An Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) controller from ifm is said to offer a powerful, communicative and flexible programmable logic controller (PLC) solution in machine and plant digitalisation.

With ambient temperatures of up to 55 °C, the 1.3 GHz quad-core processor is designed to work at a high-performance level. It is described as having a true language and translation talent with its various protocols enabling connections to the information technology world or the integration of automation technology I/O data. A plug-and-work connection of IO-link devices is also possible, including IO device description, or IODD, interpretation.

The IIoT controller is freely programmable by means of CODESYS V3.5, making it a flexible solution. In addition, the CODESYS automation server enables remote debugging and remote Web visualisation.

The IIoT controller allows for transmission of the recorded and prepared data to the most common cloud platforms such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and AnyViz. Furthermore, the IIoT controller speaks the common standard digitisation languages such as OPC UA and MQTT. Whenever data is to be recorded and processed in real-time, I/Os can be read and controlled by using industrial ethernet protocols such as Profinet, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP.
