PLC-Control with Gorilla - Interface

The Gorilla app communicates over the defined interface (Gorilla - Interface) with the controller. Via this interface, commands and data are exchanged. The Gorilla-APP is in terms of communication, the active part., The optics, the behavior and the possible functions and data will be determined by the PLC program with the appropriate requirement. Communication with the controller is implemented using the (WiFi, 3G / GPRS) TCP / IP interface. 

The Gorilla - interface can be associated with any PLC program. This open many individual options. Whether. On a new controller / system or as a retrofit to an existing control / system.

Overview of functions

Generally, the Gorilla-concept is a simple but highly flexible "Remote Control System" and is ideal for functions such as:

  • Operator Interface (HMI / SCADA)
  • menu control 
  • Functions on / off - enable / disable 
  • Change parameters
  • Representation of process data


 The possibilities are endless - we invite you to try Gorilla easy and now!
