As of now, HMS' Netbiter Remote Management solution, apart from the connectivity to Modbus devices, also offers direct, onboard compatibility with EtherNet/IP. Via the LAN port on theNetbiter Gateway, users can connect via UCMM (UnConnected Message Manager) which is an acyclic messaging channel separate from the control loop messaging.
The user connects an EtherNet/IP-based automation device to a Netbiter gateway via the LAN port. The gateway sends data via Ethernet or the cellular network to the cloud-based data center called Netbiter Argos. Users access Netbiter Argos at www.netbiter.net using a regular web browser. They can also set up a secure tunnel to the remote machine or equipment which enables commissioning and debugging just as if they were on site.
Other included features are the ability to group and filter alarms as well asfree access to map functionality showing the exact location of each Netbiter gateway.
