I was looking for this kind of community since I was turning myself addiction to arduino project. I am a Control Engineer in profession and I used to program PLC a lot. This community will be a great find for me. Thanks.

Anyway, I am currently creating a MQQT based IOT application for arduino and I think it will be the most secure protocol we have for automation so far because of the SSL capability. Typical control system used modbus but it can't be used for application higher than L3 network because of the luck of encryption. I will start this thread for anyone who are interested to develop a MQQT function block with openPLC as the core. 

Cheers.

Welcome harvyxtr! The MQTT "equivalent" for automation is OPC-UA. It is based on the more traditional SCADA setup and also supports encryption, digital certificates and all the security belts and whistles. If you want to join the devs and add OPC-UA or MQTT to OpenPLC, it will be of great help.

Hi Thiago, thank you sir. I just have downloaded all the application needed and I was on the impression that I can choose the protocol that I want from the open plc development tools which we usually have in normal PLC development but unfortunately I cant. It will be a great tools too as addition for your so amazing tool. I will be looking at your source though and hoping I can add MQQT in it. For OPC-UA, we need a windows host for that and they are not friendly for open source ÃƒÆ’°Å¸ËœÂÃ°Å¸ËœÂ.

You can choose the protocol you want from the settings page once OpenPLC Runtime is running. By default all protocols are enabled
