ICP DAS introduces WISE-5231 IoT Controller

February 22, 2016 - ICP DAS introduces WISE-5231 IoT Controller that allows connection to XV-board, remote I/O modules and Modbus TCP/RTU Slave modules at the same time. It  works as a control unit for use in remote logic control and monitoring in various industrial applications.

WISE offers a user-friendly and intuitive web site interface that allows users to implement the IF-THEN-ELSE control logic on controllers just a few clicks away; no programming is required. With its easy-to-use features, it can minimize the learning curve, shorten time to market and dramatically reduce system development costs.

WISE-5231 also offers data logger function to record the I/O channel data by periodic cycle or event trigger. It can also send data files to the control center via FTP. In addition to the CGI command sending function, WISE-5231 now supports the CGI command receiving function as well that allows the devices (such as IP camera) to trigger the operation of logic rule of WISE-5231. CGI command functions make WISE-5231 able to interact with the devices flexibly in the Network environment. WISE-5231 supports various communication protocols to perform real-time I/O channel data monitoring and control. The Modbus TCP/RTU protocol of WISE allows sharing I/O channel data with the SCADA system. WISE-5231 also supports the SNMP and MQTT protocol for easy integration with the MIS, MES (Manufacturing Execution System), Facility Management, Network Management and IT systems.

WISE-5231 can be used in various applications such as building automation, machine monitoring and control, facility management, factory automation, remote maintenance and diagnosis, and environmental monitoring. It can log data, send out Emails to users and seamlessly integrate with SCADA systems.


  • WISE provides user-friendly Web UI pages for editing control logic on the controllers. To edit control logic, it only requires a browser to connect to WISE. No extra software tool installation is needed. WISE enables implementation of logic edition by a few clicks on the mouse to set up and deploy logic rules without writing a single line of code.
  • WISE features an IF-THEN-ELSE logic rule engine; it offers IF-THEN-ELSE rules for users to set up the logic content. After completing rule edition and downloading rules to the WISE, the rule engine will loop execute the rules in accordance with the execution order under specific conditions.
  • WISE allows connection with sensors and devices that support Modbus TCP/RTU protocol. The ability to connect with Modbus TCP/RTU slave devices enables the flexibility and scalability for system implementation and allows to meet various requirements of the applications from the clients.
  • WISE features Timer and Schedule functions: It allows user to schedule specific date or time for control logic execution, or perform specific tasks such as time delay. With calendar user interface provided, Schedule setting can be more efficient and flexible.
  • WISE supports full CGI command operations - CGI command sending and CGI command receiving. The CGI command sending action can be added to the logic edition as part of logic control in response to specific events. The CGI command receiving function enables WISE to receive the CGI commands from others network devices. The content of CGI command received can be used in IF condition statements to trigger the THEN/ELSE actions.
  • WISE supports SSL Email sending function for real-time message notification operation. The message sending action can be added to the logic edition as part of logic control to provide real-time message notification to the related personnel when an event occurs.
  • With the microSD card, WISE provides Data Logger function to real-time record the I/O channel data of the controller and sends the data files automatically by FTP to the control center for further administration management or data analysis.
  • In addition to the Modbus TCP/RTU slave function that enables SCADA system to poll the I/O channel data of the WISE, now WISE provides “Active I/O sending” mechanism (Modbus TCP master, SNMP Trap and MQTT publish). Based on the “Active I/O sending”, WISE allows to send the I/O channel data of the controller actively to SCADA/IT system by event trigger or periodic cycle. This function will improve the efficiency of the data communication between WISE and SCADA/IT system.
  • WISE supports various SCADA/IT/IoT communication protocols to perform real-time monitoring and control of the controllers, and easy integration with the SCADA/MIS/MES/Facility management /Network management systems.
