August 20, 2018 - HMS Industrial Networks introduced an edge gateway with native support for the OSIsoft PI System. The solution offers companies leveraging the PI System a path to access critical data produced by their manufacturing systems.
The solution eliminates the barriers associated with extracting data from legacy machines and capturing data from remote facilities. The solution is built on of HMS’s edge gateway solution, the eWON Flexy.
The Flexy edge gateway is designed to simplify the process of extracting real-time data from machines using serial and Ethernet communications protocols by offering I/O drivers for PLC manufacturers including Siemens, Allen Bradly, Mitsubishi, ABB and others. There is no software development effort required to access the data.
The Flexy solution offers full support for secure access to remote locations including user access control, over the air software updates and fully encrypted communications. Remote locations with no internet access are easily connected leveraging the Flexy 3G or 4G cellular backhaul options.
HMS will be demonstrating this system at OSIsoft Super Regional Event in Washington D.C. on August 21st and 22nd.
