Supporting a variety of cloud platforms like mbCONNECT24, AZURE, AWS and more, as well as modern communication protocols like OPC-UA and MQTT, mbEDGE transforms your mbNET into a powerful IOT gateway. With mbEDGE, your mbNET unit will acquire data locally, process it and push it to your cloud application.
Node-RED simplifies the creation of your IoT-Edge application. It is web-based and consists of a graphical user interface and a library of pre-built functions & blocks of code, called nodes. Each node, standard or user defined, manages a single functionality: send an email, perform a Modbus read, communicate with mbCONNECT24, MQTT publish/subscribe, OPC-UA,… To create your application, simply drag&drop the nodes on the design sheet, connect them following the logical flow of actions and configure them according to your application context. With Node-RED, you will acquire data, process it and post it to your preferred cloud application. The Node-RED container has access to all mbNET resources.
Docker creates virtual workspaces (containers) for user applications and manages their access to the operating system and the system resources. The containers and their applications are isolated and can only communicate through Docker controlled mechanisms. Node-RED environment runs in such a container. With mbEDGE.advanced, you get access to a second container, running Portainer.io: a GUI for Docker, to configure and manage containers. You also get access to three more containers, to run your own personalized applications. Docker secures deployment & distribution of these applications and only allows signed and trusted images to run in the containers.
Cybersecurity is a core competence of MB connect line and our products are created according to the principles of Security by Design and the standards set forward in IEC62443. To do so, MB connect line R&D engineers are certified for secure software development (TeleTrusT’s T.I.S.P & T.P.S.S.E.). mbNET platforms are equipped with a hardware Secure Element (crypto chip) and a Secure Boot concept that allows only signed and trusted firmware to be installed and boot. All data stored in memory or on the mbEDGE card is encrypted, making it impossible to read without the key stored safely in the crypto chip.
