What exactly are you working with?

Modbus is generally Schneider/Modicon, but there have been so many different models since that came out it's not much to go on.

thank you
we got ABB AC500_PM554
also we got Vacon inverters ....

i did some research and found

http://peakhmi.com/

that is what we sort of need ... however this one is not economical for us due to we got hundreds of units and for each we need this HMI at the tablet ....

may be there is some more economical solution ?

The Red Lion HMI has many communication protocols.  You can configure standard HMI screens to many types of PLCs using various protocols including Modbus.  The HMI screens can propagate to a built in Web server and may be accessed with any tablet or mobile phone.

There are other ways of propagating info like this, but this would have to be the cheapest method I have used.
