Sensor and controls specialist ifm electronic will be showcasing the edgeGateway – a reliable connection between sensors and IT – on stand A74 at this year’s PPMA Show. Visitors will be able to see the edgeGateway technology in action as well as automation solutions for making food safely, error-proofing the production process and sending data analytics securely to the cloud.
edgeGateway provides an easy and convenient way to send sensor data to the cloud. The system first translates the sensor data into readable information and then sends it to the IT infrastructure. It’s easy to integrate into existing systems as it supports Microsoft Azure, Google, AWS and Cumulocity.
The ifm team will also be on hand to discuss how specially developed food application sensors, such as position sensors, process sensors, control systems and connection technology, can support strict hygiene requirements and achieve maximum uptime.
