Trusted Industrial Codebase

Deploy a Robust Edge-to-Core Data Solution with a Trusted Codebase across Industrial Production Sites

Monitoring distributed industrial operations architectures, such as Oil/Gas, Mining, Utilities, or Water/WasteWater is a complex task. Collecting data from these geographically distributed operations is often done through costly SCADA infrastructure, which tends to be limited. Distributed operations need more access to bandwidth, security, and reliability than traditional SCADA communications can’t provide.

Kepware’s ThingWorx Kepware Edge helps reduce connectivity costs within the IoT landscape and SCADA for such distributed architectures. It employs secure IoT protocols such as OPC UA or MQTT to connect distributed assets to the edge computing gateways and through them to the cloud.

Lanner provides the hardware where ThingWorx Kepware Edge can be deployed. Lanner’s x86 Industrial edge gateways such as LEC-3034 or LEC-7242 are purpose-built appliances built to endure harsh industrial environment conditions, while providing the necessary processing for edge analytics and networking needs to handle data collection and communication.

Remotely connect, manage, monitor, and control with an industry-leading IoT solution

ThingWorx Kepware Edge features native connectivity to ThingWorx, the leading Industrial IoT platform. By connecting to ThingWorx, users can quickly and programmatically add rich context to their industrial data and transform it into useful insights.

Out-of-the-Box Connectivity to popular industrial devices

ThingWorx Kepware Edge provides connectivity to Allen-Bradley ControlLogix devices, Siemens S7 devices, and devices that utilize the popular Modbus protocol over Ethernet. This encompasses most devices used in production environments. In subsequent releases, PTC will add connectivity to popular oil & gas devices.

Industry 4.0 Solution for Critical Industrial Production

Collect data at Level 0 & 1 (Purdue model) from devices that are part of critical control systems that can’t be interrupted or modified to provide the data needed by other systems in the enterprise for IoT/Digital transformations.
