Modbus for Grundfos pumps

Modbus for Grundfos pumps The system diagrams provide an overview of the different technologies and how to connect the module or unit to the Grundfos E pump that you connect to a Modbus network.

With Modbus cards, the pumps can be controlled from the monitoring system (or from PLC), and all technical parameters are available from the units.

CIU solution

The Communication Interface Unit (CIU) is a box with a power supply module and a CIM Modbus module. You can mount either on a DIN rail or on a wall.
You use it in conjunction with Grundfos E-pumps that do not support an internal, add-on communication module, CIM.

CIM solution

Grundfos CIM 500 Modbus TCP The Communication Interface Module (CIM) is an add-on communication module you install internally in a Grundfos E-pump using a 10-pin connection. In this setup, the E-pump will supply power to CIM 200.
For mounting of the CIM add-on module, see the installation and operating instructions for the E-pump in question.

Application example

Grundfos CIM 200 Modbus RTU application example

Through the CIM 200 module, the Grundfos pump can be controlled directly from the various controllers, and all its parameters can be read. These parameters can be displayed, for example, on HMI or SCADA. The Ethernet / RS485 converter converts TCP telegrams into RTU form and transmits them as such. Thanks to this unit, the connection can serve several master units (multimaster). The video below shows (and hears) the operation of the first Labview test program. This is just a test program I wrote to test the connection, not a particularly spectacular application.
