Industrial data platform
The ConnectedThinks Industrial data platform is capable of connecting to multiple industrial data sources, correlating and transforming the data into useful insights, and helping improve the efficiency of your industrial business.
The edge-connectors suite is a middleware deployable on ARM or X86-based Industrial edge IoT gateways. It enables quick connection and rapid onboarding of various assets such as machinery, sensors, asset trackers, Bluetooth beacons, and IP Video streams as well as OT assets such as PLC, SCADA, CNC, and HMI – to name a few. It offers secure device management and remote connection.
The ConnectedThinks data platform is a modern technology stack, built-to-scale to ingest and process high-speed, high-density, and real-time industrial data. Its functionality could be split into 3 primary parts – the data-ingest, the data-transform-&-store, and the data-query part.
Data visualization & BI
ConnectedThinks platform offers a custom-built visualization engine, built from the ground up to serve the specific requirements of industrial operations which demand a combination of real-time diagnostic monitoring for high-speed data, a SCADA-like monitoring system with visual aids and historical data analytics with data ranging from a few weeks to couple years. It is built on top of front-end REACT-js libraries along with Authentication and fine-grain access Authorization to deliver a secure web portal that is accessible from any corner of the world. The platform is also pre-integrated with Apache Superset and offers embedded dashboards as well as quick drag-and-drop data exploration. The prestodb query engine ODBC connectors enable you to import and explore data from your existing BI solutions such as Tableau, Looker, PowerBI, etc,
Prafly research and development center was founded in 2005. It is focused on artificial intelligent, multi-dimension sensor, intelligent system technology. Praflly is focusing on developing an IoT smart cloud platform and smart robotics system application platform. Prafly is an embedded partner of Intel in China and lab partner with Microsoft.
The purpose of Industry 4.0 is to make manufacturing more flexible, efficient and sustainable through communication and intelligence, thus increasing the competitiveness of German industry. One major component of this approach is control technology, which is still far from reaching its full potential. Improved communication methodologies and the rising convergence of information and automation technologies will deliver significant progress – something Beckhoff has always focused on with its PC-based control technology and fieldbus communication. Beckhoff provides the foundational technologies and tools needed today to implement Industrie 4.0 concepts and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, all via PC-based control. TwinCAT engineering and control software packages are available for the creation of applications such as Big Data, pattern recognition as well as condition or power monitoring, in addition to traditional control tasks – which can sustainably increase production and engineering efficiency as a result.
Syntec extended its businesses to high-end spindle servo solutions, linear motors, direct drive motors, robots and automation products to meet the demands in automation industry. Coming to the age of Industry 4.0, the company also integrated resources to capture the emerging opportunities in hoping to fulfill its vision goal –Trusted Technical Service.
Industrial data solution
ConnectedThinks offers pre-built solutions to specific industries. All these solutions are built on-top of the Industrial data-platform and can be deployed and commisioned in matter of couple weeks. Reach out to us to discuss your specific requirements.
Manufacturing data analytics
Factories generate large amounts of data. A single PLC node in the factory could provide significant information about the health of the equipment and system it is driving. This information could significantly reduce the maintenance cost or avoid losses.
Vision and Sound Machine Learning
Vision and Sound are 2 important systems for inspection in industrial environments. ConnectedThinks offers ML-based solutions built with data from relatively cheaper IP surveillance cameras and microphones. These help to become the Eyes and Ears for your industrial setup.
AMR, AGV and warehouse solutions
With new robotics technology opening doors for companies of all sizes, autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and automation are becoming more popular in the manufacturing industry. Changing economic conditions, shortage in the supply of manual labor, and multiple such factors have led manufacturers to adopt an aggressive strategy to automate their workflows. The ConnectedThinks Edge Middleware is deployed on an Edge Compute Device and enables multiple edge functionalities such as Machine Learning predictions, device connectivity drivers, industrial interface protocols, network connectivity, etc. It is capable of running on Intel or ARM-based edge processors running Linux. It is also capable of running Edge analytics for data that is collected and localized to the edge. More often than not, AMRs are deployed on factory floors where they need to collaborate with other equipment in order to complete a job. For example, an AMR which needs to transfer goods across multiple floors needs to collaborate with the automated-lift system. Or the AMR needs to collaborate with the conveyor system for the loading and unloading of goods. Or in other cases, a bar-code scanner attached to the AMR would determine the destination. In all such cases, additional software logic and/or hardware Edge Gateways would be needed to connect to various machinery and equipment and help the AMR collaborate.
