The new EMpro energy measuring device product range is paving the way for the "Internet of Things" says Phoenix Contact. The energy data can be integrated into local networks with just a few simple commands from any browser through the integrated REST interface
Phoenix Contact states that "REpresentional State Transfer" is a user-friendly software architecture that uses all common Internet protocols, so no special knowledge of industrial communications protocols is needed. Additionally, versions with direct cloud connection allow users to have interaction with the devices from anywhere and at any time: which means that operators can access measurement and component data anywhere in the world without using an additional gateway. The information is stored, processed, and visualised in the cloud.
In addition, the new Phoenix Contact platform features smart services such as basic energy monitoring and device management: it can also monitor the state of health of the measuring devices. The range has been extended with devices with 24V DC supply, making it possible for users to separate power and control circuits in automation applications.
