As the wave of IIoT strikes the industry and the value of information gradually gains attention, retrofitting existing systems for IIoT enablement is a must. While cMT Series Gateway: cMT-G01/G02 has been helping a great number of users overcome obstacles related to connecting miscellaneous devices to IIoT, certain reality restrictions, such as insufficient budget, aged equipment, discontinued modules, lost equipment details, or unchangeable software / hardware…,etc, can make it impossible to adopt cMT-G01/G02 as an IIoT solution. To address this issue, We have released new Gateway models: cMT-G03/G04, which can painlessly connect existing devices to IIoT without the need for modifying system architecture, thus eliminating the trouble of updating systems, and greatly reducing possible cost incurred by repeated investment.
The cMT-G03 is equipped with two serial ports (COM) and one Ethernet port (LAN/WAN), the cMT-G03 can function as a serial bridge. Simply by connecting COM1:IN with an upper layer device (HMI/SCADA), and COM2:OUT with the existing device (PLC), cMT-G03 bridges the upper layer-to-device connection while being completely transparent to the system and ensures that existing operation is not affected. This is done without the need for an additional serial port on the device.
