EtherNet/IP: The Everyman’s Guide to EtherNet/IP
EtherNet/IP came roaring into the 21st century on the backs of DeviceNet and ControlNet, claiming world domination (almost) as the most widely used protocol in manufacturing. While it’s pervasive, EtherNet/IP isn’t necessarily standard knowledge to everyone on the factory floor.
Modbus: The Everyman’s Guide to Modbus
In this short and entertaining book, Rinaldi describes the birth and history of Modbus technology and the reasons why it has flourished the way it has.

OPC UA – Unified Architecture: The Everyman’s Guide to OPC UA
OPC UA, which I will refer to as UA throughout this book, is the next generation of OPC technology. UA is a more secure, open, reliable mechanism for transferring information between Servers and Clients. It provides more open transports, better security and a more complete information model than OPC which I will refer to as OPC Classic.
