IIoT controller for the control cabinet

September 2023 Industrial Computer Hardware

The IIoT controller is a powerful, communicative, and flexible PLC solution in machine and plant digitalisation. It is powerful because at ambient temperatures of up to 55°C, the 1,3 GHz quad-core processor works at high-performance level. It is communicative, because it has a true language and translation talent with its various protocols, regardless of whether it is a matter of connections to the IT world or the integration of automation technology I/O data. In addition, even a Plug & Work connection of IO-Link devices is possible – including IODD interpretation. It is flexible, because the IIoT controller is freely programmable via CODESYS V3.5.

If you would like to manage the device remotely it is not a problem. The CODESYS automation server enables remote debugging and remote web visualisation. The IIoT controller allows for transmission of the recorded and prepared data to the most common cloud platforms such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and AnyViz. Furthermore, the IIoT controller speaks the common standard digitisation languages such as OPC UA and MQTT. Whenever data is to be recorded and processed in real-time, I/Os can be read and controlled by using Industrial Ethernet protocols such as Profinet, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP.
