SCADA, Modbus TCP, and Raspberry Pi

SCADA and Raspberry Pi Application, for SCADA use Free SCADA IGSS and Raspberry Pi use Raspberry Pi 2.
This application use MODBUS TCP/IP Communication between SCADA and Raspberry Pi.
I use wireless router for connection between Computer/SCADA and raspberry pi. In Raspberry Pi using Ethernet port connect to LAN port on a router, and computer connect to the router via WIFI/wireless.

SCADA, Modbus TCP, and Raspberry Pi Application

Video about SCADA and Raspberry Pi 2

What is needed for this application?
1. Raspberry Pi 2
2. Wireless Router with LAN ports
3. Internet connection for software installation on a Raspberry Pi
4. Ethernet cable with RJ45 connector for connection between raspberry pi and router
5. Power Supply 5V with Micro USB for raspberry pi power
6. Micro SD Card for raspbian OS
7. Buzzer 5V
8. LED
9. Switch
10.Resistor 10K and 150

Download Project File:
1. Free SCADA Software:
2. SCADA file project, click here
3. Raspberry Pi file project, click here

Software installation on a Raspberry Pi:
Copy Paste All Project file to folder /home/pi on Raspberry Pi 2

Raspberry Pi connect to Internet.
In LXTerminal:
sudo apt-get install python-pymodbus python-twisted-conch

In LXTerminal
type sudo crontab -e
Scroll to bottom and add:
@reboot python /home/pi/
Ctrl+X to exit, Y to save followed by enter twice

In LXTerminal
sudo reboot

Video about SCADA and Raspberry Pi Setup:

SCADA Configuration:
1. Go to System Configuration - MODBUS/TCP driver - 7TMODTCP - Node 0 - Node Properties
2. In Node Properties - set Remote IP Address:
my raspberry pi has the IP address and then remote IP Address is set to

Python Code:
from pymodbus.server.async import StartTcpServer
from pymodbus.datastore import ModbusSequentialDataBlock
from pymodbus.datastore import ModbusSlaveContext, ModbusServerContext
from twisted.internet.task import LoopingCall
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO

GPIO.setup(SW, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down=GPIO.PUD_UP)

store = ModbusSlaveContext(
    di = ModbusSequentialDataBlock(0, [0]*100),
    co = ModbusSequentialDataBlock(0, [0]*100),
    hr = ModbusSequentialDataBlock(0, [0]*100),
    ir = ModbusSequentialDataBlock(0, [0]*100))
context = ModbusServerContext(slaves=store, single=True)

def updating_writer(a):
    context  = a[0]
    register = 3
    slave_id = 0
    address  = 0
    values = [1]
    if GPIO.input(SW):values = [0]  
    print values

def read_context(a):
     context  = a[0]
     register = 3
     slave_id = 0
     address  = 10
     value = context[slave_id].getValues(register,address,10)
     if value[0]==0:GPIO.output(LED, GPIO.LOW)
     if value[0]==1:GPIO.output(LED, GPIO.HIGH)
     if value[1]==0:GPIO.output(BZ, GPIO.LOW)
     if value[1]==1:GPIO.output(BZ, GPIO.HIGH)
     print value[0]
     print value[1]

read = LoopingCall(f=read_context, a=(context,))

write = LoopingCall(f=updating_writer, a=(context,))


For Two Raspberry Pi

System Configuration Setting of SCADA Software:

Remote IP Address for Raspberry Pi Number 1 is
Raspberry Pi Number 1 with node0

Remote IP Address for Raspberry Pi Number 2 is
Raspberry Pi Number 1 with node1

Definition Setting of SCADA Software:

Edit Mapping with Node 0 for Raspberry Pi Number 1
Raspberry Pi Number 1 node

Edit Mapping with Node 1 for Raspberry Pi Number 2
Raspberry Pi Number 2 node
