We want to monitor and give command from an XBTGTW7354 to other 3rd party SCADA system on ModbusTCP, what are the possible ways to do this communication.

To monitor and give command from an XBTGTW to other SCADA system, you can use two ways :

>> To use web client to view & control the HMI screens & data on to the SCADA system using the web gate active x or you can open an internet explorer and view this active x. To enable this you enable the Web Gate option in the VJD target properties.

Note : But using this way you can view & control only HMI data on other system / scada using internet explorer also or by inserting the Web gate Active X. 

>> The other way preferable way is to configure the HMI as Modbus TCP/IP Slave and then move variable tags by script from main PLC equipment to the SCADA equipment . In this case your SCADA will acts as Modbus TCP/IP Master.
