We also have a need for communication via Ethernet/IP for MC4x and MD4.
I've gotten 4-5 requests from different people/companies for Modbus support, lots of industrial applications for subsystems, are there any plans towards this by any chance?
On IQAN system we have system communication ports in CAN: J-1939, or Genereic CAN (CAN-Open)
The Ethernet ports are implemented for Diagosics interface with PC tools, and IP Camera's . Maybe in future Ethernet ports could be used for communication purposes, but not yet in further develomemt .
The Parker IQAN system is more and more succesfully used in Industrial type controlsystem replacing PLC's and Industrial HMI interfaces.
In order to have the IQAN CAN bus to communicate with subsytems using Profibus, Modbus, EtherCat, Profinet, etc.. CAN Interface gateways are succesfully used, for example Anybus gateways : https://www.anybus.com/technologies/industrial-ethernet/modbus-tcp
