    Internet of things is a concept that has been around for several years with the idea to make ‘things’ communicate with each other so that they become more intelligent and functional. Many companies have begun to transform their components in such a way that makes them capable of sharing information with other components. They are able to integrate with more complex systems to make the entire automation system more efficient and ‘intelligent’. In order to achieve this, these components must be capable of speaking to each other. However this cannot be done just by using a connection infrastructure such as Ethernet. What is needed is that the various components speak the same language. This is where OPC UA technology plays a fundamental role and it is this technology that Progea has embraced. The new Movicon.NExT platform demonstrates this with its data information model based on the OPC UA standards to comply with Industry 4.0 and IoT concepts. Within this context, Microsoft, who has an estimated potential of 9 billion micro devices in all industrial and consumer sectors, has released Windows 10 IoT operating system designed to run on micro devices such as Raspberry PI 2. This Microsoft operating system is free of charge and provides the essential requirements needed for running Apps that are capable of managing graphics, logic and communication stacks. Progea is continuously focused on the scalability of its platforms, and foresees a future of Micro-HMI capable of using low-end peripheral systems. Progea is committed to maintain the design engineering concept of the Movicon.NExT technology to support a wide range of devices from embedded controllers to enterprise servers.. The application presented at the SPS Nuremburg 2015 tradefair is an example of this. This application was designed to be used with a Raspberry PI 2 card, Windows 10 IoT Operating System and the Movicon.NExT IoT runtime. On this occasion it was showcased to demonstrate how to run a project application designed for a thermoregulation, visualization and control system.

    After Yaskawa acquired the majority shares of VIPA in 2013, VIPA, an OEM Progea partner, started to introduce the Yaskawa devices in its new range of products by offering a complete PLC, I/O remote, HMI, Drive and Motion package.  
    
    Thereafter, Progea got to work developing a native driver for the Yaskawa devices to permit highly efficient connectivity between devices that are reliable, high-performing and capable of drastically reducing development times. 
    
    The already wide ranging Movicon 11.4 driver library has therefore been further enriched with the new “Yaskawa MP IEC Modbus” communication driver.   This driver permits communication with the Yaskawa motion controllers from the MPIEC series and the server devices that support the Modbus/TCP communication protocol.
    
    The driver offers the possibility to insert the data addresses in two formats: the classical Modbus format and the Yaskawa format. The driver automatically validates and converts the Yaskawa address to the Modbus address.  The variable import file is the same as for the "Modbus TCP/IP" driver.

    In recent years, more and more companies are creating policies that allow employees to use their personal devices at work (commonly known as BYOD). With the increase of automation in manufacturing, the ability for employees to monitor and respond via their personal mobile device is an added convenience which can increase productivity and response time. To harness the benefits of using personal devices at work, Progea's MoviconTM web client allows users to turn their iPhone, iPad or Android into an engineering tool and operational dashboard. After logging on, all of the employee's work and all intellectual property remains securely on the server side, not on the employee's personal device. Movicon Web Client uses a thin client, enabling the entire application to reside and be processed on the server. This centralizes information for easy and low cost system management and maintenance. Users who choose to receive event notifications by phone, can connect immediately to their plant system to get information on tags, alarms, historicals and even display and with proper authentication can interact with screens from anywhere, anytime. As seen below, the graphical screen representations are shown in their ‘true colors’ and graphics are automatically adjusted to the client’s resolutions or to the size of the browser window. Download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play today!
