MTX in Automaticon with our distributor in Poland, Maritex

Automaticon 2020, the most important Industrial Automation fair in Poland with influence throughout the Eastern European area, is held in mid-May, which expects about 9,500 professionals from one of the most booming sectors in IoT . The XXI edition will be held in the capital of Poland, Warsaw, with 276 exhibitors and 490 companies represented.

This year, we visit Automaticon for the first time with our distributor in Poland, Maritex, with whom we will share space at stand D-17. Our International Business Developer will be supporting our Maritex colleagues and answering the questions of those interested in our devices. MTX modems, routers and gateways are manufactured in Europe and specially focused on providing solutions to system integrators in the Industrial Automation sector, covering many applications.

In MTX we not only have hardware solutions but we are also able to provide integral solutions that range from sensors to the IoT platform necessary to control devices, analyze the received data and store it. We are also able to create customized solutions for specific projects thanks to our R&D team.

As an example of the application of one of our devices, in this CASE STUDY you can read more about a conveyor belt monitoring solution for the Industrial Automation sector with our competitive MTX-IoT-S modem with 8 digital inputs and outputs and 2 ADC, in addition to our Cervello IoT platform.

If you have not already done so, register HERE to attend Automaticon, and don’t forget to visit stand D-17, where MTX will be next to Maritex.

Which MTX modem is the one you need for your IoT solution?

MTX has different IoT modems that adapt to different solutions with different requirements and needs. From the large number of inputs and outputs of the MTX-IoT-S, to the basic MTX-Java-T and MTX-Java-T2, through the modular and adaptable MTX-Java-IoT. Discover at a single glance which of our IoT modems is best suited for your needs. Download the comparative document here.

ALL MTX MODEMS ARE COMPATIBLE WITH THE MTX-TUNNEL SOFTWARE AND THE CERVELLO IOT PLATFORM.

 

Case Study: Industrial Cold Unit Monitoring

In an increasingly global industrial sector, companies dedicated to the installation of Industrial Cold units tend to sell their products worldwide and it is increasingly essential to have a remote monitoring, support and technical assistance system that allows to alleviate the costs derived from breakdowns. Thanks to our MTX-Java-T, together with Cervello IoT Platform and a PLC, this solution is possible.

New commercial and technical headquarters in Taiwan for the APAC area

At MTX we always have an eye on the future and the international market. That is why we very enthusiastically announce the opening of a new international headquarters in Taiwan, where our partners Aaron and Tim will be in charge of commercial management and technical support for the APAC (Asia-Pacific) area, which covers the areas of Eastern Asia, Southeast Asia and Oceania. Thanks to this new opening we hope to increase the volume of business and the service provided in countries such as China, Indonesia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Thailand or Vietnam, which will be able to more easily access IoT solutions with our innovative and powerful MTX devices (routers, modems and gateways) and the Cervello IoT platform.

We begin this new stage with enthusiasm and much expectation. Welcome to the MTX team, Aaron and Tim!

 

New modem MTX-IoT-S with 8x digital I/O and 2x ADC

The new MTX-IoT-S is a 4G (LTE), 3G and 2G modem programmable in Java and characterized by its 8 digital inputs/outputs and 2 ADCs that convert analog signal to digital (at 4-20mA). In addition, it includes other interfaces such as RS232 and RS485, relay, USB 2.0, possibility of working in Ultra Low Power mode, backup battery, etc. All this, together with the option of adding GPS or RF communications through its expansion port, make it a benchmark in its segment, both in terms of capacity and power, as well as the number and variety of interfaces. MTX-IoT-S is fully compatible with Cervello IoT Platform and with MTX-Tunnel, which makes it a powerful gateway without the need of further programming skills.

What can I do with the new MTX-IoT-S?

Sending alarms by SMS or voice call

MTX-IoT-S is able to send alarms by SMS or voice call with changes in the devices connected to any of its 8 digital inputs.

Sending telemetry up to 8 digital inputs

MTX-IoT-S can send real-time measurements from up to 8 digital inputs via MQTT to, for example, Cervello IoT platform.

Remote management of up to 8 relays or digital outputs

MTX-IoT-S allows you to remotely manage via MQTT, Telnet, SMS or voice call up to 8 relays or digital outputs.

Automatic activation of relays/digital outputs based on the Modbus registers collected

MTX-IoT-S is capable of automatically activating or deactivating up to 8 relays or digital outputs depending on the Modbus registers collected. In addition, you can automatically notify this status change to the Cervello IoT platform using MQTT.

All this examples add up to everything you can already do with MTX-IoT, MTX-Java-T and MTX-Java-T2.

Case Study: Conveyor Belt Monitoring

In a smart environment of management, control and industrial automation, one of the key elements to anticipate failures and increase productivity is to be able to monitor the status and use of conveyor belts of any kind of sector, whether it is for logistics or manufacturing. Thanks to the data obtained, the behavior of the belts can be studied (dilatation, deterioration, irregular advance…) thus creating patterns that allow to detect failures in the process. This way, it is possible to optimize the maintenance of the conveyor belts, increasing productivity and reducing the problems arising from the wear and tear of the machines.
