How to use PLC gateway in industrial automation monitoring system?
By collecting PLC, touch screen and other data, and connecting with OPC UA, configuration and 4G wireless access to the IoT cloud platform, PLC gateway BL102 realizes real-time monitoring and control of industrial automation systems

PLC gateway is an important part of modern industrial automation control system. They serve as a bridge between different Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), enabling data acquisition, control output, and remote management functions. In this article, we discuss the importance of PLC gateways, explore their benefits and use cases.

PLC gateways are very important in industrial automation control systems as they allow communication between multiple PLCs. They monitor and analyze production data in real time to optimize production efficiency and quality. Additionally, they simplify system architecture and reduce wiring and installation costs.

An important benefit of using a PLC gateway is its integration with various industrial communication protocols such as Modbus and Ethernet/IP. This integration ensures that the PLC Gateway can communicate with different types of PLCs, making it suitable for various industrial environments.

PLC gateways have many uses in industrial automation control systems. For example, they can connect multiple PLCs on a production line into a centralized control system, providing real-time monitoring and management of the production process. They can also be used to remotely monitor and manage industrial equipment and systems, enabling better maintenance and reduced downtime. Also, PLC Gateway can be integrated with MES (Manufacturing Execution System) for better production management.

At BLIIoT Technology Co., we offer a variety of PLC gateways designed to support direct interfacing via the PLC's own protocol without additional programming. Our PLC gateways support the collection of various types of PLCs via Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP simultaneously, making them ideal for use in different industrial environments. In addition, our PLC gateway supports wireless remote upload and download of PLC programs, making it more convenient to debug and manage PLCs. They also support data acquisition and control output, protocol conversion and data acquisition from various devices. Our PLC gateways offer many other features including support for multiple IoT cloud platforms, custom protocol development and high reliability with software and hardware watchdogs.
