I wonder there is any software that can convert MODBUS RTU messages to ASCII. The vendor of measurement equipment has informed in order to get the device information the following command shall be exected.

FC43 Sub 14, Read Device Identification

The answer as expected is in binary.

Is there anyway to convert this binary output to ASCII? and if yes, how to interpret the message?

Many thanks.
For custom modbus function codes and RTU/ASCII functions there is a nice (commercial) library available that is very flexible to such thinks.

Google for ADONTEC.com or SuperCom Modbus Library.
