How can we improve PI Interfaces?

Support multiple Modbus devices on the same machine

Add support for multiple Modbus devices (using the same IP address but different port numbers) on the same machine. For example, the interface could allow the user to configure something like this:

/dn= xxx.xx.xxx.xx:43120,/cn=1,/polldelay=0,/to=2,/rci=30,/writedelay=0,/debug=0,/disabled=0
/dn= xxx.xx.xxx.xx:43122,/cn=1,/polldelay=0,/to=2,/rci=30,/writedelay=0,/debug=0,/disabled=0
/dn= xxx.xx.xxx.xx:43124,/cn=1,/polldelay=0,/to=2,/rci=30,/writedelay=0,/debug=0,/disabled=0
 
Note: This was previously Enhancement 121980.

    We have the same case. As workaround we configured several instances of PI ModBus interface. But this seriously increased amount of mouseclicks to configure that.

    Hi Chris, do you know approximately when we can expect the release that would include this improvement?
