Can I run ION and Modbus protocol on the same serial chain?



Although possible, this is not recommended as high error rates can occur. This is due to the packet structure of the ION and Modbus protocol. Essentially, the modbus meter may "get confused" and send out an error because it is trying to read ION and visa versa.
If possible, have protocol specific serial chains..
