Alleantia enables industrial enterprises implementing an universal Industrial IoT architecture, interfacing existing and new systems with plug&play speed and easiness, with uniform access to machine information for all customer back-end systems and applications.
Alleantia products support a hybrid architecture (”Alleantia Flex”) for low-cost and quick data collection from old machines, perfectly operating and suitable for the production objectives. Autonomous Wi-Fi enable operating in environments where networking is very limited, thus reducing the total cost of Industrial IoT projects.
The wireless I/O modules connect to customers’ WiFi network or to gateways that can be configured in ‘Access Point’ mode, thus implementing several autonomous networks, connecting on few Ethernet points to customer’s network, or even operating through 3G/4G network and secure VPN. Of course, a fully wired as well as mixed architecture is also feasible.
Machines connection: lathes, mills, presses, benders, work centers and other sytems, through analogue or digital data collection, PLC, inverter and CNC integration, using Alleantia drivers’ from its Library of Things and Drivers’ Editor.
Production line / cell data: OEE, input and output elements (inbound and outbound pieces, workpieces in progress, total and partial counts for individual batches, etc.).
Machine alarms or line stops, triggering operator’s intervention or maintenance.
Specific signals adding remote Wi-Fi signal conditioning modules, as well as additional sensing sensors (photocells, vibration, probes, meters, etc.).
The Alleantia versatile and universal solution also suits well manual machining and assembling: specific sensors can be deployed such as photocells, probes, counters, microswitches etc. together with remote Wi-Fi modules, and the gateways for data collection, processing and distribution to Industry 4.0 applications.
