Turn Your Equipment into a Smart, Connected Device

The Bacsoft Smart Communications Controllers are a family of products designed to make any sensor or piece of equipment into a smart, connected device. Simple to deploy, the Smart Controller can interface with any PLC, sensor or proprietary device through standard interfaces such as Serial 232/485, Ethernet, digital, analog, PT100 and relay output. It includes built-in support for Modbus and Melsec and can be easily adapted to work with any proprietary protocol, binary or ASCII.

Reliable Cellular Connectivity You Can Trust

Bacsoft Smart Controllers provide bi-directional cellular communications over 2G networks and higher. Through extensive experience with networks around the world, Bacsoft has developed technology to ensure reliable connectivity under all conditions. Controllers independently manage connectivity to the IoT Cloud including initiating communications, automatically transitioning to offline login mode if there is a communications failure, performing self-recovery and more.

End to End Security

Communication between the Bacsoft Smart Communications Controllers and the Bacsoft IoT Cloud are secured with SSL 3.0 encryption, along with the option to install private, self-signed certificates. The Smart Controller manages the connection with the PLC or sensor, so it is never queried over the air. To further increase security and eliminate the need for a fixed IP address, the controller identifies and verifies the server during each connection.

Suitable for All Locations and Conditions

For areas where the power grid is either unavailable or unreliable, the controller is available in low-power models that provide up to seven years of autonomous operation. Small and lightweight, the Smart Controller is housed in a robust IP68 enclosure and is easily installed in any location from a remote pipeline to an electrical tower.
