The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) increasingly requires applications to retrieve I/O data from field devices and then push the data to OT (private cloud) and IT (public cloud) platforms. Using modular remote I/Os to retrieve I/O data, however, is not always plain sailing as a number of complications can slow down daily operations, requiring extra working hours and costs to get things running smoothly again. We take a closer look at a number of pain points and show you how our ioThinx 4510 IIoT modular remote I/O can help you, no matter whether you are an IT or OT expert.

Your Pain Points

You want to copy previous configuration settings to the current modules, but the fact is...

You have to keep the current I/O sequences or module types the same as the previous module combinations; otherwise, you have to reconfigure all the modules, including the settings of each module and the Modbus address/RESTful channel name to the upper-level software (e.g., SCADA), all over again, which will increase your operation costs. Our ioThinx 4510 calls only for simple changing with no reconfiguration efforts required.

You want to use the protocol that you are familiar with, but the fact is...

You are frustrated. You are back at square one as you have to undergo the whole buying process all over again to find a new solution just because the current modular remote I/O your company uses does not support the IT protocols (e.g., SNMP, RESTful) that you are familiar with. So you have to spend more time and effort than expected to complete your project as only OT protocols are supported by the current remote I/O. Our ioThinx 4510 supports multiple IT/OT protocols, allowing you to fulfill a variety of protocol conversions in one device.
