by Alex Yang

This is one of the best training courses that I've had. Even though I have had worked with BACNet and Modbus protocols a lot, you answered some of the questions that I always had in my head. ?Definitely enriched my knowledge about standards, rules and configuration of the protocols that we use now on our industry.
