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

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

cMT Smart HMI + Smart Meter = Smart Solution

In today’s competitive global economy, soaring energy prices and environmental regulations have driven energy management and efficiency. Metering and monitoring of electricity demand and consumption is core to an energy management system for domestic, commercial and industrial plant. The combination of cMT3151 and a Smart Meter offers a great solution for an energy demand management system. The accuracy of demand calculation is ensured by two user defined parameters: “Demand Duration” and “Demand Update Frequency”. The acquired data can be used to monitor and manage demand. The 15” cMT3151 HMI gives clear meter data visualisation as well as clear trending enabling Continue reading cMT Smart HMI + Smart Meter = Smart Solution

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
