Dewesoft IOLITE Awarded a Plant Engineering Product of the Year Award
After being selected as a finalist, Dewesoft has been named a winner in the 34th annual Plant Engineering Product of the Year awards. Awarded just recently, this program honours the best plant and control engineering innovations of 2021, as voted by the audience of Plant Engineering magazine. Awards were given across 15 categories, ranging from actuators, motors, drives, and test & measurement. Manufacturers including Dewesoft were honoured with gold, silver, and bronze trophies presented by CFE Media, publisher of Plant Engineering.
Dewesoft was named the silver trophy winner in the Control Systems category, for the IOLITE industrial data acquisition system. IOLITE combines powerful data acquisition capabilities with real-time control. IOLITE modules are available in a variety of form factors, from DIN rail mounting to completely modular handheld modules that can be mounted anywhere, and distributed across a whole factory, right where they are needed. IOLITE modules are daisy-chained together using EtherCAT, which carries both power, digital data, and time synchronization. Data can be stored in a time-series database, and served to SCADA systems using standard interfaces such as OPC UA or XCP to truly support Industry 4.0 applications.
Off-the-shelf Dewesoft X data acquisition software with a series of supported industry-standard interfaces makes IOLITE the perfect choice for even the most price-sensitive measurement and control tasks. Software is included, with free updates forever, and the hardware is backed with a 7-year warranty.
