Protocol conversion

 

Sharing data between machines to optimize operations

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 the data formats, data rate and protocols of one network into the protocols of the network in which data is navigating. BoX2 also supports OPC UA, a secure communication protocol designed to connect ERP systems, analytic tools, databases and other enterprise systems with the real-world data from controllers and other devices. Furthermore, applications can be added additional smart functions such as local data base storage, etc. All to be combined, so you can optimize the overall performance of your operations.


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, analytic tools, etc.

BoX2 supports OPC UA, a 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, recipes, 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.
