Modbus interface to SCADA
The Potter Modbus Link is TCP/IP based software that enables up to 10 compatible Potter fire panels to report panel and point status information to Modbus SCADA systems in commercial buildings, campuses, and industrial facilities. This supplementary slave device interface allows third party Modbus masters (clients) to display and respond to fire system activity. Life safety functions are retained in the fire alarm control panels. The Modbus Link converts native Potter panel protocol into Modbus. All the Potter and Modbus communications utilize an Ethernet-TCP/IP network. The Modbus Link is unique in that it is a licensed software solution that will run as a Windows® service on a site provided computer.
