Machine 2 Machine (M2M)
A Connected World
Machine 2 Machine refers to technologies that allow both wireless and wired systems to communicate with other devices of the same ability. M2M uses a device (such as a sensor or meter) to capture an event (such as temperature, inventory level, etc.), which is relayed through a network (wireless, wired or hybrid) to an application (software program), that translates the captured event into meaningful information.
Modern Machine 2 Machine communication has expanded beyond a one-to-one connection and changed into a system of networks that transmits data to personal appliances. The expansion of IP networks across the world has made it far easier for M2M communication to take place and has lessened the amount of power and time necessary for information to be communicated between machines.
Features and Benefits
|Wireless and wired systems||M2M refers to technologies that allow both wireless and wired systems to communicate with other devices of the same ability.|
|No Master station required||The M2M product is a Machine to Machine solution using the Adroit SCADA and the Mitsubishi FX/L/Q series PLC’s for both control and data acquisition.|
|No Fixed IP necessary||No Fixed IP necessary on GPRS network. PLC is the master and responsible for initiating communications|
|Control and manage data||Manage data costs through statistical device transmission data. Process data can be dead-banded at PLC – control and manage the amount of data transmitted|
|Efficient communications||The M2M offers efficient communications with cost effective data transfer costs. The PLC can be configured to send data on a time interval, when storage buffer limits are reached or manually polled|
|Full telemetry management||Full telemetry management from SCADA – no loss of data. Link management – alarm if comms link goes down|
|Real time data||Event and Alarm data is transmitted to the SCADA immediately. Communications can be set to live mode which will show real time data as the site changes.|
|M2M function block||The M2M function block has been written that in the case of communication failure to the Adroit Agent Server, the data will be time stamped and stored within the PLC buffer. Buffers are all FIFO and circular. Auto empty of historical buffer (25%, 50%, 75% and 100%)|
The M2M product is a Machine to Machine solution using the Adroit SCADA and the Mitsubishi Electric FX/L/Q series PLCs for both control and data acquisition. An optimised internet-enabled communication platform for a hosted solution.
