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
Modbus has found its way into thousands of applications and hundreds of thousands of devices. Even in this age of the Internet, Cloud data storage and the Internet of Things (IoT), Modbus will continue to be relevant for many years to come because of its utter simplicity.

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. Besides the deep dive into Modbus technology, the book describes everything else you need to know about Modbus; including the Modbus Organization, certification, router technology, interfacing Modbus to IoT protocols like OPC UA and, most of all, why it will live forever.

OPC UA – Unified Architecture: The Everyman’s Guide to OPC UA
“What is OPC UA?” is a very simple question. The answer, when you are discussing a complex technology architecture like OPC UA isn’t as simple.

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. UA provides a very flexible and adaptable mechanism for moving data between Enterprise type systems and the kinds of controls, monitoring devices and sensors that interact with real-world data.
