Cloud analytics solution for industrial IoT applications

Arrow Electronics is making available a cloud analytics solution for industrial internet of things (IIoT) applications, based on MindSphere, an industrial IoT-as-a-service solution.

The solution covers everything from sensors and connectivity hardware to analysis and reporting software. Arrow worked closely with codestryke, Shiratech and Siemens to deliver the solution that will enable companies implementing Industry 4.0 to access best-in-class hardware, tools and consultancy services that match their specific requirements.

The networking and monitoring of plants and facilities are some of the most important trends in industrial digitalization and condition monitoring of machines and devices is now essential for efficient predictive maintenance, having a significant impact on overall equipment effectiveness.

Arrow's solution gathers data from sensors and transmits it to the cloud via an edge gateway, where it can be visualized and analysed through a customised dashboard. Through the continuous monitoring and collection of all relevant operating data, patterns can be observed and emerging faults identified, enabling maintenance to be carried out on a more accurately scheduled basis. In addition to helping users avoid the disruption and costs associated with unplanned downtime by optimising maintenance intervals, cloud analytics can also analyse running costs and help increase overall service life of equipment.

Arrow worked with Shiratech to develop iCOMOX, a hardware and software solution for condition-based monitoring of industrial plants, machines, as well as other assets. It is connected to the cloud with MindSphere. Using advanced analytics and AI, MindSphere powers IoT solutions from the edge to the cloud and uses data from connected products, plants and systems to optimise operations and help deploy new business models.

codestryke develops customised IoT solutions and offers consultancy to help organisations plan and roll out IIoT deployments successfully and at scale. Its expertise covers app development, edge and cloud analytics and the operation of cloud infrastructure. codestryke also has an edge gateway offer (including a runtime), PLC programming and connectivity solutions.

Arrow said that customer requirements are identified and specified during a workshop with Arrow’s support team and installation and assembly is then coordinated and implemented jointly.
