We have seen that often a lot of data is collected from Industrial automation systems through different sensoring and other solutions. If that data could be easily moved to cloud, analysed and presented to users in smart ways, it would be easier to experiment with ways to utilise that data to improve efficiency of operations or even as an enabler for new digital services.
With this in mind we took our Industrial Internet Suite -software solution and installed it on Industrial grade reference HW with 3G connectivity. Our sensact -communication framework combined with Ixonos Cloud and Remote Dashboard make it easy to “plug in” your existing automation environment and start visualising your data. The HW/SW combination supports connections through common field-buses (like Modbus). Check out the more detailed architecture from a previous post.
We now have a set of these packages that we are offering to our customers for pilot use. This way it is very easy and risk-free to try out what you can get out of already existing data and automation by adding modern “Industrial Internet” -technologies.
