Gateways

Networker between sensor technology and IT

Networker between sensor technology and IT

Data generated in huge quantities by sensors in machines and plants are the basis for many Industry 4.0 concepts. Aggregation should take place so that not all data has to be transferred to the cloud for analysis. For this purpose ifm presents a new edgeGateway.

The new edgeGateway is the optimal link between the sensor level of the plant automation and the IT. Here, the raw data from the sensors must be processed to generate the corresponding information for Industry 4.0 applications. The powerful device works with a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and thus offers sufficient computing power for this task. The die-cast aluminium housing is designed for use in harsh industrial environments and complies with protection class IP 65. High temperatures are not a problem either - the hardware can tolerate ambient temperatures of up to 60 °C without any reduction in computing power.  

Setting up the edgeGateway is very easy; a 12.3-inch display with touch operation is integrated as the user interface. Alternatively, a web server is available to the user for configuring the unit. Since the unit has two separate network ports, the plant network and the IT infrastructure can be operated separately from each other. This ensures a high level of security for the sensitive machine data. The edgeGateway can transmit the collected and processed data directly to the most popular cloud platforms such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Cumulocity.

The new edgeGateway can process data collected by sensors directly on the machines and plants, aggregate it into readable information and transmit it directly to higher-level cloud applications. In this way, the information is available for typical Industry 4.0 applications such as predictive maintenance or energy efficiency monitoring.
