Linux-based condition monitoring platform

23 August 2021

Turck has introduced a compact DIN-rail control center for collecting, processing and forwarding condition data to IIoT. It can be configured for specific OEM requirements.

The IM18-CCM50 is a compact condition monitoring control center for simple installation in the control cabinet. It enables the use of both the information of the integrated sensors for measuring door position, humidity and temperature, as well as the data from external sensors and measuring devices, which can be integrated via analogue and digital interfaces. 

Besides two analogue inputs (mA or V) the module offers two digital inputs/outputs as well as a relay output for tasks such as the control of signal lights and a USB 2.0 Host for connecting a mass storage memory or a wireless adapter. An add-on interface allows other devices to be connected for current measurement for 12 AC channels with up 600 A. The data transfer and power supply of the IM18-CCM modules is implemented via the backplane.

This range of functions is said to make the platform suitable for machine and plant builders wishing to offer their customers advanced condition monitoring functions. This therefore makes it possible to also implement remote maintenance during operation via the OEM right through to the control cabinet of the user. The open Linux operating system is optimised for the installation of custom analysis programs. With its two independent Ethernet interfaces, the IM18-CCM provides an effortless connection between the OT and IT world. The device uses the TCP/IP, Modbus TCP and HTTP communication protocols. Other Ethernet-based protocols can be installed at any time.
