SYS TEC electronic GmbH is a premium supplier of electronic services that specializes primarily in developing and manufacturing customer-specific electronic solutions for embedded systems and distributed automation. Over the course of the digital revolution, classic control issues have been joined by a steady stream of new ideas and concepts, many of which depend on collaborative industrial communication. On the flip side, developments such as condition monitoring and predictive maintenance have been optimizing processes by capturing data and passing it on with the aim of driving down costs. To help deliver that crucial collective communication, SYS TEC is showcasing the new CTR-700 smart gateway from the sysWORXX family at HANNOVER MESSE 2018.

Helping the CTR-700 gateway cope with the application scenarios above are numerous industrial inputs and outputs such as TCP/IP, MQTT, Modbus, CANopen, USB and μSD, plus two Ethernet interfaces. This safeguards the separation of Enterprise IT and Shop Floor OT. However, what makes the sysWORXX CTR-700 really stand out is its software. The device can be programmed using IEC 61131-3 and various IoT languages (C#/.Net, Node-RED, Java, Python). This eliminates the need for costly external programming services and ultimately means that the controller speaks the same language as staff and vice versa.
