The IoT Opportunity…

IoT solutions can add value to industrial and construction operations by acquiring sensor data, analysing it and providing actionable insights which will increase efficiency, productivity and save money.

The main providers of Cloud technology include IBM, Microsoft and AWS and all have a similar approach to connecting gateways to real world controllers and sensors which all provide data ingress to hot and cold storage with some kind of ‘streaming analytics’ along the way. This large scalable data ingress allows actions and alarms to be set on the incoming data while operations such as predictive analytics and anomaly detection can be performed on live and historical data…

Challenges with implementing this technology include the provision and connection of devices and controllers installed in factories or buildings simply and securely.

The solution…

IA provide a data portal and IoT modem that has built-in, network agnostic, mobile data connectivity, TLS security and easy to use set up software that connects EnOcean sensors, Beckhoff controllers and any other 3rd party devices on open protocols such as OPC UA, BACnet and Modbus to the cloud.
