OBJECTIVE

Support monitoring critical health parameters of machines in an industrial environment and raising alerts to maintenance personnel when any of the parameters breach configured threshold values.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

LTI needed an industrial gateway which can log their industrial sensor data and send data to cloud server periodically.

CHALLENGES

• Interfacing various industrial sensors for accurate data
• Space constraint in fitting the HMI Electronics – Capacitive Touch, Battery within the available IP66 Enclosure along with the sensors
• Optimized power management for longer battery Life;
• Boot-up time optimization
• Porting Android application from Kitkat to Marshmallow

Implementation year: Aug-2020

EDGE SOLUTION & APPROACH

  • Unizen proposed Industrial Edge Gateway that is logging industrial sensor data over ModBus protocol and sending the raw sensor data to the configured cloud server
  • The Gateway supports acquiring data from multiple industrial sensors and sending the data to the Unizen Server. Server Application will be hosted on a server machine on the customer network. Alternatively, Unizen can maintain a private cloud to manage the data from multiple customers with secured access to each customer
  • Unizen specified the benefits on cloud server where LTI is free to select on which cloud platform they want to host their cloud server and web application
  • Alternatively, if LTI do not wish to host cloud server and web application on their platform, then Unizen can provide a platform to host cloud server and web application to maintain log and database
