moneo edgeConnect: the communication interface
Translates sensor data into readable information
With the help of moneo edgeConnect, devices and data sources can be connected to moneo OS. For example, an ifm IO-Link master with connected IO-Link sensors or diagnostic electronics for vibration can be read out by ifm together with the connected sensors. moneo edgeConnect thus enables the transfer of data from the machine level and translates it into readable information for processing in moneo's current and future apps and applications.
Using the appropriate connectors, moneo edgeConnect can even send the process data collected in moneo (including calculated values) to a cloud.
moneo edgeConnect thus builds bridges between the production and automation systems and the information systems of the IT department and cloud providers.
Currently moneo edgeConnect supports data transfer from ifm devices such as IO-Link masters (AL 13/19, see technical requirements), diagnostic electronics for vibration sensors (VSE) and ifm software agents from the machine level. In addition, moneo enables the transfer of data to the cloud platforms Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure and other third-party systems via MQTT. Further connectors are being developed.
