HMS Industrial Networks has joined the Thingworx Ready partner program and now releases an extension to the Netbiter Remote Management solution that connects to the Thingworx IoT platform.Through the new extension, data from Netbiter gateways can be presented directly to the ThingWorx IoT platform.
Available at the ThingWorx marketplace, the extension enables users to access data which is either stored in the Netbiter Argos cloud, or alternatively comes directly from field applications. In both cases, the data is forwarded from the field by industrial Netbiter gateways.
“Thanks to the new ThingWorx extension for Netbiter, users will get the best of both worlds, since the solution combines HMS’ experience in industrial communication and remote management with the leading ThingWorx IoT software platform. The solution ensures continuous and secure access to field data from the ThingWorx platform,” said Henrik Arleving, product line manager at HMS.
While the solution supports integration of existing Netbiter applications into the ThingWorx platform, it is primarily targeting device and machine OEMs looking for a way to get data from the field to perform analytics for purposes such as predictive maintenance. For these ThingWorx users, the Netbiter gateways will act as edge gateways for connectivity with their applications in the field.
When downloaded from the ThingWorx marketplace, users can open up the extension within ThingWorx to set up the data connection to Netbiter Argos. The extension interfaces to all available services in the Netbiter Argos REST API. Netbiter gateways ensure data availability from any type of field equipment, such as power generators or pump systems, after a straightforward data mapping procedure in Netbiter Argos using standardized templates.
As a result, users will benefit from all the advanced features in ThingWorx, such as machine learning algorithms and augmented reality which open up new, alternative ways of working, earning and saving money for OEMs, service staff as well as end users.
The ThingWorx extension for Netbiter Argos is the first solution to be released by HMS Industrial Networks under the ThingWorx Ready partner program.
