Connectivity and Integration
Rapid SCADA includes drivers which provide communication with a wide range of devices using the most common communication standards, as well as specialized manufacturer’s protocols. New drivers can be implemented by the developers of Rapid SCADA or by third party developers. The architecture of the software allows to create additional modules that implement data exchange with any external system or database.
Supported Communication Standards
Using standard communication protocols supported by Rapid SCADA, you can connect a huge number of devices made by different manufacturers.
|Simple and robust, Modbus has since become a de facto standard communication protocol, and it is now a commonly available means of connecting industrial electronic devices.|
|The standard specifies the communication of real-time plant data between control devices from different manufacturers.|
|SNMP is an Internet-standard protocol for collecting and organizing information about managed devices on IP networks and for modifying that information to change device behavior. Devices that typically support SNMP include routers, switches, servers, workstations, printers, modem racks and more.|
|SMTP||Sending email notifications||SMTP is an Internet standard for email transmission.|
|AT command set||Sending and receiving text messages||AT command set (Hayes command set) consists of a series of short text strings which combine together to produce complete commands for operations such as dialing, hanging up, and changing the parameters of the connection. The vast majority of dialup modems use AT command set in numerous variations.|
|MQTT||This is a lightweight messaging protocol for use on top of the TCP/IP protocol. It is designed for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required or the network bandwidth is limited. Download a driver developed by the community.|
|M-Bus||M-Bus was designed for network and remote meter reading. Download a driver developed by our user.|
The following devices that use non-standard communication protocols are also supported by Rapid SCADA.
|GS828-HV, GS828-NHV, NS828-HV||3gtrack||GPRS/Ethernet data loggers|
Rapid SCADA allows real-time data export to Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL and MySQL databases using native drivers and to any other databases using OLE DB.
