Nowadays, lots of production data or device information needs to be smoothly transmitted to server or cloud for big data analytic in I4.0 applications. Thus, a good management tool to ensure the connectivity facilities, including networking and field devices run in good condition is very important.

NEXCOM provides nCare, I4.0 Node and Network Manager to fulfill the demand of such management. nCare is designed with protocols for network management and Modbus. This enables nCare to manage not only NEXCOM’s IWF products but also third party devices. In addition, nCare can also manage those devices implemented with Modbus protocol. nCare is a perfect tool to manage connectivity products from device to network backbone and construct 3-layer management solution in I4.0 applications.
