Good day All,
I am new to ignition. I am actually a Network Admin.
When I started working for this company, they had no automation in “the plant”.
We have since installed ignition, and have managed to get some equipment online, with monitoring and control.
I really like this system, and having a great time learning it.
Unfortunately, I have hit a roadblock.
I would like to add monitoring of our network switches (Cisco IE4000’s) as the support Modbus TCP.
I cannot seem to get Ignition to read the modbus registers, and don’t know where I am going wrong.
I have enabled Modbus TCP on the switch with the default port of 502.
I can add the device in ignition, and it shows connected on both ends. But cannot figure out the Modbus registers, as Cisco documents them in HEX.
Has anyone done this before? Or have any suggestions?
This is a link to the Modbus register map from Cisco <A HREF=“https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/cisco_ie4000/software/modbus/swmodreg_ie4k.html”
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am sure its something stupid I am overlooking.
