The reliability is a Siemens standard but now they have simplicity with the SIMATIC IOT2000 series. The industrial gateway of choice in factories and institutions exploring the SIMATIC IOT2000 series harmonizes, analyzes, and forwards data efficiently with common protocols like MQTT and Modbus. Based on a Yocto Linux, the SIMATIC IOT2000 series includes the IoT2020 and IoT2040 models which can manage its own automation systems. This incredible gateway harmonizes the communication between various data sources effectively over long distances and in electrically noisy environments, analyses it, and forwards it to the corresponding recipients, offering a solution that can be easily implemented and perfect for retrofitting.
Available in two versions, the IoT 2020 designed for educational institutions and public spaces while the IoT 2040 is optimized for Industrial environments. If you'd like to learn more check out the SIMATIC IOT 2000 support and forums.
In this guide we detail the integration of the Siemens SIMATIC IOT 2000 with Ubidots, using an external device serial communicated through RS-485 interface with the SIMATIC IOT 2000 and configuring a flow in Node-RED to transmit the data obtained to Ubidots over MQTT.
