To integrate Modbus devices into Security Center, you must install the Modbus plugin on a Security Center server and on all client workstations.

Before you begin

Ensure the following:
  • Ports 5671 and 5672 are free, as they are required by Rabbit MQ.
  • You have read the release notes.
  • A compatible version of Security Center is installed.
  • Your Security Center license has a valid certificate for the Modbus plugin.

What you should know

  • Although it is possible to host the plugin role on any server, it is a best practice to host that role on a dedicated expansion server for best system performance.
  • For your operators to have access to the features added by this plugin, you must install this plugin on all Security Center client workstations.

Procedure

  1. Open the GTAP Product Download page.
  2. From the Download Finder list, select your version of Security Center.
  3. Search for your package by name and download it.
  4. Click the downloaded .exe file to unzip it.
    By default, the file is unzipped to C:\Genetec.
  5. Close Security Desk and Config Tool.
  6. Open the extracted folder, right-click the setup.exe file, and click Run as administrator.
  7. Follow the installation instructions.
  8. On the Installation Wizard Completed page, click Finish.
    IMPORTANT: The Restart Genetecâ„¢ Server option is selected by default. You can clear this option if you do not want to restart the Genetecâ„¢ Server immediately. However, you must restart the Genetecâ„¢ Server to complete the installation.
