Telit deviceWISE Solution Pillars

Industrial Drivers

Telit deviceWISE contains hundreds of drivers. Choose your driver, appoint it to the IP address and auto-enumerate all tag trees with real-time data reading and writing.

Drivers include:

  • OPC UA and OPC DA
  • Modbus
  • MTConnect
  • BACnet
  • Siemens
  • Rockwell
  • Mitsubishi
  • Omron
  • FANUC
  • Atlas Copco

Edge Logic

Transform your data doing parsing, math, algorithms and more. Create action triggers by building a logic workflow, setting alerts and calculating KPIs such as OEE. Build edge logic for machine monitoring, preventive maintenance, throughput analysis and more.

OT/IT Integration

Telit deviceWISE can integrate bidirectionally to many IT systems and local databases so your machines and systems can all speak the same language. You can transport data to and retrieve data from relational or non-relational databases, such as:

  • MongoDB
  • SQL
  • Oracle
  • PostgreSQL

Integrate with ERP and MES systems, including:

  • SAP
  • Oracle
  • Simatic
  • IBM Maximo

Machine and Process Data Visualization

Telit deviceWISE provides full IIoT capabilities and comes with an available SCADA/HMI system called Telit deviceWISE VIEW. deviceWISE VIEW enables customers to visualize data and create interfaces in a drag-and-drop dashboard builder. It makes building a visualization of factory or machine KPIs as easy as creating a PowerPoint presentation.

Use Case

Connected Factory

Telit deviceWISE and AWS are used by one of the world’s largest tire manufacturers. With 19 manufacturing sites in 12 countries, the customer chose the deviceWISE and AWS combination to digitize its manufacturing plants.

 

The Challenge

In each of its multiple sites, the customer has various types of machines that speak different protocols and has more than one MES system.  The customer’s objective was to digitize the manufacturing process and collect real-time machine data for factory performance visualization. The customer also wanted to add machine learning and data analytics to improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

 

The Deployment

The customer selected Telit deviceWISE to create standardization between the different machines and different IT systems. deviceWISE provides protocol translation so factories that run on Siemens, Rockwell or Mitsubishi controllers can be standardized with a unique protocol translation tool.

The customer also needed to collect data from external sensors, such as temperature sensors in the curing process. Telit deviceWISE has built-in interfaces for open protocols such as Modbus that make machine instrumentation an effortless process.

In addition to machine data and external instrumentation, the tire manufacturing process requires extensive quality control with full traceability. The full process data was collected and managed inside the deviceWISE platform by integrating deviceWISE with barcode readers. For the next step of the process, the customer added Telit deviceWISE VIEW dashboards for operators and managers. Since deviceWISE interconnected to the customer’s MES, they were able to create dashboards for quality control (e.g., comparing real process data to hypothetical optimum machine data) with drag-and-drop widgets.

 

AWS Connectivity

The customer’s extensive research showed that AWS would provide superior cloud functionalities, such as:

 

  • Storage and data lake
  • Data analytics
  • Machine learning

The customer decided to standardize on AWS for cloud services and use Telit deviceWISE to provide an interface between machine data, MES and ERP.
