I am trying to interface into a OMEGA temperature probe so that I can actually read and display the temperature that the device reads. I am looking to reference the Unfiltered (0x0F) address location so that I can pull the information.

How would I go about doing that?

I have attached the address locations of the device.

Not familiar with that module. Can you post vendor link and pic?

I have worked with these and Arduino. Do you want to read with VBS?

Shaun this will not open in my IDE. However do I actually need a Modbus plugin?

Why VB6 and not .NET?

Shaun It will not open up in VS 2017. I am using the VB.net IDE but it will not open up in it

Guess you are confusing VB6 and VB .NET

Here is a .NET sample project

Shaun great, that does work. Now looking inside the download. It does have a .dll that I can use for my .net project?
