Cara koneksi ke PLC Panasonic dari Citect SCADA

Jadi, awalnya ini pertama saya ketemu sama PLC murmer yang tidak terlalu common, dan saya juga tertarik untuk coba komunikasi ngambil data dari PLC ini. di sisi PLC cukup di setting di Basic Communication Information dan kemudian bisa assign IP address disini. yang kedua di User Connection information setting 1…16 yang artinya ada 16 jenis koneksi yang bisa dilakukan ke PLC ini dengan port dan setting yang berbeda. kita cukup atur satu saja.

pertama kita set dulu IP nya di Basic Communication Information seperti gambar berikut:

Kemudian masuk ke setting User connection information setting 1 dan setting seperti ini atau sesuai kebutuhan. terutama di PORT dan communication Type yaitu menggunakan UDP atau TCP. (kita set menggunakan UDP)

Cara Reset password / Application Unity Pro Modicon M340

Unity Pro atau Control Expert ada 2 Jenis proteksi yaitu:

  1. Program Logic (section) protection
  2. Project / Application & Controller protection

Modbus-IoT (Modbus over MQTT)

Modbus?? old school protocol (more than 40th years).

when Modbus created, it was created for Serial communication via RS485. after year by year, technology was changing and ethernet / TCP widely used in PLC and industrial control system, then Modbus move their medium to Ethernet and wrap their message in TCP (encapsulated) over ethernet.

Now, when everything going to the cloud or  RTU/PLC are not in the same place with SCADA and it only have internet connection, it will be hard and expensive for Modbus to keep exist in Internet area. because we need at least public IP for each device, or creating VPN.

but with MQTT the message can be send over the broker (on the cloud), so it will be exiting if modbus can be sent through MQTT.

if you’ve heard about Node-red this is cool IoT tools/platform built in NodeJS.

I’m using Node-red to make it’s encapsulation, and Modscan as Modbus Master (or SCADA), and Modsim as Modbus Slave (or  PLC)
