sysWORXX CTR-700

Edge-Controller & IoT-Gateway for Predictive Maintenance & Condition Monitoring

Programmable in the language of your employees

Predictive Maintenance & Condition Monitoring

In future industrial communication will depend on functionalities such as condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. It ensures process optimization through data acquisition and afterwards cost optimization through process optimization.

The new control system of SYS TEC electronic is developed among others for these applications. In addition to numerous interfaces, such as industrial inputs and outputs, TCP / IP, MQTT, Modbus, CANopen, USB and μSD, the controller contains two Ethernet interfaces. This ensures the separation of Enterprise IT and Shop Floor OT.


CTR-700 speaks the language of your employees

The special feature of the sysWORXX CTR-700 is the software. It can be programmed via IEC 61131-3 as well as in various IoT languages ​​(C#/.Net, Node-RED, Java, Python). Thus it is not necessary to require an expensive external service. The controller speaks the language of the employees.

Programming Languages

  •  C#/.Net
  •  Node-RED
  •  Java
  •  Python

Further Languages/Interfaces/Protocols

  • MQTT
  • OPC UA
  • OpenPCS
  • C/C++
  • SD
  • CANopen
  • Modbus
  • TCP/IP


  • Support of modern high-level languages
    • Simultaneous execution of IEC 61131-3 PLC programs and other Linux applications
  • Two independent EthernetInterfaces allow strict and secure separation of Enterprise IT and Shop floor OT
  • Use of higherlayer protocols as CANopen (incl. CANopen-Manager-Service an easy integration of other CANopen modules)
  • Support of communication and data exchange with other devices via Modbus protocols by extended Modbus/TCP function blocks​​
  • Backplane expansion bus, shielded between the module underside and the DIN rail
  • Suitable for DIN rail mounting

Mesh nets with Wirepas

Via the backplane extension bus, the sysWORXX CTR-700 can be easily integrated into mesh networks using our extension module sysWORXX SRN-GW1. We use our partner software for this solution - Wirepas Connectivity. The sysWORXX SRN-GW1 enables the sysWORXX CTR-700 to communicate with mesh networks.

Wirepas Connectivity Software provides a connectivity solution optimized for performance, bandwidth, range and latency. The technology is hardware-independent - the protocol runs on every wireless chip. The Mesh net solution allows customers to run the network on batteries for up to 15 years. With this MeshNet solution, they are able to flexibly optimize the connection solution for the application in terms of performance, bandwidth, range and latency.

Remote Access and Remote Control with TeamViewer IoT

With the new TeamViewer IoT-integration for our sysWORXX CTR-700 you can now access your devices and make any necessary adjustments from anywhere and at any time. No matter, if you are at home, on the road or simply at a different spot with your office building.

All TeamViewer versions use full encryption. Encryption is based on 2048bit RSA private/public key exchange and 256 Bit AES session encoding. This uses the same security level as https/SSL and is considered completely safe by today's standards. The key exchange also guarantees that the data transfer is completely encoded from client to client and that any routers or servers in between (including our routers) are unable to read or analyze the data stream. Security and privacy have always been a top priority during development:
