Digital transformation has become a necessary path for the development of the manufacturing industry. To improve manufacturing, it is necessary to improve the efficiency of collecting, processing, and utilizing data in all aspects of production operation. With the development of industrial enterprise information technology, factory operations will generate more and more industrial data. In addition, factory internal management is also accompanied by a large amount of CRM information, and the scope of data to be collected and managed is expanding. Traditional WiFi and wired data collection can no longer adapt to the increasing demands of the industrial Internet.
The current industrial data collection still has various shortcomings, including complex data sources, equipment models, diversified interfaces, unified protocols, etc. Now it is possible to use the 5G industrial intelligent gateway with powerful device access, communication protocol conversion capability, data communication capability, and linkage control capability. Digitalization and wisdom will be used to upgrade industrial manufacturing.
Pain points facing industrial data collection
1. The format, standard, and interface of data are not the same, and the phenomenon of data silo exists.
2. The traditional mode of manual collection, separate collection, and layer-by-layer aggregation makes data collection links and processes long, leading to the existence of data lag and difficulty in mining logic and value between data
3. There are many types of equipment and diverse data, including equipment status data, production process data, safety data, inspection data and operation management data, etc.
Advantages of the 5G Industrial Smart Gateway
AR7091 is an industrial IoT gateway/CPE developed based on 5G/4G/3G/2G, WIFI, virtual private network, etc. It adopts a high-performance industrial-grade 32-bit communication processor and industrial-grade wireless module with the embedded operating system as a software support platform and supports 1 Gigabit Ethernet WAN, 4 Gigabit Ethernet LAN, 1 RS232/RS485 (optional) interface, and 2.4G/5.8G WIFI interface. It supports 1 Gigabit Ethernet WAN, 4 Gigabit Ethernet LAN, 1 RS232/RS485 (optional) interface, and 2.4G/5.8G WIFI interface, which can connect serial devices, Ethernet devices, and WIFI devices at the same time to meet the needs of industrial field communication.
