Industry 4.0 leads to new business models in the area of production, maintenance and monitoring tasks. Global addressable gateways such as the DATAEAGLE 2730 Cloud series, with universal eSIM cards validated by countless providers, play an important role in monitoring globally installed machines and sensors. This allows signals from all over the world and from data sources of all kinds, such as diagnostic messages from large machines or water levels, to be transmitted to the cloud via mobile communications.
Often, sensor or machine data are transferred from the field level to the control unit or network for further use. For this, the radio link must be compatible with the communication technology used by the control unit, in most cases a fieldbus. The DATAEAGLE modules compact 2730 are made for this.
At the field level, sensor and actuator data of all types are registered or machine data is monitored. Within this level, data can be transmitted wirelessly with the DATAEAGLE X-treme IO 2730 series. First and foremost are the simple point-to-point connections that are used as stand-alone IO systems in many process and manufacturing automation applications and can be expanded into mesh networks with many hundreds of sensors.
