Advantech MQTT-capable solutions for IoT data acquisition

Thursday, 01 February, 2018 | Supplied by: Advantech Australia Pty Ltd


Advantech MQTT-capable solutions for IoT data acquisition are suitable for constrained environments with low network bandwidth or high latency and remote devices with limited memory and processing capabilities.

MQTT’s lite payloads reduce bandwidth needs for high-volume data collection from mechanical and enclosed equipment and facilitate remote execution of real-time status monitoring and event handling.

Advantech offers a complete portfolio of MQTT-capable solutions, such as its WebAccess software platform, WISE-4000 sensor nodes and ADAM-3600 remote terminal unit. As well as ADAM-6000 Ethernet I/O modules, ECU-1152 protocol gateways and SmartSwarm 300 cellular IIoT gateway, suitable for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications.

The WISE-4000 series and ADAM-6000 series products can be directly connected to the cloud or ERP/MES systems and communicate using the MQTT protocol without needing a gateway or converter. Such device-to-cloud architectures not only substantially reduce equipment costs and facilitate device authentication/access control and network intelligence, but also offer nearly instant communication between enterprise applications and the cloud network.

Integrated with Advantech’s WebAccess/SCADA software, Advantech devices with MQTT capabilities support plug-and-play installation on cloud platforms. This eliminates the time-consuming configuration of individual sensor nodes and reduces installation costs and turnaround time for large data acquisition systems.

The advantages of using the MQTT protocol with WebAccess/SCADA include the ability to resume operations from any breakpoint without data losses. Moreover, during network interruptions, data can be buffered in the WISE-4000 module until network communication is resumed and a client device reads the data. This not only prevents data loss, but also allows users to manage the information flow to network nodes.
