Float values with modbus

Recommended Posts


I am developping an application that uses Bronkhorst mass flow controllers with modbus communication. Some years later, I used a vision V570 with success. This time, I am using an Unistream and reading floats with modbus doesn't work properly : the 2 registers are inverted so the value is wrong. I tried to revert the register by using buffers and it works perfectly for read values but values to be written are rounded so I can't send setpoint to my controllers. Does anyone have an explanation ?

Below is a snapshot of the conversion code :

I am new to Modbus programming and would like to ask for advice on the above topic. 
In my application I should write a decimal number into a register of a Danfoss control valve. 
What is the best way to convert a REAL value to a UINT?

Below is my first draft, but I get a status error. Can someone explain to me what I did wrong?
