4zerobox Bridges the Gap Between Industrial PLCs and IoT

4zerobox bridges the gap between industrial PLCs and IoT:

  • 4zerobox Bridges the Gap Between Industrial PLCs and IoTUsually when we talk about IoT here at Hackster, our focus is on consumer-level hardware and software.
  • But, there are many ways the industrial arena can benefit from IoT as well.4zerobox will officially support Python programmability via Zerynth.That’s what 4zerobox is setting out to do, by integrating the programmable logic controllers (PLCs) that are already common in industrial applications with modern IoT technology.
  • PLCs have been around for a long time, and they’re kind of like the Arduinos of the industrial world.
  • They are rugged computers that can be used in a wide variety of automation and control applications, and just about every manufacturing facility on the planet uses them in some way or another.4zerobox is based on the ESP32 SoC and features a pair of mikroBUS sockets for mikroElektronika clicks, including…
  • That data can then be sent to an IoT dashboard, which works similarly to home IoT systems.

4zerobox Bridges the Gap Between Industrial PLCs and IoTUsually when we talk about IoT here at Hackster, our focus is on consumer-level hardware and software. These are the systems that help you easily make your home smart, and which allow you to automate everyday tasks. The reason is simple: just about everyone has a home. But, there are many ways the industrial arena can benefit from IoT as well.4zerobox will officially support Python programmability via Zerynth.That’s what 4zerobox is setting out to do, by integrating the programmable logic controllers (PLCs) that are already common in industrial applications with modern IoT technology.

They are rugged computers that can be used in a wide variety of automation and control applications, and just about every manufacturing facility on the planet uses them in some way or another.4zerobox is based on the ESP32 SoC and features a pair of mikroBUS sockets for mikroElektronika clicks, including LoRA and secure IoT boards.The 4zerobox can take data from an existing PLC (or feed data to it) through a handful of common communication methods. Or, it can replace a traditional PLC completely. That data can then be sent to an IoT dashboard, which works similarly to home IoT systems. It can display the data, or allow users to control equipment. For ease of use, it’s programmed using Python, making it much simpler to setup control systems than with a normal PLC.It’s currently…
