Turck presents universal IoT wireless gateways for wireless connection to cloud solutions. This makes it easy to integrate machines and systems as well as measuring points in remote locations into automation networks. With its extensive range of interfaces, the TCG20 series is specially tailored to the requirements of industrial automation.
On the radio side there are three variants: with UMTS, with dual-band WLAN as well as with UMTS and WLAN simultaneously. In the direction of automation infrastructure, the network and protocol diversity is even greater: the TCG20 series has a serial RS232 / RS485 port, a CAN port and up to five Ethernet ports. In addition to CAN open, the devices also support Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU as master and slave, OPC UA as client and server, and Codesys network variables.
Via the integrated web server, the gateways can be configured online at any time via graphically arranged menus without programming knowledge. A web-based edge PLC editor handles simple control tasks as well as preprocessing data for cyclic or event-controlled data transmission. Thus, the mobile costs in UMTS operation manageable.
The wireless gateways of the TCG20 series complement the cloud offering Turck Cloud Solutions, which was presented this summer. The entire cloud concept is similarly variable in structure as the gateways and also optimized for the special requirements of industrial automation.
