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

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

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

MQTT/IoT Capability for Weintek XE Series

Introduced in V5.03.01 onwards of EasyBuilder Pro is an MQTT object for the XE Series HMI. MQTT is a lightweight machine to machine (M2M) “Internet of Things” (IoT) protocol & stands for “MQ Telemetry Transport”,  it’s a publish/subscribe, simple and lightweight messaging protocol, designed for low-bandwidth, high-latency or unreliable networks. Users “subscribe” to their chosen “Topics” with an MQTT client. A topic is a UTF-8 string used by the broker to filter messages for each connected client. Topics consists of one or more topic levels. Each topic level is separated by a forward slash (topic level separator). Different users can Continue reading MQTT/IoT Capability for Weintek XE Series
