Switch and monitor digital I/O states to transmit them to IT/Cloud/SCADA services
ip4Cloud/SEC3IO extends ip4Cloud by a device with an I/O module to add the feature of switching and capturing digital states and providing them in IT and cloud environments. In addition to a large number of fieldbus protocols, telecontrol protocols, and established IT/cloud protocols, eight digital inputs and eight digital outputs can be used for recording and reflecting switching states.
Thanks to numerous interfaces, the device can be easily integrated into individual environments and connected to specialized fieldbus systems.
Thus digital data can be controlled and captured from any devices, switches, counters, or sensors, either selectively or periodically. This data can be used for further analysis and processing in IT and cloud applications.
Joining of different protocols as well as the simultaneous use of multiple connections is feasible with this module. In addition to the raw value of a data point, the attributes quality and time stamp can also be transferred and processed (protocol-dependent).
Security at the highest level
Communication between multiple data sources
Simultaneous use of diverse protocols
User-defined mapping of information
Intelligent information processing
Support of industry-standard protocols
No programming required
Secure access to all administrative services (HTTPS, SSH, SFTP)
Role-based access protection with login and password
User administration for local users
Central user administration via Active Directory (LDAP) and/or RADIUS
Crypto Store for certificate management
Creation of self-signed certificates and Certificate Signing Requests (CSRs)
Import and export of certificates
Configuration of VPN tunnels (OpenVPN and IPsec)
Safeguarded real-time Linux operating system
Assigning multiple IP addresses to one physical Ethernet interface
Network management using an integrated SNMP agent
NTP based clock synchronization
The integrated web server allows configuration and maintenance to be carried out easily, using just a web browser. The most important industrial communication protocols are supported for simple integration. In addition, templates are provided for further simplification.
Central access to all settings and services is provided and all important files/updates are imported via the web interface:
Firmware (application and operating system)
Configuration data using Excel spreadsheet (signal table)
X. 509 certificates
All data is broken down into separate information (single indications, measured values, counter values, etc.) and processed accordingly. A quality identifier and - if necessary - a time stamp can be associated with each information item.
Namespace and data model can be changed as desired.
Powerful functions for data processing such as type conversion, scaling, grouping, etc.
Data reduction / regulation of bandwidth required on secondary side via update intervals, threshold values, old/new comparison, collective messages, selection of data points, etc.
ip4Cloud/SEC3IO Use Cases
ip4Cloud/SEC3IO records and reflects switching states, serves as a visualization-, monitoring-, logging- and alarm reporting system
and assumes control and regulation tasks.
MirrorDevice The digital outputs are controlled by the digital inputs of a second ip4Cloud/SEC3IO.
In this way, switching signals between two locations are transferred.
PingModul PING - monitoring of network components to ensure the operational readiness, to log, to visualize and to alert
SNMPClient SNMP - monitoring of network components with visualization and alerting
Reading of network element variables such as routers, switches, servers, printers, etc.
EventRecorder All information of interest can be recorded over a period of several weeks, depending on the amount of data.
