The benefits of Industrial IoT

Products for new communication. HMS Industrial Networks presents a number of industrial communication innovations for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The new solutions and prototypes enable communication between Operational Technology (OT) on the factory floor and Information Technology (IT) resulting in unprecedented efficiency gains.

Profibus/Profinet to .NET gateways and solutions for embedded IIoT are two examples of what HMS presents. (Fig.: HMS)

Building on 25 years of experience in industrial communication, HMS’s Industrial IoT solutions will be a gamechanger for many machine builders and plant owners. For example, they will allow machines to communicate their operation status to IT systems enabling predictive maintenance. They will also allow machine builders to become service providers and sell maintenance as a service. IT systems can analyze information from realtime industrial systems and present KPIs and statistics from previously unattainable OT systems. HMS presents for example IT/OT bridging solutions, cloud solutions and industrial networking.

IT/OT bridging solutions
New “edge connectivity gateways” enable access to OT information from the IT-level giving business intelligence systems unprecedented access to live information from production facilities. Among other things, HMS presents new gateways for connecting Profinet and Profibus to .NET on the IT level. Another piece of news is an “embedded IIoT” solution where integrated Anybus chips, bricks and modules open a direct channel to the IT level making the host machine “IIoT-ready.”

Cloud solutions
HMS’s proven and trusted Netbiter solution already connects thousands of drives, generators, UPSs and other OT-machines to the cloud where they can be monitored and controlled remotely. HMS now presents new solutions for connectivity to third party clouds such as Thingworks, Oracle and SAP. Connection to these clouds can be made using HMS’s new IT/OT bridging solutions.

Industrial networking
HMS’s current product portfolio for industrial networking is already connecting more than three million automation devices around the world. Many of these devices get connected to some kind of controlling system – a basic form of IIoT. HMS also presents a new OPC UA solution for the German “Industrie 4.0” initiative meaning that an OPC UA server is offered inside the Anybus communication solutions providing data from the factory floor. pb
