With the susietec® toolset, Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), offers a combination of software, hardware and expertise, that enables companies to implement holistic digital transformation solutions. The Connect IoT bundle combines a powerful industrial computer platform with a low-code interface integration solution, which in the new release v3.1 offers additional versatile functions for machine manufacturer and operators.
The Kontron susietec® Connect IoT bundle combines the KBox A-250 industrial computer platform with the FabEagle®Connect low-code integration solution for easy interface integration, making it possible to standardize an integration level in smart factories without high-level language programming. With the new v3.1 release of FabEagle®Connect, data interfaces are now also available to the SQL databases Firebird, Microsoft SQL, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL and SQLite. In addition, C# code components make edge data processing flexible and freely customizable. The new live diagnose feature with filterable message monitor simplifies diagnostics during configuration and operation. Starting at the end of 2023, the cost-optimized industrial computer platform KBox A-250 will also be available as an option with factory preinstalled FabEagle®Connect, which enables a rapid start to connect machines.
Because, in addition to the new data interfaces, digital signals can also be recorded on the GPIO interface of the KBox A-250, the Connect IoT bundle is the ideal solution for connecting older machines. But even in modern production environments, where machines and devices are connected to cloud systems, all data is recorded at the machine thanks to the smart gateway, which processes the data locally and makes it reliably available to the cloud. With the new FabEagle®Connect code components, existing company-specific solutions can continue to be used.
The Kontron susietec® Toolset, consisting of ten specialized software solutions and nine hardware products, is based on the long-standing expertise of various software and hardware specialists from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Customers benefit from the experience and know-how gained from numerous international digitalization projects involving equipment providers, suppliers and manufacturers.
