New EasyBuilder Pro Feature for cMT Series: MQTT JSON Advanced Format Setting

JSON Advanced setting has been added to the MQTT Topic Publisher in EasyBuilder Pro. Beside’s being compatible with the existing simple JSON format, this function allows users to define JSON format with more flexible structure tailored to the cloud device they use. With this function, data transferred to the cloud can be generated in the required format without the need for an extra conversion tool, realising integration with diverse cloud services, turning conventional PLCs into IIoT smart devices. Furthermore, users can simply configure the settings via an intuitive graphical interface, eliminating the need for writing JSON codes in order to Continue reading New EasyBuilder Pro Feature for cMT Series: MQTT JSON Advanced Format Setting

New Product Announcement: MT8053iE 4.3″ HMI with Dual Ethernet & Built-in EasyAccess 2.0

Product Introduction: Ethernet is gradually becoming the standard interface for PLCs and controllers, the demand for data exchange with upper layer devices (SCADA) over the network and integration with cloud services is also increasing. To meet these demands, Weintek released models with dual Ethernet ports: MT8073iE(7”), MT8090XE(10”), and cMT Series, which all received positive customer feedback. To provide users with a wider choice of screen sizes, Weintek have launched a new 4.3″ dual-Ethernet HMI – MT8053iE. Adding new I/O ports into such small enclosure is always a challenge due to space constraints, however, Weintek pushed the boundaries to make it possible.

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

We’re exhibiting at the Factories of The Future Exhibition

We’re Exhibiting at the Factories of The Future Exhibition in Manchester Feb 28-March 2nd 2018.  The exhibition is running alongside the Industry 4.0 Summit – we’re on Stand Q15 – you can register here for free to attend – come along and discuss how we can help you to quickly develop & build your IIoT & implement with new and existing machines.

We’re exhibiting at the Factories of the Future Expo 4-5th April 2017

Running parallel to the Industry 4.0 Summit, the Factories of the Future EXPO will showcase the latest products and services for Industry 4.0, IIoT, smart factories and the future of manufacturing. The expo will be attended by manufacturing professionals from the UK & continental Europe  and will givethem an opportunity to see the latest advances/ new technologies in automation, robotics, software, sensors, virtual reality, augmented reality and other related areas. We will be showing products from Automation Direct & Weintek that can help you build your IIoT & Smart Factory. Come and see on stand S60. See event details here: Continue reading We’re exhibiting at the Factories of the Future Expo 4-5th April 2017

New Product Announcement : cMT-G01

In IIoT applications, data integration plays a very important role, to achieve data integration, it’s essential that communication between onsite machines and upper layer data management systems (SCADA, ERP…etc.) is seamless, however, in factories where very often each controller uses a different communication protocol, data integration is challenging. With more than 20 years of experience of HMI development, the Weintek R&D Team have released the IIoT Smart Communication Gateway: cMT-G01 as a solution for data transfer and integration in the IIoT. With in-built de-facto standard IIoT protocols, MQTT and OPC UA and the ability to process data just as a Continue reading New Product Announcement : cMT-G01

HMI with WiFi Capability – MT-8103iE

Weintek have brought a great new innovation – the MT-8103iE, an HMI with built-in WiFi! As the 4th industrial revolution takes shape, a growing number of users require their HMIs to connect with ERP or other monitoring systems. Although Ethernet is the most widely used communication protocol between HMI and monitoring systems, not every factory has Ethernet wiring – in this case, Wi-Fi connectivity provides a great solution. Features 10.1″ 1024 x 600 TFT LCD with LED Backlight COM2 and COM3 RS-485 support MPI 187.5K (please use one at a time!) PCB coating process ensures high reliability to resist from Continue reading HMI with WiFi Capability – MT-8103iE

cMT Series HMI helps build your IIoT environment through OPC UA

In the era of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), not only should the connectivity of equipment on the plant floor improve, upper layer management systems, such as SCADA, MES, ERP…etc, should be able to have immediate access to data produced by factory machines. Weintek provides the best solution for communication between onsite machines and upper layer management systems. This is achieved with the cMT Series Smart HMIs (cMT-SVR & cMT3151), using the most common M2M protocols: MQTT and OPC UA. In this architecture, the cMT Series HMI are not just for operating machines, collecting and managing data, but also become Continue reading cMT Series HMI helps build your IIoT environment through OPC UA
