Seamlessly inter-connect PLC control systems and their connected devices to the IIoT networks MQTT and OPC-UA

The X-gateway IIoT’s primary function is to allow the fast streaming of an industrial network into OPC-UA and MQTT. This offloads your PLC from working with additional services while providing extra security by isolated the high-risk connections away from sensitive areas.  In principle, the PLC gets its own firewall.

The connection between the two networks is quickly set up in the Anybus Configuration Manager software, included with the X-gateway. No programming skills are needed to set up the X-gateway.
