End-to-cloud IoT application software
Advantech has rounding out its IoT applications for the end-to-cloud with the recently launched WebAccess 8.2.
The latest version supports MQTT protocol and adds two new drivers – Ethernet/IP for Allen-Bradley PLC and B+B Wzzard MQTT – enabling manager/administrator/system integrator to integrate more on-site devices and upload the front-end data to the cloud.
In order to push product performance, Advantech has enhanced Dashboard performance in its latest new release to ensure stable and synchronous data transmission.
WebAccess provides network architecture, called Super SCADA, which is able to collect information from distributed nodes by its project upload tool, which simplifies centralised monitoring management, no matter how many layers users need to expand.
Its support of MQTT allows WebAccess 8.2 users to save network traffic costs and reduce the required network bandwidth. Through its lightweight transmission mode, WebAccess 8.2 is able to act as a gateway for large data collection, helping to successfully extend systems to cloud applications.
Unlike the traditional HMI/SCADA system, Advantech WebAccess is 100% Web-based SCADA software and provides cross-platform and cross-browser functionality and compatibility, various open interfaces, protocols and drivers, allowing users to develop projects and view or control automation equipment.
