Do you have older operational equipment (in the field or on the floor) that has issues interfacing with modern devices and platforms? There are common challenges when trying to overcome the communication limitations of your old Modbus devices, Allen Bradley™ PLCs, Siemens™ drives, switchgear, or power monitoring equipment.
