Conventional manufacturing is undergoing a massive transformation, and so is customer demand and expectation. Today’s connected smart factory is a giant leap from its traditional avatar, in almost real time it is expected to integrate operations technology with information technology. It is expected to extract data from connected operations and production systems by converging the physical and digital world. By integrating customer demand with broader supply network, a smart factory would leverage multiple mandates to accelerate speed and fulfillment.
In Industry 4.0, devices, people, machines, sensors, suppliers and customers communicate in a flexible and decentralized way with a common principle: interoperability.
AGATEL products are designed in order to simplify and standardize the way different protocols and devices get together on the shop floor. For network integration, AGATEL’s Protocol Gateways provide easy, reliable and cost-effective solutions for multi-protocol networks. Along with AGATEL’s smart communication devices that enable almost every field device to gain different protocol capability, with advanced additional features such as ERPS, RSTP and MRP Ring, QoS management, VLAN management, Link aggregation and port trunking (if required) as well as Layer-3 static and dynamic routing.
Agatel’s offering for Industrial Automation
Interoperability: AGATEL Protocol Gateway and industrial communication devices simplify connectivity, make older equipment blend with new, provide data conversion among industrial protocols to ensure compatibility of various devices. Modbus, Profinet, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, MQTT and OPC UA are no longer an obstacle, but an opportunity to take the best from each technology.
Security: AGATEL hardware features security solutions to provide seamless security and encryption: MACsec for security over LANs; IPsec, OpenVPN and PPTP for security over WANs and the Internet is embedded in all advanced products.
Reliability: With MTBF of up to 25 years, AGATEL’s range of hardware is built to minimize downtime events. Built-in redundancy features such as ERPS Ring, RSTP, DLR and Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) ensure ideal upkeep times.
Environment: AGATEL’s line of hardware is designed to withstand the harshest of environments. By supporting temperatures from range of -40°C to +85°C,
our hardware uses industrial-grade materials to guarantee also a long MTBF. And, because our devices feature fanless designs to reduce the number of moving parts, breakdowns and failures are reduced, thereby prolonging the operational lifetime of your investment.
EMI/EMS: AGATEL’s hardware conforms to high EMS and EMI standards, such as UL61010-2-101, UL60950-1, UL/EN/IEC62368 and EN61000-6-2 and
