Hilscher – Hilscher Gesellschaft für Systemautomation mbH was founded in 1986. Today, the company has more than 260 employees at 10 locations worldwide. With the philosophy of continuous growth based on its own resources, the company is a reliable partner for its customers. All processes are certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and 14001.  The core competence of Hilscher is ASIC technology for fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet, as well as the development and production of industrial communication solutions for modern factory automation. Hilscher’s products range from PC cards, gateways, OEM plug-in modules to powerful ASICs including all main fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocol stacks.

Product Description:  The netIOT Edge gateways securely connect automation networks with cloud or any IoT application. As field devices, they perform cyclic I/O data exchange with the PLCs and IoT-capable field devices providing key field data sets for intelligent higher-level applications and M2M solutions. The netIOT gateways are highly secure with physical separation of the automation and IT network, built with a secure operating system, securely execute only signed firmware and packets with encryption techniques of the latest standards.

A web-based Thing Wiring Editor serves to model the data flow in the devices. Data apps and data profiles are created in minutes with predefined function blocks. OPC UA and MQTT functions address objects in IoT field devices or in the cloud over standardized IoT protocols.

Product family and description:  UC-8112-LX-CG & UC-8112-ME-T-LX-LTE-US-CG
Moxa’s UC-8112-LX-CG is an embedded computing platform designed for large scale, Industrial IoT edge computing applications. It features an ARM® Cortex™-A8 processor and versatile communication interfaces. Coupled with Moxa’s ThingsPro Suite, it enables fast integration between the things in the field and the applications required for the Industrial IoT.

ThingsPro Suite is a set of software packages built on an open Debian Linux platform that enables the integration of Modbus communications, computing, data acquisition, and wireless networking in a few simple steps. Featuring Data Logger and Wireless Manager tools, it empowers users to focus primarily on their applications instead of the complex integration between things in the field and services in a centralized computing facility. Coupled with Cirrus Link’s MQTT spark plug MQTT protocol stacks, users now can easily map Modbus/TCP and Modbus RTU to Spark Plug MQTT while retaining Linux programmability for the Industrial IoT applications.

UC-8112-ME-T-LX-LTE-US is a more ruggedized version of the UC-8112-LX-CG. While UC-8112-LX-CG is designed for LAN-based industrial IoT applications, the UC-8112-ME-T-LX-LTE-US is designed to operate at -40C~70C environment with 4G LTE in operation.
