Moxa’s Advanced IIoT Gateways With Seamless Azure IoT Edge Integration for Remote Management at Unmanned Sites

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

June 29, 2022

 

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.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
