Gateway for connecting the production line to the cloud

Data acquisition and edge computing for manufacturing with IoT on a cloud basis

Industrial IoT Starter Kit provides an easy entry into the improvement of the overall system effectiveness (OEE) and the analysis of the manufacturing process on a cloud basis. The pre-installed dataFEED OPC Suite enables access to process and machine data in controllers from leading manufacturers such as Siemens SIMATIC S7, Rockwell ControlLogix, B&R and Mitsubishi.

The support of Amazon AWS IoT Greengrass and Microsoft Azure IoT Edge allows the distribution and deployment of workloads via the respective cloud platform. The effort to set up an initial IoT solution for production is very low, while open standards such as OPC UA offer full flexibility for future expansions.

Industrial IoT Starter Kit has been certified for use with Amazon AWS IoT Greengrass and Microsoft Azure IoT Edge.
