Drop-in Solutions to Modernize Your Automation Infrastructure
Automation and Control Systems Engineers face ever-mounting
pressures to increase efficiency, bring down costs, and modernize
Seeing your competitors embracing Cloud and IIoT technologies,
running advanced analytics in SQL databases, passing data through
MQTT pipelines and the like, you may be tempted to ditch your legacy
equipment and start from scratch.
Don’t tear down and rebuild. Revitalize legacy applications with
Maple Systems Communication Gateways.
Breathe new life into what you’ve got. It doesn’t have to cost a
Our Communication Gateways are the affordable option that allows you
to keep using your existing controllers and PLCs, while enhancing
the applications you’ve spent so much time and money to develop.
With our Communication Gateways, you can interface with hundreds of
different types of controllers. You can aggregate data, publish and
subscribe to MQTT topics, read and write from Relational Databases,
sync up with SCADA systems, and much more. Even better, you can do
so without modifying the applications you already have in place.
How our Communication Gateways works for you to meet your
infrastructure modernization needs
Collaboration between Operations Teams (OT) and Information
Technology Teams (IT) is critical to enhancing productivity and
increasing the efficiency of industrial processes.
In talking to hundreds of our customers, systems integrators, and
distributors over the years, a common thread has emerged as a
Guiding Principle on the road to Operational Excellence. The single
biggest factor they attribute to their success in digital
transformation and modernization efforts is Standardization.
Specifically, customers tell us that the Standardization of Data
Pipelines and Data Storage across the organization yields the
greatest benefits in terms of reducing costs and empowering managers
to make better business decisions.
How does a Maple Systems Communication Gateway figure into this
Our Communication Gateways feature industry-standard networking and
data storage technologies, with support for:
- MQTT with Sparkplug B, connecting to any SCADA system
MQTT with Cloud Application Providers: Amazon AWS IoT Core,
Google Cloud IoT Core, Microsoft Azure IoT Hub
Device security certificates to ensure encrypted communication
between all MQTT end points with TLS 1.2
Modbus RTU and TCP/IP Communications, as Master, Slave, or
- OPC UA Server and Client roles
Time-series controller data aggregation, exportable to CSV, with
backup via email, SMS, or web portal
Full integration with MySQL and Microsoft SQL Database Servers
A Maple Systems Communication Gateway allows you to extract,
scale, and transform data from legacy controllers, sensors and
edge nodes, publish these process variables as an MQTT Broker to
any SCADA or Cloud platform, and save data to SQL databases hosted
locally or in the Cloud.
A compact, fan-less design allows these units to slot into any
panel. Includes Dual-Ethernet and Serial ports for communication
with over 350 types of controllers and PLCs. Free EBPro
Configuration Software available for download from our
