CONTAINER REVOLUTION

THE FUTURE IS INTELLIGENT AND CONTAINERIZED

Hilscher, a leader in industrial communication, has launched a unified IoT technology portfolio and named it netFIELD.

It includes

  • scalable gateway hardware (netFIELD Edge)
  • a secure operating system (netFIELD OS)
  • ready-to-use applications for the edge (netFIELD Apps)
  • an open REST API standard for connecting with netFIELD-based applications and services (netFIELD Cloud)
  • and a user-friendly self-service portal (netFIELD Portal)
netFIELD is a fully managed service that makes it possible to run workloads at the edge from a central point at scale, bringing intelligence to the edge with a hybrid cloud and edge approach.

netFIELD EDGE

YOUR DIGITAL IIOT TRANSFORMATION WITH OUR MANAGED EDGE DEVICES

Devices of netFIELD Edge complement the factory floor when PLCs alone come to their limits in IIoT based instrumentations delivering loads of data. They aggregate, compute or forward with power. Your augmented intelligence software either device deployed or on a companion cloud exploits the information flood turning it into factory insights to gain beneficial value outcome like reducing downtimes or increasing efficiency.
The integrated Docker enables the deployment of any business logic and computing jobs wrapped up into secure and portable containers. In minutes your software is shifted to the local edge on any number of devices managed worldwide through a complementing web portal.

SENSOR EDGE

LEAVE CLASSIC IO-LINK INSTRUMENTATIONS BEHIND – USE INSTANT-ON INTERNET INSTEAD

sensorEDGE gets your IO-Link sensors’ data directly on the internet eliminating the use of PLCs, Fieldbus and separate IO-Link masters. The sensor boxes uplink to an internet portal where the boxes and the connected sensors are administered and their data is visualized. IO-Link sensors are commissioned with ease due to an auto-discovery and -provisioning service using sensors’ IODD fi les automatically grabbed from a central database.
