Intelligent Gateways for Industrial IoT Solutions
With advancing digitalization, there continues to be steady progress in networking between production and office IT.. But the networking of existing plants still remains a major challenge for most manufacturers.
Machines from different OEMs which operate on different technological levels, don’t speak the same data language. Yet, with SIMATIC IoT gateways, you can easily integrate intelligence for IoT solutions – simply, easily, and without expensive or complex retrofits.
The intelligent gateways standardise communication between various data sources asthey support numerous communication protocols and can be adapted to the specific application by means of programming in high-level languages. The SIMATIC IoT gateways then analyse the data on site in production, and forward it to the corresponding recipients.
Thus it’s possible to implement a variety of applications, from preventive maintenance based on machine and plant data, to the simple connection of production to the ERP level – thereby making your production more flexible, reliable, and efficient.
