Experion comes with an array of native SCADA interfaces and is, in fact, an excellent standalone SCADA system. In addition, users can interface numerous MatrikonOPC drivers with Experion. Using these SCADA interfaces, Experion enables a direct connection between third-party system, the Experion server and Human Machine Infrastructure (HMI) without the need to use a DCS controller as a mailbox.
If users require data from third-party systems in their C200 or C300 controllers, this can be easily achieved through the communications interfaces provided with these controllers, including Modbus, Modbus TCP, Profibus and DeviceNet. Users can benefit from both the controller connections and the server connections to have the ultimate flexible solution.
