rapidM2M C3

Control + data logger + transmission + platform with fully integrated operation

The rapidM2M C3 is the ideal component for remote control, automation and control tasks in the control cabinet. Demo IoT apps give the hardware its intelligence and allow the user easy configuration and convenient operation. The IoT app “myDataconC3” is preinstalled by default. Alternatively, own IoT Apps can be programmed.

Data from analogue sensors and signal transmitters are acquired via the universal inputs. The RS232, RS485 and CAN interfaces enable communication with machines, control units or sensors with digital interfaces. Control tasks and remote control are realised with the relay outputs.

Choice of demo IoT apps

Demo IoT apps are available for numerous applications. Use the demo IoT apps, configure the rapidM2M C3 according to your needs and get to know the system and its functions. The development of own IoT apps via the rapidM2M Studio is also possible.
rapidM2M C3 - All in One SPS, Router, Firewall

All-in-One

PLC, router, firewall and data transmission to the web platform are all integrated and solved in the rapidM2M C3. Due to the coordinated overall system, process-related requirements are already implemented and the integration of the solution is minimal.

IoT im Schaltschrank

Industrial interfaces

The rapidM2M C3 has remotely configurable interfaces - universal input (4-20mA), RS232, RS485, CAN. This ensures the greatest flexibility. The device is perfectly applicable in automation, control and remote action. The two relays are individually configurable. Sensors can be integrated in a few minutes.

rapidM2M C3 extension

Extension modules for even more freedom

With the extension module rapidM2M C3e 12UI/2Rel, the base unit gets another twelve universal inputs as well as two potential-free switching contacts for controlling actuators. The output extension rapidM2M C3e 3mA/6Rel adds three analogue outputs and six relays.

For solution experts from the industry

Create your remote control/monitoring/alarming

Solution experts watch out! The rapidM2M Industrial Onboarding makes your start into the IoT world easier. For one day, you will receive the support and know-how of experts with many years of experience and get to know a compact, freely programmable device for the acquisition, processing and transmission of signals. As a special highlight, the device, the rapidM2M C33x WIFI/4G EU, is yours at the end of the onboarding.

Central management

Integrated platform

The rapidM2M C3 is fully integrated into the IoT platform without any additional effort. Create alerts, dashboards and reports in minutes. Updates to firmware, applications and configurations are conveniently carried out remotely via the web login – without having to travel to the unit.

Configurations are stored in the IoT app like blueprints. This reduces the commissioning time and the susceptibility to errors with several similar installations.

Integration into further systems can be quickly implemented via web interfaces such as RESTful API or OPC-UA. The integrator can work freely via the development studio and adapt everything to his needs.

Modbus RTU/ASCII

Microtronics Modbus Master Library

The Modbus master library currently supports the master mode for serial interfaces (RS232 and RS485) and is characterised by its universal applicability. In addition, great importance was attached to easy integration into own projects during the development. In addition, the complete source code is available in the rapidM2M Studio. The data transmission can be carried out either in the efficient Modbus-RTU or alternatively in the Modbus-ASCII format. You can find out more here.

UI Trigger for rapidM2M C330

The important feature for rapidM2M C3

The UI Trigger functionality provides the possibility to evaluate analog signals acquired via the UI channels with high sampling frequency (up to 1kHz) and to compress them according to the configuration. Read more on the blog UI Trigger für rapidM2M C330.

The demo IoT app C3xx 1UI/1Rel as a simple example

First steps with the rapidM2M C3

The demo IoT app “C3xx 1UI/1Rel Demo” collects data via a sensor connected to the universal channel. A relay can be switched via the server interface. The demo IoT app includes a simple user interface for configuring and displaying the data on the smartphone.

Read more about the simple test setup, commissioning & the web interface in the blog.

Demo-IoT-Apps

Discover the potential of your IoT solution

With the demo IoT apps provided, you can explore the possibilities of the rapidM2M C3 without programming. Get to know the hardware as well as the platform in a few steps with just a few clicks.

The demo IoT app myDataconC3 maps the requirements of a universal data logger. With the demo IoT app myDataconC3 39UI/8Rel you can dive into the world of expansion modules. Connect up to three rapidM2M C3e 12UI/2Rel expansion modules to your rapidM2M C3 to expand the inputs and relays for your IoT solution accordingly.
