Sometimes software can be easy to upgrade. Think of your smartphone, just one-click or one restart and your device is upgraded. In the industrial sector, it's not quite that easy. Old and outdated (or even obsolete) industrial hardware is often difficult to upgrade and tedious to connect to newer hardware with different protocols. This lack of device communication is a significant hurdle for the industrial internet movement.
Enter nio. nio is able to communicate to various PLCs and remote I/O units and any sensor communicating with nearly any protocol. This device agnosticism enables true communication between all types of industrial hardware.
Check out the short video below for more information on how nio plays well with industrial hardware both new and old.
