Industrial Communication Protocols

softgate offers hardware and software solutions for integration into an already existing automation and process environment. Here we use the most common communication protocols.

Industrial communication protocols are responsible for communication between machines and with external devices. This allows access to the machine sensors and controls via the PLC using industrial communication protocols.

We will be happy to advise you on the choice of suitable communication devices.

Sample Topology:

SOMA supports especially the following communication protocols:

  • OPC UA (Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture)
  • MT-Connect
  • CANopen
  • DeviceNet
  • Ethernet/IP (Ethernet Industrial Protocol)
  • EtherCAT
  • Profibus (Process Field Bus)
  • ProfiNET
  • Modbus-RTU
  • Modbus-TCP
