The Beijer Electronics BoX2 is a series of protocol converters, IoT gateways and edge controllers that combine connectivity in different ways. The series is said to solve the challenge of finding smart ways to access data and bridge the gap between the worlds of industrial automation and IT. It makes information from a deep industrial level easily accessible in a structured, cloud-based data environment.

The series facilitates data exchange and transfers data securely to the cloud for remote access and analysis. It also allows users to create mobile solutions and add local control on the edge of the cloud to perform corrective measures on a machine. It is configured with smart ready-made functions to manage many scenarios, such as sharing data between PLCs of different makes; creating IoT solutions to store and access data in the cloud; presenting data on mobile devices via HTML5 screens and dashboards; integrating local CODESYS control; and adding smart functions such as local database storage, alarm servers, recipes, C# scripting, etc.

BoX2 is easily configured in WARP Engineering Studio where users interconnect machines and IT systems in the cloud. Smart local functions such as local database storage, alarm servers, data exchange, reporting and C# scripting are configured via Beijer’s iX software.

The series is available in base, pro and extreme versions and can operate in tough environments including electrical noise, large temperature spans and vibration.
