Protocol conversion

 

Sharing data between machines to optimize operations

BoX2 makes your machines – old and new – communicate efficiently, however complex the setup. BoX2 has communication drivers to all major brands of controllers on the market. This makes it easy to route key data and exchange it with the overlying systems in your facility. Optimizing operations and production speed.

BoX2 can operate as a protocol converter enabling two or more different controller devices to exchange data and achieve interoperability. Drivers for the different controllers are installed on BoX2, which converts data from one network into protocols of the network in which data is navigating. BoX2 supports OPC UA, a secure communication protocol designed to connect ERP systems, analytic tools, databases and other enterprise systems with real-world data from controllers and other devices. Add additional smart functions to optimize overall operational performance.


Drivers for all major brands

With more than 75 PLC driver families of all major brands of controllers on the market, BoX2 can access all the data hidden in your machines or facility.


Connect to ERP systems, analytics, etc.

BoX2 supports OPC UA, a secure communication protocol designed to connect ERP systems, analytic tools, databases and other enterprise systems with real-world data from controllers and other devices. OPC UA is a secure, open, reliable mechanism for transferring information between servers and clients.


Add smart functions

Applications can be added additional smart functions such as local data base storage, alarm servers, data exchange, reporting, c# scripting, etc. giving you widened opportunities to realize what you want to accomplish in your solutions. Smart functions are configured via iX software.

 


Easy configuration with WARP

Create integrated solutions with WARP Engineering Studio. WARP automatically configures all hardware, software and communication, and accesses all individual application software in your application. What used to take days to set up, can be up and running in a few minutes.
