Most industrial electronic devices using Modbus protocol for data communication.
No exception for the Oil and Gas Industry, the flow meter device like Emerson FloBoss, Omni Flow Computer, Actaris EVC, or Schneider ScadaPack also using Modbus Protocol.
Then, How if we want the sensor data contained in these tools can be shown also in the ThingSpeak ?
The answer is we need an gateway application that serves to read sensor data using the Modbus protocol and then send them to ThingSpeak by using the API.
For a real example of this application, I used to read real-time data from the sensors like Temperature, Pressure, and Flow Gas used for Bontang City Gas at Kalimantan Timur, Indonesia and then send it to ThingSpeak.
So.. Now we can monitoring via web at ThingSpeak Channel https://thingspeak.com/channels/41318
If you have a Modbus Device and want send it data to ThingSpeak, you can download the application here https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3351822/HINET_IOT_GATEWAY.rar
