I-LiKe Machines for CPPS is a solution for monitoring and supporting maintenance of industrial machines but also of complex production system.
Data can be either collected from PLC or from IoT sensors by using different protocols like OPC-UA or ModBus for machine level while MQTT and HTPP for cloud level.
In the case of simple IoT sensorial node, data can be obtained from electrical signals and they can concentrated into a specific simpler hardware, which is a solution easier than reading the data from the PLC.
Data are used to create the current and historical status of the machine and also to trigger a condition based maintenance system.
This asset (by HOLONIX) consists of a set of APIs that offer access to CPPS data managed by the iLike Machines for supporting monitoring and maintenance of machines.
BEinCPPS adopters are the first channels of exploitation to reach developers interested in using the APIs to access and use the data in the iLiKe Machines and to create new services, such as predictive maintenance or advanced analytics modules.
Furthermore, since the asset is integrated into the existing iLike Machines commercial solution of Holonix, the exploitation will be done using the commercial structure and services of the company.
