Abstract. Requirements of increased productivity and flexibility in manufacturing processes reflect the concept Industry 4.0. Essential to achieving these targets is the implementation of intelligent and robust distributed control systems focused on interoperability and scalability. New approaches and technologies based on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), cloud computing and Big Data are an emerging field of industrial control that comprises Internet-enabled cyber-physical devices with the ability to link new smart technologies. With this perspective, manufacturing devices can be easily monitored, operated and controlled even from remote locations. Conventional industrial control approach, that use programmable logic controller (PLC), is enhanced with intelligent industrial gateway IoT 2040 as a hardware and Node-RED software environment in order to provide interoperability, robust and reliable control system. Collected process data and parameters from embedded sensors and other connected devices can be quickly collected, processed, transformed and used for device control from remote production environment. This paper deals with an industrial gateway framework adopting the idea of Internet of Things for the development of robust industrial control approach. The concept is tested in real industrial environment.
