VBASE is compatible with more than 200 different bus and remote systems. These also include standards that can be used across manufacturers and systems. For the complete list of compatible systems, see the VBASE Online documentation. If VBASE does not yet support the system you are using, we can offer you the development of a driver. Just contact us!

ISO on TCP

The ISO on TCP protocol is mainly used for coupling with Siemens SIMATIC S7 and compatible Ethernet controllers.

Examples of tested controllers and modules:

  • Siemens SIMATIC S7-200
  • Siemens SIMATIC S7 CP343-1 TCP
  • Siemens SIMATIC S7 CP443-1
  • Siemens LOGO!
  • compatible systems e.g. VIPA Speed 7

Other systems that use the ISO on TCP protocol should also be easily connectable.

Modbus

The Modbus communication protocol is based on a master / slave or client / server architecture. It was developed as early as 1979 and has since developed into a de-facto standard for industrial communication because it is an open protocol. Modbus distinguishes between versions for Ethernet and the serial interface.

VBASE supports the Modbus modes:

  • Modbus TCP
  • Modbus RTU

OPC (Client)

The OPC communication module is used for coupling and for data exchange with OPC servers. OPC (OLE for Process Control) is a client / server software interface that supports the data exchange of different systems using a standardized protocol. An OPC server is offered for many control systems. VBASE is compatible with the most common OPC servers from version 2 or later.

KNX

KNX is a important fieldbus from the building automation for the control of lighting, heating, blinds, ventilation and safety engineering across the entire network. VBASE supports the KNX-IP protocol and communicates with the KNX components via a KNX-IP router.

More compatible systems:

  • Siemens SIMATIC
  • WAGO I/O-System
  • Mitsubishi MELSEC
  • Beckhoff TwinCAT ADS
  • VIPA
  • Saia
  • Allen-Bradley
  • Panasonic / Matsushita SPS-Systeme
  • M-Bus
  • digitalstrom
  • 200 additional compatible remote systems

See the VBASE Online documentation for the full set-up of VBASE-supported systems. If the system you are using is not listed, please contact us. Together we will find a solution!
