How can innius help machine users?
Using innius will help you to better understand the state of your machines, how efficiently they are operating, better predict when problems are likely to occur, respond faster when problems do arise, enable collaboration easily with different players, including machine manufacturers, and allow better informed decision making.
How can I use innius with my machines?
If your machines generate a data stream and can be connected to the internet, normally via a PLC, then they should be innius capable.
If the PLC uses the OPC UA or DA protocol, then it can be easily connected to the internet. If your PLC uses a protocol other than OPC, it can normally be connected to the internet using an eWON Flexy modem, running the innius machine integration software.
If you’d like to talk to us about the specifics of your machines, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
My production line is a mix of both hi-tech and older machinery. Isn’t that a problem?
No, you don’t need to connect everything in a production line. innius can deal with individual machines.
Do I need any other hardware, once my machines are connected?
innius is a cloud computing based service, so there is no requirement for on-premises servers. Just a mobile devices or a desktop computer to work with innius.
Can innius data be shared?
Yes, through the security groups mechanism, it is possible to share selected data with other entities. For example: a user decides to share sensor data with a machine maintenance company, but keeps the documents and media hidden.
What about security?
The main thing to consider is that innius only reads your machine data, it can’t send anything back to your PLC or machines, which obviously has huge security advantages.
In addition to that a number of industry standard security steps have been taken. These are fully detailed in the Knowledge Base. Or if you want to know more talk to us.
What is the pricing model?
innius operates on a monthly subscription pricing model, giving you access to both the desktop admin app and mobile app. The cost depends mainly on the data usage in addition to a number of other factors. Please get in touch to talk about your specific needs.
