The original idea was about finding an easy yet effective way to demonstrate how Industrial Internet of Things can disclose amazing opportunities about networking, devices and data management.
The main objective of this nerdy project was clearly to showcase how Endian solutions could be integrated with an industrial environment made up of machinery and PLCs.
To achieve our goal we needed a mini-factory, which could show in real-time both a whole production process, and Endian integration with the data provided by the mini-factory itself.
Data is collected by Endian 4i Edge 515 gateway via our S7 collector, that gets data from Main PLC at regular intervals.
We can also collect data from other industrial protocols (OPC-UA, Modbus, Ethernet/IP and others).
Endian 4i Edge 515 sends data via MQTT (nowadays one of the most widely adopted protocols in industry 4.0) to Endian Switchboard software which stores everything into a database.
