Binary-coded decimal (BCD) is a class of binary encodings of decimal numbers where each decimal digit is represented by a fixed number of bits, usually four or eight. Some devices that support Modbus protocol store data in BCD format, In Ignition, special designators convert data from BCD format to decimal when reading from the device and from decimal to BCD when writing back to the device.
