SCADADroid® Integration with Allen-Bradley® MicroLogix™ 800 Series

Objective

By assigning the MicroLogix™ 800 series PLCs a Modbus client, the SCADADroid® alarm dialer can read messages easily using the Modbus® TCP/IP protocol.

Solution

Programming the MicroLogix™ 800 series PLCs as a Modbus® TCP client within Connected Components Workbench (CCW)™. Refer to Rockwell Automation® website for sample programming code.

Alternate Solution: Another option is to use the connected HMI/OIT as a Modbus client and use the SCADADroid® to poll data from the HMI/OIT

Hardware requirements

MicroLogix™ 800 series PLCs with an Ethernet port and a SCADADroid® alarm callout unit. Refer to Rockwell Automation® website for a complete list of compatible PLCs.

 

Programming

Refer to Rockwell Automation® website for sample programming code.
