e-ControlNet – the modular software platform for industry 4.0 / IoT applications
Optimize processes. Reduce costs.
The “fourth industrial revolution” – or “industry 4.0” – stands for the digital transformation of virtually all sectors of the economy. The foundations for this are modern internet of things (IoT) applications that enable intelligent networking of systems, products and applications over the internet, opening up new potential for value creation. Distributed devices and machines produce ever-greater amounts of data through powerful sensor systems. Using IoT applications, this data can be analysed and transformed to optimize processes, reduce costs, and generate new products and services for new target groups.
From decentralised data management to centralised information management
Functions such as controlling, monitoring, analysis and invoicing are expected from a modern software solution today, regardless of industry, manufacturers, areas of application, product generations, communication paths, data volumes and content. The application must also offer excellent data security, performance and user friendliness.
e-ControlNet meets all these requirements in a comprehensive system solution.
e-ControlNet lets you deploy modular functionalities for the management of technical systems and devices worldwide on one service platform. Bi-directional communication integrates end devices seamlessly into all central processes, including service, logistics and billing. In this way, e-ControlNet makes the shift from decentralised management of individual data points to centralised information management of networked systems.
The analysis and reporting functions of e-ControlNet provide relevant data to all employees at all times.
Always well informed. Online anywhere.
The potential applications here are virtually unlimited. No matter whether it is vending machines, wind farms or thermal power stations, fleet management or building automation and hazard notification systems. It is possible to integrate all types of communication-capable systems, devices and machines. Access is available at any time, from anywhere, via an internet browser, smart phone or tablet.
The open interface concept of e-ControlNet integrates smoothly into your existing systems and workflows. Web services let you use the functionality of e-ControlNet at any time via external systems (service-oriented architecture, or SOA).
e-ControlNet is a modular software solution with numerous function modules for the administration and management of technical equipment and systems. Each module offers you a wide range of standard functions which can be expanded and customised based on your needs:
Monitoring. Acquisition of status and operating data from any device based on predetermined rules. Values can be stored or forwarded to other applications.
Analysis. Data evaluation and filtering according to predetermined rules, e.g. by period, limit or data type, or using machine learning technology. Presentation of history, history graph or in customer-specific visualization.
Reporting. The integrated report generator creates automatic reports according to specifications and sends them out via email.
Notification and escalation. Defined conditions trigger email or SMS notifications for users. Escalation management allows acknowledgement-dependent, multi-stage notification of other users.
