Visualizing your IoT data
Optimizing business processes in today's IoT environments requires the processing of extensive data. One way to do this is by graphically displaying the collected information, e.g., machine status or current productivity numbers, to gain valuable insights. For plant operators and machine manufacturers, recording irregularities and finding ways to improve efficiency is a crucial factor in ensuring smooth production processes.
With modern cloud solutions, you can collect and centralize your data across multiple locations and online services and then graphically represent them in a meaningful way. This allows you to keep a close eye on important parameters and to make any necessary changes to your processes whenever necessary. Our netFIELD portfolio gives you a comprehensive solution covering all your needs from connecting sensors to offering helpful dashboards in the cloud.
Challenges to data visualization
Collecting and consolidating machine and systems data across several locations is virtually impossible with only a local infrastructure in place. However, by using our cloud-based netFIELD ecosystem, you'll be able to monitor and visualize distributed systems instantly via configurable dashboards in our cloud portal.
Depending on your specific application, you need customized diagrams of your IoT or process data. With our Docker container-based solution you can customize your own analysis software and define your data intelligence yourself. Choose to first process data locally on the machine before transferring to the cloud for visual representation—wherever and whenever you want.
Cloud agnostic connectivity
Do you already use cloud services from Azure, AWS or Google to centralize your data? No problem! netFIELD is cloud agnostic. With the unified MQTT communications infrastructure in the devices, along with our cloud connectors, you can send data streams to any cloud. You can configure the connectors, as well as our and your other applications locally or remotely via the cloud portal.
Hilscher's netFIELD product and service portfolio supports you in the integration of your machines and plants into modern IoT architectures, enabling you to graphically visualize your data. Take advantage of our decades of experience and expertise in communications technology to keep track of your devices and their data in our comprehensive netFIELD ecosystem. Flexibly configurable dashboards let you monitor your information online and use it to perform remote maintenance or optimize processes. By tapping into previously unused data sources of a production plant and programming your own applications, you can also expand your business by developing new business models.
