HMS introduces new Anybus IT/OT gateways, enabling direct communication between .NET based applications and PROFIBUS/PROFINET systems.
As a user you focus on defining and integrating an information model in your systems while HMS technology handles the communication layer and message protocol.
Many production facilities are collecting production KPI data from machines on a weekly basis using USB sticks and Excel sheets. The Anybus gateway makes it simple to send for example OEE or quality data directly into an application for real time KPI monitoring.
Many production areas have custom built measurement systems developed in the .NET framework. The gateway enables direct transfer of the measurement data from the PC into the PLC. The typical solution today is to implement a simple protocol such as Modbus on both the PC and buy an additional in-rack module on the PLC. HMS gateway allows you to skip this step and integrate data directly in the .NET application and PLC programming environment.
In this scenario, the recipe application is a custom-built application that is running on a virtual server that is maintained by the IT department. The gateway makes it simple transfer structured data types from the .NET environment into a PLC.
Communication between a .NET application and a PLC has never been easier. Follow the guide and you will be up and running in about 10 minutes
