We would like to start by the following subject.

Monarco HAT: A device to support Industrial IoT applications

The Manarco HAT device has been developed and is sold worldwide by REX Controls, a company from the Czech Republic. The REX Controls main business applications are based on the REX software system and focus on advanced real-time control systems of various processes, machines, test stands, prototypes and physical models for education.

One of the particularity of the device is its ability to support REST interface for web services. Milos Schlegel, the CEO of REX Controls, told us on the implementation of REST interface in their solution the following: “REST web interface and RESTful web services are logical choices for building web applications. It makes it possible to interconnect together very heterogeneous software tools and they have big potential for IIoT and Industry 4.0”.

Following of web standards increase chances for solutions to reduce maintenance costs and to find the right expertise as there are many users and tools already built to work within an ecosystem created by web standards.
