Modbus ethernet interface general question

Hello Folks:

I'm researching getting data into the PI archive from a device that has a Modbus to ethernet converter, I don't know exactly what the make/model of the modbus to ethernet converter but is off the shelf.

The device is not a PLC.

From skimming the guide: PI Interface for Modbus Ethernet PLC 4.2

It seems that the location settings in the archive are setup according to how floating point values are represented in the PLC

This device is a measuring device that can output in analog 4-20mA and modbus, that is why I'm thinking I can use the PI modbus interface.

Is it possible to set it up for non-PLCs?
