New Product Announcement: New BRX Discrete i/o, Combination i/o, High-Speed Pulse Combo and POM

The BRX expansion modules snap onto the side of any BRX Micro PLC Unit (MPU) or BRX Remote I/O controller. Newly added BRX discrete I/O modules include 5, 8, and 16-point relay output modules with Form A (SPST) and Form C (SPDT) options; 16-point 2-5 VDC discrete input and output modules; a 16-point 2-5 VDC discrete combination input/output module; and the HSIO4 high-speed pulse combo module capable of handling up to a 2MHz frequency in differential or single-ended wiring configurations. In addition, a new Pluggable Option Module (POM) with full Ethernet capability and support for MQTT Client, Do-more, EtherNet/IP, Ethernet Continue reading New Product Announcement: New BRX Discrete i/o, Combination i/o, High-Speed Pulse Combo and POM

New Feature Annoucement: OPC UA Historical Data Access Feature for Weintek cMT Series HMI

NFC Weintek OPC UA Historical Data image

Access to historical data is an important aspect in any smart system upgrade and integration. From data/trend analysis, process optimization and failure prediction to pre-emptive maintenance, analytics rely on complete historical data being available before any meaningful action can be taken. OPC UA, which features platform independence, robust security and high scalability, has stood out as a prominent choice for a standardized IIoT communication protocol; and, given its importance in the field, Weintek continues to develop and add OPC UA related feature support. From EasyBuilder Pro v6.04.02 onwards, OPC UA Historical Data Access (HDA) feature has been added, allowing OPC Continue reading New Feature Annoucement: OPC UA Historical Data Access Feature for Weintek cMT Series HMI

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

7″ cMT Series HMI – cMT3072 – Launching 1st December 2017

The latest addition to the Weintek HMI range is the 7″ cMT3072. Built on the proven Weintek cMT architecture, the cMT3072 brings the rich features of the CloudHMI cMT architecture to the 7″ HMI market. The panel cut-out is the same as the existing Weintek 7″ HMI but the resolution is improved from 800 x 480 to 1024 x 600 on the cMT3072. The screen itself is IPS rather than the existing TFT offering superior clarity and wider viewing angles. With the built-in EasyAccess 2.0 licence, remote access to the HMI and PassThrough to PLCs and controllers is a breeze and dual ethernet Continue reading 7″ cMT Series HMI – cMT3072 – Launching 1st December 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

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
