Babel Buster SP-GW is a transparent gateway for mapping Modbus RTU devices to Modbus TCP and vice versa. All requests received from an RS-485 Modbus RTU master are passed straight through to Modbus TCP servers. When configured to go the other way, all requests received from a Modbus TCP client are passed straight through to RS-485 Modbus RTU slaves. The SP-GW is non-mapping in terms of mapping registers. The SP-GW does not have any internal registers. It strictly maps RTU slave addresses to IP addresses.

The SP-GW includes its own internal web server that provides a web based user interface for configuring the SP-GW. Configuration is done using simple templates, and each web page has an online help section at the bottom.
