We joined forces with MicroStrategy to demonstrate how the combination of our tools can create a complete Industrial IoT monitoring system. With this kind of effective IoT monitoring companies and organizations can detect events and respond to them in seconds.

In an average IoT system, there are multiple sensors and devices monitoring environmental and internal data and collecting vast amounts of data. Through the use case we presented here, you can see how data like this can be monitored properly, and used in real-time.

You can see the full white paper here.

Collecting and analyzing data from industrial machines

 Industrial automation is the ideal use case for developing IoT. It allows organizations to focus on intelligent process control and automation. With access to previously unavailable data, companies are now able to transform their operations to increase speed, productivity, and ROI.

The Zerynth platform is a set of tools that simplifies acquiring data from industrial machines and sending it to the Cloud or 3rd-party BI solutions.  The Zerynth 4ZeroBox is a versatile data acquisition unit, compatible with both older and more modern industrial machines, as a machine-to-cloud interface. It is powered by Zerynth OS, a multithreaded real-time OS that supports Python and  C programming. With the 4ZeroBox any industrial machinery and equipment can be transformed and enabled to easily join Industry 4.0.

As a demonstration, we took the case of a specific machine that produces face masks and imagined how to monitor the whole production process: relevant information included power consumption, the number of pieces produced, the total number of pieces produced in the current shift, the status of the other machines of the line, etc.

With the data collected, it’s time to extract insights and unlock value in the production chain. This requires a modern, open, enterprise platform that can scale while keeping data secure. We created a dossier in MicroStrategy that shows the latest collected values and the average values obtained in the previous recordings. Users can have the image of the machine displayed in the dossier and select the station they want to investigate.
