How to Choose a Good Computing Platform for Your IIoT
The market today is flooded with embedded solutions for the Industrial IoT. You can now choose from a wide variety of RISC-based embedded computers, single-board computers, and development boards to implement your IIoT solutions. With single-board computers such as Raspberry Pi available for for as low as US$ 40 per board, is it a good strategy to cast your loT with these development boards? What are some of the key factors that you must consider when choosing an embedded computing solution for your industrial applications?….
To date, most discussions about the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) have been about connecting new devices and rapidly bringing them online. In this white paper we look at the implications of bringing such a large number of devices online, namely, the need for efficient methods to collect information from these devices, and discuss how to handle the large amount of data collected from these devices.
Industrial IoT solutions are judged on their ability to adapt to various data acquisition needs and how they can transform the data collected from devices into useful business insights that can help decision makers. What makes an Industrial IoT solution truly stand out is the flexible data handling possibilities that it can provide….
Developing a Data Acquisition Platform for Industrial IoT Applications
The impact the Internet has had on the way humans live their lives has been unprecedented. It has allowed us to communicate and interact with each other in ways previously unimaginable. Recently, it has opened the door for what many are describing as something that will become more important to our everyday lives than the Internet, the Internet of Things (IoT). One of the most exciting possibilities is in industrial applications, more commonly referred to as the Industrial Internet of Things (Industrial IoT), where communication and interaction capabilities can be extended to devices or things used for factory automation, renewable energy applications, smart grids, intelligent transportation systems, and even oil and gas applications…..
Accelerate your IIoT-Ready Applications with Smart Industrial Computing
Data is at the heart of the Internet of things (IoT). To make critical data-informed decisions, businesses first need to capture and collect data from all sorts of devices over the Internet before converting the data into valuable business information. Moxa has applied its rich experience in the industrial automation field to provide industrial computing solutions that integrate data acquisition and device management for large-scale, Industrial IoT applications.
