The new industrial Wireless Network Platform from connectBlue enables an industrial connection free of cabling concerns.
Chicago, IL — The new industrial Wireless Network Platform from wireless infrastructure provider connectBlue mable logic controllers (PLCs).
In demanding industrial applications , the platform acts as a universal “Ethernet to Bluetooth” gateway easily configured via customized Web pages. For example, it can replace Ethernet cables by providing wireless communication to moving and rotating devices, or replacing difficult or expensive to install cable runs. The device accommodates up to seven Bluetooth Serial Port connections to an Ethernet network, providing virtual serial cables between the industrial devices and a PC connected to the Ethernet, company says.
