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.

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

HIGH ASSURANCE LINUX

YOCTO Linux with security modules, signed images boot only and TLS secured web front end

ENHANCED CONNECTIVITY

Device model dependent connectivity options for Wifi, USB, serial, CAN, storage, display and many more

COMPUTING POWER

Sufficient CPU power executing even sofisticated container software on premise

  • Separate OT ports for Real-Time Ethernet networks like PROFINET, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP
  • Powerful x86 or ARM based quadcore CPUs with clock rates starting at 1.2GHz
  • IT uplink ports for both local or cloud based intermittent 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 control center for remote orchestration and management of installed device fleet and their software containers

ACCESS CONTROL

Administration of company hierarchical structures with role-based permission control

REST API

https based programming interface for building own fully featured portal independent web or mobile apps

SCALEABLE ROLL-OUT

OEM prepared to maintain an own instance or a custom portal copy as a tenant

Our hybrid Edge/Portal solution brings intelligence to your IT/OT transitions at any time from anywhere. Remote deployment, troubleshooting and auto-provisioning contribute to a rapid scale across any containerized software to reduce capital and operational costs of your Integrated Industry and Automation projects.
