i3 Intelligent Controller


IMO's i3 intelligent controller offers a unique solution combining both Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and Human Machine Interface (HMI) into one device. As microprocessor technology moves forward, it is a logical step to rationalise hardware and condense many traditional control components down into a single, compact unit. This gives the benefit of reducing manufacturing costs, reducing overall power consumption of the control solution and reducing application development time. It also allows customers to standardise to a single controller to fit most of their applications, and allows greater flexibility for future developments.

The i3 has already been successfully implemented in the following areas:

  • Custom OEM products
  • Packaging Machinery
  • Food Processing
  • Motion Control
  • Water/Waste Management
  • Communications Hub
  • Pump Control
  • Dedicated Alarm Systems
  • HVAC & Environmental Control
  • Building Management
  • Process Control
  • Custodial Vehicle Management

i3 RMI - Remote Monitor & Control

Published directly from the i3 Configurator software, i3 RMI allows web pages containing plant data to be monitored and controlled from your computer, tablet or mobile device. It allows for HTML5 development without the need to web programming or coding skills. The licensing and registration process is quick and simple while the benefits and affordability of i3 RMI will truly change your world.

Our i3 Intelligent Controllers help to make your operation run, and by adding i3 RMI remote monitoring and control functionality, we will continue to keep you running, even if you aren't directly in front of the controller. To do this seamlessly, we have incorporated high level security algorithms like 128 bit SSL encryption and Industry Standard Hash Security Technology.

Contributing to the global trend referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT), the i3 RMI instantly connects you to your automated applications. It enables you to remotely monitor and control easier and faster than ever before, all through your computer, tablet of smartphone, providing you with the necessary insights to grow and improve your business.
