Industrial IoT starter kit
Softing Industrial has introduced the Industrial IoT Starter Kit (IISK), a gateway for industrial IoT solutions that offers pre-integration with Microsoft Azure Connected Factory and full flexibility based on the OPC UA interoperability standard.
The IoT Starter Kit bundles HPE’s GL20 IoT Gateway, Softing’s dataFEED OPC Suite, Microsoft Azure IoT Edge components OPC Proxy and OPC Publisher, and a three-year support contract into a single product.
Key features are said to include connectivity for a broad range of PLC and sensor interfaces, and seamless integration with Microsoft Azure Connected Factory. A deployment of the Starter Kit does not require any changes in the existing automation network.
Users benefit from reduced efforts for system integration and configuration – a first secure, industrial-grade end-to-end solution in production environments is possible within less than a day, says the company.
