E+H PLANT DEVICE IIoT GATEWAYS & MODEMS
Do you need Network and local access to field device data? Gateways and modems are system components that provide easy access to field device and network data. Modems and gateways provide protocol conversions, allowing software on computers or handhelds to talk directly to field devices.
A modem provides a protocol conversion, e.g. HART/USB or FF/Bluetooth, and is used with a handheld configurator or computer.A modem provides a point-to-point connection: on one side the field device and on the other, depending on modem, a USB computer port or Bluetooth wireless interface.
A gateway provides a parallel network access point for, e.g. device configuration software (FieldCare). In addition to the protocol conversion, gateways offer additional functions, e.g. network and device status monitoring, which can be viewed with a standard web browserA gateway is a system component and connects the Ethernet port of a computer to any fieldbus device in the network. Device configuration software or a web-browser on the computer controls device access.
Simple connection to devices in the field Quick and easy commissioning of field devices Network and device status monitoring (gateways) Concise device diagnosis to NAMUR NE 107 standards (gateways) Remote monitoring and maintenance via web-browser (gateways)
Combined with our Field Expert Tablets, this complete system will give you the information you need at your fingertips.
All industries running process systems can benefit from implementing these devices to monitor and control process line equipment from any mobile device.
