A company that provides remote monitoring and control systems based on wireless sensor networks and industrial monitoring equipment with applications in areas such as processes control in industry, automated metering or environmental monitoring has released MPC-330 data concentrator. In a statement from the ADVANTICSYS and as part of the continuous improvement of products and services Advanticsys provides within its catalog, the evolution of best-selling MPC-330 data concentrator is released today by Advanticsys. According to the release statement, this enhancement converts MPC-330 into a truly industrial gateway bridging the gap between industry and Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm.
According to José J. de las Heras, CEO & Co-Founder at Advantic Sistemas y Servicios “For some years, IoT is spreading throughout our world, from our smartphones to even our appliances. However, its penetration in the industry is limited due to the lack of compatibility between legacy systems and new protocols. Now, Advanticsys adds to its Modbus data concentrator the ability to easily integrate into any IoT software platform using the Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol”.
MQTT is a light-weight M2M (Machine-to-Machine) connectivity protocol able to send data in messages with very low bandwidth requitements.
Within this protocol, three main components can be found:
- MQTT Broker: is the central element able to receive and forward data.
- MQTT Publisher: is the data generator. In our case, MPC-330 plays this role.
- MQTT Subscriber: within this architecture, it represents any hardware, software or even physical person consuming those data.
