Modbus is an industry standard... If a device has a PLC then it will probably have a Modbus interface.. You can query devices via Modbus and then read / write to specific registers... This way you can control the device even if you only have a basic knowledge of the system....

Canbus is slowly taking over as it has better distance coverage and device properties...

I have tried Modbus and Canbus…. I think Modbus is out of date and too constrictive..

This device is a graphical "upfront" display... All the utilities it is reading will have to have "Smart" sensors attached to them.. Ie.. one sensor to monitor each utility.. Then they connect to the device then this information is stored on a cloud.. You will be able to access this data via computer and mobile phone etc.. The data will be as described in the article...

if two machines have different company drives then in that case how it works?
Remember the article describes "compatible devices" so I don't expect any device to work... There will be limitations...
