“The IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) controller is a powerful, communicative and flexible PLC solution in machine and plant digitalisation,” says ifm South Africa.
Powerful, because at ambient temperatures of up to 55°C, the 1.3GHz quad-core processor works at high performance level. Communicative, because it is 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. Flexible, as the IIoT controller is freely programmable via CODESYS V3.5.
Furthermore, the CODESYS Automation Server enables remote debugging and remote web visualisation.
Connection to different clouds
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. The IIoT controller also speaks the common standard digitisation languages such as OPC UA and MQTT. Whenever data is to be recorded and processed in real-time, I/O’s can be read and controlled by using Industrial Ethernet protocols such as Profinet, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP.
