VFD Security Risk

Vendors include this setting intentionally in the device’s registry so operators will always know the top speed-limit for motors. But the devices reveal this critical speed to anyone who queries them. They use the Modbus protocol to communicate, and a hacker can send a simple query to the drive’s control board to obtain this critical information then use it against the device.
