Analysis and Data Acquisition
netIOT service

The network infrastructure made of controllers, actuators, sensors and switches forms the backbone of every automation system. Malfunctions often lead immediately to production downtime and thus to avoidable costs. In particular, the increasing interconnection of systems, caused by new structures in context with industrial IoT, holds the danger that disturbances, unintentionally or intentionally caused, can also arise from outside the automation segment.
The netIOT Diagnostics from Hilscher supports the plant operator in permanently monitoring the condition of the network infrastructure. Slowly emerging disturbances can ideally be detected before they cause a shutdown. If a sudden malfunction occurs, the netIOT diagnosis supports the user in identifying and correcting the causes quickly and purposefully. The web-based dashboard provides intuitive access to all important diagnostic information of the automation system. Access to it is possible at any time via PC, tablet or smartphone.
