Siemens developed a hardware platform for edge applications as part of its Siemens Industrial Edge concept: the compact Simatic Edge Device works on the basis of the embedded industrial PC Simatic IPC227E, and features integrated connectivity to automation on the machine level. This allows manufacturing data to be captured and processed directly at the point of production. If there is a change to the framework conditions underlying the industrial application, Industrial Edge offers facility to adjust software applications on the Edge Device, keeping them right up to date using functional, feedback-free updates. The hardware comes with a closed all-metal housing, ensuring maximum industrial functionality for flexible, maintenance-free use under even the harshest of conditions. Rapid commissioning is guaranteed using pre-installed Edge software.
Edge computing enables the local feedback-free processing of large data volumes practically in real time. Industrial Edge also enables users to cut the costs of data storage and transmission, as large volumes of data are processed in advance and ex
clusively relevant data is subsequently sent to the cloud or the company’s own internal IT infrastructure. Siemens Industrial Edge supports cloud transmission protocols for Mindsphere, the open cloud-based IoT operating system from Siemens. In future, it will also support Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT), which will additionally guarantee the flexible exchange of data with other systems and clouds.
