Using a computer to monitor remote devices is often used in factory automation. Here we use the Serial Device Server, PLC, configuration software. The PLC is responsible for remote data acquisition and control, Serial Device Server for remote data communication and configuration software to integrate software interface.
Here introduces the application of ZLAN series serial device server in factory automation with the example of remote monitoring of boiler.
Use ZLVircom to create a virtual serial port, and then bind it to the found serial device server.
When used, the virtual serial port can be opened by the 3d force control software, which can be used as the normal serial port.
