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.

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.
