The Tratec Norcon Modbus Server provides an open interface between Milestone XProtect VMS, using the proprietary Milestone Integration Platform (MIP) and an existing or new SCADA or PLC system. Interface to the universally standardized Modbus protocol is supported by the vast majority of OPC servers, SCADA and PLC systems available, enabling low cost and hassle free integration of Milestone XProtect VMS into your automation systems.

Using the Modbus Server provides full flexibility in selecting automation systems, as it supports both new and pre-existing installations.

The Modbus Server provides runtime feedback of camera statuses and alarms, allowing for trigging pre-defined events and operation of individual cameras – all configured and maintained in Milestone XProtect VMS.

The Modbus Server is provided as a single installer file for Windows, and will run on both 32 and 64 bit operating systems. It is easy to configure and setup the Modbus Server using the provided user interface application.

Key Features

  • Easy to integrate Milestone XProtect VMS into PLC software or SCADA software, either directly or via an OPC server.

  • Data from Milestone XProtect VMS is made available on the universally available Modbus protocol, opening up to a wide range of possible uses.

  • Runtime feedback of Milestone XProtect VMS information on any Modbus capable device opens up for even more flexibility. Operator control and making information available in most automation systems is also made possible.
