VTScada Connectivity Webinar Series

What do you want to connect to your SCADA?

In this tightly-focused series of webinars, our engineers will show you how to connect VTScada to your favorite monitoring and control devices using built-in direct drivers.

Episode One:  Connecting VTScada to Modbus Compliant PLCs

Blair Sooley (Houston, TX, Office) and Chris Little (Bedford, NS, Office)

In the first of a series of VTScada I/O driver tutorials, we will discuss the variants of the Modbus protocol, common use cases, and how it differs from other communication protocols. We will outline hardware and software requirements for VTScada Modbus integration and demonstrate step-by-step configuration of a Modbus comm link. There will be plenty of time at the end to answer questions.
