How to Buy

This single, rugged, compact box combines the capabilities of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and SCADA systems into one integrated toolset that allows rapid, end-to-end deployment for all industrial monitoring and control requirements. Coupled with an on-board, web-based Automation Control Application, the Z45 brings alarms, reports and control to your web browser, mobile device, or existing SCADA infrastructure without the need for custom software development.

Automation Control is a software PLC type application based on an intuitive development environment. Monitoring and control applications are quickly deployed with a no-code, menu driven toolset that gets maintainable solutions to market faster and at a lower cost than legacy PLC approaches.

Z45 Industrial Controllers interface with a wide range of sensors to bring data seamlessly and quickly into the system for processing. Standard support includes current and voltage for analog data, wet and dry contacts, Modbus RTU and TCP, and other vendor specific protocols.

The Z45 controller securely and efficiently moves data over the network. The controllers are provisioned for use on domestic and international carriers, with Cellular, Ethernet and Wi-Fi communication options available. Whether the Z45 is operating as a communications device or as an application controller, SkyCloud is available to provide a detailed visualization of network, platform, and application operations. For specialized applications requiring custom coding the Z45 supports a downloadable cross compile development environment, a tested source distribution, and a fully documented tool chain.

AUTOMATION CONTROL — NO CODE, WEB-BASED LOGIC CONFIGURATION

The Z45 Automation Control Application offers the first platform where you can develop custom solutions to address complex problems without low level programming. Web-based configuration and solutions are developed on the controller, and automatically deploy from the controller to the cloud.

The no-code, rapid development software package allows for deployment of monitoring and control applications faster, and at a lower cost than legacy PLC toolsets.

“LANGUAGE-LESS PLATFORM”

No programming required. Our Automation Control platform allows you to address complex problems without low level programming.

COMPLEX FORMULAS AND LOGIC

Built-in function and logical operators give you PLC-like control at the edge with:
– Level thresholds with hysteresis
– Control and monitoring at set thresholds
– Custom alarms and messages

RAW DATA INTERFACES

“Plug and Play” functionality for standard data types including Pulse, Digital, Analog, MODBUS and more.

MANAGE FROM SKYCLOUD — LET DIGI STAND WATCH

SkyCloud provides a complete snapshot of your network and the equipment behind it. Know as much as you want, or as little as necessary, in order to make informed decisions. Sensor data is processed at the edge and passed to SkyCloud to offer a central point from which to manage all of your assets. See real-time actionable data with the ability to customize reports and alarms.

Digi eliminates the dependency on a server to perform network-wide control. Each endpoint is an autonomous endpoint capable of local monitoring and control. You are in control of the data and how it is used.
