  • Increase productivity with better development and lifecycle automation tools.
  • Reduce development time dramatically.
  • Reduce operating expenses through the use of open technology and secure Internet communications.
  • Reduce service and downtime costs by designing-in Predictive Maintenance capabilities into all equipment.
  • Easily collect global equipment data for analytics, business support systems and operations support systems.
  • Deliver high performance, rich Software PLC’s that will make products more competitive.
  • Integrate IoT data into SCADA and Building Management (BMS) systems
  • Compete more effectively with smart products that deliver better customer experiences

With the CloudPlugs Industrial IoT Products, traditional commercial and industrial devices seamlessly interoperate with each other and with any other device connected to the CloudPlugs platform.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Products bridge the Internet of Things of devices with IP addresses with devices without IP addresses by integrating them with a secure, efficient, IP channel over the Internet for control, data collection and inter-device communication.

The CloudPlugs Industrial IoT (IIoT) products are delivered electronically through a secure download link and they include:

IIoT GATEWAY

The IIoT Gateway™ easily integrates standard Modbus devices into the CloudPlugs IoT platform. A single gateway can simultaneously manage several hundred Modbus devices, and sets up a secure bi-directional connection over the Internet with the CloudPlugs IoT platform, eliminating the need for virtual private networks, firewalls and complex network infrastructure in the field. Device data and events are sent securely to the platform and control commands are received and executed by the devices.

IIoT Gateways™ can be integrated with a SCADA or BMS system through the IIoT SCADA Gateway.

When coupled with the SmartPlug™, the IIoT Gateway™ delivers unparalleled local intelligence, control and the ability to remotely develop and deploy new applications and services. Turn your existing devices into smart devices or smart Software PLC’s managed and updated from the cloud.

The IIoT Gateway™ delivers the the capabilities and versatility that today’s industrial processes demand. For full product features and benefits, please refer to the Product Features Table below.

Requirements

Software
  • Any Linux, FreeBSD, or Unix operating systems.
Hardware
  • Any x86 or ARM 11 based hardware with minimum 64MB of RAM and 5MB of free storage.
  • Actual deployable hardware specs depends on the number of field devices to be managed. Please contact us to spec your project.

IIoT THING

The IIoT Thing™ easily integrates single Modbus devices into the CloudPlugs IoT platform. A Modbus Thing connects a Modbus device to the CloudPlugs IoT platform through a secure, bi-directional channel over the Internet, eliminating the need for virtual private networks, firewalls and complex network infrastructure in the field. Device data and events are sent securely to the platform and control commands are received and executed by the field device.

IIoT Things™ can be integrated with a SCADA or BMS system through the IIoT SCADA Gateway.

When coupled with the SmartPlug™, the IIoT Thing™ delivers unparalleled local intelligence, control and the ability to remotely develop and deploy new applications and services. Turn your devices into smart devices or smart Software PLCs managed and updated from the cloud.

The IIoT Thing™ delivers the the capabilities and versatility that today’s industrial processes demand.  For full product features and benefits, please refer to the Product Features Table below.

IIoT CONNECTOR

The IIoT Connector™ is a dual purpose product designed to integrate standard Modbus devices into the CloudPlugs IoT platform, while also providing local connectivity to a SCADA or Building Management System.  It is designed for environments in which the field devices and the SCADA or BMS system are in the same facility, but is desired to have the device data available in the cloud for access by other analytics, business or operational support applications.

A single IIoT Connector™ can simultaneously manage several hundred Modbus devices, and sets up a secure bi-directional connection over the Internet with the CloudPlugs IoT platform, eliminating the need for virtual private networks, firewalls and complex network infrastructure in the field. Device data and events are sent securely to the platform and control commands are received and executed by the devices.

IIoT Connectors™ can be easily configured to connect seamlessly as a Modbus slave device with any local SCADA or BMS system.  The local SCADA or BMS system maintains bi-directional communications with the devices through the IIoT Connector.

When coupled with the SmartPlug™, the IIoT Connector™ delivers unparalleled local intelligence, control and the ability to remotely develop and deploy new applications and services. Turn your existing devices into smart devices or smart Software PLC’s managed and updated from the cloud.

The IIoT Connector™ delivers the the capabilities and versatility that today’s industrial processes demand. For full product features and benefits, please refer to the Product Features Table below.

IIoT SCADA GATEWAY

The IIoT SCADA Gateway™ enables seamless, bi-directional communications between the CloudPlugs platform and SCADA and BMS systems. It can connect to any SCADA or BMS system since it emulates a full, bi-directional Modbus slave device.  The Gateway automatically maps Modbus port and register data to channel data in the CloudPlugs message bus, enabling SCADA and BMS systems to transparently manage traditional field devices and new generation smart devices.

The IIoT SCADA Gateway™ is typically installed on a computer or server located on the same LAN as the SCADA or BMS system and it connects to CloudPlugs using either MQTT or a SmartPlug™.

The IIoT SCADA Gateway™ delivers the the capabilities and versatility that today’s industrial processes demand. For full product features and benefits, please refer to the Product Features Table below.
