New functions through update for Edge PC

18 July 2022

To transfer information from the local network to a cloud solution, Phoenix Contact completes its IIoT solution with firmware update 2022.0 for the EPC 1502 and EPC 1522 Edge PCs.

The Edge device’s extended functionalities are said to provide full IT/OT convergence, offering a monitoring solution or data analysis that enables data interpretation through simple dashboards.

Specifically, the firmware expands the interface functions. A wireless Internet connection via WLAN can now be easily configured, and a visualization can be realised cost-effectively via the DisplayPort. Node-RED, InfluxDB Chronograf, or Docker are administered locally. By updating all pre-installed Edge software and pre-installed packages, an exchange of variables between PLCnext Engineer and Node-RED is solved in a user-friendly way. Similarly, storing large data sets in the local database and transferring them to a cloud solution has been simplified.
