Bring your Modbus automation devices to the Internet of Things!

Now you can bring your Modbus automation devices to the Internet of Things!!

Cimetrics is happy to announce its T6130 kit and T6131 module

based on Lantronix Pico/Xport. They are designed to bring Modbus automation devices into the Internet of Things. They provide turnkey connectivity to the PTC Thingworx Internet of Things ecosystem, thus enabling PTC's PLM and SLM offerings, and Cimetrics Analytika offerings, for small to midsized enterprises.

Overview of Lantronix XPort and xPico:

Build Serial to Ethernet Connectivity and Control into Your Products, Quickly and Simply

XPort is a compact, integrated solution to web enable virtually any device with serial capability. By incorporating XPort to a product design, manufacturers can quickly and easily offer serial to Ethernet networking capability as a standard feature — so equipment can be accessed and controlled over the Internet.

Full Networking in a Tiny Package

XPort embedded Ethernet device server removes the complexity – of designing network connectivity into a product by incorporating all of the required hardware and software inside a single embedded Ethernet solution. 
Smaller than your thumb, it includes all essential networking features, including a 10Base- T/100Base-TX 
Ethernet connection, proven operating system, an embedded web server, a full TCP/IP protocol stack, and 256-bit AES encryption for secure communications. This easy-to-embed networking processor module enables engineers to focus on their core competency while reducing development time and cost and increasing product value.

Integrated Network Communications Module

XPort is powered by a DSTni network processor SoC, which includes a 10/100 MAC/PHY and 256 KB of SRAM. 
It features a built-in web server for communications with a device via a standard Internet browser. 
Web capability can be used for remote configuration, real-time monitoring or troubleshooting. 
XPort has 512 KB of onmodule Flash. It acts as a dedicated co-processor that optimizes network activities permitting the host microprocessor to function at maximum efficiency.
