One device – many functions

3G/UMTS mobile communications
Control (PLC)
Data Logger
User Interface
Fault warning device

The C360 combines many functions in one device, from an integrated 3G/UMTS modem to a programmable controller (PLC) with a graphic display and programmable keys as an user interface to a professional data logger and fault indicator. Powerful in communication thanks to numerous interfaces and protocols and almost unlimited expandable, it is the ideal device for demanding M2M and IoT applications.

Integrated mobile communication

The C360 has a 3G/UMTS modem with fallback to 2G/GPRS, bringing mobile communications directly into your applications. Easy to use for connection to all leading cloud platforms, as a fault indicator with SMS or voice with IVR (Interactive Voice Response) and DTMF or for communication with other C360s. High-level integration into the development environment (IDE) makes programming distributed applications as easy as programming a single PLC.

Performance and security for edge computing

The C360 is based on an RTOS real-time core with IEC 61131-3 runtime environment. The 32-bit ST Arm®processor provides more than enough power and memory for your edge-computing applications. AES encryption and a certificate management for all important TCP based protocols (e.g. MQTT, SMTP, TCP/IP Sockets) offer a high security for your communication, e.g. with a cloud.

I/O interfaces for all needs

The C360 has 8 digital inputs (4 of which can be configured as S0), 8 digital solid state outputs (36V / 1.5A), 4 flexibly configurable analog inputs and outputs each. The interface equipment is completely transparently expandable via Modbus modules for the user software and can be extended almost indefinitely.

Versatile communication

In addition to the mobile phone connection, the C360 has a large number of interfaces: CAN-2.0, RS-232, RS-485, 1-Wire and USB. For easy use of the interfaces, the development environment provides support for a variety of protocols such as TCP/IP, UDP, SMTP, FTP, MQTT, 1-Wire, M-Bus, Modbus (Master and Slave).
