December 11, 2014 - Crouzet Automation announces em4 nano-PLC Developed for customers specializing in small machine-to-machine technology looking for a means for connectivity of their installations, the em4 nano-PLC provides a totally integrated solution for integrators and OEMs (industry, infrastructure and buildings) that allows them to connect their devices via the internet on demand, without adding additional modules. The nano-PLC can be fully remotely controlled and allows customers easy expansion, making it suited for a variety of markets including water treatment, access control, building equipment, and small industrial machines.
The em4 series is comprised of the following:
- em4 remote: fully connected to the secure infrastructure
- em4 alert: capable of sending SMS or email alerts
- em4 local: designed for applications that do not require remote communication or require only a local area network
The em4 remote features the major advantage of being connected to the internet, thus offering programming, monitoring and control, and data logging functions that allow remote management of an application, a single machine or a fleet of machines. In terms of data exchange, em4 remote has no embedded web server, but operates on a machine-to-machine connection. This is essentially an exchange of raw data between the controller and the dedicated server. Communication is therefore optimized and the server's memory space is prioritized over the em4's embedded memory. Like its built-in communication capabilities, the em4 remote offers a complete solution including the nano-PLC, SIM card, data exchanges and remote access web and mobile platforms named em4 web and em4 app. The machines are then accessible at a single point on the server, in order to simplify the compilation of data. The "on-demand" server connection can also be used to locate a faulty installation. It is equally possible to benefit from geo-location. All this plus numerous possibilities for managing events, datalog or alarms.
em4 lab environment is similar to a "toolbox" that includes all tools, services and partners. It allows customers to reinvent their applications and thus generate new business opportunities..em4 lab meets the needs of both OEMs and their customers who wish to manage several machines as a fleet through a number of tools such as: the em4 soft and Millenium 3 software, offering the ability to program all communication directly in a unique software solution, simply and in graphic form; or the em4 web, to manage users, devices, data and applications remotely.
