MODBUS Gateway

MODBUS Gateway

CASCADEMIC’s MODBUS Gateway addresses the Industry’s need for a single gateway which can collect data from a variety of sensors and industrial machines. The highly adaptable Smart Gateway also provides the user modularity from software as well as hardware points of view, with all the wireless and wired interfaces built on modular architecture. This plug and play architecture greatly reduces the prototype development life cycle and provides developers and integrators a multitude of options with regard to the feature set of the Gateway.

With various input interfaces like RS485, RS232 and Analog Inputs, the Gateway can be connected to multiple sensors and is suitable for a variety of Industrial IoT Use Cases. The MODBUS Gateway can be fitted onto existing industrial sensors and meters with no replacement of the infrastructure, thus acting as an add-on non-invasive wireless converter to the legacy systems.

The MODBUS Gateway is based on NXP Semiconductors Chipset.

• Configurable Inputs
• Modular Wireless Communication
• Intelligent On Board Storage
• Wide Protocol Support
• Cloud Ready Gateway

Industry, more than any other sector, has developed a keen interest in reducing energy consumption because high energy costs have become a key economic driver, especially for those in technology-intensive fields. With the Smart Gateway from CASCADEMIC you can connect to various energy meters through the DLMS and MODBUS Protocol enabling real time monitoring of energy consumption. The rugged Gateway can be connected to most energy meters with cloud connectivity enabling utility based billing.

With a modular architecture and intelligent wireless communication with store and forward logic implemented on Gateway, you can be assured of no data loss so as to make accurate and effective decisions using the energy data.
