Small, compact and with integrated Wi-Fi -
that is our sysWORXX CTR-500
The smart gateway solution
The sysWORXX CTR-500 is a freely programmable Linux module for industrial applications. It is used as fieldbus gateway, edge controller and compact controller.
Fast, compact and powerful like its big brother, the CTR-700, it supports easy application development with the low-code environment Node-RED in a very short time. The CTR-500 can also be programmed as a PLC in IEC 61131-3 using the OpenPCS programming environment.
In addition, the CTR-500 supports common high-level programming languages from C/C++, to Rust, C# (Mono), Java and Python. Using standard protocols such as MQTT and REST, the CTR module is ready for use with all major cloud providers.
We take IT and OT binding to a new level.
Scalable in functionality and interfaces, the sysWORXX CTR-500 is a multi-talent in the smallest of spaces. On the hardware side, the module is prepared as a sink node for wirepas massive pure mesh connectivity.
In addition, the controller can be used as an IoT coupler, e.g. as a translator between different protocols such as MQTT, Modbus and CANopen.
- individual scalability in series: assembly and design options, white and brand label
- high field and radio connectivity in a small space
- freely programmable controller for automation and digitization equipped with open source software
- powerful and immediately usable with all standard partner solutions
