Why not use ethernet?

I give support to Unitronics OPLC's and Cognex Vision Systems at Isotron in the Netherlands, and made already communication with it together.

I always used the ethernet, and not the serial.

But you can go with Modbus, or native mode, depending on the task you will do.

Attached 2 examples, one for Modbus and one for native mode.

If you need more, let me know.

As a starting point, you could take a look at the FB Protocol example projects.

Choose 'Examples...' from the Help menu in Visilogic and then drill down to the directory 'Version 900\Project examples\Communications\FB Protocol'.
