Congratulations u-remote! - Happy Birthday to u.
10 years ago, we launched the unique IP20 remote I/O system, which is now a global standard in many automation solutions.
Convincing through simplicity and flexibility as well as compactness and modularity.
And because the requirements in automation, digitalisation and the Industrial IoT are constantly growing, u-remote simply grows with them!
Discover for yourself why the u-remote Next Generation (NG) from Weidmüller's u-mation family is the best solution for your automation task. Discover the next evolutionary step now: Even more performance. Simplified.
u-remote is turning 10 and its fans all over the world thank Weidmüller for the best remote I/O system in the world.
This is the easy way to automation and the Industrial IoT.
Thank you. And: keep going u-remote
Zero hour for u-remote. In 2013, Weidmüller's first remote I/O system is installed in the electrical cabinet; developed by the pioneer of Smart Industrial Connectivity. And equipped with many great product features and benefits.
Watch the first product trailer again.
Space often plays a decisive role in the control cabinet. The u-remote HD module results in increased channel density due to its unique I/O connectivity. Simply connect and plug in up to 8 sensors.
Fail-safe I/O and power supply modules make our remote I/O system u-remote a reliable partner in your control cabinet when it comes to reducing risks and avoiding danger to people and the environment.
u-remote takes its first steps out of the control cabinet. Well-dressed, with IP67 protection, it is now ready for use in the field.
Our fieldbus-independent connection of the IP67 I/Os to the IP20 system using a slim gateway module.
u-remote is adapted to the needs of different industries. This is also the case for shipping, for example. The electronics and mechanics are designed to be robust enough to withstand the increased demands.
Smart integration of field devices into automation - with the IO-Link master from u-remote.
With the new, compact stepper motor module from u-remote, small but precise positioning tasks with up to 256 microsteps can be controlled completely autonomously.
With the new IO-Link configurator, IO-Link devices can be integrated, configured and monitored in the simplest way.
Integrate intelligent HART® devices into flexible automation solutions. The u-remote HART® master module is not only tough, but now also understands the "Highway Addressable Remote Transducer" - the HART® communication protocol for short.
u-remote enables accurate data acquisition and pre-processing. With Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN), u-remote already meets the requirements of tomorrow: time synchronisation, prioritisation of critical data streams and strict compliance with time guarantees.
u-remote- The next evolutionary stage with a new backplane bus. Fit for the future - for even more applications.
We have prepared a birthday present for our u-remote fans.
The IP20 remote I/O system is undergoing an upgrade. It is even more performant and still combines all the advantages in the best I/O system for automation and the Industrial IoT.
The backplane bus has been optimised and all couplers and modules are now equipped with a stronger chip. Even more performance, degrees of freedom and safety with the u-remote NG in your application!
u-remote NG from Weidmüller. Even more performance. Simplified.
The u-remote fieldbus couplers and I/O modules communicate with each other via an internal system bus and exchange all process, status and configuration data via it. Now, this system bus is executed even more performant to be able to exchange more data faster and better between the fieldbus coupler and the I/O modules.
Even more performance. Simplified.
Previously, the u-remote I/O modules were able to transmit up to 16 bytes of process data each to the fieldbus coupler and thus to the superimposed network in one system bus cycle. With the upgrade, each I/O module is now capable of transferring up to 128 bytes per cycle, meaning 8 times the amount of data.
With 32 bits instead of the previous 16 bits, there are two options for optimizing the timestamp functionality in the system in a targeted manner:
1. increase the timeout for the counter from 65 ms to up to 1.2 h
2. precision of the timestamp accuracy down to ns
With full support of the new system bus of all I/O modules and the fieldbus coupler within a u-remote station, the data transfer rate is 192 Mbit/s instead of the previous 48 Mbit/s, i.e. four times as much.
In a first step, all existing I/O modules will be gradually converted to the new system bus technology. This will ensure that the technical specifications of these I/O modules are, of course, retained in full. This also applies to all certifications and approvals.
The changeover takes place smoothly to ensure the availability of the I/O modules at all times. All newly developed I/O modules will of course be equipped with the new system bus technology from the outset.
In a second step, the new system bus is selectively integrated into the network interfaces, meaning the fieldbus couplers, in order to be able to use the full performance incl. the max. data transfer rate, if this is also supported on the network side.
The update of the system bus of u-remote does not require any adjustments in existing projects - neither in the configuration nor in the parameterization.
To the outside, meaning to the control, to the IPC or to the cloud, all couplers and modules appear as before and can be used with the existing device descriptive files in the conventional way.
A combination of previous modules and new modules with the system bus upgrade is also possible without any problems. The entire station always behaves at least as it did before the system upgrade.
The remote I/O system is used in many applications worldwide. It is compact, simple and robust. u-remote meets many international standards and is at home in your industries.
Are you looking for a solution that is IIoT-ready?
The u-remote Next Generation meets the requirements for fast data acquisition and pre-processing more than ever.
Even more performance. Simplified.

With u-remote, the AIMS (Australian Institute of Marine Science) uses an I/O system that meets the high scientific requirements. It is used in the aquariums of the National Sea Simulator (SeaSim). The modular design of the u-remote module makes it possible to replace electronics during operation. This reduces downtime to a minimum. In addition, the plain-text diagnosis in the integrated web server facilitates error identification, so that maintenance time is significantly reduced. Thus, u-remote is suitable to be used as standard in the control cabinets of the aquarium.
The American Duchess has everything it takes to carry on the great tradition of Mississippi paddle steamers into the 21st century: a melodious name, dignified furnishings and to combat the sultry southern weather, a highly efficient air conditioning system automated with Weidmüller u-remote. Modern automation solutions are urgently needed everywhere in shipping, even in power engineering, for example in offshore wind farms
With increasing digitalisation, automation systems also need to become increasingly powerful and more flexible. Modular control systems such as u-control web can take on both automation tasks and Industrial IOT tasks. Modularity and the use of newly integrated container technology make u-control web the perfect fit. The development of new applications is made easier: in-house or 3rd-party software solutions can be easily installed on u-control web, thus enhancing the functionality of the control system in line with the specific application scenario.
Data acquisition, pre-processing and communication as well as analysis. This is no problem with the new u-remote family. The new backplane bus is ideally suited for this - with u-remote NG there is now:
Even More Performance. Simplified.
