OPC-UA Server Adds Modbus

A Modbus TCP/IP driver has been added to Ignition OPC-UA, a cross-platform OPC-UA server.

{mosimage} The new driver allows Ignition OPC-UA to connect to a broad variety of devices, such as solar cells, lights, generators, flowmeters, and even bar code scanners and refrigeration skids. Ignition OPC-UA is offered free as a stand-alone server, and is also included as a module within Ignition software. Ignition is a robust platform for creating Web-launched HMI, SCADA and MES systems that can run on Windows, Linux, OS X and more. With full support for OPC-UA and classic OPC, and now Modbus, Ignition can be adapted to connect to virtually any industrial device, says the vendor. The Modbus driver allows users to quickly and easily access device data and make Modbus data available through Ignition OPC-UA to any third party client and to the rest of Ignition in order to log history, display status, create control screens and more. The Modbus driver is compatible with native Modbus TCP/IP devices, as well as Modbus RTU devices through the use of a fieldbus gateway.
