YOUR DIGITAL IIOT TRANSFORMATION WITH OUR MANAGED EDGE DEVICES

The netFIELD Edge devices allow you to aggregate, process, and forward IIoT data. They are therefore suitable for all production environments in which controllers reach their limits when handling the data provided by the IIoT systems. You can evaluate the data available with an augmented intelligence solution, either directly on your device or in an accompanying cloud. This gives you an in-depth insight into your production, offering tangible added value, such as avoiding downtime or increasing your efficiency. Your business data and processing jobs can be securely and portably provided via containers using the integrated docker. Your software can therefore be deployed to any number of devices that are managed globally via a central web portal at the local edge in a matter of minutes.

YOUR FOCUS STAYS ON APPLICATIONS WITH OUR EDGE SOLUTION-READY PLATFORMS

SECURITY ENHANCED LINUX

YOCTO Linux with security modules, signed images, secure booting, and TLS-encrypted web frontend

DUAL DOCKER

Two docker instances operate workload containers encapsulated and securely on your devices, either locally or via web portal

INDUSTRIAL ETHERNET

Model-dependent support of Real-Time Ethernet networks in active or listening mode

ENHANCED CONNECTIVITY

Model-dependent connectivity options, such as WLAN, USB or serial connections

COMPUTING POWER

On-premise operation of sophisticated container software is also possible

  • Separated network ports for proper network segmentation
  • Powerful x86 or ARM based quadcore CPUs with clock rates starting at 1.2GHz
  • IT uplink ports for both local or cloud based continous communications
  • Additional interfaces for different types of sensors and actuators of the shop floor

YOUR DEVICE FLEET MANAGED THROUGH YOUR INTERNET PORTAL

ENTERPRISE PORTAL

Web-based control center that allows you to remotely manage your installed devices and their software containers

ACCESS CONTROL

Administration based on enterprise hierarchy with role-based access control

REST API

https-based programming interface for building custom, portal-independent web and cloud applications

SCALEABLE ROLL-OUT

The OEM-enabled solution enables you to operate your own instance or a copy of the portal as a client

Our hybrid edge/portal solution makes the IT/ OT transition smart – anywhere, anytime.

With location-independent deployment, troubleshooting, and auto-provisioning, it helps you quickly and scalably take advantage of container software to reduce the capital and operational costs of your IIoT and automation projects.
