Technical requirements and information – moneo

Application of moneo

The moneo software can be operated on various terminal devices and in a virtual environment. On the one hand, ifm offers the preconfigured moneo appliance hardware (QHA210) or the moneo vAppliance virtual machine (QVA200) on which the moneo software is pre-installed. On the other hand, moneo is available as software-only solution for installation in a Windows environment.

To use the moneo software modules, it is necessary to purchase the corresponding licenses. Depending on the computing power you provide, the following performance values can be expected from your moneo installation:

Please note:

Compatibility of moneo and ifm IO-Link masters

moneo is compatible with all ifm IO-Link masters that communicate via MQTT/JSON. First generation IO-Link masters (firmware version V1.n.n) are not supported, but they can be updated to a newer version with a software update.

The following series are supported:

  • DataLine series firmware version V2.0.n and higher
  • CabinetLine series firmware version V2.0.n and higher
  • StandardLine series firmware version V2.1.n and higher
  • PerformanceLine series firmware version V3.0.n and higher

In the currently described use cases with moneo RTM, the IO-Link masters of the following series have been used

  • AL 13xx (DataLine)
  • AL19xx (CabinetLine)

The communication for moneo RTM and the IO-Link masters must take place via the master's IOT port.

The IO-Link masters of the AL11nn, AL12nn, AL14nn series, which are not equipped with a dedicated IoT port, can also be used for RTM appliations. Since these devices are not optimised for IOT applications, performance limitations may have to be expected.

In addition, it is possible to configure IO-Link devices via moneo configure with the ifm IO-Link masters E30390 and AL1060 which can be connected via the USB port. These masters are not intended for moneo RTM applications.
