INTERNET OF THINGS

Enable it with CNCnetPDM:

See and output data from highly diverse devices in consistent, comparable form. Allow them to communicate with each other. Control them from within your applications. Eliminate the need for third-party drivers, additional hardware or modifications of these devices.

Functions

  • Connects highly diverse devices to your applications.
  • Reads and writes data from and to them by only using the technique approved by their manufacturer.
  • Outputs data in homogenous, understandable form to solutions from MES/ERP to Big Data and everything in between.

BACKGROUND

Lots of devices come with solutions that output their data to PCs or Smartphones and enable to control them. Because each manufacturer uses an own technique to do so this requires an own application for every device type. These applications neither output their data in comparable form nor they are able to communicate with each other.

It may be possible to use a third-party driver that acquires, converts and outputs data in a standardized format. However, appart from the fact that this is usually prohibited this may influence functionality and lead to serious questions about warranty and service. Revovery or update of the device software usually removes these drivers.

 Manufacturer specific solutions

FIG 1:    Manufacturer specific solutions
  • So, how can data from diverse devices be acquired and output in a consistent and comparable form?
  • How can the necessity to buy and maintain and own solution for every type of device be avoided?
  • How can devices from different manufacturers communicate with each other?
  • How can be guaranteed that future devices can be integrated problem-free?.

HOW IT WORKS

CNCnetPDM is based on a patent-pending method that allows you to directly access and utilize data of the manufacturers communication solution included with your device.

You can assign acquired values to consistent parameters which makes data from different sources comparable. The information is output in understandable form and can be processed in near real time by business solutions.
