Modbus Function Codes

Each command starts with an address followed by a function code. These are used to read data from discrete inputs and input registers. They can also read/write data on coils and holding registers of each Modbus device you address.

The following is a table of object types provided by a Modbus slave device to a Modbus master device:

Object type Access Size
Coil Read-write 1 bit
Discrete input Read-only 1 bit
Input register Read-only 16 bits
Holding register Read-write 16 bits

Modbus Frame

The frame format is composed of an Application Data Unit (ADU), which encloses a Protocol Data Unit (PDU):

  • ADU = Address + PDU + Error check
  • PDU = Function code + Data

Most used Function Codes

All Modbus Function Codes

The various reading, writing and other operations are categorised as follows. The most primitive reads and writes are shown in bold. A number of sources use alternative terminology, for example Force Single Coil where the standard uses Write Single Coil. Prominent entities within a Modbus slave are:

  • Coils (1 bit): readable and writable, states: on/off
  • Discrete Inputs (1 bit): readable, states: on/off
  • Input Registers (16 bit): readable, essentially measurements and statuses
  • Holding Registers (16 bit): readable and writable, essentially configuration values
