IceBlock enables unprecedented flexibity
The industry’s full transition to the new generation Industry 4.0 automation systems is on going and needs smart solutions to accelerate adoption. IceBlock distributed PLC platform is a key to enhance existing equipment with distributed intelligent control already today. It is an ultimate future-proof solution that supports seamless transition to Industry 4.0
IceBlock is a intelligent wireless dnode for Indsutry 4.0
IceBlock nano-PLC is a powerful yet tiny and cost-effective node in the Internet of Machines. It can control intelligent mechatronic components collaborating with other such components wirelessly. It talks with other nodes peer-to-peer via the Internet Protocol, thus avoiding the plethora of obsolete field buses.
IceBlock exists in the standard 4xInputs, 4xOutputs configuration, but can also be customised to particular interfaces of mechatronic devices. IceBlock is powered by the most powerful implementation of IEC 61499 standard provided by NxtControl
