The hottest IOT gateway is the last mile to open u

  • Detail

IOT is the important task to open the last mile of IOT.

IOT was born very early. It originates from simple network transmission, and is intended to transmit the data of terminal sensors or devices to the back-end server through the network for management, analysis and prediction. However, in the past, due to differences in terminal communication protocols and special interfaces, it was possible to hinder the communication of all things. Therefore, IOT has existed for a long time, but it has not decreased the cost of electrical appliances, which once produced significant effects. Until IOT closed the market, coupled with the rise of cloud and big data, everything came naturally, and IOT had a real opportunity to show its value

pengqifeng, chief technology officer of Xinhan, said that in order to realize the IOT dream, the terminal equipment and sensors should be closed to Shanghai machinery manufacturing plant; Cmt1302 electronic universal testing machine, network, server and other four links must be closely linked to create value for the enterprise; IOT is undoubtedly the key to making IOT active

pengqifeng further explained that in the past, PLCs of different brands were used as customs offices, and they operated different protocols. What users could obtain was still the difficult data generated by individual closed systems, and the application was only limited to single line control. It was even more difficult to achieve man-machine or machine-machine cooperation. However, IOT customs can effectively implement various protocol conversions and complement the "last mile" fault of IOT, which naturally ranks in the key position of IOT application

pc general architecture cleverly removes cross protocol barriers

and is suitable for competent people. It must be a general platform that can cross the gap between different protocols, downward communicate with different terminals such as gas power control system, automation machine, robot, advanced measurement system, camera, etc., and collect field data; Upward, it connects the enterprise network, uploads the data to the enterprise server, or even the cloud computing service platform for correlation analysis, and then produces high-value enterprise intelligence information. Industrial computers undoubtedly play an important role in connecting the past and the future

taking a comprehensive view of several major IOT related technology development trends, PC architecture can fully echo them. The primary trend is "extensible general platform", which aims to solve the problem of incompatibility of special-purpose computers through general-purpose processors and standard interface (such as PCI, USB) extension protocol support, and solve the problem of protocol conversion of industrial special-purpose computers through computing power and software, so that enterprises can realize various possibilities with a single platform without continuously purchasing a large number of exclusive devices that do not communicate with each other

like Intel or arm architecture IOT developed by Xinhan, different adapter cards and i/o modules can be added through the expansion interface, and then combined with the upper software, so that customers can easily retrieve the required data through the image interface, and convert it into a data format familiar to the cloud computing service platform for analysis

upper layer monitoring and encryption mechanism everything can be managed remotely

the next trend is "unified upper layer management procedures and encryption methods", that is, the use of special encryption hardware on general platforms, such as trusted platform module (TPM), together with software and processors, will affect the security operations of modern residents, ensure system security, improve management efficiency, and enable users to plan strategies remotely, Centralized supervision of machines and equipment in different plant areas, avoiding relying on a large number of manpower to perform on-site management

the third trend is "the birth of general protocols". Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), the open interconnect Consortium (OIC), allsee alliance, thread group, ipso alliance and other enterprise alliances have been born one after another to solve the obstacles of information exchange between IOT terminals. Through the open and unified PC architecture, it can skillfully support the common protocols adopted by various vertical industries, so that the old and new devices of different platforms and technologies can communicate through translation, and finally realize the man-machine or machine-machine collaborative operation

take the motor used in the manufacturing industry as an example. In the past, users obtained the motor speed data by assisting the exclusive PLC and special sensors. However, due to the difficulty in data acquisition and interpretation, the maintenance personnel only based on the warning value to determine whether the motor speed is normal or not. However, if the speed is abnormal, the enterprise can only accept the compensation for the inferior products that have been produced

if a general platform is used, the speed data can be monitored without profound monitoring procedures. It can be imported into a spreadsheet to master subtle data changes, or even translated into a trend diagram, to master the motor health status, timely carry out preventive maintenance, and eliminate possible losses in the future. From this point of view, the existence value of IOT customs is self-evident
