In recent years, Industry 4.0 had become one of the hottest topics in our daily life and with the development of IIoT / M2M, more and more things are connected via advanced technologies and getting it closer and closer to Industrial 4.0 applications. The idea is to get tens / hundreds of machines well connected from each corner of the world and make it easier to remote access to the machines and do the configuration. This idea is very attractive to the engineers because they don’t need to take a plane and travel thousands of kilometers to do the simple configuration. So this is the real application of Industrial 4.0 and it benefit us a lot.
Projects Technical Highlights
- The router should have 4G LTE and Dual SIM in order to have a backup link.
- Multiple interfaces are requested, like serial ports, Ethernet port in order to get other equipment like PLC well connected.
- Industrial rugged design and be able to work under harsh environment like high temperature, vibration and shacking environment.
NavigateWorx NR500-S4G is selected for this kind of application and with its strong and high EMC level design, it could get all the equipment well connected and have internet access to be online for remote visitors all the time. Abundant interfaces provide the connection for the local PLC etc via RS485 and Ethernet Ports, this Solution make the IIoT become real and closer to our daily life, it makes the machines talk to each other and benefit us a lot. Thanks, Industrial 4.0.
