Container management over the internet >> Hilscher netFIELD
#1
Heart 
Hilscher sells the device >netPI RTE 3< (NIOT-E-NPI3-51-EN-RE) loaded with a different system software under the brand "netFIELD" and named it >netFIELD Connect< (NIOT-E-TPI51-EN-RE/NFLD). The hardware is identical but what's the difference between both products?
