    Hi, I’m trying to establish communication with an Applikon bioreactor controller [ez-Control] which is normally operated with proprietary software called BioXpert. We do not have a usable copy of BioXpert. Supposedly the controller will interface with non-proprietary SCADA systems (via OPC).

    The bioreactor controller is in the same room with me and connected to my workstation by wired Ethernet. I can ping the controller, open Telnet to it, and watch packets on Wireshark.

    But how do I send commands or view data? Do I need drivers? Do I need Matrikon’s Applikon OPC server?

    Are there other people using RapidSCADA to run bioreactors?

    Hi,

    What communication protocols are supported by the controller?
    If you try using OPC, these manuals can help:
