Company Description
DATA MODUL, established in 1972, is a major manufacturer and distributor of high quality electronic products and is the leading European supplier of flat screens for industrial, telecommunication, automotive and especially medical markets. On top of that DATA MODUL is a System Integrator offering complete and perfectly tuned Embedded Computer Systems based on ARM and x86 architectures. With our partners and our own developed and manufactured products, we offer a wide selection of solutions in different form factors and performance levels for any industrial application. From pre-configured kits consisting of Embedded Board, Display, fitting cable set and Inverter/Converter up to fully customized Baseboard Designs, DATA MODUL provides the whole range of Embedded solutions. This combination of standard products from major worldwide suppliers with customized developments provides tailor-made solutions for any project requirement.

ABB is a global leader in power and automation technologies. Their solutions improve the efficiency, productivity and quality of their customers’ operations while minimizing environmental impact.

Schneider Electric is a leading global manufacturer of equipment for electrical power distribution and for industrial control and automation. The company helps power generators distribute electricity; designs automation systems for the automobile and water treatment industries; builds electric networks and utility management systems for energy, water treatment, oil and gas, and marine applications; and manages electric power in residential, industrial, and commercial buildings. Year founded: 1836 Revenue: $26.0 billion (2014) EPA: SU Featured Subsidiaries/ Business Units: - Avantis - Wonderware
Rockwell is a provider of industrial automation power, control and information solutions that helps manufacturers achieve a competitive advantage for their businesses. Rockwell operates in two segments: Architecture & Software, which deals in hardware, software and communication components of the organization, and Controls Products & Solutions that handles a portfolio of intelligent motor control and industrial control products, application expertise and project management capabilities.
Founded in 1985 and headquartered in Herzogenaurach, Bayern, Vipa develops, manufactures, and sells a variety of PLCs, ranging from compact, modular, high-speed types to PC-capable with I/O systems, HMI, and other products. The company has an extensive customer base in the automobile, packaging, food and beverage sectors, and among suppliers of conveyor systems.
Liebherr Group today is a leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, but also supplies innovative user-oriented products and services in many other fields.
IoT Solutions

Our lives are touched daily by the Internet. It widens our horizons and improves our capabilities by connecting us to a wider community and their collective knowledge. A similar revolution in industry is connecting intelligent machines and the collective data generated from a growing number of electronic sensors. We are ‘seeing, hearing, and feeling’ our industrial processes like never before and this empowers the decisions we make to optimize performance. This revolution allows us to operate machines more safely, with greater efficiency, and with lower environmental impact, not just individually, but as complete systems, working in harmony to enhance power and productivity for a better world. For over a decade ABB has been working to develop and enhance process control systems, communications solutions, sensors and software for the Internet of Things, Services and People (IoTSP). These technologies enable their customers in industries, utilities and infrastructure to analyze their data more intelligently, optimize their operations, boost their productivity, and their flexibility. ABB is advancing the IoTSP by helping their customers develop their existing technologies, while keeping sight of our enduring commitment to safety, reliability, cyber security and Data Privacy.

The recent Internet of Things (IoT) momentum has been enabled through a broad adherence to open standards (such as Ethernet) and by technology breakthroughs in the area of Data Aggregation middleware. Schneider Electric delivers open, connected solutions at each IoT-driven intelligent ecosystem layer: the connected, decentralised device layer (sensors, drives, meters, PLCs, controls, switchgear), the platform layer (cloud services, middleware, physical infrastructure architectures), and the On-Premise central control layer (operational intelligence, remote monitoring, predictive analysis, simulation, cloud analytics). Schneider Electric tools help data centre, plant, and smart grid operators to become more efficient by sorting through mountains of data (eliminating false alarms or nuisance alarms) and by generating dashboards that consolidate the information coming in from all parts of the extended network. Instead of gridlock, a smooth flow of information is created which allows for greater operational intelligence and higher quality decisions. IoT is broadening the scope of where both power protection and security are needed, as entire chains of communication can be disrupted by the breakdown of a single device. Schneider Electric leverages the power of IoT and big data to maximize safety and reliability through high-precision automation and control, training and simulation, the generation of ‘what if’ scenarios, robust remote management, Predictive Maintenance, managed services, and advanced analytics. Power protection and cyber security considerations are imbedded into our product designs in order to strengthen overall network reliability.
Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread. In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.
Liebherr creates innovative IoT solutions that are extendable and plug-and-play. Liebherr has developed the fleet management platform LiDAT for their construction machines. Due to customer demand, these platforms are often extended to include competitors’ products but with limited data coverage and functionality. For the household appliance industry, Liebherr has a novel refrigeration solution: a plug-and-play device that turns almost any of the company's fridges into a smart fridge. What's especially brilliant about the SmartDevice is not so much its capabilities, but Liebherr's overall approach to smart home technology. Unlike smart home setups that force users to buy pricey hardware that can't be upgraded and may not even be necessary, SmartDevice gives consumers the option of choosing nearly any Liebherr fridge and adding connectivity only if and when they feel comfortable doing so.
