IoT gateway industrial computer with protocol library
Advantech’s UNO-1251G is a DIN-rail mountable IoT gateway industrial computer that features a programmable OLED display, wireless communication slot, and built in CANbus. It supports over 450 programmable logic controllers (PLCs), controllers, and input/output (I/O) device protocols with WebAccess/human-machine interface (HMI) software. With an integrated CANbus connecter, the UNO-1251G is especially suitable for networking intelligent I/O devices such as sensors and actuators. To aid development of CANbus applications, the UNO-1251G includes the Advantech CANopen protocol library, which provides a C application programming interface (API) to use, configure, start, and monitor CANopen devices.
The UNO-1251G has been designed to be operated remotely from any computer or table with a virtual network computer (VNC) client installed and engineers can remotely access the UNO-1251G for diagnosis and control from wherever they are located. Through WebAccess, it helps move from proprietary systems to an open architecture and eases the integration of different devices. The programming OLED display provides operators with intuitive system status messages. It comes with a range of default messages but is also able to be programmed using the OLED display API by site engineers so specific messages can be shown.
