MC Moxas Advanced IIoT Gateways wiht Seamless Azure IoT Edge 1 400

When embracing the new era of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), many system integrators and engineers face the critical challenge of finding a secure and reliable IIoT-gateway solution that offers regular security patches to remedy system vulnerabilities in a timely manner. Moxa’s newly launched AIG-300 Series IIoT gateways come with Azure IoT Edge integration that adds significant value in the form of unique features that help build a cost- and time-efficient IIoT system.

Seamless Azure IoT Edge Integration for Quick and Reliable Connectivity to the Cloud

IIoT gateways need to be highly secure and reliable to facilitate seamless edge-to-cloud data acquisition and device management. The AIG-300 IIoT gateway, seamlessly integrated with Azure IoT Edge and powered by ThingsPro, is a market-leading solution for reliable, quick, and easy data acquisition and device management. Data collected from devices can be transferred to Azure IoT Edge and then on to the Azure IoT Hub with a few simple configuration steps. Conversely, devices can be effectively managed via the route of Azure IoT Hub to the Azure IoT Edge on the AIG series IIoT gateways. This seamless one-stop edge-to-cloud platform can greatly help customers shrink the system development time and cost.

Device Provisioning Made Easier and the Bootup Process Safer Than Ever Before

Most IIoT applications are deployed in remote, unmanned, and harsh environments such as a smart grid, energy storage systems, solar fields, oil and gas refineries, and rail-wayside applications. Maintaining normal operations and monitoring statuses effectively is crucial to these systems. The AIG series gateways, with their wide-temperature design and low power consumption, are well-suited for use in these environments.

With capabilities such are resume file transmission, over-the-air (OTA) upgrades, and Secure Boot, the AIG series gateways, located in remote sites, can be upgraded and maintained to ensure their continuous availability and effectively protected against cyberattacks. To avoid disconnections during device crashes and sudden shutdowns, the AIG series comes with built-in recovery functions to enable rollback to the previous stable version of the firmware for uninterrupted network connectivity at remote sites. When a software upgrade fails, the gateways will automatically revert to the software version in the backup, ensuring system stability. A ThingsPro tool simplifies the provisioning process by enabling bulk provisioning of IIoT gateways and performing remote software upgrades.

MC Four Ways Omrons New Factory Drive Recorder Helps You Determine Root Causes 1 400

If a product is scratched by a robot but nobody was there to see it, how do you know what exactly happened? Intermittent problems in manufacturing lines (such as die casting) can cause millions of lost $$$ when repair workers are forced to troubleshoot without any idea of what may have caused the problem or when the problem will occur again.

Omron’s Factory Drive Recorder addresses this issue by letting you monitor machines or areas within your facility and capture what happened just after or prior to a triggering event. Whether your application involves progressive die casting, machine tooling, bottle inspection, high-precision welding, or something else, this solution can save troubleshooting time.

Omron looks at four ways that automation engineers, quality control engineers, system designers, purchasers, and maintenance personnel can benefit from this technology.
