DCS MQTT Protocol Support Added to Productivity Sereis CPUs Automation Direct 2 400

April 12, 2022


The Productivity family of controllers now offers the MQTT protocol for connections to cloud computing platforms. MQTT has become the front-runner for many machine-to-machine (M2M) and IIoT/cloud networking applications, due to its lightweight overhead and reduced bandwidth consumption. Productivity PLCs now support MQTT communication and with the fill-in-the-blank MQTT messaging configurations within Productivity Suite, delivering vital data to advanced cloud computing platforms is easy.

The Electronic Data Sheet (EDS) file library offers a powerful way to organize and sort your EDS files when configuring EtherNet/IP communications – automatically group by device type or vendor and manage versions. EtherNet/IP EDS files come already installed for added convenience.
