IOTech's Device Connectivity software greatly simplifies the work required to connect to and communicate with different devices and sensors at the IoT edge. It presents a large set of easy-to-use device connectors that support fast and efficient data flow from the devices to edge and cloud platforms.
IOTech provide support for easily connecting to edge devices via a large number of common OT protocols. Each device connector is delivered as a low footprint microservice that can be used for fast and efficient data flow to either Edge Xpert or Edge XRT.
Edge computing solutions offer a place for collecting, computing and storing smart meter data before transmitting it to the cloud. This environment acts as a bridge in the middle of the smart grid and the cloud. It is geographically distributed and overhauls cloud computing via additional capabilities including reduced latency for more responsive grid control, increased privacy and locality for smart grids.
Easily discover, connect and then read and write data to Bluetooth Low Energy devices with IOTech's high-performance BLE device connector. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), is a light-weight subset of classic Bluetooth and was introduced as part of the Bluetooth 4.0 specification. BLE is a close-range, wireless technology that is prevalent in connecting low-power or battery-based consumer IoT devices including wearables, phones and tablet PCs.
Connect to a Zigbee network and easily read and write data to devices with IOTech's high performance Zigbee device connector. Zigbee is an open wireless mesh network protocol managed by the Zigbee Alliance group. It is designed to transmit small amounts of data between low-power devices on the network. Zigbee is used in residential and commercial building automation environments, industrial heating and cooling systems, and in the medical device sector. Zigbee is a local area network (LAN) protocol, whereas Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is more focused around connectivity of mobile devices in close proximity to a central host device. The Zigbee Cluster Library (ZCL) defines a set of functions and profiles that allow device manufacturers to meaningfully communicate with each other via the protocol. For example, there are Zigbee clusters that define standardized instructions for sensing, lighting and HVAC devices. Zigbee supports both star, tree and mesh network structures and requires a coordinator device to manage the connectivity.
Edge computing has become the key ingredient in the smart manufacturing formula to accelerate digital transformation. Edge computing helps manufacturers turn vast data sets, generated by machines, into insightful and actionable data. It does so by utilizing resources connected to a network, such as temperature sensors, alarms or motor drives. This enables big data analytics to take place at the source of the data in smart factories and industrial automation
Modbus is a widely used open communications protocol that delivers data between control systems and devices. Modbus has a long history and is still one of the most prevalent protocols used in OT systems - particularly in Industrial Automation and Building Management. Easily read and write to data Modbus devices over both TCP and serial networks with IOTech's high performance Modbus device connector
BACnet (Building Automation and Control Network) is an open communications protocol used for the standard communication between control systems and edge devices in the Building Automation Industry. Easily connect to and control BACnet devices over both IP and serial networks with IOTech's high performance BACnet device connector
Connect to a GPS device and easily read and ingest its location-based information with IOTech's highly reliable GPS device connector. GPS (Global Positioning System) is a satellite-based navigation platform operated by the United States government. It provides location, velocity and time synchronization data for air, sea and land travel. GPS does not require the user to transmit any data and operates independently of any cell or network coverage.
Connect to MQTT devices at the edge and easily read and write data using IOTech's enhanced MQTT device connector. MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) is an open ISO standard for lightweight, platform independent, publish-subscribe communication between devices. MQTT has become perhaps the most dominant protocol for application level data delivery in the Internet of Things (IoT) with client libraries available in most programming languages.
Edge XRT is the software platform for time-critical and resource-constrained edge systems that supports edge computing key requirements such as dynamic edge data processing and the integration of multiple different southbound OT and northbound IT/Cloud endpoints. Edge XRT also supports key non-functional properties such as small memory footprint (e.g. less than 100 KB), ultra-low latency data processing (e.g. less than 100 microseconds), predictable and deterministic real-time execution, and legacy hardware and/or operating systems
Accelarate Your Device Connectivity with Advanced Tooling. IOTech's Device Configuration Tool provides a quick and easy process to create, edit and manage device configurations making it straightforward to connect and onboard devices at scale. The Device Configuration Tool supports the Edge Xpert, Edge XRT and EdgeX platforms.
Easily control and read data from EtherNet/IP devices using both implicit and explicit messaging formats with IOTech's industrial-grade EtherNet/IP device connector. EtherNet/IP (EIP) defines an application layer protocol that efficiently and reliably instructs how devices should operate in industrial automation environments. EIP is one of the world's leading industrial protocols and is widely used in a range of industries including manufacturing and process control.
Open Retail Initiative (OR) promotes the free exchange of ideas within the retail industry in order to drive creative and technological advancement. Through collaborations within the EdgeX Foundry community and ecosystem partners such as Canonical, Dell, Envirosell, HP, JD.com, JDA, Petrosoft, RetailNext, SAS, Shekel Brainweigh, SUSE, Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, Verifone, VMware and IOTech the initiative is removing barriers to technology adoption.
IoT Edge solutions using Real-time Data Processing, Analytics, Visualization and Decision-making at the Edge with smart retail sensors. Real-time product location tracking, real-time transaction log and cash drawer report, Real-time weight sensor and product recognition, real-time facial and gesture recognition technologies in collaboration with Dell, Intel, HP and IOTech
Effective analytics solutions must be able to combine data from multiple sources all of which are likely to have different formats. Open Edge platforms such as IOTech's Edge Xpert help manage this problem by enabling data to be read/written from a wide a range of sensor/device protocols and then presenting the data to the analytics in a normalized format. Edge computing solutions are being used effectively in buildings automation systems are emerging including fault detection, energy analysis, identifying correlations across different types of data and validate the results of investments in energy savings measures.
