codestryke - Secure Connectivity for Industrial Equipment in the Cloud

Use Case

Fast, simple, secure connectivity for IoT

Industrial machine builders face continuing pressure to innovate and drive revenue. OEMs are increasingly adopting IoT solutions to offer new digital services and business models. However, the process of commissioning and connecting IoT solutions often becomes a bottleneck for machine builders and industrial equipment manufacturers. Rolling out an IoT solution requires extensive manual configuration, and frequent security and configuration updates are necessary. 

To realize the benefits of IoT, machine builders must be able to cost-effectively manage the connectivity of their devices and data sources. They realize that managing all devices separately is unsustainable and are looking for a centralized management tool from which they can acquire and manage data and implement configuration changes.

We have a solution

Simple administration and maintenance of connected devices

This solution use case, provided by codestryke on the MindSphere platform, enables cost-effective, scalable connectivity of PLCs, sensors, frequency converters, and more to industrial equipment. 

VergeLink runs on existing hardware and provides a central interface for controllers and field devices in the cloud. In fewer than five minutes, OEMs can leverage VergeLink to create devices, configure data points, and establish cloud connections. All field devices in the network are automatically detected, and zero-touch provisioning places them into operation without requiring local configuration.Data is simultaneously acquired from controls, field devices, and wireless sensors for complete operational insight.

VergeLink eliminates the need to buy expensive hardware to connect devices to the cloud. This scalable solution drives forward-looking change to processes and products, enabling productivity gains, costs savings, and long-term success.

Features


  • Flexible integration with all common cloud platforms via MQTT and REST
  • Support for all relevant industry protocols
  • One-click configuration of field devices from extensive device library
  • Encrypted communication and simple authentication via API-key
  • SPS building blocks for direct feedback with error and success codes

Benefits


  • Reduce time spent on commissioning and updating by connecting controllers and field devices to the cloud in only five minutes
  • Enable new business models and deliver digital value-added services to customers
  • Provide full data transparency for all employees in production, maintenance, and development
