Diagnostic Record Read/Write

These need to be tied into a the current server context or linked to the appropriate data

class pymodbus.diag_message.DiagnosticStatusRequest(**kwargs)

This is a base class for all of the diagnostic request functions

__init__(**kwargs)

Base initializer for a diagnostic request

decode(data)

Base decoder for a diagnostic request

Parameters:data – The data to decode into the function code
encode()

Base encoder for a diagnostic response we encode the data set in self.message

Returns:The encoded packet
get_response_pdu_size()

Func_code (1 byte) + Sub function code (2 byte) + Data (2 * N bytes) :return:

class pymodbus.diag_message.DiagnosticStatusResponse(**kwargs)

This is a base class for all of the diagnostic response functions

It works by performing all of the encoding and decoding of variable data and lets the higher classes define what extra data to append and how to execute a request

__init__(**kwargs)

Base initializer for a diagnostic response

decode(data)

Base decoder for a diagnostic response

Parameters:data – The data to decode into the function code
encode()

Base encoder for a diagnostic response we encode the data set in self.message

Returns:The encoded packet
class pymodbus.diag_message.DiagnosticStatusSimpleRequest(data=0, **kwargs)

A large majority of the diagnostic functions are simple status request functions. They work by sending 0x0000 as data and their function code and they are returned 2 bytes of data.

If a function inherits this, they only need to implement the execute method

__init__(data=0, **kwargs)

General initializer for a simple diagnostic request

The data defaults to 0x0000 if not provided as over half of the functions require it.

Parameters:data – The data to send along with the request
execute(*args)

Base function to raise if not implemented

class pymodbus.diag_message.DiagnosticStatusSimpleResponse(data=0, **kwargs)

A large majority of the diagnostic functions are simple status request functions. They work by sending 0x0000 as data and their function code and they are returned 2 bytes of data.

__init__(data=0, **kwargs)

General initializer for a simple diagnostic response

Parameters:data – The resulting data to return to the client
class pymodbus.diag_message.ReturnQueryDataRequest(message=0, **kwargs)

The data passed in the request data field is to be returned (looped back) in the response. The entire response message should be identical to the request.

__init__(message=0, **kwargs)

Initializes a new instance of the request

Parameters:message – The message to send to loopback
execute(*args)

Executes the loopback request (builds the response)

Returns:The populated loopback response message
class pymodbus.diag_message.ReturnQueryDataResponse(message=0, **kwargs)

The data passed in the request data field is to be returned (looped back) in the response. The entire response message should be identical to the request.

__init__(message=0, **kwargs)

Initializes a new instance of the response

Parameters:message – The message to loopback
class pymodbus.diag_message.RestartCommunicationsOptionRequest(toggle=False, **kwargs)

The remote device serial line port must be initialized and restarted, and all of its communications event counters are cleared. If the port is currently in Listen Only Mode, no response is returned. This function is the only one that brings the port out of Listen Only Mode. If the port is not currently in Listen Only Mode, a normal response is returned. This occurs before the restart is executed.

__init__(toggle=False, **kwargs)

Initializes a new request

Parameters:toggle – Set to True to toggle, False otherwise
execute(*args)

Clear event log and restart

Returns:The initialized response message
class pymodbus.diag_message.RestartCommunicationsOptionResponse(toggle=False, **kwargs)

The remote device serial line port must be initialized and restarted, and all of its communications event counters are cleared. If the port is currently in Listen Only Mode, no response is returned. This function is the only one that brings the port out of Listen Only Mode. If the port is not currently in Listen Only Mode, a normal response is returned. This occurs before the restart is executed.

__init__(toggle=False, **kwargs)

Initializes a new response

Parameters:toggle – Set to True if we toggled, False otherwise
class pymodbus.diag_message.ReturnDiagnosticRegisterRequest(data=0, **kwargs)

Execute the diagnostic request on the given device

Returns:The initialized response message
class pymodbus.diag_message.ChangeAsciiInputDelimiterResponse(data=0, **kwargs)

execute(*args)

Execute the diagnostic request on the given device

Returns:The initialized response message
class pymodbus.diag_message.ForceListenOnlyModeResponse(**kwargs)

Execute the diagnostic request on the given device

Returns:The initialized response message

Returns a series of 54 16-bit words (108 bytes) in the data field of the response (this function differs from the usual two-byte length of the data field). The data contains the statistics for the Modbus Plus peer processor in the slave device.
