As IIoT brings in the wave of Industrial 4.0 revolution, retrofitting legacy factory with smart capabilities has become trend of future manufacturing. In addition to high performance, the next generation PLC should also have powerful peripheral connectivity to fulfill IIoT demands. Responding to this trend, we have integrated CODESYS and IIoT Gateway and released the IIoT Programmable Logic Controller – cMT-CTRL01.
In compliance with IEC 61131-3 Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) standard, cMT-CTRL01’s built-in CODESYS supports multiple languages such as FBD/LD/IL/ST/SFC/CFC. Also, cMT-CTRL01 supports IIoT protocol standards: OPC UA and MQTT with which data from the connected devices can be uploaded to IIoT datacenter. Additionally, users can, with a license, activate EasyAccess 2.0 to update the device’s CODESYS project and monitor its operation status, thus reducing maintenance costs. With EasyAccess 2.0 push notification, users receive immediate notification about the operation errors on their portable devices for quick troubleshooting.
