Gateway between cloud, IT and production


Gateway between cloud, IT and production

To link cloud, in-company IT and production, Siemens has launched the Simatic IOT2050, a gateway based on the TI ARM processor family. Simatic IOT2050 is designed for industrial IT solutions for the acquisition, processing and transfer of data directly in the production environment. It can be used for connecting the production process to a cloud-based analysis of machine and production data. The new IoT gateway will also be equipped with remote edge functionality for easy integration into Siemens Industrial Edge solutions.

The gateway can also be retrofitted in already existing plants, where it harmonizes communication between different data sources, analyzes the data, and passes it on for evaluation to a cloud. This cloud can be MindSphere or any other solution preferred by the user.

The hardware of the new Simatic IOT2050 gateway has a compact design and is based on rugged, reliable and long-lasting industrial technology. The device is suitable for both wall and standard rail mounting, is equipped with a power-saving Texas Instruments ARM AM 6548 (+Secure Boot), 2 GB DDR4 RAM and multiple interfaces including two Gbit LAN, two USB, and a serial and Arduino interface. It comes with the Simatic Industrial OS already installed. Simatic IOT2050 can be easily expanded for tailor-made solutions with Arduino shields and mini PCIe cards. It also supports Linux based on Debian.

The Simatic IOT2050 is typically used for preventive machine maintenance and linking production to the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) level in order to minimize expensive production downtimes. Relevant indicators can be evaluated and impending signs of wear detected at an early stage. TSimatic IOT2050 acquires, processes and stores the relevant data. These are transferred to a cloud-based analysis tool, and the evaluated data then passed back from the cloud to the production maintenance system. This continuous data exchange completes the control loop for optimizing maintenance intervals in production plants.
