Ecava DIOT Gateway is an edge device specifically designed from the ground up to compliment cloud SCADA for the IOT era. The DIOT series could instantly enable any on-site system to integrate with IIoT or cloud systems with minimal cost.
The DIOT series could function more than protocol converters at both hardware and software levels. The main benefits shall be the capability to distribute the workload from server to the client side so that you can easily scale up your entire system without adding proportional burden to the server. This means you can save your cost in investing more to the server when you need to scale up the IO count.
The DIOT series will perform data transfer on push mechanism based on change rather than keep on polling data. This will reduce the network bandwidth and reduce the needs of processing power on the server side, and eventually save more cost. Nevertheless you still have the flexibility to put the device into a pull mechanism, e.g. Modbus slave to cater for the legacy requirement.
The distributed IOT device doesn’t need to work in slow VPN but can work with dynamic IP, so you don’t have to have fixed IP at site to connect to the server or cloud. Lastly, all DIOT series can be assigned with UID and password protection before allowing them to connect to the server through the firewall.
The DIOT Gateway can be configured using a provided friendly programming tool. The configuration is seamlessly integrated with IGX SCADA, because there’s no additional mapping configuration nor data parsing logic needed in Ecava IGX except adding the required tag name into the virtual tag.
