There are two ways to interface a CR1000 to a SCADA system.
- Make a hardware link via RS232 using the Modbus protocol to interface to HMI (Human Machine Interface) of the SCADA system.
- Make a software Link using PC-OPC from Campbell. SCADA system has to be compatible with OPC (Ole for Processing Control). Use Loggernet and prefered telemetry option. Loggernet acts as server, with data in Cache. PC-OPC resides on PC and acts a client. PC-OPC goes to server cache, retreives data, then makes it available to HMI, essentiall providing a software ‘bridge’ to HMI.
