The core of the IoT Gateway is Rexroth’s XM controller, firmware and a variety of apps to control the system.
Recently debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the new IoT Gateway from Bosch Rexroth is a system of fully coordinated hardware and software components for new and existing machines.
Bosch Rexroth’s new IoT Gateway makes it easy to connect to the Internet of Things (IoT) without intervening in the automation logic. The precisely coordinated combination of control hardware and software for implementing IT applications collects sensor and process data, transmits it to MES, cloud applications or local machine state monitoring systems and enables process data analysis. The IoT Gateway’s modular software concept is based on Linux, Java apps and open interfaces. Configuration and handling is web-based, free from programming and performed logically in three simple steps.
A huge time and cost savings, no software is needed to set up the system; everything is configurable through web interfaces. Furthermore, users don’t have to learn a programming language to utilize the system, making it easy to get started. And, scalable, embedded control hardware complements three system apps that make data recording, processing and forwarding easy.
Dashboard App – The Central Hub
The Dashboard App provides web-based interfaces for administration, configuration, parameterization and visualization of process data. Users receive a detailed overview of the collected data, and the Devices App enables local monitoring of process data via a standard browser without special software.
Devices App – Flexible Peripheral Connections
The Devices App establishes connections with peripherals such as sensors, and signal values are converted into process data (known as endpoints). Connection options for this app are analog voltage and current signals, digital voltage signals, OPC UA, Open Core Interface for Controls, Siemens S7, RFID and Bluetooth LE.
Processing App – Fast Data Transfer
The Processing App converts process data into information using logical and mathematical operations. The app then forwards that information to higher-level systems such as the Bosch Software Innovations Production Performance Management platform, the Bosch Sensor Cloud, the Bosch Energy Platform, Bosch Rexroth’s ODiN, as well as other MES systems and databases.
