Hi all sorry if this questions been asked before but couldn't find a search function on this  forum

My question is has anyone tried Raspberry Pi with the open PLC runtime with igss SCADA

It should work as long as igss can talk Modbus/TCP (which I think it does)

thanks for the reply, IGSS has a Modbus driver (No64) I downloaded the free50 licence and will give it a go
Another question, can the OpenPLC firmware work on the raspberry pi zero, then use an Arduino as a slave (for more I/O)

Yes, the runtime will work on a Pi zero. To add an Arduino you will have to use a micro-usb to USB adapter.

Thanks again
My plan to set up a basic home automation system using Pi zero WH and IGSS (free50 licence)
I think I will enough I/O on the Pi zero to do want I need. the Pi zero will run as a PLC remotely and report to the scada to control and monitor/alarm 

that's the plan - Andrew

Andrew you can also use ScadaBR, a free and open source SCADA tool instead of IGSS. You can download a ready to use ScadaBR VM on the OpenPLC project website

Hi I tried SCADABGR but there seems to be a problem with Windows 10 home something to do with the group policies that's why I decided to use igss but if you have any clues on how to get SCADABR to work it would be most appreciated thank you

Did you try the VM package from OpenPLC project website? It should run anywhere.

Yes VM 6.0 with ScadaBR.ova
The system just hangs but before a Debian screen pops up
I have attached some screen shots

That happens because you don’t have virtualization extensions (VT-x) enabled on your computer bios. You will have to enable that to run virtual machines. Just google how to enable it on your specific computer model

Thanks for the tip, unfortunately, my laptop Lenovo E520 only supports VT-d in BIOS
I also tried ScadaBR in VMware without luck, I looked on Lenovo website for BIOS update

On some bios VT-x is also called Intel Virtualization. If your computer has support for VT-d it definitely also supports VT-x, it probably just appears with a different name.
