Businesses build standardized processes to guarantee that personnel do not miss workflow steps, forget details, repeat jobs unnecessarily, or quit tasks before completion. These business processes ensure that a company’s operations are compliant and consistent. For the last thirty years, Modbus protocols have enabled companies to implement business process automation with ease and effectiveness, resulting in a number of benefits.

Why BPA is Easy to Implement
Originally published by Modicon in 1979 for use with programmable logic controllers, Modbus is a royalty-free product that has become the de facto standard communication protocol used to connect industrial electronic devices in business communications and automation systems. Simple to understand and to use, the protocol uses a Modbus slave to receive data from a master device. The Modbus display was developed to connect up to ten devices to a data logger, saving the measurement data on internal memory and integrating it into the local network. This technology has been integrated into virtually every product category in the last thirty years, effectively increasing the level of business process automation in companies across the globe.
The simplicity of existing BPA technology makes business automation easy to implement in virtually any product category. With all the benefits that accompany business automation, there is no reason not to embrace it.
