Aw 90956 1512np Softplc

Combining the power of the company's open architecture PACs with an embedded Linux version of their Web Studio SCADA software (IoTView), the unit provides a robust automation solution suitable for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0. The unit reduces equipment and maintenance cost, energy use, and control panel size over traditional PLC + HMI control systems or combined PLC/HMI products. Any of the company's PACs can become an IoTPAC with the addition of the embedded IoTView software. A memory based driver allows the virtual HMI to read/write to the PAC data table. Any PC, tablet, or smart phone can be used as the operator interface, whether connected by hard-wire, wirelessly, or over the internet. The unit provides programmable logic control for I/O devices from many vendors; data and event logging, locally, over a network or to a cloud database; alarming via text message/email; HTML5 virtual HMI, making it possible to monitor/control the PAC and connected devices via any web browser, to read/write to remote databases or to a cloud-based TagWell platform. The unit provides communication to PLCs, drives and PCs via Ethernet, serial and industrial networks, and features a embedded firewall/VPN for security
