Weintek has integrated CODESYS and IIoT Gateway into the cMT-CTRL01 – IIoT Programmable Logic Controller. The new model with built-in CODESYS, in addition to working with all iR modules, features IIoT Gateway protocol translation and EasyAccess remote access service, all of which justify its prime role in a smart automation system.
With built-in Gateway, cMT-CTRL01 supports IIoT protocol standards: OPC UA and MQTT. Data from both CODESYS and the connected PLC can be uploaded to an IIoT datacenter using OPC UA or MQTT. The cMT-CTRL01 also has built-in Modbus TCP/IP Gateway, and supports the protocols used by over 300 major brands of PLCs, making it suitable for a wide array of applications. Programmers can use the built-in 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.
IIoT Gateway supports data sampling and event log functions and associated historical data can be stored into an SD card or synchronized to SQL database. cMT-CTRL01 is equipped with dual Ethernet ports that can be freely assigned. Either one Ethernet port for CODESYS and the other one for IIoT Gateway or both Ethernet ports for IIoT Gateway, whereby one port connects to the host computer or internet, and the other one connects to an onsite Ethernet-based PLC.
