Webgate used to interface CAREL controllers that communicate over RS485 networks using the CAREL proprietary protocol to Ethernet™-TCP/IP networks. The protocols made available by Webgate on the TCP/IP network are HTTP and SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol).
When using the HTTP protocol, users can display and set system parameters using a web browser as the interface. The web pages (HTML) loaded on Webgate need to developed and loaded in accordance with the features of the specific system for management of the data arriving from instruments via the CAREL RS485 network, using standard software tools.
When using the SNMP protocol, the data arriving from the instruments connected in a CAREL RS485 network are shared with a local or remote supervisor for processing as desired.
