echocollect r/m offers as an industrial multiprotocol gateway a modern solution for the further processing of process data. The addition “r” in the product name stands for RS232, since the gateway supports three of these interfaces for serial connection to PLCs. The addition “m” in the product name stands for MPI, as the gateway is specially equipped for connection to SIMATIC S5 and S7 controllers with three TTY and two MPI interfaces. echocollect r/m supports local data logging and enables bidirectional real-time connection between controllers and databases, direct OPC UA integration and cloud connection via the MQTT interface.
The advantage of the NetCon configuration software is the high degree of customization options at protocol level.
As basic functionality, five PLC connections and MySQL as database driver are available. Extension licenses are available for the use of MQTT, OPC UA, data logging to SD card (including Store&Forward), support for 15 PLC connections and other databases such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL.
