New product announcement – cMT-g02 IIoT Gateway

Integrating miscellaneous factory automation equipment is rarely an easy task since often each machine uses a different controller. When integrating with other IT systems, the variety of protocols often presents a challenge. In 1995, the OPC standard was released to address this issue, in 2006, OPC UA (Unified Architecture) made it possible to get the same information from machines regardless of operating system. The cMT-G02 communication gateway is not only equipped with an Ethernet port, but also supports WiFi which enables connectivity where conventional network wiring provision is not practical. With built-in de-facto IIoT protocols, MQTT & OPC UA, the Continue reading New product announcement – cMT-g02 IIoT Gateway
