AKCP Inc., has released a new innovative feature for it's embedded Linux securityProbe bridging the gap between SCADA's physical and logical formats and SNMP.
The securityProbe adds a Modbus to SNMP gateway which can be easily integrated in any SCADA system. Using the recently introduced virtual sensor port feature, the securityProbe supports Modbus RTU, Modbus over TCP/IP. Any virtual sensor can be combined with AKCP's wide choice of notifications like: SNMP traps, e-mail, SMS, MMS, windows alerts, voice calls, Skype calls, etc. In addition the securityProbe can control relays based on collected sensor values from a large number of physical sensors or up to 60 dry contacts. All Modbus configuration can be done through the easy to use embedded web interface of the securityProbe.
With this new feature AKCP has created a unique SCADA management system independent of the bus protocol used. This enables distributed control engineers to easily link up industrial network devices with existing LAN infrastructure and SNMP alerts.
The Modbus to SNMP gateway expands on the wide range of Modbus features such as the securityProbe's ability to act as a RS485 master device polling one or more slave devices or as a slave allowing other Modbus devices to read sensor data.
Additional fieldbus protocol support for Profibus, LonWorks, etc. are available on request with very short implementation times, using AKCP custom engineering services
AKCP Inc., established in 1981, is the world's oldest and largest manufacturer of SNMP based environmental and security monitoring solutions. Over 35,000 installations use AKCP for disaster prevention and infrastructure security.
