New OPC Server & Visual Basic/C tools for Ethernet & Modbus I/O
We have introduced several new software support packages to simplify application development. Please read on to learn more.
New OPC Server for Acromag Ethernet I/O
To help you quickly integrate our BusWorks and EtherStax Modbus/TCP I/O modules into your control system, Acromag now offers a low-cost OPC DA Server. This software package delivers high-speed connectivity to all Acromag Modbus TCP/IP slave devices via Ethernet and for just $199. A free 30-day evaluation version is available.
The ACMBTCP Modbus/TCP Master OPC DA Server is exclusively for use with Acromag I/O. This software can be used as a data server to any HMI or SCADA package that is OPC compliant or custom-built Visual Basic/C++ applications. It is compatible with National Instruments LabView, Wonderware InTouch, Rockwell RSView, CitectSCADA, and others.
New ActiveX and .NET Support for Modbus TCP and RTU I/O Modules
If you are developing in a Visual Basic or C++ environment, Acromag now offers ActiveX and .NET controls to help you communicate with our Ethernet and Modbus I/O modules. These software tools start at just $225. Free evaluation versions are available.
Acromag's AMRN/AMRX (for Modbus/RTU) and AMTN/AMTX (for Modbus/TCP) controls packages provide a fast, easy way to communicate with any Modbus slave devices (not just Acromag I/O) connected to your PC's serial or network ports. Within minutes, your Visual Basic, Visual C, .NET, Excel, or other compatible applications will be talking Modbus protocol.
