highlighted

Hi,

 

I've been using NI Modbus library for years and I now have PLCs that supports requests of maximum 1024 bytes (512 registers). The classic Modbus maximum register quantity per request is known to be 125 (250 bytes + 6 bytes of overhead). A PLC such as Schneider M580 seems to now accept 500 registers requests (or maybe more but the total is 1024 bytes).

 

If I try to read 126 registers with NI Modbus library as it is right now, I obviously get error message 3. Is it possible to modify the library to allow request of 500 requests for instance?

 

I know I could do several request but I'm facing a performance issue and I already know that the quantity of request is the cause. My solution would be to reduce request quantity.

 

I found that article but I can't find how it works following the instruction : http://labviewtime.blogspot.com/2014/08/changing-ni-modbus-lib-to-send-large.html

 

I joined my test vi.

 

Thank you!
