Is ILS2 integrated drive would communicate with M340 / Quntam / Premium PLC ranges on Modbus TCP / IP.

Yes,ILS2 system is compatible to communicate with M340 / Quantum / Premium PLC ranges on Modbus / TCP  through IO Scanning functionality using dedicated Network module.

The I/O Scanning service is used to periodically exchange I/O data between a controller and a device.

The I/O Scanning service must be configured in the controller. The controller uses the following Modbus function codes for the I/O Scanning service:

• FC3 (16#03), Read Multiple Registers
• FC16 (16#10), Write Multiple Registers
• FC23 (16#17), Read-Write Mulitple Registers

To use the I/O Scanning service, the Modbus Unit Identifier 255 must be used. This must be configured in the controller.
Only one controller at a time can use the I/O Scanning on the device.
The Modbus register addresses for I/O Scanning do not differ from the register addresses for normal Modbus access.
