Advantech UNO-1251G – Industrial Internet-of-Things -IoT- Gateway With CAN Bus Port

Advantech’s UNO-1251G is a DIN-rail mountable IoT gateway industrial computer that features a programmable OLED display, wireless communication slot, and built in CAN Bus. It supports over 450 programmable logic controllers (PLCs), controllers, and input/output (I/O) device protocols with WebAccess/human-machine interface (HMI) software. With an integrated CAN Bus (Controller Area Network) connecter, the UNO-1251G is especially suitable for networking intelligent I/O devices such as sensors and actuators. To aid in the development of CAN Bus applications, the UNO-1251G includes the Advantech CANopen protocol library, which provides a C application programming interface (API) to use, configure, start, and monitor CANopen devices.

The UNO-1251G has been designed to be operated remotely from any computer or table with a virtual network computer (VNC) client installed and engineers can remotely access the UNO-1251G for diagnosis and control from wherever they are located. Through WebAccess, it helps move from proprietary systems to an open architecture and eases the integration of different devices. The programming OLED display provides operators with intuitive system status messages. It comes with a range of default messages but is also able to be programmed using the OLED display API by site engineers so specific messages can be shown.

A Comprehensible Guide to Controller Area Network by Wilfried VossA Comprehensible Guide to Controller Area Network by Wilfried Voss represents the most thoroughly researched and most complete work on CAN available in the marketplace.

Controller Area Network (CAN) is a serial network technology that was originally designed for the automotive industry, especially for European cars, but has also become a popular bus in industrial automation as well as other applications. The CAN bus is primarily used in embedded systems, and as its name implies, is a network technology that provides fast communication among microcontrollers up to real-time requirements, eliminating the need for the much more expensive and complex technology of a Dual-Ported RAM.

 This book provides complete information on all CAN features and aspects combined with a high level of readability.
