There are two ways to connect CIUMon and RoviSys Turbo:
- RoviSys Turbo virtual ports are easy to set up and provide high data rates. If RoviSys Turbo and CIUMon are on different computers, they can still be connected with RoviSys Turbo virtual ports through the network. RoviSys Turbo virtual ports require RoviSys Turbo 7.2 or newer and CIUMon 10.4 or newer.
- Serial ports are generally harder to set up and slower. Some system managers may choose to use serial ports if RoviSys Turbo and CIUMon are on different computers, in order to keep OPC data off the network. Serial ports can also be used with older versions of RoviSys Turbo and CIUMon.
