Vijeo Citect has a serial driver for MicroXL controllers, so this can be used to access data on an RL bus. RL Bus refers to the MicroXL DCS bus.Vijeo Citect`s YOK_UXLS driver supports SERIAL communication with the Yokogawa Micro XL unit. The maximum request length for the YOK_UXLS protocol is 224 bits.
The YOK_UXLS Driver supports SERIAL communication to the Micro Xl (µXL) communication control center, manufactured by Yokogawa Electric Corporation.
