netIC IOT Starter Pack

Programming and Commissioning made easy

Everything you need for a quick start!

The netIC IOT Starter Pack is made for manufacturers of industrial devices, who want to easily equip their products with a netIC IOT, to extend them with Real-Time Ethernet communication and additionally with OPC UA and MQTT. The core of the starter pack is a one-day training, in which one will learn all essential knowledge about netIC IOT. Besides an introduction to netIOT „Industrial Cloud Communication“ and the basics about netIC IOT product, the focus is on the Hilscher netPROXY technology, which provides a generic object interface to the customer application. Participants will learn the structure of the netPROXY interface to the host processor. And how netIC IOT will be connected to an application running on a STM32 Nucleo development board. In addition, the netX Studio engineering tool will be presented and the participants will learn how to create an object / product definition for their device. 

In practical exercises, the participants will connect netIC IOT to an STM32 host processor and put it in operation using EtherNet/IP and OPC UA.
